Felony vs Misdemeanor

In the New Hanoner County case, the individual charged (and convicted) was involved in a felony, therefore, the felony murder rule applies which implies that when an offender kills accidently or without specific intent in comimission of a felony, the offender can be charged with murder. In the Brunswick County case, the Deputy Sheriff (nor anyone else) was involved in a felony, the death was unintentional, but the Deputy's action (pulling into the path of approaching traffic) was a misdemeanor (or as you spelled it - misdeamnor). A law enforcement officer's career is over and he will have to live with this for the rest of his life and, more importantly, a man lost his life. It is disgusting that, in your ignorance, you would attempt to make this a, racial, issue.
