  1. The headline is misleading and needs to be re-worded

    1. Agreed. It makes it looks like he attacked his own father.

      1. Has the headline been changed since you wrote that? There seems little that’s ambiguous about the headline as it reads now.

  2. How about father of 12 instead? 12 months for this? this is going to become a violent country.

    1. There is violence, and there are thugs, in every country. What is good is that unbalanced psychos like this one are now held responsible for their actions and the judiciary in the UK no longer allows them to get away with it.

  3. I’m shocked that jumping on someone’s head isn’t classed as attempted murder.

    LGBT people, go study Krav Maga or Target Focus Training, so when jerks like this come along, you can hand them their own teeth.

  5. He so pretty. Enjoy your 12 months. Say hi to Bubba, and be sweet for him.

  6. 12 months for stamping on some ones head , the T**T could have killed him, he should have got more as he will be out in 6 months, you know what our courts are like,

  7. Good to see that this thug is behind bars, though 12 months is too short a sentence for attempted murder. The two women involved in the homophobic attack should also have been convicted. They didn’t stamp on the victim’s head, but their homophobic taunts could have been the flame that ignited the violent behaviour of the thug.

    @ RJP and Gavin.

    Stamping on someone’s head is sickening.

    Advocating rape and violence in retaliation is equally sickening.

    Go read ‘FISH: a Memoir of a Boy in a Man’s Prison’ by T.J. Parsell and you will realise how vile your comments are.

  9. I would like to address the fact that headline is misleading – the attack my brother committed was not due to the victim being ‘gay’ ..my brother did not act based upon any form of homophobia it was the two girls involved who were the individuals who shouted out the homophobic language . I can assure that my brother is not homophobic in any form or way..i myself is a lesbian and we have many gay/lesbian individuals within my family. Please do not think that i am defending his actions in any form or way , what he did was uncalled for and i am ashamed to be related to him however, at the same time i believe that if there is going to reports on him , the information provided should be correct. The attack was not of any homophobic nature . and i agree that the two girls should of been convicted due to their homophobic language. I also believe that 12 months is not good enough and the sentence should have been longer..

  10. A very strange thing to post, but I know this man, known him since I was young, and I can tell you that in all honesty I know he is a violent person but i think it should be made clear that this was not done as a hate crime but most probably to impress the girls he was with, he has gay friends… Poor mislead dude, nice guy…well he has changed since he came out of prison… last time
