Trample each other in a mad scramble to climb to the top of the tower? I guess AI will self destruct, then.

Now, now, that's not the only way the average human deals with problems. It could also stand there waiting for someone else to do something, or find a way to pin the blame on the victim.

If the AI must kill either a criminal or a person who is not a criminal, for instance, it will kill the criminal.

And if it must kill either a homeless person or a person who is not homeless, it will kill the homeless person.

After all, if you don't want to be chosen for an out-of-control car to slam into you, you should just stop loitering while homeless, or black, or "criminal", or effeminate - that's just looking for trouble.
