Here’s a clever comment from Rex Mundi on the story of a newspaper deliveryman being viciously attacked by a number of drunk policemen. The policemen were charged, and one of them “has been given a conditional sentence without jail time after pleading guilty” today. (The others’ trials are not complete yet)

His comment is:

So does this mean that off-duty newspaper deliverymen may anticipate no jail time if they get drunk and assault an off-duty police officer?
