So the tough guy decides to harass a friend of the victim,who happens to be of African descent,and when the 16 year old intervenes to try and pacify the situation he gets king hit and his head hits the floor with a thud resulting in serious head injuries.Yet another POS that needs a flogging!

This POS needs to be taken out of circulation permanently.

Funnily enough, that’s probably what the “tough guy” was thinking.

“Violence against women Australia says no.”

July 23.

Will probably just get a slap on the wrists by then.

If he faced court today the guy will still be in hospital.

If he didn’t make bail would he be in jail for 3 months. Why so long

I’m not so sure he’s actually capable of thought and therefore isn’t able to comprehend the potential consequences of his actions.Of course the other scenario is that he’s an utter cnut!

What sort of loser nutjobs get punch in a mall for no reason at all on a Friday afternoon? These scum are a disgrace. I think there should be a little bit of punishment mixed in with the rehabilitation efforts.

It’s people like this who make me wonder why places like bus interchanges and the like have so little in the way of security. Hell, I’ve seen pretty much this occur on a bus. Thank Christ nobody was seriously injured that time. Then again, it takes a special kind of (likely doped up) moron to do it in a busy food court.

‘Tough guys’ absolutely sicken me. Nobody cares how many guys you smashed ’cause you’re so cool. I hope he gets locked up and sodomized by Bubba.

Humans can put a man on the moon, drive a robot on mars yet every day someone is murdered, bashed or hurt by a fellow human being. We fight wars in foreign lands for reasons unknown, half the world is obese and the other half starving? We require oxygen to breathe yet we cut down and destroy entire forests. Humans are a plague on the earth like no other. Hope this young boy is ok. Brave to stick up for his friend if we had more heros like this kid and less villains like his attacker the world would be a much nicer place.

I found out this morning the 16 year old, is the son of my neighbour, who is my landlord.

I can’t go into the specifics of the event, because the police are investigating, however, he’s still in hospital, and whilst alert and responding to visitors and medical staff, he’s still a while off from getting the OK to head home.

He does have some luck on his side, he’s fit, young and plays sport, and the doctors say this will aid his recovery, but he can write off his sporting career for a number of months.

Doctors are also not sure if he will fully recover or retain some kind of permanent brain injury.

Yep and the disheartening thing is that as the population increases things will only get worse so like i’ve been saying for decades ‘a pox on them all’!
