So they set fire to their Tax payer funded home and kill six of their children... sorry but that's Murder in my book.  Poor children, RIP.

Murder v manslaughter

"Was the intent to kill?"

For the legal distinction at least.

The intention...........

was probably to get a bigger and better house and a few weeks in a plush hotel.


It just all went drastically wrong.

To those wasters, having kids is an alternative to work.

Across the pond

they have different ideas on death during other crimes.

A woman in a trailer park in Ky was being broken into. She phones 911 to ask about the legalities of self defence. She was effectively told that she had a right to defend herself and her property. The door gives in, first assailant goes into trailer, she shoots him point blank in the chest killing him instant;y. Second assailant does a bunk rapidly. BUT, under Ky law a death in the commission of a crime is "Felony murder" and applies to all involved in said crime. So the guy who ran can now be charged with murder if he's ever caught.

Murder

When I studied law, the difference between murder and manslaughter was predetermined intent.

They certainly intended to set fire to the house with the kids in it, so why haven't they been charged with murder?  (The fact that they hoped to get all of the kids out in time, just shows how ill conceived the plan was.)

And after their conviction, the tax payer continues to pay for their upkeep. :mad:
