Rebecca Bernard has 51 previous convictions for crimes including violence and threatening behaviour.
She led an all-girl gang that brought terror to their town and has been the subject of two Asbos for making her elderly neighbours’ lives a misery.
You might have thought that when the 23-year-old attacked two innocent men in a nightclub with a champagne bottle, a custodial sentence would be inevitable.
But she walked free from court after a judge decided she was a good mother to her three young childrenIn the latest drink-fuelled assault, Bernard smashed a bottle over one victim’s head then stabbed the other in the arm with its jagged neck.
A court heard she launched the attack because she believed, wrongly, that the men were laughing at her..
The article mentions that Bernard is mentally ill, but if she is so mentally ill that she beats men and abuses the elderly, how great can she be? And if a good mother gets off scott-free, what about good dads? Sadly, with our courts and the media, they probably believe there aren’t any. Their take? Most moms are princesses, all men are dicks.
