Duggan’s mother still waiting for answers about shooting

The family of Mark Duggan say that as the first anniversary of his death approaches they have still received no information about why he was shot dead by police. 

After the fatal shooting on 4 August last year there were four days of rioting across England.

Duggan’s mother, Pam, said she believed she was not getting answers because the police were hiding something: “Why aren’t they giving us the information?

“It makes me think the police have something to hide. I don’t like to use the word ‘killed’ in relation to what the police did to Mark. I say that he was assassinated by the police. I’d like to see the police officer who killed Mark get sentenced like any other human being. That police officer shot him in cold blood.”

She added: “I don’t think the police should carry guns at all. They’re trigger happy.

“It keeps playing on my mind that Mark was on his own and was surrounded by all those officers. How must he have felt in his final moments. It makes me cry every time I think about it.”

    This delay is just so wrong! It took the authorities no time at all to arrest, charge and bring rioters to the courts… hmmmm.

    Justice for Mark and his family.
