    Murder trials are for dark-hearted people who intend to bring injury or death. Reckless? Yes. But manslaughter is ridiculous for doing 16 over the speed limit.
    Unsafe speed for conditions as well. It wasn;t just the speed it was ignoring the unsafe conditions which possibly dictated slower than the speed limit.
    While I agree prosecuting negligence as murder is bad, but manslaughter is not murder.
    Her negligence caused the death of a person. that belongs in criminal courts more than anything IMO.
    It's not all about money. Which is the only thing civil courts can do for a judgement
