Hockey and the Act of Murder__UPDATE

We shall see if the charge is murder or a lesser charge. Interesting he was charged and bonded out.

The article says he was charged with manslaughter.

Guess I was so disgusted I glossed over the charge.

Manslaughter is an extremely varied area of offending. It can involve an unintended death resulting from an assault, a fatality caused by negligence or someone who kills while suffering from a mental disorder. Sentence levels can also vary widely, from suspended sentences up to life sentences being given.

Is it the same standard in the UK as it is in the US? I suspect that it isn’t. This guy however, will never be allowed to play any form of hockey ever again. With all things considered that in of itself will be a haunting reminder as punishment he is deserving of.


He should do a prison sentence I think!
