Nothing will happen to him, he will be returned to the community, and he will be given the opportunity to run over more people. We all need driver's licenses or we don't. I heard that Belgium didn't have driver's licenses until around 15 years ago. They grandfathered in everyone who was already driving. What it comes down to is the driving laws and who is responsible for paying the bills when an accident happens. I'm surprised the insurance lobby hasn't gone after this group, as insurance companies are picking up the tab for people who are not paying a dime into the system.

I think there is a slight flaw in your last sentence,if you drive legally and carry Auto ins.,your premiums are helping pay the expenses created by Galo and his"ilk"...

Personally, I don't care if someone has a driving licehse. i DO care, very much, that each one behind the wheel of a car has learned to drive safely, and has come means of being financially responsible for any damage done. California used to have laws that, if someone damaged another with their car, did not have insurance to cover it, the car was taken off the road until the damage was paid for. And the driver prohibited from driving intil it was paid. Seems to me the REAL problem here is California;s blatant refusal to uphold the laws already on the books. How can a mere mayor overturn state law about fiscal responsibility and licensure for drivers? WHO lets this clown Newsom carry this travesty of justice off? THAT is the problem
On Nov. 16, 2010, an unlicensed driver named Roberto Galo took a left turn at Harrison and 16th streets and hit motorcyclist Drew Rosenberg. After Galo backed over Rosenberg's body, the law-school student died. A jury convicted Galo for manslaughter and driving without a license. After serving 43 days in jail, he was released on home detention.

Don Rosenberg of Westlake Village -- in Los Angeles County -- blames San Francisco politics for his son's death. He also fears that the like-minded Obama administration will shield unlicensed drivers to the detriment of public safety -- and Washington isn't giving him...
