If I were to suddenly discharge my firearm in a public park shooting at squirrels and hit a little kid in the head what charges do you believe I should face?There's certainly jail time and punishment involved. I'm not saying they should be let off the hook or even get only 3 months in jail. But on some level it is an accident as there is no premeditation or intent to harm.
Why? An eye for an eye would not leave the whole world blind. Just the criminals.I'm very much in the camp of "an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind".
