Harassment or a shrine to the dead?

If he is the principle breadwinner, then it seems likely that his family is largely funded by the proceeds of crime.
All of those involved in this "tribute" are demonstrating a casual disregard for the criminality that led to their loss.

The Mirror wrote:Dead burglar Henry Vincent is to get a £100,000 funeral, including a horse-drawn procession, past the home of the pensioner who stabbed him, it has been claimed.

The funeral for the 37-year-old will apparently act as a message showing that "gypsies are not to be messed with".

Quite possibly by the newspaper, though it is not like them to incite racial hatred...

100k for a funeral who said crime don't pay.

The saga continues...
A birthday shrine has been erected in memory of Henry Vincent outside the home of the pensioner whose house he broke into.
Mourners stuck flowers and balloons outside the Hither Green property to mark what would have been Vincent's 38th birthday.
It represents the latest development in a spat between Vincent's family and supporters of Richard Osborn-Brooks, 78, in whose home the intruder was fatally stabbed.

Totally pathetic but I thought it fitted in with this thread.

Has anybody asked one of the grieving family, what they would do if they found someone burgling their home? I very much doubt they'd call the police.

IMO the police or CPS should make a statement about the 'crime'. The pensioner had a lawful defence and they need to back him more strongly. Not only does he have to live in fear he also has to come to terms with killing someone. They should lay their floral tribute at his favourite place, his grave, his house etc. Not near the victim of his crime.

I don't really care if he was a gypsy, drug addict or peaky blinder - If you are going to rob someone with the threat of violence, then you take a risk that someone will defend themselves.
My suggestions are not legal advice
