A hearing to decide if there is enough evidence??? Is this going to be another senseless death where no one is held accountable? This young man CHOSE to run the red light and killed someone. If he gets off without plenty of jail time, there is no such thing as justice.

Just like every other driving incident where an innocent bystander dies. The courts will slap him on the wrist and give him a couple years to sit in a cell and think about what he did.

Laws need to change, although vehicular manslaughter might be the correct charge. It needs to be a harsher sentence.
Even drug convictions (possession) carry a stiffer penalty than killing someone.
