Qld teen who racially abused Brisbane train security guard avoids jail


A TEENAGER who shot to internet fame after he was recorded racially abusing a security guard on a Brisbane train has been given a suspended jail sentence.

Abdel-Kader Russell-Bouzmar appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today, where he pleaded guilty to assault and racial vilification.


Russell-Bouzmar, who was 17-years-old at the time, said that he was proud and uploaded the horrifying footage to social media.

In the video, the teen can be seen and heard using filthy language to racially abuse Josephat Mkhwananzi, a 58-year-old train security guard.

In court, Russell-Bouzmar blamed alcohol and an ice addition for the rant, which the magistrate labelled as disgusting and un-Australian.

He was sentenced to two months’ prison, suspended for a year, and 12 months’ probation for a string of other offences.
