1) if you don’t want to be beaten up, then don’t start on people’s girlfriends;
2) if you ignore this advice, then don’t whine too much about the well-deserved kicking you get;
3) while it’s completely unfair that the donor of said well-deserved kicking should get treated more lightly by the courts if he’s a doctor than if he isn’t, that largely reflects the unreasonable harshness with which the courts tend to treat most people who dole out violence to cunts who deserve it. Particularly when all it involves is being knocked out and then whining a lot about “ooh, the terrible changes it’s made to my personality” in order to get compo.
4) if you’ve been convicted of a serious crime yourself but still allowed to take a responsible professional job, it’s really, really, really unbecoming of you to suggest that said doctor should lose his.
[also, while it's technically true that knocking someone unconscious for a few hours counts as 'beating them into a coma', it's grossly misleading in the context of a press article, given that the public understanding of a coma is something non-trivial that lasts for ages...]
[personal interest: have never knocked anyone out; have been knocked out for drunkenly behaving like a twat; didn't whine about it to claim compo or try and get the bloke in question thrown in jail, because am not an utter twat when sober]
