A teenage thug who stamped on the head of a schoolboy in a classroom has been told to...Leave and report immediately to Borstal?
The 14-year-old appeared at Basildon Youth Court yesterday after taking part in a gang attack on a train before the incident at school.
The boy, who lives in the Southend borough but cannot be identified for legal reasons, admitted two counts of assault following incidents on September 7 and January 22.Not an isolated incident, then? It never is, is it?
Stuart Cowen, prosecuting, said the incident in the classroom saw him force a pupil to the floor and begin kicking him.
Mr Cowen said: “He began kicking him and could be heard shouting ‘if you chat **** about me, you get banged’ whilst the victim was holding up his arms trying to block him.
“He then lifted his foot and with considerable force slammed it down onto his face.
“A teacher managed to get a hold of him and take him to the far corner where he continued to shout ‘he chatted **** about me, he’s gonna get banged’.Note, this is Essex. Not Compton, LA.
Lorna McLeod, mitigating, told the court the 14-year-old was with a carer and had been improving.Christ! What was he like before?!?
“He is very remorseful.”*rolls eyes*
Elizabeth Hunter, chairman of the bench, said the assaults were “nasty incidents” and handed the boy a six month referral order, meaning he must see a panel to help him not re-offend again.The only surprise here is that Lenient Leigh wasn't involved...
