Why prosecute someone who would thereafter become a drain on taxpayers for his medical needs. Sounds to me like Karma has already visited this man with plenty of punishment.

What? We are worried about paying for his support in prison? I'll bet you a nickle that his hospital/ambulance, etc, etc, are not covered by his own comprehensive medical coverage. Stolen car? What do you bet the tax payers are already paying for everything. Why not put him in the slammer where he belongs. If he stays out, he certainly will re offend.

"Why not put him in the slammer where he belongs."

It isn't his support while he is in the slammer that should have you concerned. It is the cost for continuing medical care that I'm referring to. Depending on how severe and permanent his brain injuries are house him in an institution. That's the last place I'd want to do time.
