Criminally negligent manslaughter
In jurisdictions such as Pennsylvania, if a person is so reckless as to "manifest extreme indifference to human life", the defendant may be guilty of aggravated assault as well as of involuntary manslaughter.
In many jurisdictions such as California, malice may be found if gross negligence amounts to willful or depraved indifference to human life. In such a case, the wrongdoer may be guilty of second degree murder.
"Willful and depraved indifference to human life." Ok. Now let's watch this:
Let's not even get into the fact that if Hamas would just stop shooting the goddamn rockets, there wouldn't be any problems.
The ambassador is basically saying that the press is defending Hamas and condemning Israel because Israel is killing civilians. The reason why is because Hamas puts their rockets and rocket launchers not in military areas but in hospitals, schools, and residential areas. Israel targets the rockets and a school gets taken out. Hamas puts out pictures and video of the dead bodies of children which the liberal press eagerly shows to the world. This encourages Hamas to continue to put more rockets in these areas. Which ends up with more civilian deaths.
Anyone with half a brain would know this. The press is being willfully ignorant and causing civilian deaths. If that isn't "willful and depraved indifference to human life," I don't know what is.
I expect Matt Yglesias to be frog marched to jail by the end of the day.
