"Knife armed felon. You only become a felon when you have been convicted of the offence- not when you perpetrate it'
Sorry, but I disagree. You become a felon when you commit -- what a surprise -- a felony. You become a CONVICTED felon after you plead or are found guilty of that offense. This difference is more than semantics; if an individually brutally kills another person, HE A MURDERER notwithstanding the fact that he is never arrested, prosecuted, or convicted. I certainly understand that the law may not consider him as such, but in the eyes of God, he surely is.
