I read your mind that you would type such a thing. YouNo, it's not. Criminal code always places a significance on the motivation of the accused. Killing someone with the motivation of saving yourself clearly results in a different penalty than >>> killing someone out of spite. <<<
And you (or someone else) knows that such-and-such killing was "done out of spite!?"
If you killed someone in self-defense, it's not murder. And while all murders are killings,
not all killings are murders.
Actually, I think Danger's just reading the 911 call transcript, where Zimmerman mutters "fu**ing coons" as he chases after Martin.
I wouldn't care if Zimmerman said those words then or not, as far as shooting goes.
It would form more of an image about his loves, hates, etc.
I suppose in that case, that axe-murderers should get the same penalty for making a person dead as a rape survivor acting in self-defense, a policeman stopping a crime or a soldier in a field of battle.
No, the "victim is just as dead" means the alleged mindset toward the victim shouldn't matter.
But why should any of that matter if the victim is just as dead?
They're apples and oranges, as that phrase is specific to this hate-crime
mind thing. What it boils down to is it being about or not the killing/murder of
this person by this other person.
I'm already clear that not all killings are murders. I don't demand the death penalty
for someone who kills my appetite.
Look who suddenly became the expert in reading minds!
thought you had read every intention of that remark by me
(about the mind-reading), instead of asking for clarification, etc.
