Arguably, you should be allowed to run over anyone who's standing directly in front of or behind your car, if only because that person could be literally anywhere in the entire world, and yet they've chosen to be in harm's way.
Perhaps they have a death wish? It's not your fault if someone wants to die.
Suge Knight has been in jail for the past three and a half years, awaiting trial for running over a couple of Dr. Dre's weed carriers on the set of a TV commercial for the movie Straight Outta Compton, in the parking lot of an off-brand hamburger restaurant.
Knight was there to confront Dr. Dre, probably because he felt he should be financially compensated for having been portrayed in the film. Dre's weed carriers weren't trying to hear it, and they may have pulled a gun on Suge. Why else would he have taken off running?
I remember reading, years ago, that Suge had a pretty good chance of getting off on the vehicular manslaughter, especially after the guy who didn't die refused to testify. The concern was that he might get life anyway on a three-strikes offense, for stealing a paparazzi's camera.
Regardless, I don't understand how you don't take a case like this to trial, even if you're forced—for financial reasons—to defend yourself, Colin Ferguson-style. If he pleaded not guilty and lost, he would have gotten a life sentence. But the 28 years he ended up with #MidasWhale be a life sentence.
