The political world has become increasingly hostile and violent in recent months. The political divide between ideologies has been seen all around the world, and especially in America.
Recently, a popular politician was beaten to a pulp by a young man. The attack left him in need of some serious hospital care and surgery. He was practically unrecognizable when the first photos emerged from his hospital room.
According to The Sun, the former US Ambassador for Britain during 9/11, top envoy Sir Christopher Meyer, was brutally attacked. The incident occurred as he walked on the Tube platform before two teenagers knocked him unconscious and began bludgeoning him.
"Britain’s ex-US ambassador also suffered torn ligaments in his hand and a swollen eye, chin, and nose. His family released a photo of him lying blood-soaked at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, West London. Docs were yesterday preparing to operate on his hand and mouth. The dad of four was set upon around 3 pm on Wednesday at central London’s Victoria Station," reported The Sun.
Now, the teen who is accused of attacking him is being spared jail time. Many were shocked by his sentencing.
"District Judge Wright said the attack clearly passed the custody threshold, but the boy's good character and remorse meant she did not have to pass a custodial sentence. Handing him a 12-month intensive referral order she added: 'You have been very fortunate today.' He was also told to pay £500 in compensation," according to The Sun.
Meyer serves as Britain's U.S. Ambassador from 1997-2003. He was also the Primes Minister's Press Secretary from 1994-1996. Please join us in praying for his swift recovery.
