What's the world coming to?

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!

I think the maximum sentence over here is 17yrs....might be different now, but that's what it used to be!

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.
