They need to punish him to the fullest extent of the law, life w/o parole would work nicely.

They need to teach him a lesson. He took a human life because he was being stupid. He needs to pay for his crime..

This incident occurred only three blocks from my home. I hope there are enough witnesses and evidence to support a trial and a conviction. It would be nice if Pumar took responsibility for his actions and pleaded guilty, although that would probably reduce his sentence to the minimum with the way things seem to go. It looks like felony gross vehicular manslaughter (PC 192c) carries a sentence of one to six years in prison.
