** Earlier in the same episode, three of the Sisters (10032, 10039 and 13577) react to the discovery that Misaka 19090 has been dieting and reading a women's magazine by chasing her down like red-eyed demons. We never find out what happened. On the other hand, it's a case of DeliberateValuesDissonance here: all Misaka sisters are part of a HiveMind and thus behave exactly the same, with the experiences of one affecting the experiences of all, so if one Misaka behaves differently, the ''entire HiveMind'' is at danger of being affected which could very quickly put them into a dangerous situation.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': One could seriously make this argument in regards to Jorah Mormont. Considering that other nobles in Westeros routinely partake in murder and torture, getting sentenced to death for selling a couple of poachers into slavery seems downright ''tame'' in comparison, particularly since, in the books, one of Ned Stark's own bannermen is the Bastard of Bolton, who ''skins'' people for fun! That said, it's very clear that slavery is SeriousBusiness in Westeros as far as crime goes. Even the Ironborn go through some effort to distinguish their thralls from slaves, and are disgusted with the practice. Of course, poachers are still people and Jorah's reasons for selling them, getting money to lavish his GoldDigger trophy wife's lifestyle is fairly petty and the situation is likely compounded by the fact that he blames Ned Stark for chasing him out rather than taking responsibility for his actions.

* Going with DeliberateValuesDissonance in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' where the problem of Black crime is solved by making all drug or violent crime offenses punishable by hanging if the perpetrator is Black, requiring the trial and sentence to wrap up within a week with no appeal (or on the spot, for failing a drug test) and banning Black families from cities. Since the book is an explicit TakeThat against all forms of liberalism, this works great and is accepted by all as a reasonable solution, particularly the [[LesCollaborateurs Council Of Responsible Negroes]]

* In ''Literature/TheMartian'', Watney repeatedly states that he's not mad at Lewis for stranding him on Mars, as there was a violent dust-storm and everyone thought he was dead. What he ''is'' pissed off at her for is [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking her terrible taste in music]], leaving him with nothing but her collection of 1970's disco to listen to.

* In an episode of the {{Narm}}tastic show ''Series/SeventhHeaven'', a TotallyRadical [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy wigger]] calls Lucy a bitch. For the rest of the episode, using the B-word is likened to raping someone. But, since this is ''Series/SeventhHeaven'' we're talking about, it turns out that [[spoiler: the bully was just hiding behind a JerkassFacade to fit in with the cool kids. Cue the {{Anvilicious}} {{Aesop}} about [[PeerPressureMakesYouEvil not giving in to peer pressure]]]].
