      I'm always staggered how they can pick someone up within a few hours of a crime - there must be a very small circle of 'serious' criminals in the country which makes it almost a process of elimination?

        that's terrible, they should jail him for life whoever he is.


        A worrying sign of the times.

          I got the impression he was arrested at the scene more or less.

              anyone who wanted to know would have known when it was being made available, so i think it could be unfair to blame a 'government ego' for this death.

                I think he was killed because some thieving scumbag shot him in the stomach.

                  So it's wrong to shoot unarmed people, Chief? Welcome home.

                    The poor man was murdered a few hours ago. Try and have a bit of class.

                      RIP Alan and condolences to your family and friends.


                      Pity the'suspect' hadn't been kicked out of the country after his earlier 'form'.
