The mother of a thug who killed an autistic man dismissed his crime as ‘no big deal’ last night.

In a display of callous indifference, Sherron O’Hagan said she did not know ‘what all the fuss was about’.

Her son Lewis Gill killed Andrew Young with a single punch in an unprovoked attack captured on CCTV [Ed: Video and more on the attack here].

He was given just four years but a public outcry may lead to a longer sentence.

The Attorney General says he will examine whether the jail term was too short.

Dominic Grieve’s office was deluged with more than 110 complaints within hours of the case becoming public.

Mr Young’s mother Pamela has dismissed the sentence as an ‘absolute joke’–Gill could even be free within two years.

But Mrs O’Hagan, speaking from her home in Sutton, South London, yesterday insisted her son was a ‘good kid’.

The 41-year-old mother of three told the Mail: ‘It was just an accident. It’s not a big deal. This will all be forgotten tomorrow. He’s my son, what do you want me to say? He didn’t mean to kill him and that’s that.’

Mrs O’Hagan, who was not married to Gill’s father Richard McKenzie, added: ‘This story will be the lining of chips tomorrow. I just don’t understand what all the fuss is about.’

Gill, a convicted robber, punched 40-year-old Mr Young to the ground on a busy Bournemouth street on November 6 last year.

Shocking CCTV footage shows him calmly walking forward to deliver the deadly punch after Mr Young reprimanded his friend for cycling on the pavement.

Mr Young, who had Asperger’s and the mental age of a 14-year-old, fell back and cracked his head on the pavement.

He died the next day with his 71-year-old mother at his bedside.

Gill, 20, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to four-and-a-half years by Judge Keith Cutler at Salisbury Crown Court.

With half his sentence served on licence, and allowing for time already served, he could be out in just two years.

The sentence was condemned by Victims’ Commissioner Baroness Newlove, whose husband Garry was killed by a gang vandalising his car.

‘I’m appalled by this disgraceful act of violence–my thoughts go out to the victim’s family and friends at this time,’ she said.

‘It’s entirely right that the sentence will be reviewed for this shocking crime.

‘I know how traumatic it is to go through the courts as a victim–when you are already so hurt and vulnerable. That’s why I urge everyone involved in this case to put victims first in the pursuit of justice.’

The Young family’s MP, Tobias Ellwood, welcomed Mr Grieve’s review as well. ‘It would be wrong for me to make a judgment about how long the sentence ought to be, it is not the role of an MP to do that,’ he said.

‘But the message needs to go out that this kind of behaviour should not be tolerated. I would be the first to advocate people standing up and speaking out when they see wrongdoing in their community and that is one of the reasons that a sentence like this is totally out of line.’

Mr Grieve has until March 21 to decide whether he thinks the sentence was too soft.

If–as seems likely–he does, the case will go to the Court of Appeal where three senior judges could lengthen it.

The Daily Mail website was also deluged with criticism of the sentencing judge, Keith Cutler, who decided Gill did not intend to cause ‘grievous harm’.

One wrote that it was a ‘sad day for justice’ and another demanded that ‘criminal friendly judges’ should be held accountable to the public and another

One reader commented: ‘The man is clearly dangerous and violent. Even if he didn’t intend to cause death he punched someone who was clearly no threat to him and who made no threatening gestures of violence back.

‘Isn’t it about time the people were heard? These lenient sentences are harmful to the decent members of society.’

A statement issued on behalf of the Young family said: ‘When we first heard that Gill was given a four year sentence we thought it was too short and expected him to get more than that. It’s ridiculous. He (Gill) didn’t mean to kill him so a life sentence would have been extreme but he deserves more than what he was given.

‘Looking at his criminal record he is obviously a trouble maker and we were hoping he would get about seven or eight years.

‘A sentence so short might mean that he could do something else dangerous in the future.’

But Judge stays silent over short sentence

The judge who sent Lewis Gill to prison for just four years did not respond to criticism of what has been called an ‘extremely lenient’ sentence.

Keith Cutler, 63, refused to discuss the case yesterday at Winchester Crown Court where he spent the day hearing a trial into an alleged conspiracy to commit blackmail.

The Mail was told by a court usher: ‘He has refused to talk about the case.’

The judge has however previously spoken about his approach to sentencing.

He has said in an interview: ‘Every offence has its different features, every mitigation has its own strengths and all those elements are brought into sentencing.’

He added: ‘Some cases get to you. When I come out of court, I say “That’s it. I’ve made my decision. If I am wrong the Court of Appeal will deal with it”.’

The father of two, who is a lay canon at Salisbury Cathedral, has also defended his sometimes controversial approach to the legal process.

