The Spanish journalist Julio de la Guardia has received a seven-year sentence in a Jerusalem court for the hit-and-run killing of a promising ultra-Orthodox pianist and composer, Haim Tukachinsky.
Haim was 30 and on the threshold of discovery.

Only 7 years? What softies the Israelis have become. With remission this little weasel will be out in four.
The charges were manslaughter and abandoning the scene of a crime, also driving while under the influence, running a red light and speeding. To compare with the US I looked it up and see in the US the base sentence for involuntary manslaughter under federal sentencing guidelines is a 10 to 16 month prison sentence.
Federal guidelines aren’t used for this. Sentences vary by state, some are up to 10 years.
Ten years is implausible for a case like this, even in the place “some states”.
This is what I call “shit happens” sentencing. All of it coming from the Left who traded punishment for victimhood.
7 years is very cheap for a young human life. Such people should at least serve 40 years behind bars.
40 years? Why not life then or just kill them.
