16 posts in this topic

FORMER Premier League star Dalian Atkinson is reported to have died after being Tasered by police outside his dad’s home.

The ex Aston Villa and Man City star is said to have gone into cardiac arrest after cops were called in the hours of this morning.

Police were called to a home after after receiving reports that people were concerned for the safety of a person in Telford.

Officers from West Mercia Police raced to the scene at 1.30am this morning and a Taser was used on a 48-year-old man.

He received medical attention after going into cardiac arrest but was pronounced dead at around 3am.

The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

In a statement the force said: “Upon arrival Taser was deployed and a 48-year-old man, who subsequently received medical attention, was pronounced dead at approximately 3am.

“West Mercia Police are unable to comment any further as the incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) as is normal procedure and will assist the IPCC with their enquiries.”

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called by West Mercia Police to an address in Meadow Close in the Trench area of Telford at about 1.45am this morning.

“An ambulance was dispatched and upon arrival found a man who had been Tasered.

“As he was being conveyed to Princess Royal Hospital, his condition deteriorated and he went into cardiac arrest.

“Despite the efforts of the crew and hospital staff, it was not possible to save him and he was confirmed dead at hospital, shortly after arrival.”

It follows the death of ex-soldier Spencer Beynon in June, after he was Tasered by police in Llanelli, South Wales, after stabbing a dog and then himself.

Friends said he had suffered mental health problems after leaving the military.

Last year police use of Tasers, which are intended as a non-lethal weapon, went up slightly towards the end of 2015 with 10,329 uses by forces in England and Wales, a two per cent rise on the previous year.

However, of those, 19 per cent (1,921) were discharges; a decrease of three per cent from the previous year.

The difference between our thoughts. Personally don't think any British Policeman woke up today with the intention of going out and "Executing" Dailian Atkinson with a Tazer of all things. Don't know the full story but guys are screaming for a conviction already. And BLM unfortunately needs zero fueling from the UK, It already has a major bandwagon from what happens on the other side of the world.

Mental illness is a sad thing to see someone going through.

I think sometimes friends and family look the other way until it comes down to a situation like this where the police have to be called. And you 'd up up with things like this. Where it escalates.
