  1. I never said she wasn't at fault, and yes - she is 100% to blame. If you would scroll way back up you will see me say that. It is call depraved indifference. It is when you had the power to stop a murder but intentionally allowed to happen. Examples: 1. You know that Joe Schmo intends to kill someone, but instead of either acting against it or calling the police, you turn a blind-eye to it. 2. You create a situation where under normal circumstances risks death, then someone falls into that situation, you then cognitively decline to help prevent the death from happening
  2. Murder is different from vehicular homicide, and different from manslaughter. By default, all killings are manslaughter. All deaths caused by another person are homicides(some are justifiable). If you don't like the penalties for vehicular homicide, especially those by DUI - then have the law changed. How do you know she "knowingly got in her car AND went the wrong way"? I'm sure the judge would like to hear how you know that. Intent must be to intent to kill, not to do other things that result in a death. As you describe is in fact voluntary manslaughter. If she wa
  3. PA Title 18, Chapter 25 § 2502. Murder. (a) Murder of the first degree.--A criminal homicide constitutes murder of the first degree when it is committed by an intentional killing. (b) Murder of the second degree.--A criminal homicide constitutes murder of the second degree when it is committed while defendant was engaged as a principal or an accomplice in the perpetration of a felony. (c) Murder of the third degree.--All other kinds of murder shall be murder of the third degree. Murder of the third degree is a felony of the first degree. (d) Definitions.--As used
  4. No, it is just as valid comparison as saying that a DUI homicide is murder. MURDER REQUIRES THAT YOU INTEND TO KILL THE OTHER PERSON, OR THAT YOU ALLOWED THE DEATH TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU COULD HAVE STOPPED IT. What is so hard to understand? Are you psychic enough to be able to say that Franco intended to kill the occupant of that other vehicle? You cannot claim she had depraved indifference because that would require that she wasn't impaired to make a proper judgment. If you do not believe me, go consult a lawyer. I am 100% correct on this. Murder and manslaughter are two
  5. Nice try to you... Murder requires intent or depraved indifference. All other homicides are manslaughter. Words have meanings. Are you going to tell me that the color orange is now called "blue"?
  6. An only intent to kill or depraved indifference is murder. Manslaughter is causing a death without intent/indifference.
  7. She didn't intentionally kill someone. How about you hit a kid that runs out into the street and be charged with murder because you were intentionally driving to work.
  8. Murder requires intent or depraved indifference. Manslaughter is causing a death by negligence, whether voluntarily or involuntarily. It wasn't murder. I'm not sticking up for her, I am pointing out that murder is a specific crime. To merely cause the death of someone isn't murder. To INTENTIONALLY kill someone, or to intentionally allow their death to happen, is murder.
  9. She hasn't been sentenced yet. She just plead guilty. The absolute minimum she can service is 3 years if all charges are concurrent, because of grading and sentencing guide lines. Homicide by vehicle has a 3yr min, on up to 10 years. Then factor in the rest, which the judge could run a mix of concurrent or consecutive. Odds are she will get more, but not the maximum because she plead guilty.
  10. Perps have used it too to try to divert attention.
  11. There may, there may not be - if they do have suspect(s), they may not be announcing such to keep them from running until there is evidence enough to arrest them. Arresting a person too soon, without evidence, can result in the charges getting tossed permanently.

  13. Trucks returning to fire again. Must have sparked back up.
