UPDATE: Debenhams now claim the soaking of a homeless man by a store security guard who then laughed and said the man deserved it – was “an unfortunate accident”.
Posted on Facebook yesterday evening:
What have we become in the UK – a nation of bullies?
For those asking, it was Debenhams in Portsmouth.
So to some of you you know my predicament of being homeless. But yesterday morning I woke up feeling wet socks and clothes thought I might of left a bottle open or something. I then get told by the security of Debenhams I have 10 minutes which was fine. But as he walked away he said enjoy your water bed. So I bite back as it being boxing day. So I then begin to pack up my bedding to then discover that the secunity guard from the inside of debenhams had flooded all my bedding. And ruined clothing food dog bedding public donations brought by the kind members of public. So a few of us went into speak to management didn’t do anything apparently it’s acceptable to bullying the homeless and assault them while sleeping. And when confronting the guard I got told I deserve it …. what someone deserves to be homeless. Can I get opinions on this matter.
