A violent Penge robber who stabbed a man in the leg while stealing his mobile phone has been sentenced to three years in a young offender institution.

Jonathon Gondora, 18, of Melbourne Court, Anerley Road, pleaded guilty at Croydon Crown Court to robbery and unlawful wounding.

On August 28 Gondora robbed a 17-year-old boy of a Samsung Galaxy mobile phone, ring and Gucci belt in Palace Square, Crystal Palace, stabbing him twice in the leg as he did so.

The victim staggered to Crystal Palace train station where he was given first aid and taken to Kings College Hospital.

Officers identified Gondora through witness descriptions and he was arrested on September 3.

Gondora denied the offence but changed his plea prior to a jury being sworn in.

Yet again our judicial system has gone mad! He robs and then stabs someone, and is given a paltry sentence meaning he'll be out in 18 months. in which time he'll have just made better connections with other wannabe gangsters instead of being punished and rehabilitated.

As I keep saying though, the British Sheeple voted for this....

Well please do enlighten us all on how you come to that conclusion. Also please do tell us who you think people should of voted for.

I wonder who.

I also think the 3 year sentence for a violent robbery is very light by the way.

I probably should have elaborated . As I touched upon in the first post, it's not just the short sentence that is appalling but the prison service itself. It doesn't rehabilitate. This guy will spend 18months inside and probably come out worse!

The Lib-Lab-Con parties are more or less the same party, and ALL soft on crime.
UKIP claim to be tough on crime but unfortunately have economic policies that make Maggie Thatcher look like Mary Poppins, such as scrapping PAYE and making everyone self-employed, privatising virtually the entire public sector, and getting us out the EU only to make us a 51st US state...

Personally at present I can't see much of an alternative and may end up falling into the none of the above box. Given that most elections now have turnouts of 30% or less, Im probably not the only one...

However whether you like them or not, UKIP are getting increasingly popular as a consequence of the Lib-Lab-Con's incompetence and ignorance. Simply many people see UKIP as the lesser of the two evils.

Totally agree with your above comment the justice system is a joke and unfortunately the next time we see this guys face will probably be due to an actual murder!

These types of people always use weapons as they are cowards and its the only thing they know.

Hes only 18 ??? Rough for 18 I tell ya !
The sentence seems a tad light .... did he stab the poor lad with a needle or what ? ..... The judge needs to be robbed at knife point and that way will see how light this sentence is.

The 3 main political parties are like waiting at 3 seperate doors .... you walk through the door of the party you choose, only to be lead into the very same room all party choices are lead to. Government doesn't run any part of any country, corporations run the government and then the government inflict what the corporations want !
The whole system is rigged and in need of a revolution. Sounds harsh but the reality is that we are just sheep being herded to death at a far quicker rate than we should be !
