I totally disagree with the charge of anything other than reckless driving and without a license carting illegals, that would be aiding and abetting a criminal activity.
Would you feel the same way if the kid had crashed into another car, and killed one of your family members?
After all, according to you: IT WAS JUST AN ACCIDENT.
I'm actually looking forward to your response, though I have a strong feeling it will be just as ignorant as that post was.
When I was 4 years old I was in a car involved in a head-on collision. I was thrown out of the car and suffered a brain concussion. There was no criminal charges against the driver who caused it. Actually they were the ones worse off for it. The guy's wife was pretty well cut up, In the ambulance I regained consciousness enough to see her lying there covered with blood.

The loss of life is irrelavent to the case, it is collateral damage - unintended.
Ok so he has another charge - fleeing and alluding.

Just because they want to send a message and try him as an adult does not warrant the murder charge. The deaths resulted from a vehicle accident.

How about targeting the group that hired an underage kid to smuggle humans into the country?
Unless they actually think a 15 year old thought of this plan himself? I doubt they are that stupid.. I'm sure there is a smuggling gang behind this whole operation.
The boy, whose name was not released because of his age, told police that human smugglers threatened to kill his family if he did not take the wheel of a van that rolled over on U.S. Highway 83 on April 10 in Palmview, Texas, said Chris Barrera, the city's police chief.
The boy, a U.S. citizen, is among six others from the United States and Mexico who face immigrant harboring charges in U.S. District Court, Barrera said. Seventeen illegal immigrants were in the van when it rolled over after Border Patrol agents pursued it, he said.
