I've always had a lot of trouble with giving someone the death penalty based on how horrified we are by the outcome of their crime. Surely the intent and the action should be the relevant factors, not the outcome, especially if the outcome was not easily predictable by the criminal.

It's an interesting point.
I've heard there's a question some researchers ask little kids...which kid did something worse, Jimmy who spilled a little ink when he was just fooling around, or Billy, who made a big ink spill when he was trying to be helpful. Intentionality is a big part of the law, even though it can be faked, and the people who are dead and injured on that train are no less dead or injured because the guy might not have meant it.

Might not have meant it? He's not responsible because he didn't think through his actions?
Bah...take him out of the gene pool...quickly.

I think he already has bred, too late.
Daddy Darwin a little slow on the trigger.

I wish to show my appreciation to the wreitr for rescuing me from this type of setting. After researching throughout the world-wide-web and coming across tips that were not powerful, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive minus the solutions to the issues you have solved all through this site is a crucial case, and the ones that could have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn't encountered your web site. Your personal understanding and kindness in touching the whole thing was tremendous. I don't know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. It's possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to recommend your web blog to any individual who wants and needs support about this problem.
