A 13 yo boy has an hour to kill, dons a hockey mask and slowly scrapes a rake across the window of a retirement home. A resident opens the shades, and upon seeing the boy, has a heart attack and later dies. Should the boy be charged with his death?

Why was the boy being forced to kill within an hour? ;)

That's totally how I read the question at first, I was so confused...

I was going to write an hour to kill before ballet practice. Should I reword?

dawl, like, he has an hour of time to pass before he has something else to do. I don't think it's worth rewording, Bob, you've got smart followers!

That's true bean, but I didn't want to convolute the results by confusing language

I saw the word "hockey" and got really excited. And then I read the rest of the question.

Don't tell me you lost your excitement

Well, the question got a little depressing...

True, but I feel it's more than the act itself, understanding the threshold of right and wrong, crime and no crime. What we deem as a society in terms of limits. Really tough to dive into ethics without some sort of controversy.

Plus I'm afraid my limit on hockey knowledge is the mask looks freaky as hell on a 13 yo boy scraping a rake on your window :)

It's a good question, even if it involves someone dying.
You should watch some Olympic hockey :) Then you can expand your hockey knowledge!

Just between you and me, and apparently it is, since the question already closed, neighbor and I watch it a lot, but also drink a lot when we do, so every time he explains the game, I've forgotten by the end of the night
