Some people make the stupidest comments on blogs. For example, someone said that a group of people breaking into a house was not trespassing, since they thought that burglary was more appropriate. The reason they gave is that burglary means to enter a house with intent to commit another crime. But the stupid thing is that they said that the other crime they intended to commit was trespass!
Well, you can’t say that it’s burglary just because they were trespassing. It’s prosecution for the same crime. Burglary in most jurisdictions means trespassing with intent to commit another crime that is a felony. So it’s really silly to take legal advice from some random post on the Internet!
What they should have said is that there was intent to commit another crime, such as vandalism. Silly!
