Another Bruce Emery?

Over the weekend the blogosphere has seen a number of excellent posts on child-killer Bruce Emery's sentencing. Meanwhile, New Zealand saw another Emery-style incident. In New Plymouth, a group of teenagers engaged in the age-old prank of ringing someone's doorbell then running away. The resident responded by chasing them to a local school and beating them unconscious. All three ended up in hospital and two are likely to need surgery. So, will the child-beater get the same lenient treatment that Emery got?

Police are seeking a male Maori with "bouffy" hair aged 17 to 20 years old, of medium build, who was wearing a white singlet, long pants and black and white shoes.
Somehow, I think not...
