The fact that they are actually having a stimulating intellectual debate… priceless. I love your thugs.
Thanks! I love those guys, too. Just don’t say that… you know… out loud. Not in front of them, anyway.
I love them too.
Nathan, If I may pose a question to you to pick your brain and also to leave a comment.
Bought the book and showed it to a couple of my Under Grad Prof’s they loved it – So I plan on ordering each of them a copy when I graduate.
Secondly we were posed a hypothetical in class today and I immediately thought of your book. In a conspiracy/accomplice liability – lets say someone gets kidnapped and then told at gun point they will be robbing a bank. During that armed robbery an innocent bystander gets shot (and dies). My question is since duress can never be used as a defense against murder – does the kidnapped person have a defense or is he up a creek?
I would expect that, while duress is not accepted as a defense for murder normally, it would be an accepted defense for conspiracy, so you wouldn’t be liable in the first place.
