I guess the message is if you're going to run loud pipes try to be polite when you're stoped in traffic. VWW

Did the guy die? If yes, why not heavier charges?

Default Darwin award nominee

If Chapman did die, I think he should be nominated for the 2002 Darwin Award.

I seriously doubt that the world is a darker place because Chapman is no longer with us, or because Patton will be locked up for the next several years. I could be wrong -- perhaps Chapman was days away from discovering a cure for cancer, and Patten was on his way to a construction site where he was joining Jimmy Carter in building homes for the homeless, but somehow, I doubt it.



Gotta say that 2-8 years shooting a man in a fight that the perp started seems pretty light.

Think you are right -- on both counts.



In spite of the title, nothing in the article suggests that he died. This makes the charges a bit more palatable.

Read the story again. If the guy had died the charges would have been at a minimum

Default Just a question, why doesn't the AMA ...

[*]Assuming the guy didn't die and I am not a lawyer, why wasn't the charge attemped (aggravated) murder.?[*] If he did die, why doesn't the AMA go hire some attorneys to file a wrongful death suit?[*] I wonder if Patton would of received the same light plea agreement if he had killed a kid in car reving his engine.
