167. Murder defined---Culpable homicide is murder in each of the following cases: (a) If the offender means to cause the death of the person killed: (b) If the offender means to cause to the person killed any bodily injury that is known to the offender to be likely to cause death, and is reckless whether death ensues or not: (c) If the offender means to cause death, or, being so reckless as aforesaid, means to cause such bodily injury as aforesaid to one person, and by accident or mistake kills another person, though he does not mean to hurt the person killed: (d) If the offender for any unlawful object does an act that he knows to be likely to cause death, and thereby kills any person, though he may have desired that his object should be effected without hurting any one. Cf. 1908, No. 32, s. 182
167 (d), to this lay-person, suggests that MURDER has been committed.
I know these types are not big on thinking and considering consequences. The thought of facing a murder charge will totally fail to get through to many of them- but it will get through to many others who are young and foolish, but not terminally stupid.
Just shrugging off the slap-on-the-hand treatment with "there is no point in ruining the perps life, as well"- just does not cut it.
This liberal crapola has been an epic failure.
Time for the pendulum to swing back to the harsh side of severe!
