Chain-Reaction Crash Kills 11

link please ... (http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-crash27jan27,0,3761980.story?coll=la-home-headlines)

Officials said the carnage was caused by a despondent man from Compton, Juan Manuel Alvarez, 25, who parked his green Jeep Grand Cherokee on the tracks that run along the border of Glendale and the Los Angeles neighborhood of Atwater Village. As Metrolink's regular commuter train No. 100 from Moorpark to Union Station bore down on him just after 6 a.m., Alvarez leaped from the vehicle, Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams said. He was arrested at the scene and, after being taken to County-USC Medical Center, was booked on suspicion of murder. Prosecutors are weighing formal charges.

A man apparently intending to commit suicide parked his SUV in the path of a Metrolink commuter train Wednesday morning, then jumped out of the way in time to watch a chain-reaction wreck that killed at least 11 people and injured about 180.

That guy should get some Se7en treatment, torturing and starving him for several years, without letting him die.

I think torturing the mentally ill went out some while ago, at least in more advanced countries.

how are they going to convict this guy on murder charges? surely it would be manslaughter?

or does murder in a legal sense include performing an act which will likely lead to the deaths of others, even if unintentional?

In america they have a whole bunch of different murder charges from First Degree down to Third Degree a lot of what comes under Third Degree murder there would be manslaughter charges in the UK.

OK, I have found more on it:

de·praved–heart murder
/di-'prAvd-'härt-/
: a murder that is the result of an act which is dangerous to others and shows that the perpetrator has a depraved mind and no regard for human life
NOTE: Depraved-heart murder is usually considered second- or third-degree murder.

It's actually Pink Floyd's sequel to Atom Heart Murder.

We'd refer to that as dolus eventualis, which is considered a form of intent.

I think that's what would apply anyway?

I don't know. I don't know what he'd be charged with in the UK.
