Because the Left Thinks Responsibility for the Consequences of One’s Actions Is Unfair

JusticeOr Something. The Left REALLY hates felony murder, because they don’t think you should be held accountable for the consequences of your actions. Even when those consequences are pretty easy to see. Florida’s felony murder statute has some locals facing murder charges, without ever having pulled a trigger.

They discuss 2 cases: One I don’t care about. (Drug dealer kills someone who tried to steal his drugs.) The other I do care about.

Five people tried to invade a home. One of them was shot and killed by the homeowner. The four others are charged with 2nd degree felony murder under Florida law.

The argument? They are young (17ish). They didn’t think it through. Do you think at 17 they understand the difference between good and evil? Right and wrong? But then the Left doesn’t admit there are such things.

My first posting on this incident can be found at this link.

  1. There is one problem with the felony murder rule, and that is, since the killing resulted in a murder charge, it is counted as a murder in the Uniform Crime Reports, even though the actual killing was a justifiable homicide. Forty-six states have this rule, so if each state uses it once a month, that means the number of murders is falsely inflated by 552 every year. So the felony murder rule contributes to a false number of recorded murders, and an inflated murder rate.
