  • Daniel Christie coward-punch victim: who's to blame?

    The death of 18-year-old one-punch victim Daniel Christie has intensified scrutiny on whether the Government's efforts to curb alcohol-fuelled violence have worked and what else can be done.

    The teenager's family switched off his life support last week, 11 days after he was knocked unconscious by a single punch in Kings Cross on New Year's Eve.

    David Penberthy, editor-in-chief, News Limited, makes the point that the case respresents a new generation of gutless thugs. In a recent blog he says, "A more appropriate term would be scumbag-fuelled violence, as the focus on alcohol lets the scumbags off the hook".
