An eye for an eye seems appropriate in this case

I hate this sort of feral scum

Four teenagers will appear in court today charged in relation to the Boxing Day attack and robbery of a German couple in Whakatane.

Three males, aged 14, 17 and 18 and a 15-year-old female have been charged with aggravated robbery and will appear in the Whakatane District Court, police said.

All accused were from the Bay of Plenty.

Police were still looking for a fifth youth who was also believed to have been involved in the incident.

The couple, a 19-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman – were attacked in their tent early yesterday morning.

The man lost teeth and suffered cuts and bruises and the woman suffered facial and arm injuries, including fractures.

Like a pack of rabid dogs.  Disgusting.  

The pair were camping near a skatepark at the intersection of McAllister and Beach streets in Whakatane when they were woken.

They managed to escape their attackers and knocked at a nearby house for help. A member of the public who heard screams also contacted police.

When officers arrived they found the robbers ransacking the tent.

They fled, but a police dog tracked them to a river, where two people were arrested. Two others were arrested a short time later.

Police said the Whakatane police station had received an “overwhelming” number of calls offering donations and accommodation for the couple.

Police asked people to email messages of support to [email protected] to free up the station telephone line.

How many time does this happen to undo all the good the Hobbit movies have done for New Zealand?  If it was up to me, I’d make examples of these ratbags.
