Four and a half years for sex attacker, poor thing got a bruise......... shame his victim didn't finish him off.

Going through the attack and then court, it's an insult.

He was caught on CCTV in Sheffield city centre hiding behind walls and watching lone women after spending the afternoon and evening drinking in town.

At around midnight, he started following a 21-year-old woman as she made her way home from work and tracked her through the streets for over a mile.

Horrible for the girl, but should've finished him off? Really?

Two wrongs don't make a .....?

Clue: opposite of left. Starts with "r".

Nothing can make it right, ever.

He decided that when he spent the day choosing his victim.

And absolutely Oak he didn't pick someone vulnerable enough this time but when he's back out I wouldn't want to come across him.

Ohh Oak whoosh blush that's accidental, bad choice of words on my part.

Rainbow, I have a feeling Oak didn't mean what you think...

Four and a half years not enough. Probably be out in two.

Oh, no! I know what you meant and was replying to what you said.

I just hate the belligerence of "this person is a hideous criminal, and thus deserves to die". Hideous criminal - yes. Deserves to die - no. Nor does the girl deserve to be a murderer - even in self defense.

Why doesn't he deserve to die though? If she had killed him that's one less nasty dirty sex attacker
To hurt some other female, who might not be as fortunate as this young woman to get away alive.
