    who'd want to be a cop if you could be put away for accidental discharge of a firearm (into a person)?

    would you be a UPS driver if they gave automatic prison sentences for bumping into people?

    I think UPS drivers DO get prison sentences for running people over.

    If the conviction for involuntary manslaughter did not occur in a federal, but in a state court, the federal sentencing guidelines don't apply. State sentencing varies considerably, but the general elements are the same as in the federal courts, though usually a bit more severe. Some states, such as California, use discriminate sentencing, which means sentences are mandated for low, middle, and high severity. The judge only has discretion to choose which level, and must order the sentence proscribed for that level. Involuntary manslaughter carries a sentence of either 24, 36, or 48 months in California, depending on the judge's determination of the severity.

    Your point is?

    It was an unfortunate accident and the officer feels terrible. He didn't do it on purpose. What Do you Want? His head on a plate? Destroy him ?
