The law of causality states that each cause has a specific effect, and that this effect is dependent on the identities of the agents involved.
Surely we need to consider the environmental and psychological factors that may have indirectly contributed to the tragic death of Jacintha Saldanha.
Was she experiencing difficulties in her personal life? Did she have a pre-existing condition that may have been triggered by the stress of the media attention?
The hospital management needs to examine their own consciences before pointing the finger at the DJs. Was Jacintha threatened or condemned for her actions? Was the prospect of disciplinary action or dismissal dangling over her like the sword of Damocles?
Vilifying the asinine DJ’s for a puerile and childish prank is one thing, but accusing them of manslaughter is another thing entirely.
