  1. This shooting seems very reminiscent of what happened to Mark Duggan a few years ago. To my knowledge what normally happens when the police find someone who is in possession of drugs and firearms, is that the individual gets a lengthy prison stay. Why a few bullets to the chest i don’t quite understand, what happened to ‘innocent until proven guilty’ deserved his day in court in my opinion.

  2. For sure Thomas. I find it unnerving that many people seem to think, ‘he was a drug dealing gangster anyhow’. This is unproven and in any case, as you rightly said, we should all be able to defend ourselves in a court room. I wonder how these people would react if it was their father, brother or son killed in such a manner?
