I almost feel sorry for him. There are plenty of reasons to do so. He was young and having fun with a 'toy' that pretty much everybody in Australia has. He went a bit to far and made a mistake. He panicked then and it he panicked and fled while on bail. Yeah he was young and a coward. But being afraid of consequences is quite common.
Instead the path he has now chosen has put him on the run from the law and responsibilities and it is all catching up with him. A decade of stress and anxiety and longer still...'
Had he faced up to his sins initially then he could be back on track by now.
Instead he's sentenced himself....
And go even deeper... In many ways I don't even blame these perpetrators. Because these people are mere products of the motoring environment that we have created for ourselves in Australia. And the sad truth is that EVERY day we are continuing to create urban landscapes based around the motor vehicle.
Most people who kill with the motor vehicle are just unfortunate symptoms of the underlying problem.
