If it is not only appalling that the life of a cyclist, killed by a driver who was clearly in the wrong, is worth next to nothing (Is a £200 fine and three points on your licence an appropriate punishment for killing a cyclist on the road).
We now get the indignity of this
Apparently the fact that Matthew's parents didn't make him wear a helmet, is mitigation for the following behaviour...
"Weaving was found guilty by a jury in December 2008 of manslaughter and other charges after the court heard he had driven at 83mph in a 45mph zone in Connecticut. His record showed that he had been arrested on five previous occasions for drunk driving."
...and it's the lack of a helmet that is causing the mental anguish?
