In August last year, we heard how a teenager had picked up a French tourist’s 6-year-old son and launched him off the 10th floor of the Tate Modern in London, leaving the child with horrific life-changing injuries and nearly killing him.

19-year-old Jonty Bravery, who has autism and obsessive compulsive disorder, spent more than 15 minutes stalking potential victims at the London tourist attraction before fixing on a young boy who had briefly left his parents’ side. He ‘scooped (the victim) up and, without any hesitation, carried him straight to the railings and threw him over’.
Jonty Bravery was given a life sentence of ‘at least 15 years’ for attempted murder, with the judge telling him “you may never be released.” Well it looks like Jonty is on course to fulfill that prophecy after attacking staff at Broadmoor’s high-security psychiatric hospital, where he was being held prior to sentencing.
As reported by Metro, Jonty repeatedly punched nursing assistant Sarah Edwards in the head and face before pulling her hair, after she said she was going to clean his room. He then bit Maxwell King, a rehabilitation therapist assistant, on the finger after he stepped in to help his colleague
Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot branded the incident ‘deeply unpleasant’ at Westminster Magistrates Court this week, as she handed Bravery 14 weeks extra jail time as punishment. What’s 14 weeks when you’re already serving at least 15 years eh?
In my view, what makes this really serious is this woman was quite vulnerable and in a difficult job in Broadmoor.
It was pretty nasty. She had her back to you when you struck. You punched her face and her head, pulled her hair and took her down to the ground. It was a really horrible attack.
Other officers came to help, then you bit the finger of the second complainant, Mr King, because he had to come to help her. It’s deeply unpleasant.
Here’s a court artist sketch of Jonty looking distressed during the hearing:
There is some good news relating to the Tate modern incident – Jonty’s victim, now 7 years old, has started to walk again with the help of a cane.
With any luck, Jonty Bravery won’t be put in any position to harm another human being ever again. I’m not sure how you’re supposed to help someone who such a severe personality disorder and unstoppable desire to cause suffering to others, but the least the people who are responsible for him now can do is assure he doesn’t get to indulge in that sort of behaviour.
I mean just look at the state of this guy:
Can you imagine him smiling? Looks like one of the most miserable bastards to ever exist. I still can’t imagine how his poor victim’s family kept themselves from killing the guy at the Tate Modern. I mean imagine being on holiday and some lunatic throws your kid off a roof? A happy family vacation turned into a living nightmare in a matter of seconds.
Let’s hope the young lad continues to recover and that the staff members Jonty attacked at Broadmoor have also recovered from their experience with him.
For more psychotic behaviour, get a load of this murderer in court doing his best to get sent to a mental institution rather than prison. Pure nightmare fuel.
