bulmann's law

Bunnell's Law is a legal principle that says if a person commits a crime and then runs away, that is considered as an admission of guilt. The idea is that if someone is innocent, they wouldn't feel the need to run away; but if they're guilty, they would likely run away, because they know they did something wrong. So, even if someone is not caught in the act, if they run away, the law says it's assumed they were guilty.
