What is My Karmic Fate For Murder?

Someone anonymously presented this question to the spiritual guru from India. I have committed murder and I want to know my fate not from some general or typical answer that can be found on line or in an average book on the subject. I want to know the real answer.

The master says ” When apprehended for murder under human law, the murderer may be executed but if the murderers guilt goes undetected he is free. However under the all-seeing judiciary of cosmic law, the heavenly ordinance of karmic causation goes into effect and there is no escape possible. Those who have not been caught for breaking the laws should not consider themselves free or innocent. From the very inception when the murder was committed the evil crime couches itself in the consciousness of the perpetrator as a karmic-effect impression that foretells inescapable justice. Most important and mostly misunderstood the killer will not necessarily be murdered by another individual; the corollary law of karma does not mean that the tribunal of cosmic law will sentence according to the verdict rule of “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth or the policy of tit for tat.” Instead, for failing to act according to the law there is a subconsciously present inner terror of the consequences which comes through the murderer’s conscience: “Thou shall not kill, do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”

Now the murderer is turned inward and haunted with the mental terror of the loss of life and physical pain forced upon his victim. If he does not try to satisfy his conscience by turning himself in to the law, then, if he does not give himself up and goes scott-free in his current life, he will in his next incarnation take within his subconscious mind a karmic ticking bomb with the tendency of murdering, along with the subconscious worry of being murdered himself. Under the circumstances of violent emotion or the power of anger, that tendency bomb may detonate and blow up into a recurring impulsive homicidal desire whereas he in fact, would be slain. The conditions of his demise would not be the judgment from the tribunal of cosmic law that govern every single human action, but from his last criminal act and rather, he himself would have attracted his own death from his own wrong actions brought upon from habit seed tendencies accumulated from the past.

Anyone who’s bad habits are deeply-seated feels caught and helpless in the diabolical tentacles of their doomed bad habits and are fearing the performance of those deadly actions from reaping the sorrowful results regardless of their longing to reform. These are words of warning for those who become complacent and assume themselves as rightfully virtuous and secure. This article solely deals with man’s pre-astral life on earth.

Who Will Laugh Last? The Immoral, Murderers, Corrupt Politicians, Occultists, The Atheist, Or Jesus?

Hey America:

I have an interesting bit of what some might call trivia, not that the wise will consider this issue as trivial. What group of individuals was hell (the Lake of Fire) originally designed for?1 I perceive this as a very important question since there has only been two people out of all who have lived upon the earth who have never died, (Elijah and Enoch)2 and of course, after death is the judgment,3 and after judgment every soul of man will, according to the Scriptures, find his eternal home in either heaven or hell. 4

The original occupants were to be the devil and his angles. But, you see, hell is undergoing a building program to allow for an increased population. Who else will join the devil and his angels? The fearful: those without courage to stand for truth and justice. The unbelieving: those who can set faith in an amoebas coming forth from some supposed “prehistoric” swamp turning bit by bit over the millions of years into a person, but do not exercise faith toward the one true God who is the creator of all things. It will be those who believe in the divinity of man, and refuse to acknowledge the obvious reality that man in his own right is utterly deprived and in need of the Savior sent down from heaven. It will be the vile: the sort that produce many of our modern movies and television programing, who cannot seem to appreciate purity. It will be the murderous: those that murder on the street and in the hospitals and abortion clinics, and every judge and person in this land that excuses that murder. It will be the sexually immoral: That will hit a few of us won’t it? All those that will not practice their sexuality according to God’s laws. For remember, it was He who created sexuality, and He did it for certain purpose, which purpose can only be brought forth when His laws are obeyed. It will also be all that practice witchcraft, and every sort of occultism. It will be all Idolaters: that’s everyone who will not allow the faith of Jesus Christ to have absolute preeminence in their life. It will also be all liars: Watch out politicians and you preachers that continually distort the truth to gain men’s approval, and with their approval their vote, and with their vote power, finance and a name. 5

