Ummm, no. The attack on the Miami homeless man by the 'cannibal' was extremely horrific. Tonight's Red Wedding scene in 'Game Of Thrones' is extremely horrific.
This is just a minor incident of assault. It wouldn't say, attract more than a fine or suspended sentence if it happened in the street to someone else...
Mind you, there's a lot of it about...
Norman Kelly, who was outside courtroom eight at the time of the incident, described how the drama unfolded.
The 53-year-old construction worker from Bevendean, Brighton, said: “I was standing outside the court when suddenly people rushed out.
“Someone yelled, ‘The magistrate has just been attacked’.
“I understood the man flew at the magistrate. He had maybe been between 8ft and 10ft away from him before then and he apparently just launched at him. The woman who was in the dock came out of court in hysterics but the man who people said attacked the magistrate did not come out.”And what was this one all about?
Mr Kelly, who was at court supporting a friend, had been sitting in the public gallery moments earlier. He said the case was about council tax non-payment. He claimed the man accused of attacking the magistrate – who was chairing a bench of three – was sitting with the accused woman.
He said: “From my perspective it looked as though she had some difficulties with hearing and he was helping her. He was sitting next to her but he was told not to speak and it kicked off.”Lovely!
A Sussex Police spokesman said: “A 50-year-old man from Brighton was arrested on suspicion of battery on Thursday after he allegedly attacked a magistrate and security staff at Brighton Magistrates’ Court.”There's not a lot of sympathy for the magistrate in the comments....
