  1. You can read this entire chapter in its original single-page scroll on the comic’s old Tumblr site here.

    Great primer. Should be required reading in all high school civics classes.

    How applicable are those five steps to all crimes? For example, is it possible to “recklessly” steal something?

    • Perhaps a situation where it’s ambiguous where you’re stealing something vs. picking up abandoned property? (E.g., a library is giving away a cart of its least-used books for free, and you don’t check to see if the book you’ve picked up off the ground says “Discard” on the spine.) Alternatively, a situation where you have permission to take something from a non-legitimate source (your host tells you to “help yourself” to anything in the kitchen, so you eat some of their roommate’s expensive imported chocolate).

    So, where does non-premeditated killing rank? It could be either intentional or knowing, no?

    • It would depend I guess, if they didn’t plan to kill a person, but then in the moment took an action they KNEW would kill them specifically TO kill them, then thats still intentional?