Maybe if God’s kingdom was a democracy we could vote Him and His hell out, and the perverted wisdom and practice of men in. However, that is not the way it is. So I would say we had better do some repenting because He is keeping record. 6 You might that He, (God) is like what Santa Claus is said to be. “He’s making a list, checking it twice”, but the Lord calls His list The Book Of Life. 7 Jesus Christ is coming again! 8 There is no doubt about it. He’ll show up, in person, and exactly right on time! These truths are forthrightly revealed in the Scripture. It is no wonder to those who serve the Lord and love His word that our nation’s forefathers served the God of heaven, and sought to bring forth this nation as a nation under God.9 It is no wonder to them that our nation’s fathers sought to establish America on God’s laws and the faith of Jesus Christ. For it was the only reasonable things for them to do.

It is written in Psalms chapter two: Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, (our president, much of the congress, not to speak of exceeding many preachers) against the Lord, and against His anointed, (Jesus the Christ, and all who obey His laws) saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (the liberals would throw off all civil law, and religious doctrine that shows any subjection to the law of God) He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. (remember liberals, all who practice ungodliness, the last laugh belongs to God and to those faithful to Him.) Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion. (who is the prince of the kings of this world? I tell you that it is none other than Jesus Christ, and that He will in His own good time grind every man to powder that resists His will, but those that follow Him He will grant glory and position)

Further, in the Psalms it is written: I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou are my Son: this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for they possession. (this means even you America, and this Watchman says that either you go His way willingly, or He will crush and destroy you, and none of our modern bonehead preachers or politician who do not teach and practice His laws will save you in that day) (bonehead is defined by this preacher as anyone to stupid or foolish of heart to not realize that only God’s law and the faith of Jesus Christ will in the end prosper)10 Thou shalt break them with a rod or iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. (but America, if you are willing to admit your sin and folly, put away your corrupt religious and political leaders, and the many vices of your land, and turn to Jesus, then the Almighty will grant you His favor, but if your will not, He will surely bring you low) Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.”

Remember America, every knee will bow in either heart felt reverence or forced subjection. Blessed are all those that take refuge in Him, those who give no place to modern liberalism in its many forms, but who live in the fear of the Lord.

A Watchman,
Gregory A. DeHart

Avoid Conclusory Statements in Law School Essay Exam Answers

Law school essay examination answers that do not supply the explanatory information detailing step-by-step how each issue can be resolved are said to be “conclusory.” That is, they recite conclusions without stating supportive analysis. Here’s an example of a conclusory statement taken from an exam answer: “Because Adam’s intent manifested the malice required for murder, he will be convicted.” The problem here is that although the statement may be true, the writer has not told the reader (professor) precisely which of Adam’s acts show he had the malice required to prove murder, what degree or variety of intent the law considers sufficient to prove malice, nor what type or variety of malice is required to obtain a murder conviction.

Here’s a better way to handle the Adam/intent issue.

The intent required to obtain a conviction for murder is malice. Malice can be proven by demonstrating that the defendant had the intent to kill. If a defendant uses a deadly weapon in a manner calculated to cause death, he manifests the intent to kill. Here, Adam’s use of a loaded gun to shoot Ben in the forehead at close range proves malice under this “deadly weapon” doctrine.

A display of the thought process leading to every conclusion is essential in a law school essay examination answer. When you enter the professional practice, judges, lawyers, and clients will be asking, “How did you reach that conclusion?” Throughout law school, your professors will expect you to respond to that latent question in every class session and on every examination. The ability to conclude is not what “thinking like a lawyer” is about-rather, you are developing the ability to persuade another that the conclusion you have reached is supportable by application of rules of law to a set of facts.

To score the most points on each issue, the essay ought to specify the issue, indicate which rule (or set of rules) a lawyer would employ to resolve the issue, articulate an analysis of how the facts of this hypothetical case are affected by application of the rule, and reason to a solid conclusion.

