I just love that bit at the end where the toerag`s brief said his client had "genuine contrition". I`d much rather the swine had irreversible brain damage from the punches he took from the house owner.
Let him try. If you watch the video, in his narration, he clearly stated he punched the driver, the footage shows he actually hit the driver with a weapon, he only changed his story after he saw the video. His story was not what I saw.
I am annoyed here again that the lawyer expresses the accused's contrition, to be followed "again!" by the convicted making gestures which seem contrary to that!
Most "contrition" wuld be more fairly expressed as "my client is sorry he got caught".
Time in my view that these sort of gestures were immediately treated by magistrates or a judge as contempt at best, (and some of them might seem to get as far as perjury!), and the cocky sods hammered immediately with an extra penalty for them to be happy about!
