Polis əlində qara ölümün sayı xüsusilə ölkə üzrə geniş miqyaslı iğtişaşlar tetikleyen polis marksmen tərəfindən Mark Duggan və atış sonrasında ictimai üçün artan aiddir. Along with Duggan, the deaths of reggae artist Smiley Culture, Kingsley Burrell-Brown and Demetre Fraser is at the forefront of the community’s consciousness as is the issue of deaths in custody.
A number of concerned individuals and activists have therefore organised a public meeting on the issue of Black deaths in custody which will be held at the London School of Economics Students Union (LSESU) on Wednesday 26 Oktyabr.
Organised by Black Mental Health UK in association with the LSE SU, the meeting, which is free to attend, but requires delegates to register online, marks the first steps to establish what action the community can take to ensure that this issue becomes a matter of priority for the present Government.
Government figures show that a disproportionate number of deaths following contact with the police are of Black people. Almost half the deaths of people in police custody are mental health service users and deaths of those detained under the Mental Health Act account for 62% of all deaths in state custody.
