Zing!! I got you.

Although you will still see it listed in a just few statutes, willfully is no longer a culpable mental state; Intentionally, Knowingly, Recklessly, and Criminally Negligent still remain.

Willfully was in the old Penal Law which was overhauled in 1967, but somehow when it was changed that word still remained in 1 or 2 offenses. Any charge based on that today should be defective.

Now buy me a Dr. Pepper.

Look at Prohibited Use of a Weapon, 265.35, 2 This is where you will se willfully. I also saw in on a tort action.

Some of those P.U.W. sections are almost scary.

Another question,(info giver) How about the cliche that ignorance is no excuse of the law, True/ false?

Defenses and affirm defenses when interposed will get someone off the hook. Aren't the Bell cops trying Justification?

It seems like a mix of justification and pure reasonable doubt...hence all the conflicting testimony from the DA...(again, I know many criminal lawyers who would PAY for the DA to put such a case in front of their judges/juries).

Still, through the testimony, criminality is pretty evident.

Micheal, I went to a school where there were only 4 blacks. So I know about white boys, and you are one sorry excuse for a cowardly W.B.

My brothers and I were the only whites on our school bus, so what?
Almost daily fights on the bus, but amazingly, I am not a bigoted moron like you, KKKBM, the fake-rabbi, RacHELL, and the rest of the wrong islanders/upstaters/wannabe-co ps and security boobs.

Yup, one big ol' coward here. Walking from Jamaica Ave to East New York while dating wifey....yet I lived to tell the tale...WOW. Dope.

Sure, a few morons would say "You're in the wrong part of the city, Wonder Bread", but never got attacked.....wonder why?

Denise, you said you bought four houses. Then you shopuld appreciate the work lawyers and their paralegals due, titles, searches, liens, transfer of deeds, etc. Don't you think Mike has contributed to society almost as much as your duties watching inmates?

You mentioned you are an Army veteran. I am too. What was your MOS?

Sugar, you have repeated your negative opinions enough. Time to move on with this old matreial. Let's try to stay focused without calling names.

I don't agree with Mike that often, but he was tolerant with me when I was wrong.

OK, pretty lady?

Run, some folks perfer contention, others courtesy. I am an admitted instigator with authoritative biases. Fact is, individuality plays more of a role in all criminal matters, be it a black or cop defendant. But that takes too much energy to comprehend, so some folks prefer to use blanket statements like all cops are saints, and all dark skinned people criminals.

Insults are funny sometimes, but to constantly do so only because of the unpopularity of certain opinions, is inane in my view.
Nice move

You sound unfamilar with Ms Rice's tactics. She sneaks in the back door what's not permitted through the front. No other DA in the 62 counties of NY has used patients blood for testing without the offender first being arrested. This will take years to work through the appelate courts, but insiders recognize it violates Dr/ patient privilege. This is the difference between zealous and over-zealous prosecution.
The concept regarding LE personnel even seems to hold true in civil courts. Judges sure like to zing officers.
You are wrong. Suffolk PD used "medical" blood to convict one of their own more than 10 years ago. Just because the other 61 DA's in the state aren't using this tool doesn't make it illegal. It's a concept called thinking outside the box something overpaid manual laborers who pour water on a flame don't understand.
