The evidence was there for all to see. A gang of 3 evil teens - used a mobile phone to film themselves carrying out depraved assaults on their 17-year-old autistic victim - who suffers from Asperger's syndrome.
In a sickening spree of violence the thugs kicked and stamped on his head; then deliberately and repeatedly punched him in the chest; beat him with a tennis racket finally throwing him down a steep embankment.
To add insult to injury the terrified teenager who was heard begging "Please don't hurt me", was also pelted with dog excrement, had his limbs scratched with sandpaper and was forced to drink vodka and gin until he passed out.
All this while the yobs laughed and joked. In a final and most humiliating assault, they then applied adhesive tape to his genital area before ripping the tape off.
So in a fine example of British justice - the much be-wigged judge set them free after papering an order which imposed three-month curfews on them; asking them to carry out 80 hours unpaid community work as an intensive alternative to custody. One wonders if that includes trimming the judge's garden hedges or polishing his Bentley.
He also ordered them to be supervised by probation officers for 12 months.
He justified his sentence by saying said he had taken into account the attackers' ages, remorse and the fact they had pleaded guilty.
No doubt all ordinary Brits are feeling much safer today!
Sharia law anyone? After all Brits are now eating halal meat. Bring troops back from Afghanistan and ship these yobs out there instead.
