The Concurrence Requirement means that the criminal act must be accompanied by an equally criminal mind. Meaning you need both "actus reus" and "mens rea" for it to be a criminal act.

So if you have someone throw a brick through a window and the glass shatters and kills someone, they wont be charged for murder because it was not his intent on killing that person.
