Spit­ting at cops isn’t on

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

I WOULD like to re­ply to “Dave, Bushy Beach” ( TB, July 21), who states that to spit on po­lice should not be re­garded as a “se­ri­ous as­sault”.

I re­gard be­ing spat on as far more se­ri­ous than be­ing punched or kicked. Do you re­ally think that young po­lice re­cruits are go­ing to join up if it is le­gal for the public to spit on them as they walk past?

What weirdo part of the world were you born in mate?

KEN KNUTH,

Range­wood.
