This is disgusting behaviour , a bottle fgs the courts need to dish out a punishment that deters this animal behaviour instead of a slapped wrist £50 fine and £80 cost .
1 decent sentence and would make other think twice.
youd get more punishment for slapping someone’s ass

Quite. The current culture of light sentencing is giving the nod to feral thugs and leaves decent people with little protection.
The party that advertises itself as being ‘tough on crime’ is nothing of the sort, more expert image makers and propagandists. The other lot don’t promise anything better, in fact politicians have become so out of touch with the realities we all face in our communities.
– Keep lobbying, keep posting people, or any other way to get heard…

One of my pet hates is people who refer low life scum to animals! You don’t see cows in a field going around bottling each other do you? People are vermin,leave the animals alone!
