Bob Breedlove, a champion endurance cyclist and respected orthopaedic surgeon from Des Moines, Iowa, USA, was killed when a pick up truck collided in to him.
The driver had no licence and was 15 years old.
He got probation, 24 hours of community service and paid $200, as the "consequence".
The family was unhappy with the "hometown favouritism" of the local authorities.
Why does the investigation sound like a cover-up?
There's no such thing as an accident - just human error mainly. So where are the deservedly harsh penalties for killing people?
Who decided killing a human one way results in a 20 year prison sentence, and killing a human another way results in a $200 inconvenience? Absolutely crazy!
