Have some respect: Police warn they’ll arrest anyone who removes shrine for burglar Henry Vincent

Published

on

The police have warned that they will arrest anyone who removes floral tributes laid in memory of a burglar Henry Vincent forcing the victim of a burglary to see the flowers laid outside his home.

The orders have come for Lewisham Commander Simon Dobinson, with many frontline officers disagreeing with the orders.

Now not only was a 78-year-old burgled by two men he was forced into his kitchen by a burglar armed with a weapon while another man went and searched the house. He managed to over power his attacked and Henry Vincent died.

He was not murdered and it was an act of self defence, and he is a true hero for defending himself and his home in such scary circumstances. He is not a killer he is a victim of crime.

The burglar was killed in an act of self defence protecting him life and home as two burglars raided his home. As tensions start to build and the family of Vincent have warned that they will keep laying and replacing the flowers.

Police Hour would urge the family of Vincent to have some respect and stop laying the flowers outside of the victim of a burglar, Henry Vincent was a wanted criminal and entered the house of this man and forced him into the kitchen he was 78-years-old and was fighting off an attacked.

Cards and flowers have now been torn down four times by angry members of the public who have travelled miles to support 78-year-old Osborn-Brooks who has now had threats made to his life from the thugs friends who want revenge for his death.

The tributes have been put back up for a fifth time and as tensions rise members of the public have been warned if they are taken back down arrests will be made.

Officers are now guarding the tributes and trouble is expected to happen overnight as members of the public anger rises at the lack of support and protection for the victim of a burglar.

A Police Officer with the Met has told Police Hour anonymously that they are ashamed of the advice that the Lewisham Commander Simon Dobinson has issues as officers on the ground believe this is intimidation towards the 78-year-old as that was not the location that this burglar who attempted to rob two pensioners by force at 00.45am in the morning attempted to burgle and attack two pensioners who have now been taken our of their own home.

The Met Police have now released a statement

Chief Superintendent Simon Dobinson, Lewisham Borough commander, said: “I am aware of the concerns that have been raised by residents regarding the floral tributes placed in Hither Green.

“My officers have a responsibility to provide reassurance to local residents so they can go about their daily lives, while also respecting the wishes of family and friends to mark the loss of a loved one.

“They are not there to safeguard or facilitate the laying of floral tributes; we are liaising with the local authority who are considering appropriate management of the floral tributes.

“I do not want anyone to feel intimidated or that they are not being allowed to respond in a dignified way to a tragic death.

“We would urge members of the public to respect the wishes of those who choose to place flowers and other tributes in the area.

“We would also request those placing tributes or visiting the area to behave in a responsible manner so as not to disrupt the local community.

“A small police presence remains in place in and around South Park Crescent to provide reassurance to the public.

“There have been no arrests. Officers will assess any potential criminal offences including any allegations that are made to police, which will be dealt with in a fair and appropriate manner on an individual basis.”

Vincent’s family have now criticised people who took the flowers down calling them scum.

They believe this is the best place for the flowers to be and don’t think they are doing anything wrong.
