Fast and Furious
"Desperate times call for desperate measures." This statement has been used to justify both noble and not so noble acts.
Some have used this statement to justify potentially illegal activities for the sake of survival. In the famed musical, "Les Miserables," the main protagonist Jean Valjean was imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread in order to feed his sister's starving child. The antagonist, a police inspector who goes by the name, Javert, has built his sense of morality and ethics on the strict observance to the law. His overly-aggressive adherence to the law, however, leads to internal battle within himself as he attempts to reconcile what's truly right and wrong.
