Crowdfunder by wheelchair user who was attacked in Hull hits target straight away

Karl Dean: this image was taken shortly after the incident on August 23, showing the head injury he sustained.

A wheelchair-user who was tipped out of his chair in a disablist attack by a thug has launched a crowdfunding appeal to replace equipment that was damaged – and it has already hit its target.

Karl Dean asked for £3,000 to replace the talker machine he uses to communicate, along with his head switch.

He also wants to put CCTV cameras on his wheelchair. This Writer can only conclude that this is to ensure that anyone carrying out attacks in future may be identified easily afterwards.

The appeal has passed its target with 27 days left, thanks to contributions from 125 supporters.

It doesn’t surprise me. One of the commenters to the Vox Political Facebook page is a friend of Mr Dean and described him as “a lovely man”.

So I would urge anyone who wants to show their support to contribute a little to the crowdfunder as a sign of solidarity.

And a man has been arrested for the crime.

Alex Procter, 20, was set to appear at Hull Magistrates Court today (August 27), charged with causing Actual Bodily Harm, common assault and criminal damage.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Sorry for the language, but I hope the little rat b*st*rd is jailed and given a good hiding – and I mean a DAMNED GOOD hiding.

    …Twice a day. Every day.

    The coward..

      Unless he admitted it in court today (and I haven’t yet seen any reports), we can only say he’s a suspect, and as he’s only been convicted of one offence, we can’t say he’s a repeat offender.

      That being said, it may have all changed by the time you see this response!

        ”Last year, Procter pleaded guilty to three charges of assault by beating and one charge of theft at Hull Magistrates’ Court.

        It is reported that he had launched an attack against three women at the McDonalds store on Jameson Street in Hull.

        One woman received considerable injuries during the attack.”

        Should be in jail for that^^^.

        Obviously he’s a ‘brave’ lad; hopefully he’ll be going to adult jail if convicted. He will be when he turns 21 anyway. See how ‘brave’ he is then.
