Police Scotland Close Ranks And Blame The Dead

The lawyer representing the family of Sheku Bayoh has accused Police Scotland of closing ranks after his death in police custody.

In his statement, Aamer Anwar said "As we have seen from Hillsborough it is instinctive for police officers to blame the dead rather than their own and for families to be placed on the perverse situation of relying on the police for the truth. Within minutes of Sheku’s death, the most powerful institution in our country closed ranks, passing blame to Sheku".

Couldn't have said it better myself.
