The Truth

If the new guidelines are upheld that’s a prison sentence for that individual.

Lockdown should mean lockup for some people. Spitting is worse than punching someone. Disgusting!!!!!!

Gaz BSc.

All we seem to read about these days is low life scum like this. It’s a shame the Corvid19 hasn’t thinned a few of them out, like it has all the decent people

With a comment like this makes you just as vile but I guess its expected from a troll

The Judge

Sorry, I have no time for this type of scum. They should be strung up & beaten/whipped until dead…

Perry Hill

Can only hope that it is NOT just the Police who are protected by such vile behaviour. The public deserve equal respect and protection from the low life we know have en masse in every town on the Island.

You are more protected, on Statute, than Her Majesty’s finest on the thin blue line. Without wishing to appear patronising : that is why we have Police Officers. So that they may intervene in, or be subject to, incidents of which you would not wholeheartedly be comfortable with. Trouble is… If it happened to you, mate, you would have to bring a private prosecution with data and evidence gathered at the scene by yourself. So, fair question… You are protected, enshrined by immutable law- but others are protected with greater force. Sadly, these days, it is probably the future criminal!

What a vile man

Lock him up for 5 years
Emergency workers have a tough job and this scum should not be allowed to get off lightly with this vile assault. I hope his family and friends are proud of him.

Opinions Matter

What a vile excuse for a human being. Lock him up. We don’t need trash like that in a civilized society.

Old bean

Dirty scum bast rd hope he gets locked up for long time filth

Amos

Dirty bastard…

Old Mike

And the use of ‘spit masks’ is challenged on ‘human rights’ grounds. It’s an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ world we’re living in!

Smithy

Throw away the key. Scum of the earth.

Munch

Bring back public hangings

Lady Longdown Dunne-Standing

Never went away, my friend. National Gallery or the V and A has some of the finest in the world! Check ’em out when this period of Covidity is over. An education for us all, I am sure. Regards, Lady Dunne-Standing.

TAKE NO PRISONERS

NO-BODY SHOULD DISRESPECT THE POLICE YES SOME PEOPLE DISLIKE THEM ..HOWEVER THERE DOING A JOB AND MOST OF THEM HAVE FAMILIES TO GO HOME TOO INCLUDING CHILDREN … THIS IS TOTALLY OUT OF ORDER …AT THE END OF THE DAY THE POLICE ARREST THE CRIMINALS IT’S NOT THERE FAULT HALF THE TIME THEY GET A SLAP ON THE WRIST , THING’S LIKE THIS IS SICK AND PERSONALLY ANYONE ASSAULTING POLICE SHOULD GET MINIUM OF THREE YEARS ..” NOT A DAY EARLIER!!! ” PEOPLE NEED YOU LEARN THE MEANING OF THE WORD RESPECT ‘

Hope the Falcon pub bans this errect male organ for life. But, I doubt it !
Bring back public flogging.
It would be entertaining to watch miscrents, get flogged on a Saturday night in St Thomas Square, Newport.
