Siamese twin who commits a crime?
If 1 Siamese twin commits say a murder and the other tried to stop him but failed and called the police how would justice be served? If the twins could not be separated without death.
Your answer can be found in an old black and white 1951 movie called "Chained for Life". It starred real life Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton.
Daisy was charged with killing Violet's lover. She shot him with his own gun.
The prosecution demanded the death penalty for Daisy; but if the sentence were carried out, it would mean the death of the innocent sister as well.
How did it turn out? See if you can find the movie to get the solution.
Justice couldn't be served. Because justice for one would create a violation of rights by our Constitution for the other.
