It would seem that the audacity of some people knows no limits. Why on earth would anyone with a reasonable mind and sense of decency decide to make a public shrine to ‘honour’ someone who had ZERO honour? It just doesn’t make sense!
Burglars are, without a doubt, amongst the lowest of the low when it comes to criminality. And I say that as having been the victim of a burglary whereby I ended up having a ‘bundle’ with someone who broke into my neighbours flat in East London.
And I am not really that interested in hearing all the BS about how burglars ‘have no choice’ or ‘they couldn’t find a job’. Bo__ocks.
Henry Vincent lived in Kent.
A quick search on a Jobs website reveals that, currently, there are 9,636 vacancies in Kent. So lets put this ‘argument’ behind why criminals do what they do to bed once and for all.
YOU have the RIGHT to go to sleep at night, or go to work during the day, without the prospect and fear of vile burglars breaking into your property. If your property has not been burgled, then you will never understand the effect that it can have on you.
And if someone does break into your home and you end up using ‘no more force than was necessary’ in order to defend yourself, then so be it. We have the legal right to defend ourselves against those evil individuals who wish to do us harm.
And if the intruder ends up dying as a result of the injuries which they sustain as you try to protect your family, then so be it.
It seems obvious to me, that the family of the Hither Green burglar knew or were at least potentially aware of his chosen ‘career’ path. They appear not to be shocked by the fact that Henry Vincent and his pal (who is still on the run) broke into a pensioners house.
Instead, they have been filmed at the ‘shrine’ shouting abuse at the local residents. And they have been referring to the REAL victim in all of this, the 78-year who was just at home minding his own business as a ‘scumbag’!? How f__king dare they!
I am not saying that they should be expected to be ‘happy’ about what happened, but what on earth makes them think that they have the ‘right’ to ‘honour’ in public the life of someone who appeared to have ZERO honour? Do it privately, away from the gaze of hardworking and decent people.
How selfish must you be, to think that the decent and hardworking people who live in the street where the burglars struck, want to have a visual reminder of the fact that their friend and neighbour has had THEIR lives ruined – all because a career criminal, who clearly had no regard for others, decided to break into their home, and ended up losing his life as a result of his own actions?
The family and friends of the Hither Green burglar should be subjected to an anti-social behaviour order.
They should not be allowed to goad the hard-working community of Hither Green. Hearing the manner in which the family and friends of Henry Vincent have referred to the residents and the REAL victims in all this, made my blood boil.
Maybe THEY should take some responsibility for the actions of Henry Vincent. If they knew what he was up to, then they should have done more to convince him that breaking into people’s property in order to steal from them, makes you the lowest-of-the-low.
And we say to the residents who keep tearing down the ‘shrine’: good on you!
We salute and applaud you. Don’t give in to the sort of individuals who believe that it’s ‘ok’ to go around helping yourself to whatever you want, regardless of the consequences.
As a society, we MUST take a harder line with criminal behaviour – as well as taking a harder line with the selfish types of individual who seems to think that it’s acceptable to ‘honour’ the life of someone who made a career of ruining other peoples lives.
To the family of Henry Vincent, we say: remember your loved one in private. No-one wants to see you cussing the REAL victims in all of this. Have some self-respect. Perhaps by showing some self-respect & dignity, you might actually bring a bit of decency to the memory of your loved one.
It’s also a shame that some reporters keep hounding the people who keep taking the flowers down.
Just let them do what everyone wants them to do, without asking them stupid questions about “why are you taking down the flowers” in the hope of getting a sensationalist headline to help you shift more copies or sell more pictures…..
