  1. Makes you wonder exactly what the police need to charge him-if his car, or the one he stole being embedded in the building isn’t enough.

  2. The law on Dangerous, or Careless Driving is an ass, as someone nearly said! The pathetic sentences given out after someone has killed or injured someone often for life are an insult to the victims! In this case people have sustained serious injuries, yet (a person) walks away, which is probably never going to happen to at least one of the victims! It stinks!
