The boy got charged, which is fair. Assault is assault. Both are in the wrong
*Edit* accidentally deleted Pem's name, oops
The boy egged a politician... Sure he should be charged with assault... But considering Fraser Anning's comments were disgusting, you can't blame him. Egg boy is a hero in my books. Haha
In saying that, I once called John Howard (Old prime minister of Australia) a "royal wanker" years ago when I met him, felt good. No repercussions.
...In saying that, hitting a minor is also illegal... It's one thing to whack someone in self defense, but to do it multiple times? To someone deemed a child in the eyes of the law? And then go on record later by stating that his mother should have done the same thing a long time ago is also crossing a line.
The petition to kick Fraser Anning out of Government has reached almost 1.3~ million, the largest petition in Australian history. (In retrospect our population is only 24~ million, so it's significant.)
They were all in the wrong. Yes, Fraser's comments were disgusting, but that doesn't give the right for someone to smash an egg on his head. The boy of course didn't deserve to be beaten, that was excessive. Why does smashing an egg on someone's head make him a hero? And good for you?
I know hitting a minor is illegal, he should be punished for that, but assaulting someone is also illegal.
I do feel sorry for the boy, and yes, the politician is a shitty person, I do believe that is something we can agree on.
Wowie, must be one of the most hated guys in Australia
