UK: Teenagers who violently abuse disabled boy walk free with community service order

Posted 12/10-10 at 23.54

Three boys tortured a 17 year-old with learning difficulties for three days and recorded his ordeal on their mobile phones. They told police they carried out the attacks because they were bored.

The boy who was attacked has moved to another part of the country, but his abusers are back on the streets after a judge handed out community service orders and three-month curfews instead of sending them to prison.


Editorial comment: If you are easily upset, we don't recommend you read the full story. What the young man had to endure was truly horrendous. The failure to put these bullies behind bars sends all the wrong messages to those who think that disabled people are fair game.
