Youths who choked student until he apologised for being gay walk free from court

Two youths who choked a student and forced him to apologise for being gay in a vile homophobic attack on the Tube have walked free from court.

Sunday was a good day for me as I left early on Saturday to attend Horse Meat Disco after party and what a night and then seeing Gabrille and Chic on Sunday just topped the weekend off for me.

  • Hope your OK thank god we all don’t think the same x

  • Canโ€™t see what someone sexuality has to do with anyone else

  • This really upset me
    I think itโ€™s disgusting that this happens to anyone
    And I just think that the lack of punishment handed down to these ignorant children is shocking
    How can anyone treat another human being like that I donโ€™t understand it
    I shanโ€™t put in writing what I would do to these people if I ever come across such disgusting behaviour!
    I hope that the guy is not put off going on with his daily life.
    Everyone should be able to live their life as they choose with no fear of threats or violence x

  • What the absolute F!!!!! How DARE these yobs do that to another human being. They can’t be named because of their age… They should be named and shamed and do custodial sentence then have lessons on how to treat people. Makes me so mad ๐Ÿ˜ก

  • This is disgusting! Society seems to be going backwards, not forwards! And what has anyoneโ€™s sexuality got to do with anyone else ๐Ÿ˜ก

  • A most unfortunate incident, but the punishment handed down was probably usual for this sort of case. And there was punishment, these two idiots have now got a criminal record which will not improve their chances of employment. Can only hope they’ve learnt their lesson and that the victim can get on with his life.

  • Happy international day against homophobia. Ffs this makes me rage. What an absolute insult to humanity

  • Find me the names and Iโ€™ll make them โ€œsorryโ€.

  • It’s not good enough a tougher sentence is needed!!!๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

  • Outrageous. These thugs need locking up. Had this been a racist attack would the judge still order โ€œeach to pay a ยฃ20 victim surcharge and ยฃ150 compensation โ€œ? No, I didnโ€™t think so either. ๐Ÿ˜ก

  • I would appeal against that court ruling

  • Bet they made there parents family friends proud bloody sick this world is no justice bring back capital punishment or simply hang them all wat scum deserve!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ค

  • So much for hate crime being taken more seriously ๐Ÿ™

  • Shame on our courts fine them etc this so wrong law must change and our law must be harder too makes me sick

  • TfL and police have big words but no action they are all talk. I donโ€™t suppose the magistrate will be prosecuted for encouraging homophobia and hate crime , they will be sat at home pleased with their expenses clueless as to the impact of attacks like this !๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

  • This is disgusting and makes me very sad ๐Ÿ˜”

  • I totally agree, education is the way to open peopleโ€™s minds to everything that is ok.
    Love is for everyoneโค๏ธ

  • What was the point in tracking them down. Going to court all for them to just walk away minus ยฃ200. Imo this isnโ€™t a win. Terrible.

  • Disgusting and shameful justice system we have.

  • How appalling – their behaviour is inexcusable!

  • Disgusting. How can that level of hate go unpunished.

  • Trumpism is infecting the entire Earth.

  • They didn’t walk free. They were caught, tried and then sentenced by a judge.
    Their behaviour was disgusting but the sentence they got isn’t unusual.
    The criminal justice system is crumbling under the Tories. There isn’t enough police to investigate every crime and if it’s investigated the sentences usually involve community service or a fine.
    There’s also very little victim support for anyone who has been subject to attacks like these.

  • Hopefully someone will find them and do the same to them. They deserve death.

  • Dreadful ! Karma will get them and they are probably secretly gay anyway. It’s astonishing anything like this can happen now , it’s 2018 ffs ! I think the guy that was attacked dealt with it incredibly well and dignified bless him xx
