I applaud the courts for not sending this guy to prison. That part is right and just. But the technical watering down of the definition of "reckless" is a travesty. The downgrading of his charges from felony to misdemeanor is a miscarriage of justice.
This happens in gun-friendly places like Utah. It's a disgrace.
A Juab County judge ruled there is not enough evidence to prove a Weber County man was reckless in the shooting death of his younger brother.
Please tell me how handling guns while under the influence of alcohol and forgetting there's a round in the chamber and pointing a gun at someone's head and pulling the trigger does not add up to reckless.
