    “Bad mens rea”? Mens rea mala? Is that even a thing? What would be “good mens rea”?

    • I think the point is that Dennis is referring to mens rea as a measurement of guilt, not as a measurement of intent. He’s thinking of mens rea such as Intent as being ‘bad’, and mens rea such as Accidental and Reckless as being ‘good’.
