I never know that killing somebody was in somebodies scope of employment besides being a hitman. What a jackazz.
I was thinking the same thing. Most employers I know of have a driving policy that clearly states that even though you are driving on company business, if you break the law you're responsible. I can see a company paying for a car, gas, tolls, etc. I can not see them paying for tickets or other fines that were given based on the employees negligence by not following the laws of the road or the company's driving policy.
This whole situation stinks, but it is not surprising at all.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
