Dalian Atkinson dead.This is very sad news and such a waste of life.Normally we accuse the police for untowards behaviour but i am not sure this time if the police can be really blamed for the death of Dalian Atkinson.
Reason why i said this is because Dalian was in a very threatening mood and even his own father was fearful,but maybe the police could have done better by making sure an ambulance was on its way since they knew they were going to
use the taser on the victim.
But they probably saw a big healthy athletic guy and thought a little tasering could not harm him.The lesson here is never to presume when a human life is involved.
The former Premier League footballer who died after being shot with a police stun gun had a weak heart, a relative has said.Dalian Atkinson, 48, fell to the ground like a "lead balloon" according to a witness after he was hit by the Taser at around 1.30am on Monday.Neighbours in the Trench area of Telford, Shropshire, said he was well known in the cul-de-sac where he was shot. It is believed his father lives there.People in the street said the retired footballer, who drives a Porsche, is thought to have previously spent an extended period of time in hospital.
