Dalian Atkinson

Recommended Posts

That's really sad. He used to live in a village that friends of my mum had a shop in, he was a bit of a head case apparently and had a few issues over the years, getting in a bit of a mess.

It was a while back, but I remember him being a pretty decent footballer. Didn't he score a goal in the early days of the Premier League where he went past half of their team. It was against someone s**** like Notts County, or Oldham, or some such early 90s cannon fodder.

 

Edit: Oh yeah, it was Wimbledon. There's a Youtube in that link to the Echo site above.

kicking him according to an eye witness

 

just horrible

 

Saw her being interviewed on BBC. The BBC reporter was quick to point out they'd spoken to other witnesses/neighbours and couldn't find anyone else to back up her story. Don't know why she'd be making it up though.

yeah it seems there is a lot more to this that just he was tasered by the police. How long does a taser effect last? I assume you are not getting up of the ground 30 seconds later, I would imagine your on your backside for a good hour or more.

Not good this. Tasers kill.

It would be a better idea to use those guns that should some sort of epoxy sticky stuff. I saw it on the Discovery Channel. Seriously. It looked like a really good alternative.

Until it gets in someone's eyes or mouth or nostrils.
