What is Reckless Indifference to Human Life?

In the context of a Petition for Resentencing under Penal Code § 1170.95 (Senate Bill 1437), one of the three exceptions for an aider and abettor to being resentenced under the new felony murder rule is if the aider and abettor acted as a “major participant with reckless indifference to human life.” The California Supreme Court, in its 2015 ruling in People v. Banks, set forth various factors for evaluating if someone was a major participant and the 2016 ruling in People v. Clark set out the factors to consider for whether one acted with reckless indifference to human life.
