Fatal coward punches to attract longer prison sentences under harsh new laws

One-punch killers will face life imprisonment under proposed changes to Queensland laws.

The Newman government’s draft plan to tackle alcohol-related and drug-related violence, released on Sunday, would create an offence – unlawful striking causing death – to deal with one-punch killers.

Courts will also have the right to ban thugs from nightclubs across the state for life while drunken louts will be forced to do community service in areas where they act up or cause damage as part of the Newman Government’s new “Safe Nights Out” alcohol strategy unveiled today.
