    Again, I don't see the correlation. If you can physically speak English, you should have to in those circumstances. If you can't, that's another story. I don't see the use of bringing people with disabilities into the discussion. That's a separate matter.

    We should restrict people who cannot communicate in English because it's an easily avoidable situation. If people with those disabilities could speak English, I'm sure they'd love to. It's a question of being sensible. Obviously, if you can't physically speak the language, it's not your fault and shouldn't be held against you. If you can, but you choose not to, then it's your fault and can beheld against you.

    It's the difference between self-defense murder and premeditated murder. One you can help, but you don't. The other, you can't help. That's why the first one is completely illegal, and the second is not necessarily.

    Actually, I mixed everything up. I meant the first one referring to "One you can help, but don't", being illegal. I didn't even think about which was first in the first sentence. Thanks for clarifying.

    Fine, then use "killing". The point is that killing someone in a premeditated fashion is illegal, while killing someone out of self-defense is legal, depending on the circumstances.

    It's all about proving premeditated or not.
