The family of a joyrider who was killed in a police chase have been awarded £20,000 in compensation.Sadly, he's already bred, so a Darwin Award isn't justified.
Lewis' grandfather Peter Howells today slammed the way the case had been dealt by the police force.
He said: 'He was a young man, he had a young baby, and it's ruined our lives.Well, that's down to his own stupidity in stealing cars and zooming around like a moron until he meets the proverbial immovable object, whereupon his even more foolish decision not to wear a seatbelt caught up with him.
We can only hope the infant hasn't inherited his low IQ from him, as he undoubtedly did from you. Maybe we'll get lucky, and it'll skip the third generation, eh?
'These officers didn't even get a speeding fine, they've had nothing, just a slap on the wrist - this isn't justice.'Actually, for once, I'm in favour of a slap on the wrist. I don't think they even deserve that.
And I've a bone to pick with the TPA for once.
The compensation payout was slated today by the TaxPayers' Alliance.
Campaign manager Robert Oxley said: 'It is a tragedy that a man has lost his life but that does not justify this outcome.'No, Robert. It's no 'tragedy'. Quite the opposite. I think we can afford a lot more £20,000 payouts. There's no shortage of deserving customers out there for a quick demonstration of how the laws of physics work...
