Phew. read through most of the previous thread.
Just a few thoughts. I doubt that there will be a deffense of self deffense. You aren't allowed to kill someone like that in that situation. Excessive force, anyone?
From past news reports on similar incidents, it seems to me the courts go light on anyone who kills with a vehicle, regardless of social standing.
However, I smell a smear campaign in the media about the victim already. (on again, off again girl friend-- details we don't need to know unless of course we were looking to form a negative opinion of the victim.) Maybe I'm nitpicking. We'll see if there's stories in the coming days where people say the victim was confrontational, yadda yadda yadda.
In which case, we should take carefull note of the by lines in the articles.
