Er, you don't appear to have any. You think you know the law. Look up Mens Rea and Actus Reus. Baldwin meets the criteria of the former, not the latter. You need both to get a conviction.. . . and this is why people like you shouldn't lecture folks with common sense.
Lawyers are easy targets. Only ignoramus's have no time for lawyers. Without lawyers there is anarchy. Are there shithead lawyers? Sure. A most arrogant? In my dealings, definitely. Then again, so are surgeons. Yeah, let's have a society without them. Using your 'common sense', you'd be the guy in the 1600s burning witches at the stake because you cow stopped producing milk.
