An 18 year old died after a coward punch. His killer will now be released.

In July 2012, 18-year-old Thomas Kelly was coward punched by Kieran Loveridge during a random attack in Sydney’s once-popular nightlife district of Kings Cross. The incident was part of a spate of violence in the area and led the NSW Government to introduce the city’s now-defunct lockout laws. Last week, Kieran Loveridge was granted parole towards the end of his 13-year sentence. On today’s podcast, we’ll look at the original incident that changed Sydney forever, the lockout laws, and where we’re at 14 years on.
