Iím not a lawyer. I just poke around the internet.

The standard for gross negligence is having absolutely no concern at all for the victims. If a defendant can show there was at least a little concern, then it is not gross negligence.

I think President Chucklehead meets the standard. I donít think he has ever cared about the people who, from Trumpís perspective, can be labeled the nameless unwashed masses.
