If I killed someone / took out vengence on, a very bad person who did a very, very, bad and immoral thing to another human being - to the point where I KNOW the jury would have some sympathy on me, how much jail time would I be looking at? Minimum and Maximum? Seriously.
well, from what I've learned from criminal justice 105...
it seems like you've obviously premeditated the murder, that your willful in carrying out the murder yourself, and there is deliberation...
So it would be murder in the 1st degree no question.
I would guess that you would be looking at life in prison. Possibly the death penalty, depending on how you carried out the murder.
“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.”
Just read Crime and Punishment and save yourself the headache.
Paper rage aside, this is a question that has intrigued me too. (I am NOT going to kill anybody, every got that? It's just a thought experiment) Like, what if somebody killed that Austrian piece of crap who raped his daughter and imprisoned his illegitimate children/grandchildren in the basement? Of course by law, you would convict that person, but the moral repugnance of the Austrian's crime is such that honestly, if I were sitting on that jury, I would give his murderer as light a rap as possible. Heck, deep down in my heart, I would thank his murderer for ridding the world of him. You can't tell me that doesn't influence juries in cases like this.
I guess the judge has to convict, but I don't think anyone in the courtroom would think you did the wrong thing....at all.
There really is a real person I was thinking about when posting this. I'm not going to kill him though. Don't have it in me. But he deserves a good beat down.
... are you thinking of exacting retribution AGAIN on the person who took your parking spot when you had the Achiles issue?
FWIW, WHY are you getting that paper? Can't you get it all on-line?
Doesn't the answer to this question depend on whether or not Alan Shore is defending the case?
Or whether Pauly Shore has Jury Duty?