This was most notable in his handling of the inquest into the shooting of Mark Duggan, where he held a 20-second silence to commemorate the gangster’s death.

The judge admits that he enjoys having the power to show leniency but he reacted angrily to ministerial criticism of ‘soft’ sentencing back in 2006 when he was secretary of the Council of Circuit Judges.

In October 2004, he handed teenager Louis Moroncini an 18-month supervision order for striking Beverley Brennan round the head with a 4ft wooden pole during a robbery.

Judge Cutler told the defendant: ‘You know, and I know, that you richly deserve custody and you would have got three years. But you must know that if you fail me and go wrong on this order, you will be back before the courts.’

After the hearing, nursery nurse Mrs Brennan said: ‘When the judge was passing the sentence, I had to leave the courtroom because I started having a panic attack.

‘I know he’s got a curfew, but I’ll still have that worry that he could go out.’

In September 2004, Abdel Atif Gholam, 29, an Afghan refugee who had no licence or insurance when he veered on to the wrong side of the road and killed a motorcyclist, was jailed by Judge Cutler for just two years.

The judge lives in a sprawling six-bedroom detached house in the heart of the English countryside.

Situated off a quiet lane, the £1million property offers picturesque views and has a well-tended garden packed with tall trees and ancient woodland.

    “This will all be forgotten tomorrow”

    And that’s the sad truth, because the British media will bury it.

    “He didn’t mean to kill him and that’s that.”

    Well, that’s why there’s such a thing as second degree murder.

    “Mental age of a 14 year old”

    Isn’t that the typical black anyway?

    “The judge lives in a sprawling six-bedroom detached house in the heart of the English countryside….a million pounds”

    For me but not for thee.

    • William_JD

      That mental age was ascribed to the victim.

    • Erasmus

      This kid’s mom really does not see what the big deal is about murdering someone else.

      I used to think people who said they were animals were only kidding. Now I see they were speaking the truth. Mrs. O’Hagan is an animal and should be treated as such.

  • LovelyNordicHeidi

    Her son Lewis Gill killed Andrew Young with a single punch in an unprovoked attack captured on CCTV [Ed: Video and more on the attack here].

    Expect more “unprovoked attacks.” They are provoking us to start an ethnic war.

    • dd121

      They can’t provoke us into starting it, they already have. Whites just need to wake up and see that we’re losing.

      • LovelyNordicHeidi

        Although they have already declared war to the entire White race, Whites just need to reciprocate that declaration so that the real show can finally begin.

      • We aren’t even remotely losing. We just haven’t started fighting back yet. When we do, may God have mercy on them because our people will not.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          I sure as hell won’t, when that day comes these thugs are not the only ones who are going to die, anyone else who enables them will die with them, even their families will be eliminated.

    • The Verdict of History

      Someone ought to smack her upside the head…

      … better yet… straight in the teeth.


    • William_JD

      This is what bothers me when people look at race and crime stats. No one ever crunches the numbers properly by looking at unprovoked attacks by strangers. That’s what people care about, and that’s where the huge racial violence imbalance lies.

  • capnmorgan5150

    You can murder someone and only get 4.5 years? That’s outrageous!

    • Magician

      Realistically, 2 years…. all feminists and liberals in UK will demand that it gets reduced to 2 years.

      • foundingstockcracker

        Anything more than that would make him a leftie martyr.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Only if you’re non White

  • Whitetrashgang

    The same thing should happen to her or her son in prison and see if it is a big deal then. Stupid people,never amount to anything ever.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Or to the son of the judge who lives in the posh mansion, thoroughly isolated from the “diversity” he has such sympathy for.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    If killing someone is “no big deal”, then assuredly this woman should have no deal with someone killing her son. No biggie. Let’s hope it happens in prison.

    • JDInSanD

      I wonder if it would be no big deal to her if someone called her an n-word?

      • Conrad

        “Oh, I’m so horrified. I just can’t go on living like this. It’s the end of the world. I just can’t work anymore. I have to go on welfare. Somebody get me an Obama phone & an EBT card.

      • Texan1st

        Doing so would get them 25-to-Life in this judge’s courtroom.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      It would still be no big deal if this thing and it’s demonic mother are hung or beheaded too at the same time.

  • Biff_Maliboo

    Welp, I guess that’s the diversity they’ve been angling for.

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    Wow, Britain is really sinking fast. The other day i was watching this TED talk featuring some British guy who wanted to end poverty in Africa by printing more money. Is there too much fluoride in the drinking water over there or what?

