Criminal Responsibility for Conduct of Another

  1. Bob  is a hard-working guy who lives in Smallville, USA. Bob is getting  ready for work one day and listening to the national news at the same  time. He hears a report from the director of the FBI that Osama Bin  Laden is now in the United States and is hiding out somewhere near  Smallville, USA. The FBI director advised the people of Smallville to be  on the lookout for Bin Laden, that he is armed and dangerous and is  planning a terrorist attack. The FBI director said they have  intelligence information that Bin Laden was spotted in a brown Pontiac 2  door vehicle and had vowed to blow up an innocent person’s house as a  show of his power in the USA. Bob looks out the window of his house as  this news report is still happening. Bob has been watching the news for  the last 24 hours because of the attack on the World Trade Centers in  New York, and Osama Bin Laden was reported to be responsible for those  attacks. Bob sees a brown 2 door Pontiac pull up in front of his  neighbor’s house. An Arab man with a long beard gets out of the car  carrying a large black package and begins walking up to his neighbor’s  door. Bob realizes this man is Osama Bin Laden and he fears he is going  to blow up his neighbor’s house. He grabs his gun and runs out the front  door. He yells at the man firing his gun at the same time. Bob kills  the man. His neighbor comes running out of the house as Bob is walking  up to the man. His neighbor asked Bob what he had done. Bob said, “I  just killed Osama Bin Laden! He was going to blow up your house!” Bob’s  neighbor then said, “That’s not Osama Bin Laden! That is the pizza  delivery man and that is the pizza I just ordered! Bob looked down and  could see the Pizza Hut logo on the man’s shirt and could see a corner  of the pizza box sticking out of the large black package. The man he  killed was not Osama Bin Laden.
  2. John is  not a hard-working guy. John also lives in Smallville. John has been in  trouble his entire life and has been arrested many times. John was  sitting at his house the same day the FBI warned the public that Osama  Bin Laden was in the area. John did not hear this warning because his  electricity had been shut off the week before. John called the electric  company (Superior Energy) and after they refused to turn his electricity  back on, he threatened to kill someone from Superior Energy. John was  angry and bitter at Superior Energy. John told his friends and family he  would get revenge against Superior Energy. John is sitting on his couch  with a gun in his hand plotting his revenge and trying to figure out  what he is going to do to Superior Energy. While John is sitting on the  couch, he notices a Superior Energy electric company truck pull up in  front the elementary school next to his house. The two men in the  Superior Energy truck get out and begin unloading some equipment. John  sees this as his opportunity to teach Superior Energy a lesson. He runs  out his door and shoots both men while screaming obscenities at them and  cursing Superior Energy. The neighbors and teachers at the school  witness this and call the police. When the police arrive, John gives up  and admits he killed the men. The police quickly realize that the two  men John killed were not Superior Energy workers. One of the men was  Osama Bin Laden and the other man was one of Bin Laden’s top men – also  wanted by the FBI. The police also found plastic explosives in the bags  the men were carrying and blueprints of the elementary school. Later the  police found the two Superior Energy workers that Osama had killed so  that he could steal the Superior Energy truck and uniforms from the dead  men.
