"When Big Issue vendor Ralph Millward was kicked to death in May it shocked the quiet Dorset community of Westbourne. But he was not the first, and will sadly not be the last - in the same month, another homeless man in Bournemouth was sadly battered in a late-night attack, and a homeless man in Worthing was beaten and left with serious head injuries for hours before an ambulance was called.
Britain's local newspapers often carry brief stories of such city centre savagery, while the national tabloids content themselves with tales of grisly murders by 'homeless schizophrenics', thereby tarring with a broad brush two vulnerable communities denied a platform to defend themselves."