    • Katherine McChesney

      Another liberal White just like the liberal Whites who were angered over the killing of prison-bound thug Trayvon Martin.

      • Daniel Schmuhl

        I’m just noticing a lot of Brits these days going full libtard.

        • Romulus


          • Daniel Schmuhl

            A combination of liberal and retard.

          • Romulus

            Yes,of course. I prefer retard. It packs more deficiency.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Mail Online will censor remarks that are truthful about blacks because the Brits will flag and report them as racist. But, I’ve been noticing that Brits and Americans are being more forthright about black crime in the U.S. and the U.S. We’re finding common ground.

      • crystal221

        It wasn’t just liberal whites that were angered about the killing of Trayvon Martin. I’m white and don’t consider myself a liberal (I have a mixture of conservative and liberal beliefs) but I was angered over his killing because of George Zimmerman not having the injuries that one would have if a thug tried to bash their head into a sidewalk and I only support a killer if there is no doubt that they acted in self defense or if the murder victim is a psychopath like Lewis Gill or a vile sociopath like his pathetic excuse for a mother (if he ever has the misfortune of becoming a victim of crime I’m going to be on his attacker’s side and hope that one of their family member’s responds to the crime by repeating his mother’s words about what he did to Andrew Young). Then there’s the fact that out of the two, George Zimmerman is the one with the history that shows he’s a prison-bound thug. Trayvon Martin could have been one, but I’m more willing to give him the benefit of the doubt out of the two since he’s not the one with a criminal record/history of domestic violence.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Boy, you’ve got a screw loose if you think Zimmerman was a thug. The photographs of his injuries were clear. Thugvon Martin was trying to kill him. Martin had a history of theft and assault and you want to defend him when he was a prison bound thug. But, with a father like he had who was a member of the Crips it is no wonder that he would turn out the way he had. Trayvon Martin is dead, dead, dead and the world if better off for it.

    • So CAL Snowman

      All lefty “intellectuals” are Keynesian economists by default because they haven’t the brains or the ability to understand macro or micro economics. All liberals also worship the state, which means that by default they worship the Federal Reserve/BOE – the engines of our current Keynesian nightmare. Try explaining to a liberal the concept of inflation as it relates to the money supply, all they can do is look at you like you’re speaking Chinese.

      • Daniel Schmuhl

        Well by inflating the money you tax wealth. So the guy is saying that we should tax wealth and give it to Africa, although none of this AID has ever worked. It is several layers of stupid.

        • William_JD

          Inflation doesn’t tax wealth. It taxes wealth held in dollars. The price of other assets like real estate will rise with inflation.

          • Daniel Schmuhl

            Yes I know all about how the rich can hide their wealth in paintings and other assets. I normally don’t feel like adding lots of qualifiers to my statements.

            It is a form of wealth tax though.

  • Funruffian

    There’s no dealing with these feral Bantus on any socially reasonable level. We’ve all learned that eons ago. We just hope that fate turns against them so society doesn’t have to deal with them anymore. Judge Keith Cutler is a criminal for Reckless endangerment in my analysis. This psycho may walk free in a couple of years and repeat the same murder.

  • Geo1metric

    The world has gone utterly insane; I can think of nothing coherent to say about this outrage!!

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    The real criminals are the ones responsible for importing these African savages into Britain. Mass 3rd world immigration is white genocide.

  • dd121

    I guess they gave him a short sentence because of the deep remorse he expressed. Oh, wait.

  • Luca

    I’m confused, was the feral negro playing the knockout game or was he polar bear hunting?

    • silviosilver

      While both activities select as a target a lone white man, there is an important distinction between the two.

      The knockout game requires spectators and so has an element of performance art to it. One is judged on the quality of one’s knockout. A strike which cleanly fells the target will be applauded, but a blow that merely leaves the target staggering may instead receive jeers. Malice towards the target is not a requirement, and a participant may express sincere regret over the harm caused.

      A polar bear hunt’s objective is to savage the prey. In this primordial scene of beast vs man showmanship takes a backseat, e.g. in contrast to the restriction to a single blow in the knockout game, a polar bear hunter may throw multiple strikes in rapid succession A polar bear hunt can take place as part of a pack, but it is also an activity that can be enjoyed alone – the thrill of the hunt is in no way reduced by no one hearing the tree falling in the forest.

  • DaveMed

    What on earth is a woman like that doing with the name “O’Hagan”?

    It’s absolutely risible.

    • Katherine McChesney

      I was thinking the same thing. That and the fact that she looks like she is mentally impaired.

    • Romulus

      You mean like 99%of all negroe Americans surnames. It would have been better to tattoo them instead.

