John (Q) Part II

Post  Admin on Fri Jun 01, 2012 5:45 am

Taking hostages for any reason is wrong, but it seems to have worked for John Q's son getting a heart transplant. What do you think would have happened if John Q did not take hostages, and what this act reasonable because of the circumstances? (Explain your answer) pig

If John didn't did not take hostages

Post  Anna~ on Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:34 am

If John did not take hostages, he won't be sent to court, but, may be, his lovely son would die in weakness. Even though I don't appreciate such an extreme action, I think his action was useful in some degree. His drew the social attention to his son and the people who didn't have the medical treat insurance like him. John was a great father and husband. He was also a very kind person. He never though of hurting anyone else.

if i were in his situation, i might take the same action since no other choice was left. he tried everthing he could but still he couldn't get his son saved. i can empathize with his despair.
If he didn't do so, his son might be dead. so it seems that the end has justified the approach. But I don't think this is a reasonable way to save life -- by taking hostage of other people's life. If somebody needs an emergency surgery and the hospital stuff is in hostage, it might cost that person's life.

john Q part 2

Post  ELLA@ on Sun Jun 03, 2012 9:27 am

if i were john, i will do the same thing, because i have no other alternatives. obviously his action works. what he did arouse social care and save his son's life. he didn't really want to hostage anyone, what he really wants to do is to make his son's name on the transplant list. actually his action not only help his son, but also help those american who have no health care insurance. he is a great father and a great husband. it is a good film. what john did moves us deeply. he deserves God's love.

About“Taking hostages for any reason is wrong, but it seems to have worked for John Q's son getting a heart transplant. ”
I have to say that this world is strange sometimes, because just like this film, if he did what others normally will do, I believe it’s hard or impossible for his son to get the chance. However, it’s wrong to blame him, too. What you can ask a desperate father do better? One point I want everyone to pay attention to is that he is lucky for he succeeded while there are thousands of them failed even in this way.

If John Q did not take hostages, his son was probably going to die. There were so many problems to be solved, if the hospital would have an operation for his son without money. The parents couldn’t afford the treatment and His son did not have time to wait any more. If so, that was another case of tragedy.

reason for reasonale

Post  emma-lee on Mon Jun 04, 2012 6:46 am

Under the circumstances, this act was reasonable because there was no way for John Q to choice any more. He couldn’t watch his son die without doing something. What’s more, the gun was safety for he didn’t aim to hurt anybody and he was kind to the hostages. At the same time, he didn’t disturb the doctor to save others. There were many people who had the same situation with him, which reveal the government’s dereliction of duty. The social problem and the love for his son make the public stood on him.

his son needs a new heart but he he has no choice. he choose to take hostage and break the law. if he does't take the hostage we will not to see the happy ending at all. whatever the end is he saved his son and his son is health now, that is the point. in my eyes, john is not afraid the end at all. he has no means to hurt anyone, he just want to save his son. it is no right to break the law, but he has no choice. it is not his fault, it is the society's. if the society has a sound insurance system, he will not to choose take the hostage.

John Q is brave and he did the right thing of a father. No every father can do this and every child has a timely heart for transplant. Every day there are many people died, but we cannot watch our family even child dying. And nowadays the hospital is filled with darkness; it seems that no one can keep our life.

A reasonable way

Post  Juliaye on Tue Jun 05, 2012 5:04 pm

I can understand John Q’s feelings. He was too anxious and he had no other ways to solve the problem. In addition, his wife shouted to him to do something to save his son. Under such circumstance, he finally decided to do something. Even though this method was too extreme and would hurt other people, he finally achieved his purpose. If he didn’t do something, his son’s name wouldn’t possibly on the list, and also he never could get enough money to give his son an operation, so he would lose his son forever.

