I'm taking law classes. I'm into the meat of my degree.
They frequently refer to a 'reasonable person' and they compare the crime/wrongful act with a 'reasonable person.'
But here's a question for you: Is a reasonable person a prude person?
I drive fast, but I still have control and I take weather conditions into my driving. But because I drive faster than the speed limit, does that mean I'm not a 'reasonable person.'
I just wonder if sometimes they consider a 'reasonable person' to be a slightly overly careful, prude person.
I suppose as long as I stay on the right side of the law, it doesn't necessarily matter.
