I am so disgusted with our justice system here in victoria. Two women charged with assaulting an injuring a Paramedic get of with community service. the said they were good mothers and had a traumatic childhood, if so why were they drunk and abusive when police were called to a house where drugs were being used, and sure lots of us were traumatised in our childhood but that does not give anyone the right to attack our first responders and wreck their lives. I just about give up with the way things are going.
A similar incident occurred where a young man kicked the head of a policeman, while he was on the ground. Let off! The same young man was arrested for something some weeks later. Our magistrates should hang their heads in shame!
Yet another incident in an outer suburb overnight. This time, not young people either.
“”TWO more paramedics have been bashed in a sickening attack at Caroline Springs train station after being called to help a man who had collapsed.
The paramedics — a man and woman — were punched, kicked and spat at by a man in his 60s who had collapsed at the station about 9.40 last night.
“The man was intoxicated and became abusive and threatened paramedics,” an Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman confirmed.””
