UNPROVOKED ATTACKS ON INNOCENT VICTIMS
Victorian justice, part one:
A driver who rammed a speed camera car when he realised he had been snapped speeding was today given a one-year jail term ... “Your offending behaviour in this case was outrageous. It involved you using the vehicle as a weapon for an unprovoked attack on an innocent victim,” Judge Lawson said.
Victorian justice, part two:
A teenage girl who admitted punching her newborn son to death was sentenced today to a three-year good behaviour bond ... Justice Bernard Bongiorno told her: “I am not going to send you to jail”.
