is it illegal to shoot it or hit it with a hammer?
you're walking through a field on your way home, you find a corpse, looks fresh but definitely dead. you know a guy who has a licensed gun so you go and get him and bring the gun and shoot the gun into the corpse's face and then go home
I can't imagine there being a problem.
so instead of going home, after you've emptied the clip you can ring the police, tell them you found a corpse and also tell them you shot it after it was dead
They'll be able to tell that the gunshots were post-mortem, so you'll be 100% fine.
to fuck it
until some rotten cunt splits on you
If the police realised you'd messed with a corpse before calling them, I'm sure at the very least they'd hit you with that.
find corpse, shoot corpse, call police, tell them you found it and THEN you shot it and then you called them. even film it all as proof. like as soon as you find it, start filming, then shoot it. that's ok?
tell them you're going to shoot it as well? tell them 'i haven't yet, but i intend to shoot it'
that you think it's getting up so you better shoot it.
and when I got out he was standing there and it turned out he found a dead body when he was practicing his canoeing in the early morning and its ILLEGAL to not report a dead body and he had to wait with it until the police turned up. So I'd say it would be illegal to shoot a body or hit it with a hammer.
doesnt mean he *should*
nobody gets hurt clubbing a corpse with an oar
55. Riot, Disorderly Conduct and Related Offenses
5510. Abuse of corpse.
Except as authorized by law, a person who treats a corpse in a way that he knows would outrage ordinary family sensibilities commits a misdemeanor of the second degree.
that last bit is a bit vague though. but i'll just leave it alone.
gay as an insult?
In the UK there is no specific offence of desecration of a corpse as such, but you may be prosecuted for common law offences of preventing the lawful and decent disposal of a corpse, unlawful interference with a corpse, or outraging public decency.
it would be deemed you'd messed with the evidence, or whatever the technical term is, if you shot a corpse's face off. It'd take about 60% of a CSI episode to establish the gunshot wound to the face happened after death, and that's a lot of police time to be a-wasting.
the bastards won't even let you have sex with it either
like a cat might do, with a bird, with its paw.
pulls the body into the kitchen.
pokes it with a fork.
"hahaha he's all rubbery!"
and then they come and question you and you dance the entire time you are talking to them. like disco dancing, next to the corpse that you shot after it died
As it would give the police grounds to believe you are a wrong'un and you may be treated as a suspect.
they're asking you about the fork you put in the corpse's arm, and you keep deliberately falling over.
...you were corpsing?
as it's just a lifeless inanimate object, like an umbrella or a suitcase. Is it owned by next of kin, the state, whoever found it, the landowner, WHO?
also, can i then ask that person permission
Historically, it has been held that the removal of a body without lawful authority is a common law misdemeanour, however the no-property rule means that it can not be construed as theft.
You kept finding corpses, like one or more every day, sometimes maybe a many as five, in different locations around town? You would always phone the police and do things all proper like and cooperate fully. You would phone the police and say "yes me, it's happended again" and you could achieve national celebrity as "the corpse finder" and there would be gameshows you would host based around finding corpses. Or would you be arrested? Even then you could continue finding corpse in jail, no matter how hard they try and stop it you would always find a corspe a day.
It didn't look like it needed a hammer or a pistol to be honest. I guess it wouldn't have been illegal?
across the road is a hospital, gonna see if I can get to find a corpse, I know some doctors who might let me find one
I could probably go and look at them too (this should be its own thread)
