I THINK Newton Aycliffe attacker Dale Robinson should have received a sentence of a minimum of seven years (Echo, Apr 3).

Instead, he got two years and eight months – just a ‘tap on the hand’ for being naughty.

The people who made derogatory comments about the victims, including homophobic references, should write letters of apologies, but no doubt they have no consciences.
