There was a high school kid 5 years ahead of me in school who ran into an unmarked length of rebar. It went through the middle of his forehead and out the back of his skull and 55 years later he is still alive. The human body is weird. A few years after that a small child emulating the 3 stooges on television hit his father in the temple with a toy hammer made out of hard rubber and killed him instantly. You never know what is going to punch your ticket.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
