If a violent criminal is carrying a knife when a man is stabbed to death, is manslaughter a fair judgement?

Mob of thugs attacked and killed a doorman, is manslaughter down playing his death if the criminals came armed with knives?

    nope -

    Cos as far as I am concerned the law on murder is just f//kin stupid

    For it to be murder the murderer must have the intent to kill them

    according to the law (I believe) if you go out and just kill ANYBODY cos they got in your way no matter who it is, then it aint murder

    The law sucks on this point: carrying a knife, ie preparation for a crime by itself does not constitute an "attempted crime" the burden of proof is to show intent to murder and clearly that was not made.

    That's what happens when you plead guilty and save the country money by foregoing a trial by jury.

    That's British in a nutshell.

    No it's murder. They are going equipped with intent to prevent law enforcers from doing their job.
