Wow.. that's disturbing to me.
As long as I've worked in Social Services, I've come to know how quite twisted the world is but it always surprises me how little people think about the impact of their actions until it is too late. This guy is probably some young douchebag who had a moment of cager courage and had no presence of mind to realize that he almost just killed someone. I don't know how we can possibly instill the qualities of foresight and consequence in people so unfortunately shit like this will continue and the world will lose many amazing people to senseless acts of violence.
Yet the justice system can be so sympathetic to their wrecklessness, even after they destroy the lives of the loved ones of a person they just encountered on the road.
Really takes the wind out of my sails sometimes.
