You shall set out for yourselves towns, towns of asylum you shall have, and a murderer may flee there, one who strikes down a person in errance…The consequence of involuntary manslaughter is exile into a town of asylum and the punishment parallels the crime. In a case of involuntary manslaughter there was a disconnect between one’s intention and one’s action. One did not intend to kill but that’s what ended up happening. This is the essence of exile too – there is a disconnect between where the person is and where they feel they ought to be.
