    I wonder ... does every state have statutes that cover charging perps with murder if anyone dies during the commission of their crimes, even if they weren't the ones who actually harmed the person?
    No! Some go so far as to have a "trigger" rule, which is a positive defense to get off the hook. There have been cases where the prosecution could not overcome "Reasonable Doubt" as to who fired the actual round, so both got a reduced charge.

    That's why I posted:

    I wish every State had that law on the books.
    IMHO -- Commit a felony and anyone dies as a direct results, it should be along side whatever highest level murder in that State.

    It doesn't need to be something like an armed robbery, IMHO.

    Lets say a guy is fleeing from a felony. That should become felony fleeing. Then lets say an LEO responding to the felony fleeing even from some distance away is involved in an accident and dies or kills someone. IMHO the guy fleeing from a felony knowingly/intentionally set that chain of events into motion -- a chain of events had a potential of killing someone.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Any good defense attorney can convince the jury, it was the 17th shot that stopped the threat ... and if you had shot only 16, you'ld be dead instead.

    HRRMMM I bet that clerk would make me clean the counter of teeth and brain after the .45acp decapitated the idiot criminal.
    The only danger there would be that the clerk might think you were in on the robbery and take a few shots at you.