If he hadn't taken hostages

Post  RileyYin on Thu Jun 07, 2012 3:57 pm

WE all admit that it is wrong to take hostages or threathen other people 's life for any reason. The reason why Jhon is successful is that he is really a kind person and means no harm to other people. the most important is that he moves other people profoundly. However, if he hadn't taken hostages, either he or his son may die. I believe he couldn't collect enough money within such a short time. As to the hospital, they have their own principles, they won't break the rules for people who are poor.

I agree with Ella. If I were john, I would do the same thing. Maybe it is illegal, but it would save my son’s life. I have no other choices. It is the only way to get some help. While, his action works. What he did arouse whole society’s care and he finally save his son's life. All the people were moved by his action. “I never want to hurt anyone. The only person I want to hurt is myself”, John said. What he really wanted to do was to make his son's name on the transplant list and tried to save his son in the limited time. Actually, if he didn't do so, his son might be dead. So it seems that the hostage is the only way to appeal help. Although taking hostage of other people is not a reasonable way to save life, in the movie, it is really helpful. His action not only helped his son to survive, but also helped those American who have no health care insurance. He is really a great father. It is a wonderful film. Father’s love is great!!

There is a traditional saying, "no emotions involved in laws". But in life, the principle of harmonizing emotions with laws is more practical. The starting point of John Q's is good so that he didn't harm anybody, instead, the patient thanked him. But after all, he broke the law and disrupted public order and normal life. So he should be punblished by the law. Otherwise, the law will be ruined. Anyhow, he received the tolerance of the public.

Indeed, John's action of taking hostage is illegal. However, in such a situation, he can do nothing but to take a risk. His son si dying and his wife nearly collapses. He must do something. Certainly, he has made full preparetion before doing this. What shocks me most is that at the end, he is determined to kill himself by the gun which has only one bullet for himself and gives his heart to his son. Maybe at first, he hopes the authority of the hospital can put his son's name on the list. After the intertwining with the police and the authority of the hospital, John gets to know that he can only save his son by himself. At last he decides to give his own heart to his son. I think that is why John get excused by others even though his behaviors are illegal.

In normal times, it is wrong for anyone to take hostages for any reason, but it doesn’t works in this movie, in this particular situation. For John Q, if he didn’t take a hostage to save his son’s life, the only thing which will happen to him is waiting, waiting for the death of his beloved son. Because he have done what he can do to save his son’s life, but he failed. This is the last way and the only way he can go. And his action did works, and his action not only helps his dear son, but also helps those who have no health care insurance. At last, his son got a heart transplant. He is a great father, a responsible man.

If john did not take hostage, there is no doubt that his son would die. It is impossible for him to get so much money. Nobody would help him and the hospital would not put his son’s name on the list. So, the poor little boy cannot get treatment and he would die in a few days. His act was reasonable because the public stood on his side, besides, he did what many Americans wanted to do for many Americans did not have the insurance and the medical care is too expensive for them.

Post  Vicki Z on Mon Jun 11, 2012 6:59 am

If John didn't take the risky action, then his son will have no possibility live. That was not reasonable, not right. But it did work. That is what the realistic society is. The laws and regulations are made to guarantee every citizen, but, in fact, they just protect certain people's interest, the rich, the men with power. Sometimes, we should do something dangerous. John drew the social attention to his son and the people who didn't have the medical treat insurance like him. Then he is also a hero.

Taking hostages under such a circumstance as what John Q has met is not wrong without doubt. For him, his son's life is far more important, and after all he didn't intend to hurt anybody. But I also agree that his actions breaches the law and he should get penalty for it. It's normal that the systems of social life are not well-formed, and it need some sacrifice if we want to change it. What John Q has suffer from is the sacrifice he need to make, but his sacrifice has its compensation at last.

in fact,we know that his son must die if Jone dodn't take any hostage. anationd taking hostage is, I think , also beyond Jone"s expectation. he was pushed to do this kind of thing. he wws a very kind-hearted man. during the time in the hospital, he also helped many people. so, when watching his action,I have already predicted that the ending of Jone's family would not be bad. first, he is a father, so, no matter what he did,as long as the aim was to save his poor son, he could be excused.
