Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of...Words

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of...Words

There is no doubt in my mind that the two babies at the heart of this article were negligent homicide victims. But because of the arcane manner in which lawyers write laws, there were no fatalities in the auto accident that claimed their lives. The punishment will never, in this case, fit the crime and two lives, with all the promise and hope in the world, were needlessly snuffed-out.

The horror. If we cannot punish the person who committed an obvious crime, shouldn't we be able, at least, to excoriate and punish the one's who wrote the law that prevented the proper punishment of the perpetrator?
