Attacks on our OAPs a disgrace

Surely it is time to designate attacking the elderly as a special offence with very severe penalties?

I know that I speak for all right-minded people in stating that attacks on the elderly in their homes (or elsewhere) is an affront to humanity.

The psychological effect of these horrific attacks is amplified when aged people live in isolated homes.

A society is judged on how it treats its elderly citizens. By this standard, we should hang our heads in shame.
