The trial of Matthew Pumar ended on Sept. 12 — nearly one year and three months after the car Pumar was driving hit and killed William Ware near the intersection of California Street and Escuela Avenue. A jury convicted the 22-year-old Mountain View man of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.

SIX YEARS??? That is not even CLOSE to justice. This guy CHOSE to get into position where he TURNED HIS CAR INTO A 4,000 LB. UNGUIDED WEAPON THAT WAS TRAVELLING AT 60 MPH!!! He committed 2nd degree MURDER and should be serving about 10-15 years in Pelican Bay = MUCH closer to justice.
