Murder Should Be Illegal

Those who think that the attention that I have been giving to the State of Indiana has been excessive may take comfort in this knowledge: I am preparing something important about the laws of the State of Ohio.

Specifically, it concerns those aspects of Ohio law which relate to the subject of murder.  Ultimately, it will be up to the people of Ohio (and their representatives) to consider what I have written, to decide for themselves (individually, and then as a state) how much merit there is to it, and then to decide what, if anything, to do in response to it.  However, I believe they will receive it well.

I do not think that it is acceptable for certain prosecutions for murder to fail due to the structure or the wording of laws that -- as unbelievable as this surely would sound -- leave it an open question whether a given murder (though the fact itself may have been proven) was actually prohibited by law.

I am sure that the people of Ohio won't be willing to tolerate that, either.
