      The person who drops a match in a dry forest can be prosecuted whether they meant to start the fire or not. And you're liable when the brat drowns if you don't put a fence around your pool because of your freedumbs.

      Worth a shot. These f-cks are a menace.

          Boston is the 21st largest city in the US. The 5 cities immediately ahead of Boston are Charlotte NC, San Francisco CA, Indianapolis IN, Seattle WA and Denver CO. The five cities just behind Boston in overall population are El Paso TX, Nashville TN, Detroit MI, Oklahoma City OK and Portland OR. NONE of those urban areas have had the poor COVID-19 results that Boston has experienced - nor have the states they're located in. So no, it's not just about big cities ...

          My main disconnect is nothing of the sort.
          So when the data is in your favor, it's all good ... but when it tells another tale, it's "demonstrably lying".

          Yet the MSM doesn't say a word about China, or challenge the accuracy of their reporting. OK sure ...

          And there you go again with the "appropriately close a state down" thing. Again, the decisions made on how a state handles its business is nothing more than the consensus opinion of the elected (and sometimes unelected) persons charged with making those decisions. There's nothing "factual" about that, other than the decision itself is a matter of fact. It's why 50 states have made different decisions on how to handle their business. Sure, it may irk those folks who've gotten the worst results, but it does reflect on their judgment. And the data to date strongly indicates NY, NJ and MA got it wrong.

          Surprisingly, the data speaks far more favorably to Red states like FL and TX, and even Blue CA ...

          • Yikes. I'm not sure I'm in favor of legal consequences, however that statement is asinine.

            There's no direct intent when an intoxicated driver takes out a pedestrian, however there is criminal liability all the same.

              Here is an interesting and thorough explanation of Flaggy, Whalers, Chuck Murray, Jeb2020 and the rest. It is worth the time -- I recommend it to all of our regular political posters.

                That is probably the best analogy. They are drunk drivers. They didn't choose to kill the family in the other car, but they chose to get drunk (not wear PPE) and then get in a vehicle where that was a possibility (not social distance).

                  Except a drunk driver intentionally consumes alcohol, and then intentionally gets behind the wheel of a vehicle and drives. The outcome may not be intentional, but the wrongful conduct along the way certainly is.
                  That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    You can't even tell the difference between criminality and civil liability. What a fraud.

                          Correct. Maybe you can educate the folks on here going forwards then?

                            And the conservatard who intentionally doesn't wear a mask and then intentionally hangs out in super spreader situations is doing the same thing.

                            That's why it is exactly analogous.

                              If you're intoxicated, I don't know that you can form a legal "intent" to drive. Doesn't matter because you don't need to have that intent, just the factual condition of operating or driving a motor vehicle. But intoxication can get a murder charge reduced to manslaughter because the intoxication can negate the ability to form the intent to commit the crime.

                              The most absurd criminal case I've heard of being prosecuted is a statutory rape case where a guy was in a bar talking to a girl with a drink, thought she looked young and literally asked to see her id, and she showed him the fake that got her in the door and the booze from the bar. Turns out she was only 17. Court says it doesn't matter that you wouldn't have slept with her if you knew she was underage, that you attempted to discern her actual age, that she lied to you and said she was of age, that she was in a bar drinking booze, or that she showed you an ID showing she was of age that you had no reason to believe was fake. You slept with her, and she was in fact underage, so your conviction stands.

                              If that can happen, then I'm all for going after people who intentionally attend mass gatherings in violation of a law/proclamation/ordinance, thereby endangering public health by spreading a communicable disease. They're a helluva lot more culpable.
