    If I'm in an open convertable and menaced by an aggressive thug, I can only hope he's the only one I run over.

    Seriously: if you have a bicycle, please sell it and get yourself something appropriate to your mental situation (perhaps a strait-jacket?). If you have a car .... let's hope you're an attorney general struggling with your alcholism.

    Since I followed this story from right after it happened, I remember a few details that might be pertinent...first and foremost, Bryant was trained in BOXING, so panic was an unlikely reaction from him. Further, aggression/threatening posture still doesn't justify vehicular homicide. Bryant hit him, Sheppard reacted by jumping up and latching onto the car, and Bryant took off, trying to 'scrape' Sheppard off the side of his car against several road fixtures, and DID 'run him over' with the back wheel. Witnesses estimated he was doing about 80kmh at one point during this event, IIRC. Bryant's reaction was to drive into a parking garage and sit, waiting for the police that someone else called.

    Yes, SHOULD have been a trial.
