A playground yob who set fire to a schoolgirl cancer victim's hair was yesterday ordered to pay her £200 compensation. The girl of 11 ran screaming to staff after the 14-year-old boy lit her hair, which had grown back after chemotherapy, with a cigarette lighter.

The girl, who had just returned to school after battling her illness, beat out the fire with her hands but her hair was badly singed. The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, admitted causing actual bodily harm. The boy was ordered to attend sessions with a youth offending team. He and his family will pay £200 to the girl and £60 prosecution costs.

Should this little boy who burned off a cancer victim`s newly regrown hair have gotten more of a punishment than this?

If someone burned off my hair, especially if I just grew it back, I would break my foot up their ass!
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/13/05 - 6:41:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's terrible!
He should be in jail.

See, this is what happens when all you f**kin tree huggers get your way and corporal punishment is abolished. Personally, I think he should get ten lashes in the town centre and his head shaved. His parents should also get ten lashes for failing in their duty to bring up a child who wasn't a piece of sh*t.

Brunnen! You probably know ... what does 'yob' mean? I see it all the time in stories from the UK. I'm assuming it's some kind of insult but does it have an exact definition? I like that word!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 3/27/05 - 11:15:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
What a sick bastard! Kick him in the balls!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 3/27/05 - 11:17:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Someone should shave that kid bald and let his hair grow back and see how it feels. Send him back to school that way.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 3/27/05 - 11:58:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
You can't really arrest him for it. He deserves worse, beaten the sh*t out of.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 3/28/05 - 12:03:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
What a twisted kid. I would have demanded more punishment if he has burnt off my hair after I had just regrown it!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 3/28/05 - 12:25:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Holy frickin crap. My mom is going through chemo right now and if some one lit her hair on fire after it finally grows back, I would scalp them, eyelid to nape of his f*ckin neck...see how they recover from that.

Im PISSED that this actually happend to a poor little girl, I feel like finding that kid and seriously makeing him regret it.

Yes. Having his parents pay a little doesn't help him learn at all. I'm usually not for "eye for an eye" type stuff, but having him shave his head (or, if that wouldn't embarrass him, make him wear something stupid) would definitely teach him how he made this girl feel.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:22:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hopefully that little girl has an older brother who will beat the crap out of that little piece of caca and maybe set his hair on fire.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:27:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Assault. Should spend a week or so in jail.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:29:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
What a dickhead
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:30:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
...and be everybody's girl during that week
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:31:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not really. He's 14, there may still be hope for him...
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:33:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Fry the little bastard.

ANy 14 year old who would set fire to another human being needs some serious punishment. Reform school, followed by about 30 years in the big house.

Little Focker.

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 4:38:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
that is so sick, he should be punishised more then that
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 6:40:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
He probably suffers from ADHD...
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/8/05 - 6:43:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
the family, if they were smart, would take the case to a civil court and sue for the girls (real or fake) emotional damage and demand the boy go to jail due to intent to harm, and assult
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 4/11/05 - 4:46:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
They should shave his hair off..and I would hope that both he and his family get counseling.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 4/11/05 - 8:44:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
They could laser his hair off so it never grows back. That seems like a more reasonable punishment.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 4/11/05 - 10:46:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Main, burning off ANYBODY'S hair is dangerous, and emotionally bad.

Doing it to a kid who has ALREADY been through much is disgusting. I'd like to do a few things to the kid that did this.

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 4/11/05 - 10:47:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
Definitely. That is sick. He needs to be expelled from school, arrested, tried like an adult, and locked up in prison for the rest of his life.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/15/05 - 6:36:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
He should rot in jail for awhile at least...
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/15/05 - 6:47:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Brunnen, I COMPLETELY AGREE. Couldn't have said it better myself
