Criminal injustice in Belfast

The man who killed top Irish road racing cyclist David McCall by dangerous driving was caught speeding on another two occasions after he caused the fatal accident, the Belfast Telegraph can reveal.

Businessman Michael Croome (27) had form before he killed the cyclist:

Before the 2008 crash Croome had been convicted twice for speeding and once for careless driving.

So how does the British judicial system regard this record of criminality? Well, obviously it allows this unrepentant highly dangerous reckless maniac to get back behind the wheel of a car. He was banned from driving for five years.
