Kill a motorcyclist, get a ticket

How can you pull in front of a motorcycle, kill the rider and get nothing more than a ticket? Is “failure to yield right of way” the real crime here? What if pulling in front of a motorcycle was considered vehicular manslaughter? Would that be enough to get drivers’ heads out their asses and pay attention to what’s on the road?

Marjorie Stuver gets to pay a fine and go on her merry way. The family and friends of Devin Kusse, on the other hand, must pay a much higher price. How is that justice?
