Mr_shermanWhen I said Linda indirectly caused the death look at what she did and would think. The charge of Manslaughter states that a death was caused either by omission or indirect actions of the perpetrator. No court would convict Linda of such a charge but given the circumstances charges could be done. The investigation of the death would show natural causes so the charge would probably not hold. It would not even be considered in this case but Linda feels she caused the death. She cannot help that feeling. It’s not like as in war or doing what I do. But I deal with officers who have had to kill and they feel the same way as Linda. A bad place to be for a good person. And funny you should bring up issuing a ticket. That did happen to me. I wrote a teenage a citation for excessive speed. Two days later he killed himself with his dad’s 357 magnum. He left a note saying the citation and getting into trouble made him feel useless and bad. He decided he was worthless so killed himself. My actions apparently pushed him over the edge. The violation was his choice and my action was mine. His family never never forgave me. His fathers last words was that I die a terrible horrible death for “causing” the death of his son. I gave thoughts to my actions. Had I warned him? Took no action? I like a soldier did my job. His family did attempt to take me to civil court for wrongful death charges. A hearing was held. I was not billed. But you see I was still charged.
