mild admonishment from sheriff for wrong way driver. Really is depressing
A few of the comments are noteworthy:
So doing 60 in a 40 zone and being on the wrong side of the road is not reckless?
So someone is killed, but that's not careless enough for prison?
And why do these people always look like knuckle-dragging neanderthals?
""This quite obviously had a terrible outcome for the family of the accused"
The ACCUSED? Jesus H Christ....
So 50% above the speed limit is not recklessly fast?
Another example of exemplary justice ........ I think not. WTF is the matter with the judge!! The driver was at least 20mph over the speed limit, lost control of his car, on the wrong side of the road killing the cyclist who was minding his own business cycling to work. The judge is an ar$e . The defendant Stephen McKay should have got at least a 7 years prison sentence. He clearly has anger management issues and is a lying scumbag.
Sheriff Craig McSherry has no problem jailing people for climbing bridge or for animal cruelty.... This man is not fit to serve on the bench
His judgement is certainly questionable.
A REAL-LIFE ‘Spiderman’ who caused traffic mayhem after climbing almost 400 feet up the Forth Road Bridge has been jailed....
And there you have it. He upset the traffic.
Sums up this country doesn't it?
Glad I don't live in that area, I'm an early morning commuter too.
Oh my God thats awful - as already posted how is 60 in a 40 on the wrong side of the raod not deemed reckless? I think that judge must be losing it to give a verdict like that especially with this lunatics previous charge.
Kill someone and get community service...worrying times!
RIP poor cyclists family...thats just a terrible story through and through.
And he tried initially to bullshit his way out of it
When police arrived McKay told them Mr Taylor did not have his lights on and had "hit the car".
Accident investigators found tyre marks and skid marks which indicated McKay had been driving on the wrong side of the road, and had lost control.
The judge is a clown
Is there no way to dispute this sentence? This is a abberration!
Lesson: If you want to kill someone, and avoid jail, run them over with a car.
