Anti gay Kansas lawmaker gets only 12 months of probation after kicking a male student in the balls. He was working as a substitute teacher when he went on a ranting tirade and chased the student around the room. I hope the parents sue the fuck out of the school AND him, and possible the state as well, if they don't kick him out and ban him.

I think in the U.K. this crime would be categorised as Assault occasioning Actual Bodily Harm or ABH, and which carries a custodial sentence of up to 5 years in prison.. He would definitely lose his job, and if it was deemed to be a homophobic hate crime it could rule him out of ever working in the education sector as a career in the future.
Ordering an adult to apologize is about as effective as...well, as effective as ordering a child to apologize. What a pathetic punishment. And it occurs to me that it's not very 'pro-life' for him to assault a child's genitals and possibly damage his ability to have kids.
