OK, the setup is how Missouri must be a strange state for having felony murder. How you can be convicted of murder in Missouri without killing anyone.
And as usual, they focus on one case, that may or may not help their cause. (Though that case started when the bad guys wouldn’t stop over a busted headlamp.) If you get 9 paragraphs in, they finally cough up a bit of truth.
Missouri is one of 45 states in which someone can be charged with murder without actually killing someone through a mechanism known as felony murder.
The bold text is in the original.
So, 90 percent of states have some version of felony murder. (I’m guessing California, a few other Left-coast states, New York, and Illinois, but I’m not sure.)
So in the vast majority of this country, you can be held accountable for the perfectly foreseeable consequences of your actions. Rob a store with your buddy, and he shoots someone, that’s on you. Don’t like that outcome? Don’t rob stores.
But that’s not fair, according to the Left. Holding people responsible for their actions? That is so unfair.
