The Poltergeist Reform Committee quickly approved the changes to the amendment. From now on only those killed by someone living were allowed to exact revenge upon the living perpetrator, and only after getting expressed permission from the Specter Hauntings Commission.

Collateral damage deaths due to paranormal activity were causing the spirit-on-spirit assault rate to soar exponentially. No one thought those deaths would result in the newly dead being angry enough to want to kill the ghost who killed them, but attitudes had changed. Random hauntings were no longer permitted.

Scaring people to death was disruptive to the afterlife.

    Fantastic idea, Michael. I couldn't help but giggle at the idea of the newly dead being disruptive. :)

    Awesome. Bureaucratic red tape even in death.
