To be fair, they don't answer the question.
they describe how one has been a detriment to society and risked others lives and should be charged with that.
the existing posts do not explain why he should be responsible for his co-conspirator's actions and his co-conspirator should bear no personal responsability for the actions he chose to partake in.
criminal negligence causing death.
I still fail to see, despite all the supposed parallels, how what they did doesn't fit the bill.
Isn't that kind of like charging someone for speeding in the Indianapolis 500. They both agreed upon the level of risk and thus nether skier failed any implied duty of care from the other skier.
In negligence cases you have to prove the negligence of party A caused the loss of party B.
In this case, even if party A had not been skiing, the party B would still have been killed as he too was skiing (and would have caused his own avalanche)
The dead was killed because of his own negligence.
Side note: Another defence against injury to another is that they willingly entered into risk. Ie, you can charge someone with assault for punching you, unless you agreed to fight them in a boxing ring. In this case, the dead chose to enter into risk. This is only really ever negated in cases where the willingess to enter risk was to save someone else (ie, you can still charge someone if you willingly jump in front of a driver to push a child out of the way), or you still breached the standard and duty of care you owed. ie, you agreed to box me, but I hit you with a wrench instead, in this case the deceased knew what was going on, and what happened was exactly what he wanted to happen (an avalanche) which he himself caused. The only difference was the outcome from his planned outcome (or maybe he was suicidal)
In 2001, two skiers were swept over the exact same cliff in a similar incident, LeClair said.
"It was almost an identical situation to what happened here, except in that case, fortunately nobody died," he said.
if you're driving drunk and kill everyone in your vehicle, you're still responsible for their deaths, even if they knew you were drunk when they got in with you.
... The example I saw was where person A hurt person B, and during the transition from point of damage to the ambulance person B was struck by lightening and killed. In that instance person A is not held responsible for the subsequent death.
Nevertheless this would be a fun case to see argued in court.
