Dad Throws Chair At Judge After She Lets Daughter's Killer Walk Free (Video)


An angry dad threw a chair at a judge over the lenient sentence given to the man who killed his daughter and her grandparents.

The man's two-year-old daughter and her grandparents were killed when a driver went off the road in the Netherlands. He was said to be travelling at 75 mph in a 50 mph zone.

During the sentencing hearing, the convicted driver was given 120 hours of community service or 60 days in custody if he does not complete the required work.

The judge said the man should be 'given the sentences imposed in similar cases'.

The leniency caused the father to erupt in anger, throwing a chair in the judge's direction before being he was escorted from the court in Limburg.

According to Metro, the situation was apparently made worse by the absence of remorse shown by the motorist, who didn't apologise.

The father's outrage was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube.

Commenters were divided over the father's actions.

One, Dylan Durret, wrote: "Perhaps if this alpha bruh had been lifting more, that chair would have caught the judge square in her face and killed her, to which he would only serve 120 hours of community service for it clearly having been an accident."

But Corey Muncey added: "He didn't murder anyone. You have to prove he willingly killed them, to say he murdered them. Then again, this site is full of 12 year olds that don't understand anything, let alone have a driver's license.

"He lost control of his vehicle for reasons that aren't even stated here. He could have hit a water puddle and hydroplaned. Should he go to prison or get the death sentence for things out of his control? no."
