Then in this case it seems you're being relatively consistent in the generalized view which even if I disagree with is at least following a general coherent logic process.I'm in favor of the 30 year old being on the hook in all cases.
but that has many problems. In forced rape cases, we often don't know who the 30 year old is, or he won't have the means to pay as he is incarcerated.
If a person beats me up, does the tax payer pay my medical bills? Am I criticized for suggesting tax payers should not be responsible for this? how is this any different?
