So you can assault an emergency worker and police officers and get a suspended sentence!!!! what sort of message is that sending out, absolutely ludicrous what the hell is wrong with these judges, all these nasty crimes and not one prison sentence, i feel for the police, they must feel so demoralized and let down by the system. I wanted to be a policewoman years ago, glad i didnt go ahead with it, they have no authority anymore, cant touch the scum in case they are called out for abuse or mistreatment, criminals just laugh at them,