    • silviosilver

      Well, at least they make amends for it with their first names.

  • refocus

    Sherron O’Hagan said she did not know ‘what all the fuss was about’.

    “After all it was just a stupid white cracker who accidentally died after my (welfare baby) pushed him out of the way. You know my son said the cracker sent him a facial expression that called my son a dark skinned ruffian…. and them be fighting words. No body asks me what my son should have done to protect himself from that white racism. Now you shut up I gots to get my disability check and then I have an appointment at the gym.”

  • The truth is that life is cheap to all blacks. We have a POTUS who brags that he is really good at killing people. Whites create, blacks desecrate.

  • benvad

    I wish his loved ones a great deal of suffering at the hands of one of his pets.

    This maggot of a judge must surely believe in social justice? He’s suppose to adjudicate properly, these murderers must be put to death.

  • We had a name for Judge Keith Cutler when I was growing up in the deep South: N***** lover. I notice that N lovers always live as far away from their pets as they can get. To me it is “no big deal” when a N lover gets a fatal taste of love, N style. It’s justice doled out by the giant hand of fate.

      Surprise, surprise. Even more surprising, she knows who her “baby daddy” is.

  • LACountyRedneck

    Such a bolden momma. The negro needs to be taught not to mess with Whites.

  • Truth Teller

    In America the District Attorney’s and Police Chief’s associations have used their power and money to fund and sponsor 3 strikes you’re out, victim’s rights, use a gun go to jail etc state propositions to end lenient sentencing. Judges have also lost re-elections because of outrage at lenient sentencing.
    We have a terrible black on White crime wave, but at least the convicted criminals get longer sentences. Until federal Judges order them released because of prison overcrowding.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      This is why they should be taken out to a remote area, forced to dig their own graves, shot dead by firing squads armed with belt fed machine guns, then covered with lime and buried so deep the bones will NEVER be found.

  • “I don’t know what the fuss is about.”

    An innocent man was murdered. I’ll bet Mr. Young’s family knows exactly what the “fuss” is about.

    • Reverend Bacon

      I often feel that way when I read about a dead thug who tried to shoot a cop, and there’s a fuss that says the cop should have- what? Shot the gun out of his hand?

      And I feel that way about Saint Skittles, too.

  • kjh64

    “That mother may not have killed that man, but she’s just as dangerous and psychotic as her thug son. People like her who see nothing wrong in taking the lives of innocent people are nothing more than threats to society. It’s no surprise why her son ended up becoming a thug and a killer.”

    My point exactly. This woman is a sociopath just like her rotten son. The fact that she thinks killing someone is “no big deal” shows. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

  • kjh64

    You mean they can get worse than African-Americans?


    “It’s This Bad”
    by Theodore Dalrymple

    Returning briefly to England from France for a speaking engagement, I bought three of the major dailies to catch up on the latest developments in my native land. The impression they gave was of a country in the grip of a thoroughgoing moral frivolity. In a strange inversion of proper priorities, important matters are taken lightly and trivial ones taken seriously.

    …Having seen how the British state takes the serious lightly, let us now see how it takes the trivial seriously.

    The newspapers reported the case of an Oxford student who, slightly drunk after celebrating the end of his exams, approached a mounted policeman. “Excuse me,” said the young man to the policeman, “do you realize your horse is gay?”

    The policeman did not think the student’s remark was innocent, however. He called two squad cars to his aid, and, in a city in which it is notoriously difficult to interest the police in so trivial a matter as robbery or burglary, they arrived almost at once. Apparently, the mounted policeman thought – if thought is quite the word I seek – that the young man’s remark was likely to “cause harassment, alarm or distress.” He was arrested and charged under the Public Order Act for having made a “homophobic remark.”

    How much clearer does it need to be than Farrakhan telling blacks to slash white faces with knives so they’ll remember the humiliation, when if a white leader said that kind of thing, they’d get absolutely impaled in the media, along with the political figure standing behind him.
    Call me when something manages to break through the collective coma western civilization has fallen into, cause it is pointless to get my blood pressure up over the apparently futile hope for an awakening.
    Honest to god… if this is all the spine we’ve got in the face of outright savagery in our midst, maybe we deserve extinction. Cause this freakshow being tolerated any longer is pathetic.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    To me and millions of other whites, his death at the hands of police, other darkies or the next white person he attacks would also be “no big deal.”

  • RyanP

    A white mother might very well plead for a light sentence for her own son. But to have no sense of guilt? How about “I am so sorry what my son did to that boy, I think about his parents every day, my heart breaks for them” etc. I truly believe that she doesn’t feel a thing.