Lawyerly analysis, in its most fundamental sense, boils down to an interweaving of the facts presented in the hypothetical, with the law you have identified. Try to weave each fact into the analysis as it is brought up, rather than repeating or summarizing a series of facts and then commenting upon them. The essence of the analysis section of an answer is this: an interweaving of the facts (presented in the question) with the law (the rules, definitions and guiding legal principles used to resolve the legal problem identified by the issue). This interweaving is best accomplished by actually using “law words” and fact words in the same sentence(s) or paragraph.

Here’s an example of interweaving the law and facts in a short paragraph:

“When Jack left to hunt, he manifested his clear intent to breach his obligation to construct the room addition. The ‘half-completed’ status of the job, together with the timing (the completion date now moves from the critical date of March 10 to May 10) and the extra work would support an argument that the extent of performance was closer to minimal than complete. However, Jack would argue that his own costs of $50,000 demonstrate significant performance, supporting his position that the breach was only minor.”

The “fact words” above are obvious (including that Jack went hunting, the job was half-completed, the date change, and so on). The “law words” include: manifested his clear intent, breach his obligation, extent of performance, significant performance, minor breach. It is this interweaving of law and fact that one uses to show how the facts prove the elements necessary to prove (or not) the position for which you are arguing about the issue you’re considering.

Avoid writing conclusory answers or even conclusory sentences. They earn you no points on law school essay exams!

By the Numbers – Does Capital Punishment Deter Murderers?

More than half the countries in the world have the death penalty. Since most countries have tracked homicide rates and solve rates for decades (right from the time of the roaring 30s in most cases), correlating the “death penalty” deterrent to success in curbing capital crimes should be straight forward. Putting aside “wrongfully executed” arguments (in the U.S. 23 people were wrongfully convicted between 1900 and 1995 according to Amnesty International), this investigation looks only at the deterrent value.

Best and Worst Nations For Murder

The U.S. was not among the top ten for “safest countries for murder” according to statistics compiled from Interpol. The best jurisdictions for safety were Slovenia, Austria, Sweden, Canada, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Norway, Ireland, Finland and Singapore-some with capital punishment, most without. The worst jurisdictions mostly did have the death penalty, including: Columbia, El Salvador, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Albania, Venezuela, Russia, Ecuador, Mexico and Panama.

By contrast, Canada had a rate of homicide of 2 per 100,000, and the United States (as of 2005, according to Census data), was 5.5 per 100,000.

Canada Versus the U.S. on Capital Punishment

Canada might be the classic example of a western nation without a death penalty, and some states of the U.S. can serve as the contrast statistic for a quick analysis.

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down capital punishment laws in the U.S. in 1972. Interestingly, criminal homicide rates soared between 1967 and 1977, a time during which there were no executions. In the 1990s, murder rates declined after some states began to reinstate executions.

On the other hand, no province in Canada has the death penalty. Since capital punishment was abolished, the murder rate in the “goody goody” northerner has dropped from 3 to 2 per 100,000, far below the U.S. 2005 rate of 5.5.

In Canada, no executions tends to mean lower homicides. However, in the U.S., the Bureau of Criminal Justice does show a decline in murders with increases in executions. The trend began to reverse in the year 2000, with executions and homicides both down.

Going Abroad With Numbers of Executions

Three countries-China, Iran and Nigeria-lead with the highest executions in the world, accounting for 87% of all reported executions as of 1994. While China has the highest execution rate, it also has the highest conviction rate-almost certainly too high to be reliable-at 99.97% Conviction Rates on the Decline. China and Russia have almost incredible conviction rates, with 99% of cases heard in Russia court resulting in conviction, and 99.97% in China. In the U.S. and Canada, however, the conviction and arrest rates are dropping.

In the United States, overall arrest rates against crimes reported scores approximately 50% average, according to data compiled between 1991 and 2001 by the Bureau of Statistics. The conviction rate for murder is 60% as of 1998 in the U.S.. With murder slightly on the rise, but arrests hovering around 50% and convictions around 60%, numbers of 5.5 murders per 100,000 are don’t seem likely to improve soon. More than 7000 murders go without arrests each year, adding to the stack of cold cases (rounded statistics from Bureau of Statistics review).

