Police Used ‘Unsuitable Force’ on Mentally ill Man who Died in Custody
Posted by David Icke
'A mentally ill man died in police custody after officers used “unsuitable” force during an “unnecessarily” long restraint, an inquest jury has ruled.
In a damning verdict, jurors found that unacceptable and inappropriate actions by Metropolitan Police officers contributed to the death of Sean Rigg, 40, in August 2008. The jurors rejected much of the evidence given to the inquest by the constables involved.
Last night, Mr Rigg’s family called for criminal charges against the police, who they accused of “at best misleading the jury or at worst lying under oath”.They also condemned the Independent Police Complaints Commission over its “inadequate and obstructive” initial investigation that found no evidence of wrongdoing.'
