My guess is that the judge looked at the father with compassion rather than thinking, "I don't care how much this guy has suffered already" (!) and for that reason he justice system works so beautifully well.

Thanks for posting timtak. It's a shame that so few people have evolved away from the pitchfork revenge mentality.

What would the point of a longer sentence be? The anguish will be with him forever. The kids can't be brought back by sticking needles in this guy's arm. Any thirst for revenge in this instance is simple-minded and pathetic.

Convenient time for a fire when developers are looking to clear this area out for much-needed new hotels, Starbucks, and luxury shops. What better excuse? "Oh look, it's a fire hazard."
