Yes , but as you stated,only if done purposely and maliciously.<quoted text>
Actually it IS against civil law codes (as well as humane decency), to purposely and maliciously harm or abuse others like that.
I would only do it for the fun of it, therefore neither civil law or human decency need apply.
Correct me if I am wrong . If I am, then I'd simply pay nonbeliever or witchetty to do it.
they'll do anything for wine money.
