Friday 5 August 2022 12:49 PM Jack Beasley's family confront the killers of their son in Brisbane Supreme ... trends now
Tensions boiled over after two teenagers were jailed for their involvement in the fatal stabbing of 17-year-old Jack Beasley on the Gold Coast.
Supporters of Jack's family clashed with another group in Brisbane Supreme Court after the two boys were sentenced on Friday.
'Your son is a f***ing murderer,' a supporter screamed.
Jack's father Brett Beasley said tempers flared after an 'absolutely disgusting' comment by the other group.
'One of their family members at the end of it yelled out "At least our brother is coming home" - who says that?' he told Nine Network.
Security ensured the two groups left the building separately.

One boy was just 15 when he fatally stabbed Jack Beasley (pictured) in 2019 and received a 10-year jail sentence and the other - who was 17 - seven years for charges including manslaughter
Emotions ran high after one boy who was just 15 when he fatally stabbed Jack in 2019 received a 10-year jail sentence and the other - who was 17 - a seven-year term for charges including manslaughter.
The two boys were called cowards by Jack's mother Belinda Beasley in a tear-filled victim impact statement she read in court.
'You have taken away Jack's life and ruined so many others with the choices that you made that night - and for what?' she said.
'You ran away like cowards and left Jack ... to die on the footpath without a care in the world - what sort of people are you?'
The two boys were among five teenagers - aged between 15 and 18 at the time - charged after Jack was killed in December 2019.
Jack was stabbed in the heart and later died in hospital after a fight broke out between his group and the five teens in Surfers Paradise.
Belinda Beasley said her family had endured a 'living nightmare' ever since Jack (pictured with dad Brett) was stabbed to death
