A small wager on his fate?

Kidnapping is one of the foulest crimes on the books.

For this reason it carries the death penalty on many parts of the world. In NZ it carries a maximum of 14 years imprisonment.

It's good to see this swine charged with kidnapping. Of course some smarmy lawyer will defend him saying that he 'only' intended to take the car- no doubt to deliver bibles to crippled pensioners.

I don't see it that way- you steal a car, you take the consequences. But no fear, you are in New Zealand and you will probably get two years, tops.

I don't think an inadvertent kidnapping quite deserves the death penalty.

But 14 years sounds fair...
