Omg, what is going on? They commit these crimes and get off lightly?? Sick and tired of reading about how they are laughing at the judicial system?
Start locking them up, which obviously is not going to happen? So make them do community work. England has got it so wrong that’s why these people do it know they will get a slap on the wrist and told don’t be naughty?
Get your act together make their sentences hard so they …. their pants at the thought of court.

“£5 compensation”

If I was the victim I’d tell them not to insult me

So the victim, being the taxi driver gets the £5 fair. End of. Is he in shock or something or suffering from PTSD ?
No, he ain’t, all part of the job, always has been. ( To many snowflakes on this site ).

Compensation is for the stress of the incident, the time it took to deal with, the other fares he lost. (Too many idiots on this site)

What a stupid comment. The police must be doing something for the person to be in court. It is the justice system that lets them down.

yep, they should have simply said “ahh you are not meant to be here” and scooped him and his family up in a car, drove them to Gatwick/Heathrow and put them on a plane bound for the geographical location that they were born into that day. Job Done.

The ticket price cost, is a far less expense than an endless stream of benefit payments/housing stretching over many years into the future.
