A Sad Loss To….Whom?

Today brother Mason Sawyer paid tribute to the 20-year-old from Colchester, who was also known as Devon Sawyer, writing: “Gone but never forgotten. Rest in peace my beautiful big brother. I love you so much.”
Friend Lewis Routledge described him as “wonderful, clever and talented” .
And how did this wonderful talented man meet his maker? Well…
Devante Keane died running across a main commuter route in Willesden following a 40-minute chase. Dozens of police accompanied by dog teams and a helicopter tracked him as he dodged across gardens and vaulted fences backing onto the railway.
Police said he had been stopped on suspicion of possessing drugs and was “pursued and observed from a distance” before he ran onto lines near Dartmouth Road on Tuesday.
/facepalm
Scotland Yard said that after an assessment, the Independent Police Complaints Commission had decided not to investigate. An inquiry will be carried out by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards.
No doubt the relatives will be demanding compo regardless…

I see what you did there... ;)

"Is every town in the UK culturally enriched? "

Not entirely. Yet. And that Colchester trial is going to bear watching. The first murder would have been committed at 14...
