    He choked himself?

    IPCC has opened an independent investigation.

    He shouldn't have put something in his mouth then. Typical criminal.

    Whilst it is unfortunate that a life was lost, the man would have avoided being put in that position if he'd complied with the police instructions and not swallowed a pill. There is a reason why those who respect figures in authority do so much better in life than those who constantly try and fight against them.

    Can't really see him putting something in his mouth?

    But if that's what he died from then I can't really fault the police officers. If they were wrongly pursuing him then that's something separate, but if someone chooses to commit suicide in front of the cops that's not the cops' fault.

    Wonder how much the shop owner made flogging the video. Seems like he popped something in his gob and resisted arrest. Oops! :dontknow:

    P.S. George Soros, get your check book out mate, this is the moment BLM muppets have been waiting for all summer! :woo:

    Just wait a couple of days, there will be plenty of chavs itching for an opportunity to loot, just like they did when scumbag Mark Duggan was killed.

    Why call him a scumbag?

    Most rational minded BLM supporters aren't happy when things like this happen though :dontknow:



    Anyway I reserve my opinion/outrage for when the investigations are over (unlike most people both sjw and right wing because it's much more fun to draw conclusions that'll suit your political agenda)

    He was a gangster and a drug-dealer who was arrested numerous times and only was getting away because of his links to organised crime. And tbh police wouldn't just go up to a person and shoot them dead unless they genuinely believe that the person presents a danger. Just like with Michael Brown, a lot for some reason side with criminals and not with those who protect decent people.

    Probably had a bag of drugs ready for sale that he swallowed to get rid of the evidence, and overdosed on what he swallowed due to the quantity.

    He deserved it - disrespect the police and face the consequences. The left are only up in arms about it because of the colour of his skin.

    Yeah but like i personally feel like there is no justification for killing someone. I wont lie, some police are genuinely victimised as they put their lives down to protect the community but it wont change the fact that for every good, there are a few policemen/women that abuse their power.
    But I understand what you mean.
    Tbh the man that this thread is based on, did try to swallow evidence and got caught so the policeman putting his hand over his mouth and causing him to die wasn't fully his fault as this wouldn't have happened if he didn't hide evidence tbh.

    I personally don't think its fair to call BLM activists muppets. Majority of the time they are fighting for injustice. Of course you will have some that are more extreme than others but that is in every pressure group.

    How about the white woman that 'disrespected ' the Somali police officer?
    Did she also deserve the consequences?

    I wonder if this incident will spark civil unrest.
    Warm weather and youths on school holidays with nothing to do.

    London Riots 2 incoming?
