Slow Service Killer Attracts No Time At All

A man complained about slow service in a restaurant. Witnesses had said he was "abrupt and rude" to the owner's wife:

When she told her husband about this exchange, he became upset and a fight erupted... (her husband) went to the kitchen and got a short-bladed paring knife... (and) swung at him (the complainer), stabbing him three times in the left side of the torso." (He) died the next day.

Justice Bell sentenced Vo to seven years in jail with a non-parole period of four years.
The moral of the tale might have been 'don't complain about poor service' but is actually 'if you're going to quite deliberately murder a person, do it in Australia'.
