London Protestors March for Police Manslaughter and Murder Charge

On average since 2000, every seven days someone in Britain dies either in or directly following police custody.

Last week, dozens of campaigners blocked traffic in London with a march from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street and called for an inquiry into why, despite 400 deaths in a decade, no police officer has ever been convicted of murder or manslaughter.

Susan Alexander, the mother of Azelle Rodney who was shot six times by police, said: ‘It’s been five and a half years of fighting for justice.

‘We’ve been promised a full inquiry – all I want is the truth and to move on.’
