Knife attack: What sort of justice is this?

I could not believe the Mercury’s story about the knife attack in Cromford where police arrested the culprit then, on the same night, telephoned his victim to announce the knifeman had been cautioned and “released back into the community”.

The same community that he chose to terrorise by threatening innocent strangers? Back at risk after just a few hours?

Had he been a motorist parking illegally or straying a few mph over 30, would he have got away like this? What sort of justice is this? Shouldn’t our highly-paid Police Commissioner be looking into this?
