I surrender

I cannot keep up my Pantheon of Prosecutorial Nifong Potato Heads. There are so many my list making task is becoming onerous and depressing. The latest ; a 15 year old trying to impress girls accidentaly backed over a child :scared, he drove off. He has been charged as an adult with vehicular homocide. If convicted he will enter years of incarceration as a child and be released as as a hardend criminal. A mother neglectfully kills her child and is charged with murder. What purpose is served by indictments like this ? There should be a crime termed "terminal stupidity" under which people could be charged for events of this type and prosecutors would have an alternative to idiocy.
