Did This Cop-Killing Illegal Get Off Easy?

An illegal immigrant killed two law enforcement officials last year, but despite a conviction, he didn’t go to jail. In fact, Maryland courts only fined him $280 for the texting-while-driving accident that resulted in the deaths of two Americans.
Daily Caller reports:
The prosecution proved that he drove in a “careless and imprudent manner,” but did not reach the level of a “gross deviation” from careful driving or a “reckless disregard” for human life, both of which would be necessary for more serious charges.
Back on Dec. 8, 2017, Carlos Wolff — an FBI agent and legal immigrant from Venezuela — was texting while driving and hit the concrete median on I-270 in Maryland. Sander Cohen — an arson investigator — stopped to help him.
While both of them were standing on the side of the highway, Garza Palacios struck them, sending both off-duty officers over the median and into the traffic. They both died.
Wolff’s widow said the Post that, “It’s ridiculous. He just pays $280, and that’s all he has to do.”

For comparison, Maryland routinely fines American citizens up to $500 for texting while driving—and that’s if you don’t kill anyone.
