A HARLOW man has been made the subject of a Community Behaviour Order (CBO).
Lewis Cooper-Gray, aged 34, of Halling Hill, Harlow was “discharged absolutely” from four charges in relation to failing to comply with a Community Protection Notice (CPN) in the town centre.
He has now been subject to a CBO for two years.
The CBO calls for him:
1. Not to beg in a public place
2. Not to approach members of the public and ask for money.

Why can’t this be done to Paul Crick? He’s a blight to Bush Fair and the community officers don’t give a toss. They apologise to him when he gets fined for defecating in the bushes outside peoples homes! He abuses the ambulance service, even had an air ambulance out because he was drunk as usual in Bush Fair during the summer. He’s constantly begging, gets a few quid and goes straight to the only shop he’s not banned from for beer! What is the point of community officers? they seem to scared to go to Bush Fair and when they do they’re too busy laughing and joking with the drunks and thieves that he encourages to join him daily!
Carlos that man mentioned in this article has a flat and gets full benefits. A charity gave him new clothes and trainers etc and his words were.. “ I don’t want them I don’t look homeless “. I was present when he said this. This is not the first time he has been arrested for begging and approaching the public. He even gets abusive when people do not give him money. I also believe he has been in prison for this. He has shown no remorse to abusing people and has carried on regardless of going to court before. He has nothing to lose, they put him in prison he has everything he needs in there.
I see Lewis about all the time he looks nothing like this picture anymore, anyone who knows his situation has sympathy for him.
regards to lewis i know his sister , shes nothing like him , shes ashamed of how he turned out given they had the same upbringing , hes had to be stopped seeing his sisters baby because he loves his drugs and drink to much , he is much like paul crick and just as abusive , his dad offered him a job working with him and he turned it down cause he was more interested in taking drugs and drinking, sat on his arse at his dads home , and his dad had enough of him smoking drugs in his house and kicked him out , he made himself homeless smoking that crap in his parents home , he made his life hard , he abuses people understandable why they have an opinion of him , i would rather the money go to ukraine carlos as lewis just uses it for his habit , he told my partner he needs to get off of it , he should have accepted his dads offer which was an open offer that he will never accept cause he wont be able to do what his doing now , and his dad told us that himself ,
I gave him a quid once and he promised to pay me back. When I saw him a few days later up the town centre he abused my thick-rimmed glasses and threw paper at my head. Never again!!!!
The man is a regular shoplifter and addict, has a place to live and still begs people for money.
Whilst Lewis continues to make the decision to act the way he does owing to his addictions, it is not clear cut or as simplistic to be motivated to make better choices and to accept offers of support. Before judging him based on what is seen or heard, try understanding the reality of addiction which is the driver of his self destruction. Empathy and understanding is what he or anyone in the same situation needs rather than being judgemental. Seeing him around the Town last week was sad, he looked high, thin and dirty.
Deena, you’re asking way too much of Harlow dwellers. They’re incapable of empathy and sympathy. Lack of understanding and care is exactly why the town is the way it is. Nobody gives two rats as to how to fix things, instead focusing on the “me me me” and often written in a poor, less than acceptable English - surprising since English is the language they grow up speaking. Glad I left that town, was nothing but a cesspit back then, and judging by the news coming from this site - it continues to be.
Evil, vile, aggressive and abusive. He begs all the time preys on women and elderly, gets abusive when no one gives him money, yes he's had a bad past, but if he wanted to change he would, been given loads of chances but decides he don't want it. Addiction is a illness but he uses this to his own advantage, and is all self inflicted. You can't help someone who don't want to be helped. He's been to prison for this in the past, got clean, had a carer/social worker and started to look respectable, then it all went down again and he's back to hospital old normal self, being a nuisance, aggrevating and abusive
When I was in college I used to see him all the time in town he would always be walking about asking for money and even asked me for money in McDonald's once. At the time I thought he was just homeless so I gave him a quid and said to him to go get some food. At the time I didn't realise his addictions so I thought I was helping a homeless man but from what I have heard and read about him now it seems like he got himself in that situation and he is the only one that can get himself out. Its a shame but addiction is an awful thing but it's one of those things where its all about your mindset but when you need a hit to properly function that's when it becomes a danger not only to the person taking it but to anyone that person interacts with.
I spoke with Lewis today outside mcdonalds and he broke down in tears and told me he is suffering with addiction and severe depression. He told me he only asks for money for drugs because he hates feeling sick when he withdraws. He said he has no one to talk to and feels very alone, he spoke of suicide and missing his late mother. He said he would work now if he was given the opportunity. If any services could reach out to help him (I know he’s been offered support before) please don’t give up on him, keep offering. Despite his issues and mistakes, this is a human being and he deserves compassion. I hope he is helped and saved.

There for the grace of God go I..... He is a deeply desperate and broken man. Rather than judge and slander him, maybe think about...how fortunate u are to be in your shoes rather than Lewis's shoes!!
This homeless vile pig was molesting my children whilst the drink and drug addicted mother traded both her children's and her own sexual entertainment to gratify the stinking beast pictured above. Pray for my irrevocably damaged innocent children forced to endure this pig.
