Ok, let me ask you something.
For my midterm project in Deviance and Violence I have to write 2000 words on any incident of schoolyard shooting in our history. I have chosen the Newark NJ shooting from 2007.
In my research of this class I read :
John Kip Cornwell, a Seton Hall Law School professor, said because there appears to be no physical evidence or eyewitness to show Godinez actively took part in the schoolyard shooting, “his mere presence isn’t enough to establish his liability as an accomplice."
Prosecutors “have to show he somehow facilitated the crime. He’s not guilty just because he didn’t affirmatively prevent someone else from shooting,: Cornwell said. “Those are major hurdles for the prosecution, because it bears a burden, a higher burden. They have their work cut out for them.”
