  1. Went from mid 60s to low 40s in a few hours <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

  2. why dont you two get a room ^
  3. he's lucky the child was a christian infidel.......... otherwise it would've been death by stoning
  4. who helped your country to get its independence from the Brits in 1776, you bloody moron?
    A french general called LaFayette, so stfu.
  5. LaFayette spoke French with a Texan accent.
  6. When the machines gain consciousness and revolt Hemistage will be their Robespierre.

    edit -- and he'll unwittingly save humanity by directing their metallic wrath at ghetto trash bags and leftists
  7. in law its the outcome that matters, not the way you got there usually.

    intentions dont change reality. kid was still killed no matter how you slice it.
  8. But that's arbitrary and random. Why doesn't 'mens rea' apply here? I don't think it makes any sense to be convicted of a crime you never intended to commit; that's just bad luck / an 'act of god' not a crime.
  9. so killing someone by falling asleep at the wheel and mowing down some pedestrians shouldnt be an offense because you didnt intend to commit a crime?
  10. You should be convicted of dangerous driving or something not murder.

    What bugs me more than anything is how any time a building collapses for whatever reason the public outcry forces prosecutors to track down some unwitting contractor or architect or whatever and charge him with x-hundreds counts of murder! Like he intended to murder these people when he screwed the wrong bolts on the wrong nuts or whatever.

    Point: just because something bad happened doesn't mean a crime happened. Only Jews/lawyers gain from thinking like that. Sometimes bad shit just happens and we need to accept it.

    edit -- In this case, Egypt can't have it both ways: allow people to beat kids, then try to prosecute them when the odd one dies. Either it's illegal to beat kids or its not.
  11. just say "gross negligence".
  12. This is why we have criminal law and tort law.

    Things aren't always black and white, which is why we have courts too.

    It may not be immediately obvious at first, but once you start to learn about the law it makes sense.
