Sydney teens charged over attack on Canadian wheelchair-user
Wed Mar 10, 7:01 PM
SYDNEY (AFP) - Two Australian teenagers have been charged over a vicious attack on a disabled Canadian tourist who was knocked out of his wheelchair and battered with a metal bar, police said on Thursday.
The two, aged 15 and 16, were both charged with grievous bodily harm and robbery armed with an offensive weapon following Tuesday's incident, which has made headlines in the victim's home country.
The 35-year-old man is in hospital with head injuries after the assault at a Sydney suburban train station, which was captured by security cameras.
The man, who does not want to be named, was punched in the face as he entered a lift, then stamped on and hit with a metal bar ripped off his wheelchair, reports said.
"It's a cowardly, horrendous, horrific thing that they've done," his girlfriend told local media earlier.
"It makes me sick to the stomach to think he came out here for me and he's ended up in a hospital, and to think that he could have died."
The younger teenager was due to appear at children's court later, while the other suspect was refused bail on Wednesday.

Despite their police's best efforts, their crime rate keeps going up and up...
One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.
Aren't guns banned in this country? Hmmm......interesting, how's that gun ban working for ya?
I've been told you can't even hit an invader, by a reliable resident/citizen of WA.
The place is certainly not "gang" free. It has the same stuff we have; drug gangs and ethnic gangs. It has troubled youth, especially within the very large first generation immigrant community when the kids aren't quite sure who and what they are.
Still, on the whole it is one of the safer places in the world, perhaps safer than most of the US.
It would be interesting to see side by side the incident rate for various serious crimes in both our countries. I don't think we will look good in comparison.
The level of derangement increases...

How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.
