40-year-old Man was killed with a single punch, caught on CCTV

Andrew Young, a 40-year-old man who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, was killed with a single punch. A CCTV footage revealed that Young was attacked by 21-year-old Lewis Gill after he challenged Gill's friend for riding his bicycle on the pavement in a Bournemouth street in the UK last November 6, 2013.

Gill, later found out to be a convicted robber and a trained boxer, turned back and punched Young in the face. In the video below, you could see that Young fell backwards after the blow. Gill walked away as people rush to Young's aid. Unfortunately, he fractured his skull when he fell and he died the next day in Southampton Hospital.

Gill plead guilty to manslaughter. However, what shocked everyone, especially the a 40-year-old man's mother, was that he was only given a four-year sentence when manslaughter typically gets life imprisonment.

Was four years a fair sentence for what Gill did? Tell us what you think in the comments section below!
