They have to determine if a crime was committed?

Somebody was shot and killed while minding their own business.  In what way is that not a crime?  Negligent homicide at the very least.

Jesus man, gun safety is pretty farking simple.  Don't shoot what you don't want to kill and make godamn sure you know what's around what you're shooting at.

Weintraub said investigators have to determine if anything criminal occurred. They have to determine the mental state of the person responsible for the shooting, according to the DA.

The hunter was negligent.  That's a crime.

As a responsible gun owner myself I am completely aware of what my target is, what is behind my target and the trajectory of the round. 600 feet is not a long distance to shoot with a rifle. A hunter needs to know if he's taking a safe shot! That the asshole hasn't come forward shows that he's not a hunter so much as an idiot with a gun.

Hunting was allowed at park that day.

They don't have a suspect(s).

What I'm assuming they're doing is putting out a "hey, we know hunting was allowed this day, whoever did this just please come forward and tell us about how you thought he was a white tail (or whatever the season is there)."

If they come put and say "we're gonna hang whoever did this high when we find out."  The family and or friends of the "hunter" or even the hunter themselves aren't going to come forward.  By saying it that way it gives incentives for people who knew the hunter that day or the hunter themselves might come forward and say "john Smith was out hunting that day, he isn't a killer, it must have been a bad accident."

whidbey: Hunting is stupid, outdated and a danger to the populace.


Excessive numbers of deer within a metro area is a danger to the populace.  Alerting the folks to know about an upcoming cull (so they'll stay the fark away) and using skilled hunters to thin the herd is the smart thing to do.

We had a big brouhaha in Indianapolis a few years back about a cull at one of the larger parks in Indy.  Animal rights folks were against it, but there had been many instances of drivers hitting deer, and hitting a deer can total a car, not to mention a possible cascade of wrecks as folks try to avoid the first wrecked vehicle.

The deer that were killed were far underweight and malnourished.  The park itself showed signs of over-grazing and damage to the habitat.

I'd agree that hunting exotic animals is stupid, but the USA supposedly has more deer now than any time in its history.  Using firearms is a better option than leaving out poisoned bait, as other animals won't be affected (e.g., scavengers eating a poisoned deer carcass are also poisoned) or leg traps.  The culled deer can be given over to a butcher, and the venison given out to food banks.

It's not just deer.  My parents had a small farm on a peninsula formed by the Kentucky River, and people would dump dogs out there all the time.  The river kept them on the peninsula, and packs of dogs would begin to run down cattle.  At $1200-1500 per head, a farmer can't afford to lose even one cow to feral dogs.  Every few years, the neighbors on the peninsula would have to go on a dog hunt to get rid of them.  Capturing them and sending them to a shelter wasn't an option; once they go wild, they stay wild.  As with deer, traps and poison bait often kill other animals, so skilled hunters with firearms is the best option.

I'll give you the ricochet, but otherwise, the trajectory of the round was exactly where it was aimed, notwithstanding the perception of the shooter being otherwise (including the expectation of hitting a target closer to the shooter). When you discharge a weapon, you aren't just responsible for the result you wish for, you are responsible for the actual outcome. Whether or not the shooter is identified and convicted of some criminal offense, it is an absolute, inarguable fact that the shooter is completely responsible for the death of another person.

Pretty obvious the bullet to the neck is how he died.

So you mean you want to find out who is responsible for his death.  You are already approaching this with kid gloves and with more compassion that if it were a stray bullet in an urban setting.

How gross and obvious does sarcasm have to be for Fark to pick up on it anymore?
If I had suggested that the hunter should be able to sue the victim's estate for getting in the way of his shot would it have tipped you off?
