Have your say
It's certainly been a long time coming! Not sure we should be using the emotive 'Taser Death' though - surely that's one of the things the inquest is to prove? Was taser the cause or not? Either way, the death of a well liked lad at such a young age is tragic :(
To JJJ you witnessed it ???
