Cooper-Gray was committed to prison for a total of 52 weeks as he has shown “a flagrant disregard for court orders”.
He's looking well
He got a twelve month sentence so he'll only do 6 months, not much for a repeat offender, blokes a total menace, mind you he'll get a warm bed and 3 meals a day at our expense.
I saw him after the last time he came out of prison. He looked very well, smart and together. At least in prison he will have a roof over his head, a full belly and be warm.
Indeed cam, I'm sure plenty of pensioners would like to be in that position this winter, maybe we could start a funding campaign for him online, I'll match your donations
Am I the only one who has a problem with someone getting a 12 months sentence for begging
They should use that mugshot on posters to warn of the dangers of drink and drugs.
One of many you will find up the town centre
Yeah your right Compo.....it should be longer!
Rather than keep putting Lewis in prison, why not try and do something to actually help break this cycle? He has been a heavy drinker for years, but the lost of his mother tipped him over the edge of being a drinker into substance dependency and we are all just hating on him because THAT is what we are all focusing on, why is he using substance to get through the day? The substance use is a symptom of a much deeper issue, it has now become its own issue but you can't expect him to just stop. If your life was so miserable and you felt so low that getting high was the only thing to keep you going, would you just stop? The lack of empathy or compassion is appalling.
We all have heartache, we all lose people, we all have problems and toight times. We dont all turn to drink and drugs. He's just a blight on society
I'd like to think that if my life took some terrible twists that i wouldn't fall into a spiral that would lead me to a similar place. I can't imagine that this is a lifestyle choice - it sounds like a life of misery (for all concerned). Its seems to me that putting people like this in prison helps no one in the long run.
H Arlow he will only come off drink and drugs when he is ready in himself, until then you can’t help someone that doesn’t want to change . He has had help with getting him a place to live his benefits clothes, drugs and alcohol place. He got the help in prison for his addiction. What do expect the services to do if he isn’t ready to change.
In Japan a lot of pensioners are committing crime in order to go to prisons as at least they will get food, a warm bed and a roof over there head.
Nobody choses to be a drug addict or an alcoholic. Some people have a disposition towards these activities because of the way their brains are wired. They should be given help not locked up.
He is a nuisance, but he needs professional help. A period of cold turkey won't do him any harm as hopefully the prison authorities will keep him the hospital wing for the beginning of his sentence.
All the people judging this guy should be careful that they never end up in a position like him. It's shameful and outright disgusting that you're all sitting here with little more than maliciousness judging this guy. I've never met him but his situation sounds dire and desperate. He isn't a blight on society as some of you said, he's a lost individual with a deep burden to carry. I hope sincerely that none of you should ever fall into the clutches of drug and alcohol abuse, because I can tell you that is a cycle that is nigh on impossible to break once it has its claws in you. Perhaps look at why this guy is behaving this way and how society isn't doing enough to help - might be a better approach as opposed to the typical British self-serving taxpayer mentality. Get over it, people pay taxes and it goes on all kinds of things. If you don't like it, leave,
threaten him with a job and tell him he has to pay crap loads of tax and insurance like the rest of us that will scare him enough
D Fir a start this man is a constant nuisance to society, preying on the elderly and young women begging for money to feed his addiction when thru refuse to give anything, he's aggressive towards them, he assaulted a pensioner once when they refused to help him and he stole their bag and money, he's had so many community orders against him and fines he don't pay, he's stole of his own family and so they have nothing to do with him either, he's not homeless has a flat , he's a coccaine addict, so many services have tried to help him in so many ways to get clean but he don't want to, and you can't make someone if they don't want help, they have first to admit they have a problem which he don't. He's a pain in the town and his past has been bad, but everyone at some point has lost someone they loved and gone through dark circles, he uses this to his advantage, I for one am glad his off the streets, he even assaulted a male few weeks ago, he's aggressive, abusive and down right intolerable.
I have known lewis since the beggining of the year dispite his drug issues and drink dependency he was very kind as someone with learning problems and other issues lewis always made sure i was ok up untill drugs got the better of him he always put me first i looked at him as my best friend i only wished i had the power to help end this viscious circle he cant seem to break lewis has done some terrible things but there are others that have done far worse we no longer speak but in my heart we will always be friends i hope that he can find the courage to break the cycle when he gets out because i know how much he wants it as he now has a beautifull niece that he wants to be a part of her life good luck lewis we arent all haters xxx
