not that cut n' dried, y'all. no transferred intent for voluntary manslaughter, for instance. like say one a you non-drivin' mothafuckas runs up on the sidewalk while yackin on yer goddamn cellphone and rolls over, let's say, mike tyson's momma. an innocent citizen observes the incident and makes the bad mistake of trying to intervene whilst this enraged no-neck havin' ear-savorin' beast slowly approaches your smashed automobile, in drooling full-metal jacket mode, to snatch the life outcha ass. the intervening dumbass runs up on mike t, knowing full well he's about ta pull yer chitlins outcha dirty brown doughnut, to try to calm him down, to prevent the bloodshed. 38 seconds later, he's a stain on the sidewalk, and mike t goes down for the full-on murder rap, no voluntary manslaughter plea available cause there ain't no transferred intent for such *&^%.
