A boy of 12 was hauled before a court after being charged with assault for throwing a cocktail sausage at an elderly man. The case has cost thousands already. Are cases like this a waste of court time and money?

  • This boy is clearly a yob for throwing something at an elderly man. The court and police will hopefully have scared him into better behaviour making it neither a waste of time nor money - 244 votes
