I'm with you. Let society know who they're dealing with. They want to commit adult crimes, they should be treated like adults.

My guess is that the attackers felt empowered, knowing that their prey were very likely unarmed.
Likely so.

Think Bernie Goetz attackers felt so bold when he produced his .38 those years back?

Even a 5 shot revolver in the hands of either of those two women could have stood off the beating they suffered.

They are being treat like adults, they have been quickly arrested, interviewed under caution and charged, and they will now appear before the Magistrates before the case is referred to the Crown Court, which may well be the Central Criminal Courts (The Old Bailey).

The Court also has the power to decide whether naming a youth offender is in the public interest, so they may well be named.

As for the offences, Section 20 GBH carries a maximum sentence of 5 years, whilst the street robbery offence carres 4 years.

The Court will examine all the mitigating and aggravating coircumstances and as has already pointed out the Courts legally have to impose higher sentences in relation to homophobic and transexual hate crimes.

The sentence each individual receives will be down to the part they played in the crimes, and it's all recorded on the bus CCTV system for the Jury to see.

This is a serious crimes, and will be treated as such.

Good to know - thanks for educating me. Please understand our responses deal with what happens here in the states, which is different than how you handle it in the U.K., apparently.

I'm also wondering if those attackers were Muslims or looked like they could be Muslim. That is a high probability in Londonistan.

The US has a different legal system, however such crimes are serious in both countries, and I would expect a significant sentence if found guilty.
