So are US people ok with the idea of killing someone over a few bucks?
Shouldn't the death penalty by expanded to all financial crime then?
What's the threshold, so they were putting some cash into an atm, $500- ?

The robbery suspect, who remains at large, will face felony murder charges in the killing, Ogg said. A $30,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his capture.

“We’re going to focus on catching the robbery suspect who started this chain of events,” she said. “I know we can find this killer with your help. Someone knows who he is.”
That's an interesting leap being made there !
So the person who may have had a gun is the killer (he wasn't apprehended, it could have been a fake, it could have been unloaded) and the tool who fired the round is ok.
I want somebody held accountable, because this family shouldn’t continue to suffer like this.
Because vengeance will make everything ok?
Is that a god botherer belief?

When somebody dies during a felony, the felon can be charged with that death even if the death was indirect.

yup
i found it quite interesting that you can take your ex to places where crime is rampant in the hope that eventually one will happen close enough to you that you can shoot her in the head .. you get to rittinhouse and the perp gets the blame

Yeah. I can see why you want to draw an equivalence between these two scenarios.

In one case, we have an actor, using what he thought was a prop gun, to film a scene in a movie.

In the other case, we have a man who fired a gun with the intent to kill* a human being - but mistakenly killed a different one.





*Please don't embarrass yourself with some bullshit about him trying to wound his target.
Do you read english?

Steam said "Shooting a gun in a manner that kills another person, when the person killed was in no way committing any kind of illegal act, is in fact a crime....You're not allowed to kill people and just say "oops, my bad.""

Steam is wrong. Do you disagree?

So, it's perfectly legal to kill people?

Gosh, I really really want to live in your neighborhood! It must be ever so nice there!

I made no comment on what Steam wrote. You demanding I comment on it now is bullshit.

You seemed to think the situation with Baldwin is (somehow) relevant to the thread. Else, why bring it up?

But, yeah. Using a gun as a prop for filming, and finding out someone fucked up in that a live round was included is exactly the same as what happened to Arlene Alvarez.

You seemed to think the situation with Baldwin is (somehow) relevant to the thread. Mind reading again?

Else, why bring it up? Why not?

Is one more dead than the other?