In the U.S. Murders on the Increase

With murders on the increase, the rate of unsolved criminal homicides is also on the increase as well at an average of 50%. The latest well-organized statistics, compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice, under The Uniform Crime Reporting Program, show murders on the increase, (although homicides are slightly on the decrease). Murder is defined as “willful non-negligent killing of one human being by another.”

Murders Up 2000 to 2006

With 14,990 murders in 2006, versus 13,230 in 2000, criminal homicides are up, with gangland killings growing the fastest-although still a small relative number at 118 killings in 2006 versus 65 in 2000)-and felony murders still topping the list at 2436 in 2006 versus 2229 in 2000. Contrary to sensational headlines, “romantic” triangle” murders are declining, latest at 103 in 2006, down from 122 in 2000. Narcotics-related murders are up, now at 796 in 2006, up from 580 in 2000.

Murders The Same Per Capita

Probably the coldest but most effective way of reporting on the homicide trends are using the Bureau of Justice Statistics relative numbers, which takes into account a growing population. the rate of murders per 100,000 citizens was 5.5 in 2005. It was 5.5 in 2000 as well. In 2001 it climbed slightly to 5.6, then again to 5.7 in 2003, but stabilized statistically in 2005, the last year reported publicly. On a longer time horizon, prior to 2000, the homicide rate per 100,000 was much higher at 10.2 in 1980, declining gradually to 5.7 in 1999. Hard work of law enforcers and courts must take most of the credit.

575 Law Enforcers Killed

Over-worked law enforcement resources, and courts up against higher standards of evidence, may be part of the reason. This is especially evident in a climate where officers face the threat of homicide themselves. Between 1996 and 2005, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, 575 officers were killed, with 26% killed in “arrest situations”, 18% in “ambush situations”, 18% in “traffic pursuits and stops” and 17% during “disturbance calls.” Most were killed with firearms in the line of duty.

Growing Number of Law Enforcement Officers Per Capita

The increasing murder rate and lower conviction rate is despite a growing number of law enforcement officers per capita. Each law enforcement officer covered 449 citizens, extrapolating from US Census Data (in 2006: 495,270 officers for 22.3 million), down from one officer per 481 in 1990.

Murder Mystery Books That I Have Read and Loved

Since I was a young girl I have been interested in reading murder mystery books. I like to see if I can figure out the plot and find out who the culprit is while reading the story. Sometimes I figure it out and sometimes I don’t but I always enjoy the journey. Some authors are very good at giving clues that could send you in the wrong direction, and that makes the ending a real surprise.

I have read many different authors and have read multiple books of some of these authors and maybe only one of some of the others. I need to be caught up immediately in the story and some authors are very good at doing that for their readers.

My curiosity in the murder mystery book stories has really extended to other parts of my life as well. TV programs that feature law enforcement stories or legal cases seem to be my choice when scanning the TV guide. As an adult when I was first married and raising my children I am sure I watched every episode there was of “Murder She Wrote” as well as all of the “Matlock” wins that took place in the courtroom. I am now much older and still like to watch Matlock at work in the courtroom, if I get the chance. My TV interests these days have turned to Law and Order and CSI programs.

What makes a writer want to write murder mystery books? Maybe the same interest that we have wanting to read about murder and mystery. It makes ones imagination work and takes us out of the real world for awhile. We can lose ourselves for a time in a story well written and just sit and relax. How do they come up with the ideas? How much research do they have to do? Just think of all the hours of work that go into writing a book that I can enjoy and read in a couple of days. Wonderful people, those authors, who can put their thoughts down on paper, form them into a story and entertain thousands of readers around the world.

Everyone has their favorite author or authors and of course I am no different. I tend to read books written by 3 or 4 authors but I am always willing to try new ones that other readers suggest. I do prefer to read books that are not filled with profanity.
