    I gave a common law definition of felony murder without looking up the CA Statute, which lists which crimes are Murder 1 and the remainder being Murder 2.

    As you correctly note, mayhem is one of the enumerated crimes, in theory it's a tossup, but given how badly DA's overcharge cases today, I think if the defendant were not a cop, they'd be filing Murder 1.

    Give me a couple of days, I'm game to analyze it. I still feel like Ramos was being done a favor here, but that's what DAs do, protect their cops.
