Proper punishment for assault: Is 28 months in prison a proper punishment for knocking a young boy unconscious for actions that the perpetrator found offensive?
  • 28 months is a proper punishment for knocking a young boy unconscious for actions that the perpetrator found offensive.

    28 months is a proper punishment for knocking a young boy unconscious for actions that the perpetrator found offensive. This only applies if it is a first-time offense and the court finds that the perpetrator is likely to reform and not be a repeat offender. If other circumstances apply or the perpetrator has a violent history, additional time should be added to his sentence.

  • No, I don`t think so.

    Is there a procedure for that or do we have to hope people vote him out? There should be some sort of review process somewhere along the line. I bet the judge still sees it as bad decisions/boys will be boys. A youthful mistake rather than a predator whose behavior will only be emboldened by this.

  • It is not enough.

    28 months in prison is not enough for such a violent act. The person who did this likely has a propensity for violence. There should be a long sentence for this person so that others know that the behavior is not acceptable. The person responsible should be off the streets for a long time so that it doesn't happen to anyone else.

  • No, 28 months is not an appropriate punishment for physical assault.

    No, 28 months is not an appropriate punishment for physical assault, even if the young boy that was hit did offend the perpetrator. All individuals,especially children, should be able to safely voice their opinions without fear of retribution by offended parties. The perpetrator should face more time in prison than 28 months.
