Attack on an Autistic boy. Justice met.

Attack on Autistic teenager.

In the Daily Express today, 28/10/2010, is a sad article written by Jan Disley. In the article she states that despite public outrage 3 Manchester 'yobs' were given community services for their 3-day assault on an autistic teenager, described by a judge as 'grotesque' and 'almost torture'.

What did they do? This is not nice, but if there is any justice in life, or the courts, they will get their come uppance. This is what they did: kicked and stamped on his head repeatedly; punched him in the chest; beat him with a tennis raquet, scratched his arms and legs with sandpaper and threw him down a hill. He was pelted with dog mess; had tape attached to his groin area which was then ripped off; he was forced to drink vodka until he passed out. The yobs pleaded guilty to actual body harm and common assault. Why did they do it? They said they were bored.

Well I'm certainly not bored and despite my old age would like to have a few minutes with each of them, in private. I am outraged.

I cannot believe the lows to which these gouls will stoop to. We need discipline back in this broken society of ours. They should be named and shamed. Let the public take a hand to them if the law won't deal with them appropriately!

I find this such a heart wrenching story, cuz 3 yobs were bored they torchered and humiliated an autiistic boy well how about if it was 3 adults and a so called normal boy they would have got more for there punishment i feel than they did, i do pray there is karma in this world and all 3 of them get theres...it is sick how 3 vile individuals can think such evil behavior could be amusing to them and take away there boredom..i am in agreement id love to have private time with all 3 of them then id let my son have revenge an eye for an eye in this case would feel good even if others say it isnt Christian to want to inflict pain and suffering to a human being.

Cruel and despicable. Why? & how? can people commit such inhumane acts upon another person......vulnerable and trusting person. Their 'punishment' is not commensurate with their actions - not by a long shot!! Their day will come - karma will catch up with them.
