    Cocaine, Escorts, and blackmail

    Came across this story and thought it might interest some.

    In brief: guy goes to bawdy house very regularly, buys coke from madam, shares with escorts. One day, escort convulses, madam says "she'll take care of it", guy leaves. Escort dies, madam tries to blackmail guy, police eventually find guy. Guy found guilty for contributing to escort's death by purchasing coke (parag. 604). Sentenced to 5 years in jail.

    Lessons some may draw from this: (1) Don't do drugs; (2) If a girl is sick, help her yourself right away and don't trust others to help her; (3) If you reveal your identity, you may get blackmailed, even if you're a long time client.

    Wise words! Even if you are not accused of directly contributing to someone's death, you may be accused of not helping out someone in obvious danger. That usually makes some noise in your entourage and is hard to keep hush-hush. You're in much less trouble if you call 9-1-1 yourself because an escort is in danger than if the cops show up at your house or work later to investigate a suspicious death. Of course, you have to give your identity but cooperation is always seen as positive from the cops & you can probably ask them to contact you a little more discreetly later on for further questions.

    It's called the good samaritain law, and yes, not matter who and when, you are obliged to help someone in distress. It isn't applied much, but it can be, and in some cases should be.
