I agree he should of got more .



But we all know , life doesn\'t mean \'life\' nowadays . Your average \'life\' sentence is 12 years , but you retain a probation order after that - so speaking literally you could be 90 years old and still visiting your probation officer .



I think had a , dare I say it , \'Normal\' person have commited the offence , I think they would have probably got the same - disagreeing with the user above . I don\'t know why , but the court\'s seem to look on it completely differently killing someone with a car / by hand . What I want to know is , what difference would it have made if he\'d say , shot them ? Maybe it could be deemed more callious , but it\'s an object just like a car ... right ?

I agree completely. The only difference between this and murder is that he\'s done it with a car. He should have got life - those boys have.

Luke McCormick     (Posted on: 2008-10-06 21:23:55)

I was really shocked to see that Luke McCormick only got 7 years (and it seems like he\'ll probably be out in 3 and a half years). According to this site the maximum sentence for causing death by dangerous driving is 14 years. He was driving erratically, too fast and while he was drunk and he killed two kids...what do you have to do to get the maximum on that basis?! I think that killing someone with a vehicle should be manslaughter and subject to a greater maximum tariff. Do others agree?
