    So we should prosecute people the same whether they mistakenly hit someone with their car or whether they purposefully assassinate someone?

    Ok then. Any other stupid ideas you want to push for while your at it?

    So you equate manslaughter with murder? Coming from someone who studies law, I could see it. Hell, I believe in anything after the "Twinkie" defense.

    Obviously, Congress is very concerned about the hateful statements of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan. I hope they do some time!
