An angry father threw a chair at a judge over the ‘absurdly low’ sentence given to the man who killed his two-year-old girl and her grandparents in a road accident.
The motorist killed the toddler and her 67 and 64-year-old grandparents instantly when he went off the road at 75mph in a 50mph zone.
And the distraught father of the two-year-old was furious when the driver was handed 120 hours of community service, with 60 days in custody if the work is not completed, launching a chair in her direction before being escorted from the Limburg, Netherlands, court by security.
Local media reports suggest the situation was worsened by the apparent absence of remorse shown by the motorist, who they say did not apologise.
The sentence has been widely criticised by those who have watched the video on social media, with one user calling it ‘bullsh***’ and another saying that ‘taking the life of three people NEEDS punishment’.
’120 hours of social work for taking 3 lives including a 2 year old child. He had the awareness of driving too fast, he was aware of taking the risk,’ wrote LZMieczu.
