Sacoolas should do right thing and go back to England to face the music. The Brits aren’t going to ‘make an example of her,’ she would probably only get a probation and a heavy fine, and her diplomatic link, would see her dealt with more favourably. This verdict will be another kick in the teeth for the Dunn family, who have been denied any form of justice for Harry throughout this long, drawn out case.

I agree wholeheartedly with you, Sacoolas must play ball with our friend’s in the UK, and stop hiding behind her husband’s diplomatic status. A cowardly act, and the extradition should have been granted.

I agree with both of you regarding Sacoolas. She should go back to England. However, a completely different question is whether the US should extradite her. That would create a dangerous precedent. Remember, diplomatic status is intended to protect diplomats.

And it is also vulnerable to abuse. Moral conscience and doing the right thing seems to be outdated in this ‘progressive’ world we live in.

I have to remind all of you that Sacoolas’ husband is not a DIPLOMAT but an intelligence officer, or, in other words, a spy. RAF Croughton is involved in hacking and drone strikes. Their intelligence officers are indispensable for both the US and the UK.

The wife of Sacoolas, who caused the crash, is not a diplomat. She is only married to one. Is diplomatic status supposed to protect everyone in the diplomats family?

Yes, of course, That is the purpose of diplomatic immunity. The rationale is that he is protected (through them being protected). It is not about their protection.
