  • Seems quite good justice for the attacker to pay a substantial sum to the person he assaulted, to carry out a some unpaid work in the community and have a supervision order. Certainly much cheaper than sending him to prison.

  • So you don't go to prison for assaulting a Police Officer quite badly ! Great Country we live in ! No wonder members of the public hardly get any justice when they are assaulted .
