The ABC reports a case of common assault against an “antagonistic” boy in Kambah. Obviously, the report contains minimal information on which to form an opinion but I thought I’d form one anyway and see what others think.
If anyone came hurtling up my driveway (emphasis on “my”) after a good day’s worth of teasing me, I reckon they’d be lucky to get away with just a red arm and neck. How on earth did something like this even get to court? On the face of it, I’d have expected the outcome to be the boy’s parents hauling his sorry bott-bott round to apologise to the woman.
[Ed – Minor detail, the boy in question was 7. Also new reports are saying the woman has been acquitted.]
