  1. So this scum bag launches a serious, unprovoked and sustained attack on an individual based on his sexuality, but then has the audacity to use in his defence that he was treated roughly by the Police??

    Hope he gets a very long sentence and is forced to go cold turkey for his addiction.

    Should be 22 months not 22 weeks.

  3. Homophobic people are animals.

    1. You beat me to it!

    Assaulting a gay man will not get him a jail sentence but biting a police office will.

  5. I bet you’re a biter Keith.

    Whats a “Homosexualiis”

    Is this like a “fukingidiotiis?

    1. Actually Will, I thought this story actually might be about our friend Keith. The only thing that makes me doubt it is that the criminal in question is only 22 and I think Keith (despite his childlike capacity for reason) has been around rather longer.

      1. “Actually Will, I thought this story actually might be about our friend Keith”

        You make a good point, Rehan. Lets look at it scientifically:

        1. denied his part in the assault was homophobic – Yep ✔
        2. he had been struggling with drug abuse problems – Oh, totally ✔
        3. and had been drunk during the assault – Is Keith ever sober? ✔
        4. he was going to behave like a dog – Keith is an animal ✔

        But yeah, Keith is about 98 or something. And mad too. So perhaps not.

        :)

        1. Keith is Ken's achilles heel - they love getting sweaty together 26 Apr 2012, 7:40pm

          Keiths preference is to resort to personal attacks but doesn’t like to take it (unless it’s a cock of course).

        2. how did you do the cool tick thing? :)

  6. What about the friend who started the attack?

    1. Yes, interesting point. Perhaps because he didn’t bite a police officer he got off?

  7. Aww diddums. Run along then.

    1. Hee hee, it thinks its beaten me with its drunken comment. Bless.

  8. I won’t condemn your view and attitude I will just feel sorry for you x

    Mansfield is a brilliant place to live but as with any other place you get your fair share of morons.

  10. I don’t know what a community order is but it sounds like this troll was already in trouble with the law. He is a real piece of work to join in on a beating of someone. He is obviously a follower and the guy that instigated the fight should be locked up too. Hopefully the guy that got beat up will recover. There is too much missing from this article.

  11. The anti gay Christan hate group called NOM or National Organization for Marriage has a plot to use Africans and Spanish to attack LGBT people and here proof, http://www.presstelegram.com/breakingnews/ci_20333841/long-beach-men-charged-halloween-hate-crime-accept?source=pkg They have similar people where you are.

  12. Here is proof there are anti gay Christian hate groups out to use people to make trouble for gays.

    How was it at the clinic today Keith when they told you that Ken had shared his gonnorhea with you?

  14. What about the guy who started the assault? Was he prosecuted too? Or did the CPS only pursue this one because he bit a police officer?

  15. As usual, the butthurt ‘Will’ is upset by my views and resorts to personal abuse rather than challenging or ignoring my views. It is accepted in debating circles that personal abuse signals defeat.

    “the butthurt ‘Will’ … personal abuse … is accepted in debating circles that personal abuse signals defeat.”

  16. (The trouble with having trolls’ comments deleted is that the discussion thread must then become completely confusing to a new reader.)
