The wife of a football fan left with permanant brain injuries was abused outside court today after 11 men were found guilty of offences related to the assault.The video is at the link.
Mr Dobbin's wife Nicole emerged from Basildon Crown Court to speak to reporters and said: "Justice for Dobbo!" But within seconds friends and family of some of the defendants began hurling abuse at the 46-year-old.
One man said: “Your old man was the most violent out of all of them.” Adding cruelly: “He’ll always be like that.”
Another woman shouted: “He went and smashed up 20-year-old boys.”
There is no evidence to suggest this is true.One man doesn't usually attack 11 others.
Eight police cars arrived to disperse the mob, after which Nicole gave a calm and dignified statement to the media.Just to disperse them? No arrests?
Speaking after the hearing, Det Chief Insp Martin Passmore addressed the disgraceful scenes outside court.
He said: “I want to make it absolutely clear that there is no information and no evidence that remotely suggests that Simon Dobbin is anything other than a thoroughly decent, upstanding man and he had done absolutely wrong (sic) on that day.
“He was a totally innocent victim of a pre-planned attack.”Which should mean harsher sentences for the knuckledraggers, shouldn't it?
The men will be sentenced on Monday.Let's hope Essex Police turn up when the relatives are coming out of court and make a few more arrests...
