Keep kissing their ass....... yeah, that's the ticket!
CCTV footage of the attack - WARNING: Contains extreme violence
Shocking broad daylight beating - CCTV VIDEO (hat tip Jane)
Judge John Swanson called the footage "quite horrifying" - and said he had presided over murder cases in which far less violence had been used.
Mr Rocket was on his way home from an afternoon out with friends when trouble erupted outside the bus station in Rotherham town centre as he finished off a cigarette.
A gang of around five or six 'Asian' youths started following him and threatening comments were made.
Mr Rocket became so worried he took out his mobile phone to pretend he was talking to a friend, and eventually ran off from the group in fear.
But Easem Rariq, aged 19, and Moseeb Zabear, 17, chased after him, along with another teenager, Howis Iqbal, also 17.
Rariq rugby-tackled Mr Rocket to ground before Zabear jumped on his head. Iqbal then joined in, repeatedly kicking Mr Rocket to his body.
Judge Swanson said the level of violence Mr Rocket endured was "almost unbelievable".
"I have seen a video of what happened which is quite horrifying," he
told the court. "I have known murder cases where there was considerably less violence used than in this case."
In fact, miraculously, Mr Rocket escaped with only superficial injuries from the attack on September 20 last year.
