Why was the parasite driver of the stolen vehicle only charged with manslaughter?

The piece of crap should be charged with 2 counts of murder.

dope murder is premediated intent, it was an accident, there was no intention to have an accident and kill someone, you would be clueless in law.

The Law you refer to recognizes not only crimes of Commission, but also crimes of Omission.

It is the latter that fits the driver of the stolen car. It seems he didn't intend enough NOT to have an accident. His adopted priorities did not measure up to responsibilities of safe motoring. The outcome is tragic on many levels.

He is fully culpable.

Bullcrap, the piece of sh*t was in a stolen vehicle that police had given up chasing for safety reasons.
Apparently he also ran a red light, the taxi was pushed for 50 metres along after it was collected, so speed was obviously a factor also.

Throw the book at the lowlife criminal scum & lock him up for life.
He did break both his legs in the crash though, pity it wasn't his neck.

Did you read the article?

"Assistant Commissioner Gary Budge confirmed that the Toyota had been engaged in a short pursuit before the crash, but that chase was aborted on Canning Highway near Berwick Street in Victoria Park when THE DRIVER SWITCHED THE HEADLIGHTS OFF."

If a criminally driven vehicle is racing at "an indian or muslim driver" at 2am with its lights switched off then how is ethnicity relevant?

How could you tell who was driving in the car at 2 am dope it would of been too dark to see who was in the car,and it sounds like if the driver had more experience, they would of seen or sensed this car coming and avoided it, incompetence played a part in the accident as did the police pursuing him, if either
1. there was no police chase- which would of created a intense anxiety state in the criminal as well as increased taking of risk and increased speed
and 2. a more experienced driver was in the taxi
then the accident would most likely not of happened

The cab was entering an intersection on a green light when he was cleaned up by a stolen car being driven extremely fast through a red light. Please tell me how, with your vast driving experience, you would have avoided the collision.

Having driven those roads they are lit very brightly at intersections so I am surprised the taxi didn't see the Toyota landcruiser coming because of it's size.
