Agreed Humburd. His statement was disturbing and insensitive, to say the least.

"Himself the father of two daughters ages 11 and 6, he apologized to Olivia's family in court prior to sentencing. He also explained while he knows Olivia's family would like to see him serve more time in prison, he has 'to get home to his daughters'." I'm stunned by the callousness of this statement. The Thompsons don't get to see their little girl again because of HIM.

Absolutely ludicris, how does he take a child's life and get only 4 years. What is this world coming to. Further more how can he make a comment and say he needs to get out to watch his daughters grow. Think about the daughter you took fool, her parents never to see her hold her kiss her watch what she would've grown up to be. Ignorant and very inconsiderate are you. God don't like ugly and to me that's what you are.....

Four years is an outrage. He not only hit her, left her, but then hid his car and went drinking??? He will get out early on "good" behavior and then get out only to hurt others. Revoked license is a joke, he will drive anyways. Why can't he think if that was his daughter and someone left her to die?? He probably doesn't care about them anyhow.

Four years isn't enough jail time. He fled the scene just as a murderer might do and then hid his car. My heart goes out to the family and friends of Olivia Thompson.

How is this idiot going to get to schools to speak when his license has been revoked for 10 years? He should not be allowed to have a vehicle and the one he has should be impounded.
