For anyone not understanding why the draconian Felony Murder Rule needs to be either abolished or amended needs to google RYAN HOLLE'S case. When you can be at home in bed asleep yet get LWOP for loaning your car to a roommate there is a serious problem! Every Country has abolished this 16th Century old law for a reason, except the USA! We are taught from childhood that we are not responsible for the actions of others, only for our own. Until someone gets murdered, then all of a sudden...

We are taught from childhood that we are not responsible for the actions of others, only for our own. Until someone gets murdered, then all of a sudden we are equally responsible. Makes no sense. This Petition will be presented to each State's Congress, that has not either abolished or amended the FMR.

In Texas it is called "the law of parties" and frequently the real perp get a lessor sentence than the guy along for a ride.
