Bash someone unconscious – 80 hours community service???

By nazasaurus 1 October 2014 21

The Canberra Times reports that a Canberra man who bashed and kicked a Civic reveller unconscious has been sentenced today to 80 hours community service work.

The footage is horrifying to watch and the sentence seems woefully inadequate. What interested me is the statement that the magistrate didn’t think jail was appropriate… so when is it appropriate ??

What’s Your opinion?

So, I’ll paraphrase my original comment – I hope you are making a judgement based on facts, including those that wasn’t available to the court.
Because 80hours community service IS a bit of a surprise after seeing the footage. I think we can agree there.

Indeed, we can agree 🙂
