It is notable that the judge condemned the victim‘s behaviour as “appalling”.
Note also that the defendant in this case acted as a man who knew a little about life with a disability because his sister has one.
It’s past time people stood up for the disabled, not because they have a friend in the same situation but because, even though they don’t have such a contact, they know it is wrong.
Then we’ll have made some progress against the hateful propaganda spewed by members of the Conservative Parasites and their puppy press.
A man who knocked out an “appalling” clubber with a single punch after witnessing him spit drinks at a disabled woman has been spared jail.
Lewis Drabble followed the 22-year-old man out of a club and delivered a “haymaker” to the back of his head after becoming enraged at the reveller’s behaviour.
The pair had been in the Ritz in Whitworth Street, Manchester, and Manchester Crown Court heard how the attack came moments after the victim and his friend spat drinks over a girl in a wheelchair.
Amanda Johnson, defending Drabble, a 23-year-old kitchen fitter of Market Street, Hyde, told his Manchester Crown Court sentencing he had been incensed by the abuse because his girlfriend’s sister also had a disability.
Sentencing Drabble [who admitted causing the man GBH], Judge [Martin] Steiger said the victim’s behaviour was ‘appalling’.
He added that Drabble’s ‘intemperate’ behaviour could not be ‘excused’, but said an 18 month community order, with 240 hours unpaid work, and £1,000 compensation order to the victim, was an ‘appropriate’ resolution.
