UK Jury says police shooting unarmed man was lawful


Jury decides Duggan was lawfully killed despite concluding he was not holding gun when police shot him



The family of Mark Duggan, whose death sparked the worst riots in
modern British history, reacted with fury when an inquest jury ruled
on Wednesday that police acted lawfully when they shot him, even
though he had not been carrying a gun when he was killed.

By a majority of eight to two, the jury ruled that the 2011 shooting
was lawful. The jury said they were sure, by the same eight-to-two
majority, that Duggan did not have a weapon in his hands when police
surrounded him. By a majority, the jury concluded he "threw" the gun
from a cab he was travelling in when armed officers forced it to stop.


The family described the jury's conclusion as perverse and said they would consider a judicial review.

Re: UK Jury says police shooting unarmed man was lawful

London = a police state like NYC


I wonder if British conservatives are now going to demand that people arm themselves in order to ward off the government. After all, that's what conservatives say in the USA - except they never say this should be done to police even though cops are part of the government.
