WHAT justice system?

"...Isaiah Tai, a 21-year-old orchard worker, was this morning sentenced to two years and 10 months' prison after earlier pleading guilty to Mr Vercoe's manslaughter.

Mr Vercoe, 36, an Environment Bay of Plenty regional councillor and principal of Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Te Rotoiti, was killed after Tai attacked him outside a Whakatane bar on November 22 last year..."

Well goodness me- he must have been REALLY sorry!

Sorry he got caught kicking the deceased in the head while he was down- probably would have gotten away with home detention...
