STOP Street and Social Violence

Coward’s Punch Manslaughter Law

STOP. One Punch Can Kill was overwhelmed  when the Victorian Parliament introduced the “Coward’s Punch Manslaughter Law, with a 10 year non parole mandatory minimum.

We acknowledge and sincerely thank The Hon. Robert Clark, MP, Attorney General and the Hon. Edward O’Donohue MP, Crime Prevention Minister for your support, listening to our story and recognising the seriousness and devastation of one coward punch.

The overwhelming support from the community, both from our online petition and the traditional handwritten signatures was greatly appreciated.  We could not have achieved this if it wasn’t for the support we received.

We all have a voice, we can be heard and we have made a difference.
