Litter louts

Why does stamping on someone's head and body and kicking them even after they have ceased moving only merit one year in a young offenders insititute? They were fortunate the victim wasn't murdered.

The victim had asked them to pick up some litter they dropped in broad daylight in the centre of Bristol.

It's something I used to do - make people pick up litter. I once made 2 18 year olds pick up a broken glass bottle and all the bits they'd just chucked on a road. I also made a gang pick up stuff they'd chucked on the floor right next to a bin..... The final straw came when some lads from across the road (they were students) chucked apples at our windows - I marched over and before I knew what I was doing, I had my hands round this 20 year old's neck while his 3 mates were cowering. As I was throttling him up against a wall with his feet dangling, I suddenly let go and walked back to my house.

The next morning, I went to the doctors - she put me on stuff to calm me down before I killed someone or someone killed me......

Now, when I see someone chuck stuff on the floor, I just walk away......

BTW Snafu - welcome back - I've missed your daaily questions.....

Thanks Alfie.

I fear that the litter louts would have been imprisoned for longer had they been drunk in charge of a vehicle that hit the victim even if the injuries were identical.

To me, beating someone senseless is the more serious offence.
