Pc Christopher Collins was kneeling down arresting one of a group in Mansel Park, Millbrook, when Stuart Skeats took a running kick and struck in the head.So, he’s attacked two policemen. Does he have an excuse?
The city crown court heard Skeats ran off but as he was being detained by Pc Daniel Robinson he “jump-kicked” him, injuring a knee ligament.
In interview, the 18-year-old said he was drunk having knocked back two two-litre bottles of cider and 12 bottles of lager and his recollection of what happened was vague.Really? You don’t think that sort of thing sticks in your mind?
Skeats, of Oakridge Road, Southampton, admitted two charges of causing actual bodily harm.For that, he got 16 weeks jail. At least, that’s what he was sentenced to, we all know he’ll serve far, far less...
And at least he was sent to jail. Believe it or not, you can partially blind a man whose only 'offence' is to tell you not to abuse your girlfriend and get...nothing. Zip. Nada.
Those riots sure are getting harder and harder to explain, aren’t they?
