Ah, I remember this one. I can't remember the exact terms, but it was a test of the level of personal morality or something worded similarly to that. A person who would say 'no, stealing is bad because it is against the law' has a more juvenile-type sense of morality than the person who says 'I will steal it and then turn myself in'.
This particular version twists it to be more whiny/selfish, however, which bothers me [I stole, but I shouldn't have to go to jail! weh!]; the original options should have been included, and then the more selfish ones as in-betweens.
At any rate, on the original I agreed with the option of 'yes, I will steal it and then turn myself in'; it would allow me to save a life and satisfy society's existing systems while being at peace with myself. You never see the world's greatest peacemakers and protestors complaining when they have to serve jail time, however unjust. Bearing with it is what makes a statement to the world, and in this hypothetical situation, it would bring others to question the intentions and morality of the shopkeeper I stole from and the system that punished me for saving a life.
