Default driver uses car as weapon, driver gets life

It's good to see that a car driver, using a car as a weapon, has got his
just desserts, life with a minimum of eighteen years.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...n-2107951.html

"A driver who deliberately mowed down and killed a man after following his
cab home from a club was jailed for 18 years today.

Louis Tate, 24, of North Acton, west London, was found guilty at the Old
Bailey of murdering father-of-three Garry Frater, 32, following a retrial.

Mr Frater died on May 30 last year after being struck by a Ford Fiesta near
his home in Burnt Oak, north London.

Tate had claimed the death was the result of an accident, but he was
convicted on an 11-1 majority.

Mr Frater was crushed under the vehicle after it accelerated back over him
and deliberately drove over him again before driving off, jurors were told.

Mr Frater and friends had been followed as they took a minicab home from a
club in Watford, Hertfordshire, 10 miles away.

They had got into the cab but did not realise they had been followed until
they arrived, said Mark Heywood, prosecuting.

There had been words earlier after a woman in Mr Frater's party was
approached by Tate and his friend.

Mr Heywood said: "Garry Frater was run down in the road.

"That car was used as a weapon. It proved effectively lethal."

Judge Richard Hawkins jailed Tate for life with a minimum term of 18 years.
"

I'm just a bit surprised that no one else has posted it.

"Brimstone" gurgled happily, sounding much
like they were saying:

I'm not in the slightest surprised. You must have made it up, because it
can't possibly have happened. Impossible. Apparently.

Just wait until it goes to appeal, he will get a much lighter sentance

How do you account for the fact, though, that 11 of the jurors were not
apparently motorists, nor was the judge?

What are the chances of that happening, eh?

If you can't work it out, let us know what percentage of the adult
population you think are motorists, and I'll do the calculation for you.

In case you did not notice, he could have hit a cyclist, which makes
it on topic.

But he didn't, which makes it off topic.
