Public Violence^W^WSport

Watching the news this evening we inadvisably didn't skip past the sports news. So we were treated to a montage of so-called sports people punching and elbowing each other on the field.


The footage was somewhat reminiscent of the CCTV footage that is sometimes shown on the news after there has been a fight or bashing at a pub or club.

A major difference though, is that news of a bashing at a pub or club is usually followed with details of someone being arrested and some time later of them being convicted and going to jail.

Why are footy players that display this behaviour in front of thousands of people not arrested, sentenced and sent to jail? It'll stop this ridiculous behaviour in its tracks, very quickly and send a very strong message to those who feel beating someone into a hospital is acceptable.

Public outrage? Go on...
