The British Broadcasting Corporation reports:
Millionaire ‘thug’ beat homeless
Millionaire ‘preyed on the weak’
A “thug” and “bully” who police said preyed on vulnerable people for fun has been jailed for five and a half years at Chester Crown Court.
Gizzi, 34, previously admitted two charges of grievous bodily harm and one of actual bodily harm.
He beat up two homeless people with wooden staves, the court was told.
He also admitted conspiracy to sell contraband cigarettes and customs and excise tax evasion worth up to £750,000.
Twenty two offences of mortgage fraud totalling £1.4m were also taken into consideration.
Also from the BBC:
John Damon Gizzi was a millionaire who portrayed himself as a legitimate builder and property tycoon.
Gizzi, 34, who has been jailed for five and a half years, lived in a lavish mansion near the A55 in north Wales and drove a £100,000 Bentley, had long been tormenting people in Rhyl.
Police said he was a bully preying on the weak who beat up homeless people and believed himself to be untouchable.
Detectives said he intimidated locals, ruled Rhyl and saw himself as a Mr Big.
From these articles, it looks much like the police’s description of millionaire Gizzi as a thug is correct.
Mr Gizzi is a millionaire, apparently partly from illegal, partly from legal sources of income.
Though legal under the present system, should Gizzi’s and other builders’ legal sources of income, like building houses unaffordable to the poor, thus destroying their human right of a roof over their heads, be necessarily considered as legitimate?
A society with so much propaganda that poor and/or homeless people supposedly owe their misery to their own faults, may very well eventually breed its Gizzis.
