MythDragon: Charge him with being a douchebag or something, but this is stupid.

I thank God daily that being a douchebag isn't illegal.

jeblis: As a bystander you can't leave the scene of an accident, but you can stand there and twiddle your thumbs if you want.

Can I jerk off?

factoryconnection: jaylectricity: Lack of compassion? Or primal fear of authority?

There were victims lying in the street in front of him, and yet there was no action to help them instead of shielding the drunken bozos (strangers, at that) that did the crime.

I didn't know anyone outside of lawmakers and the courts used the word "flee" anymore. Run the fark away, maybe...But "FLEE, DUDE, FLEE!!!" just sounds stupid.

A dumb thing to say, but hardly seems to rise to the level of a crime.  With such a low threshold, we'd have a whole lot of Farkers in jail already.

BitwiseShift: Brilliant prosecutor.

Not only have you saved your own ass by not going after well-armed and retaliatory drug dealers, but you also managed to obscure the law for those unschooled in law.

Just like in Miracle on 34th Street, you should expect a little something extra in your government-funded pay envelope. I'll bet pink is your favorite color.

But have no fear, if ever you're the victim of an accident, you'll die in pain in your own blood and vomit because no one will approach the accident site, given your zeal to drive even bystanders away.

Anyone retarded enough to worry that they will be arrested because of what this guy did is probably too stupid to tend to my wounds without making things worse.

So if I "stumble" upon an underground fight club and I jokingly yell out "Finish him!", am I now an accessory to murder?

/I better start taking a different route home from the bars.
