CHERYL GIBBS: Not a great film, but I still balled my eyes out

Have your say

I feel very sorry for the family of Mark Duggan, the man shot dead by police who thought he was carrying a weapon.

A jury has ruled that his death was lawful because the police thought he was armed and dangerous.

They allege he’d been given a gun 15 minutes before officers attempted to arrest him on suspicion of planning an attack, but he was later found not to have it.

His family have been hoping to have someone to blame for his death, which sparked the London riots.

I can’t help but think, though, that if you move in those kinds of circles, where you’re likely to be under surveillance by police tackling gun crime, it’s asking for trouble.

It achieves nothing but more violence and grief.
