TrainingWheelsNeeded: Caelistis: Mager: I'm torn, as an Austinite it's sad to see such a tragedy. But since it happened to the people at SXSW, it makes me want to rack up the Grand Theft Auto points.

I feel you. I'm glad today saw the tail end of the SXSW farkwits, hipsters, losers and other trash exiting our fair city.

yeah, because now all those people will be gone. Austin is a great place with tons to do for a bunch of different types of people. can't we all just get along. What's next, MOTO GT? you have anything against gearheads? Can't wait for X Games!

InmanRoshi: wildcardjack: I found it interesting that the first two dead were on a bicycle and a moped. People who should have been wearing helmets, but no one has mentioned if they were or not.

Hate to break it to you, but when someone guns an automobile straight into you at full speed, your Huffy bike helmet isn't going to accomplish shiat.


Still, a helmet adds mass at a distance from your spine. The jerk might be more damaging than bopping your head on the ground.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Does anyone else think of that snowboarding video game when you see SXSW?


Yes all the dang time, I don't know why.  The game was fun tho.

H31N0US: Guy like this...they should just let him out, and turn their backs when the victims' friends and families catch up to him.

Cheaper and more satisfying for everyone involved.


I would pay to see that...

InmanRoshi: ShadowKamui: TheDirtyNacho: Jeng: Spanky McStupid: Will he be charged with a hate crime?

If the government is going to kill you, does it really matter what they charge you with?


He probably won't get the DP... more like life with no possibility of parole.  Also they'll have to argue he intended to kill those people to stick with capital murder.  The defense will naturally argue against this, and given 'reasonable doubt' and competent representation, would argue successfully I would think.

I think he'll be convicted of a lesser charges, but sentenced concurrently for each so he never leaves prison.

He killed 3 people while committing a felony (stealing a car and fleeing from cops), that's 3 counts of capital murder.  You also can't get life w/o parole except in capital murder cases.  That's about all his lawyer can do is argue that murderous car thief only deserves life in prison rather than the needle.  Though Travis county has only given the death penalty in the last 20 years to cop killers and people who kidnap, rape, and torture their murder victims; so the lawyer might not even have that much work to do

Plus it looks like he has upwards of $300 cash to buy an All Star   defense team.

Having a picture like that is almost like having "Wayne" as your middle name... Nobody's surprised you're going to prison.
