No, its used for justice. Not slapping people on the wrist for what is one small step from murder.
I actually just now read the article and I'm even more disgusted than I was before. If you hit someone with a large amount of force in the side of the head it can be fatal. I don't care if he didn't mean to kill him, he certainly was trying to physically harm and in doing so ended his life. The article said he couldn't speak english, which means he is most likely an immigrant. I'm sure he, like most the immigrants before him, came here and busted his hump to make a life for his future children and grand children. In an instant all of that was taken from him by some punk ass wuss who sucker punched him in the temple.
I may have over reacted a little when i said till his hair turns grey, but if a person can receive, on average, 15 years for DUI vehicular manslaughter then this guy should receive a penalty even more stiff. He went out his way to intentionally harm another person and in doing so killed them.
Prison: 20 years. Maybe he can learn a trade.
