Park attacker should be in prison

Editor: Re: Probation given for Douglas Park attack (The Times, Aug. 14).

I don’t know what is more disturbing — this vicious cowardly attack on these defenceless seniors, one of whom is a woman — or the fact this gentleman is well known to police and the court.

What is with sentencing this pillar of society to one year of probation? Isn’t he already on probation from his last cowardly act?

Let’s just hope this gentleman gets sent to prison, where he belongs, before he kills somebody.
