It's been ten years since David Attias was committed to a high security mental institution following his arrest for killing four pedestrians and severely injuring a fifth, but a Santa Barbara, Calif. judge has ruled that Attias is now eligible for release.

In Feb. 2001, Attias, the then 18-year-old son of Hollywood film director Daniel Attias, sped down a busy residential street in his 1991 Saab, plowing into parked cars and killing Christopher Divis, 20, Nicholas Bourdakis, 20, Ruth Levy, 20 and 27-year-old Elie Israel. Albert Levy, 27, ended up in the intensive care unit.

After he'd run them down, numerous witnesses saw Attias get out of his car, screaming that he was "the angel of death." He was convicted of murder, but then acquitted because the court ruled that he was insane.

Going to have to ban cars then so that no one provides him with one since he can’t be held accountable for his own actions.
