Parliament Wants Action against "Happy Slapping"

"Happy Slapping" movies have recently made headlines in the Netherlands. These show youngsters brutally beating others. There were particularly strong reactions after YouTube showed a movie of a handicapped youngster being beaten up in Arnhem. The Labor Party and the Christian Democrats want to introduce rapid judging for this. However, the Attorney-General's office opposes this as it is considered a violent crime.
