I agree. This man has ruined his own life through his carelessness, and he had no intention of harming anyone. I think the jail sentence is appropriate, though I can imagine that the families don't think so.
The immediate reaction, from what I saw and heard watching on TV, was subdued. Perhaps it was relief maybe even shock. There didn't appear to be much anger from the family towards this individual.
I've been following the case more or less .
I read the article and it just heart breaking, everybody looses in this situation. it almost brought me to tears reading about all these families loosing family members like that.
This tragic story strikes me as a normal guy who made a very careless decision while trying to enhance the rock n' roll entertainment for the crowd. Assuming he is not a sociopath, the thoughts that likely torment his every waking moment are probably relentless.
All things considered, I would categorize a robber who stabs someone to death in the commission of a crime to be the worse criminal. This guy didn't plan his night around how he could kill a bunch of people.
