The term that comes to my mind most often these days is depraved indifference. Here is the legal definition: "To constitute depraved indifference, the defendant's conduct must be 'so wanton, so deficient in a moral sense of concern, so lacking in regard for the life or lives of others, and so blameworthy as to warrant the same criminal liability as that which the law imposes upon a person who intentionally causes a crime. Depraved indifference focuses on the risk created by the defendant’s conduct, not the injuries actually resulting."
The republican Trump administration is guilty of depraved indifference in every way imaginable. The virus is mutating...new types of symptoms are appearing...immunity is not guaranteed...and republicans want to open up the country and force people back to work. Americans should NOT have to choose between poverty or death. Yet that is unfettered capitalism in today's America.
I despair for my country. And for all of the lives lost and for all of the lives yet to be lost...I despair. God help us all.
