Sorry - The kid asked for it. I could see Gary Johnson getting maybe 6 months for over-reacting but that's it. The kid was adrenalined up - What, the dad couldn't be adrenalined up too? He had just stood by while his son lost a fight, I'm sure the adrenaline was coursing through his veins, too.

The little punk shouldn't have challenged him. He got what he deserved. This is an outrage.

Oh please, the boy probably deserved it. Children are a nightmare at times! At sixteen he's more than responsible IMO.

If somebody hit my kid I would also beat them like that. The father taught the little brat some respect.... Good work and well done to him.

Kids are like gardens. They need a good digging now and again to keep them in check.

Why the outrage, it was a fair fight. I think the old guy did well against such a strong and youthful opponent. This proves George Osborne is right to raise the retirement age.

Good hope he rots .- pat , worcs....Really? You really do need to get around much more. The only difference between what is happening here and what happens every single day in every single school, army barracks, in the alley behind the pub and on every council estate, is that this was on video. This is what it's like to be a boy growing up and it stops when you learn how to handle yourself. Well, it did with me. Yep, it's real good fun being a man, no worrying about boob size and depth of tan for us.

I didn't realize so many people here were bleeding heart liberal cowards. That kid deserved every punch he got. Get over it already.
