Goes without saying that what happened was totally horrible and it’s rightly devastating for the victim’s family - and I understand instinctive response that the woman should come back to the UK and “face justice”. But the more I think about it, the more I wonder what end it would serve? Say she’s convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and does time - arguably if she’s a chronically unsafe driver then she’s off the roads (though she’s off the UK roads now anyway), and I guess it acts as a “deterrent” for other potentially dangerous drivers (but is this the kind of crime where public punishment actually helps lower offending rates?)
I don’t know what’s in her head or heart, but she’s presumably wracked with guilt and will have to cope with that for the rest of her life. Who really benefits from her suffering in prison along with that?
