Easy to be sorry afterwards but he has ruined someone's life here, and the police had to appeal for information, he wasn't so sorry that he handed himself in as soon as he did it. I agree he will be out in half the time, should have been longer. He could easily have killed the person he attacked.

VoiceofDaPort Jones pleaded guilty to his offence and was quite rightly punished by a court of law. Would you not consider Vaughan of also committing a sick crime? Breaking into someone's home in the middle of the night when they are asleep in bed and then leaving them for dead is horrific. If most people consider vigilante justice to be acceptable then we live in a very depraved society. Vaughan is a violent criminal not a hero! He only pleaded guilty because he was looking at a 12 year sentence, it certainly wasn't out of remorse.

I certainly don't condone vigilante justice, as was mentioned in my original comment (Deleted by the Argus) and it's right that he has received a custodial sentence, as should anyone for at attacking someone to that degree.

I also don't think he's a hero for what he did and no where in my original comment did I imply this, only that I thought he should have received a shorter sentence.
