    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.

    This is what I call “shit happens” sentencing. All of it coming from the Left who traded punishment for victimhood.

  • John Borstlap says:

    7 years is very cheap for a young human life. Such people should at least serve 40 years behind bars.
