British judge: “a duty to protect”

British policing works – of course!

“A young man who died in police custody less than 45 minutes after ringing 999 for help [the national emergency number] was captured on CCTV pleading for mercy, an inquest into his death has been shown.”[1]

Hah! We British bang on about the ‘Stans’ and their records of police treatment. But, “he had taken cocaine the weekend before his death”. So? Relevant? Pepper-sprayed, cuffed, legs shackled? Why?
