The law is alive. It doesn’t live in books and words. It lives in how well we understand and apply the law to our lives. Life of the Law's community of scholars, journalists, producers, editors, writers and attorneys are having a conversation about the law in America. Through sound-rich narrative storytelling, investigative reporting, thoughtful analysis and research presented over multiple platforms, including bi-weekly podcasts, public radio airwaves, blog posts and live events, Life of the Law encourages you to join in the conversation about the law and the role it plays in our lives.
Very disappointing that you would minimize Arlene’s guilt here. She sent *thugs* to this elderly man’s house, and he died as a result. She did not just plan a burglary — she put an elderly man at grave risk, and he died. Shame on her for not taking responsibility or showing any remorse all these years later. And shame on you for minimizing and excusing her conduct. If you send thugs to someone’s house and put him at grave risk, you’re responsible for what happens.
