if you aim a pot shot at A and hit B instead, although the consequence is unintended, nevertheless you're still guilty of an offence. This is the principle of transferred malice so I trust we'll see a few prosecutions of those responsible for these needless deaths <--- of US soldiers in Baghdad.<br><br>km<br><br>

I don't recall quite the same situation being discussed in the previous thread but yes, there has to be a criminal intent in the first place for it to be transferred from the intended to the actual victim.<br><br>km<br><br>
regardless who's fault, ... man that's sad.... <br><br>point is they should have never been there in the first place....<br><br>we shouldn't be there... <br><br>thank "the decider" !<br><br>David (OFI)
[color:blue]we shouldn't be there... thank "the decider" !</font color=blue><br><br>Yup, looks like a case of first degree murder because there was a clear intent to kill the Iraqis.
