"Former footballer Dalian Atkinson has died after being shot with a Taser by police at his father's house. A neighbour described seeing the former Aston Villa star, 48, being Tasered after "stumbling towards" the police. Mr Atkinson was treated by paramedics but pronounced dead in hospital at about 03:00."

It's the same old story. Another black man dead at the hands of UK police. #BlackLivesMatter

We will not lay our pitchforks down until black people are immortal and whitey crackers live no longer than 55 years (60 for those that march with us)

You have to try really hard to get killed by British police.

Now getting killed by a taser is bad luck to some extent in any case, but a man with kidney failure screaming at the police on the street at 2am? That suggests a poorly controlled chronic drinking problem, that this is not the first time he has encountered the police in these circumstances.

He was probably being aggressive and resisting arrest.

Probably. After all, I'm sure the ***** who rioted 5 years ago probably need a new TV or stereo by now.

UK police don't go around tasering people for no reason. Let's not speculate while the IPCC investigation is ongoing.
