Scenario: You are an eyewitness to a crime: A man has robbed a bank, but instead of keeping the money for himself, he donates it to a poor orphanage that can now afford to feed, clothe, and care for its children. You know who committed the crime. If you go to the authorities with the information, there’s a good chance the money will be returned to the bank, leaving a lot of kids in need. What do you do?

I wouldn't tell. Banks rob people everyday. Throw people out of their homes if they're late on their mortgage or mess on your credit if you miss a payment on your loan. They charge stupid over draft fees and charge interest. So on and so forth. They just make up silly bs policy crap.

Stealing is still a crime regardless of what you do with what you have stolen or who you have stolen from. There is nothing noble in forcibly taking away someone's money and giving it to someone else. If you really cared about those charities then you would just put up your money instead of stealing from someone else to do it. If stealing from one person is justified then that same justification can be used to steal from anyone including you. I imagine the thief in this story would not find the theft of his money to be such a wonderful thing which only defines his own hypocrisy in setting one standard for others and a different standard for himself. If it is not good enough for him then why should it be good enough for anyone else?
