I saw on the news this morning that a man was jailed for just twelve weeks
for knocking down and killing a three year old girl and driving off. The
driver was driving carelessly, in a stollen vehicle, and had no driving
license! I was shocked at the sentence given to him. What jury or judge in
their right mind overlooks the fact that this was bassically manslaughter?
Infact, the driver only got convicted of handling stolen goods, driving
without a license or insurance, and careless driving.....there was no
mention of killing anyone!
I think the criminal justice system in the UK atleast, needs looking at!
25 yrs to life sounds about right. really
I'm with Nighthawk, AT LEAST 25 years:banghead:
WTF :banghead: , Cliffy are you sure it wasn't a minor that was driving?
Nope...in his mid twenties atleast!
wow that is just sad and so horrible he should get at leats 25:ohcrap:
I think the maximum sentence over here is 17yrs....might be different now, but that's what it used to be!
That's weak...I know in France it was 10 years for murder...
Man thats just f*cked. :banghead:
Yup, I personally believe that life should mean life myself!
You think thats bad, we've got street racers who kill people over here getting "conditional sentences" which is a load of crap. Basically house arrest kind of thing, no jailtime. A lot of people are getting really pissed off about it.
That's Europe for ya.
