Didn’t somebody pull a gun on him though? I mean don’t get me wrong running into a lot of people to get away isn’t a good idea. A very bad idea..

Man faces double sentences for operating a motor vehicle on a roadway. Idiots would not stop loitering resulting in deaths. That's the real headline.

If ideology is taken into account when sentencing a person, we are going down a very dark path!

Firstly, F that nazi. Secondly, how did a story about a missing 69 year old woman in a bikini get linked to this story?

Whats the point of adding 419 years to the sentence? I mean just take away any chance of parole and he dies in jail anyways. It feels kinda virtue signally to just add more time

this guy didn't actually run the woman over who died. she died of a heart attack when he drove at her. and this scared piece of shit drove like that freaking out over a Fudd John Brown gun Club (Antifa Gun Club) harassing him with guns. it's a whole lot of derp

So does the second sentence run concurrently or consecutively with his original sentence? I mean, talk about a downer if you've spent the rest of your life in jail and you have to start another 419 years straight after.
