The inquest also heard a pen portrait of Mr Yaqub from his partner Zoe Summers, the mother of his two children, who were six months old and 11 at the time of his death.
She told the court: 'I always felt lucky to have Yassar in my life, especially as we got older.
'He had such a kind, loving nature and only wanted the best for people around him.'
A tribute from the couple's daughter Jasmine added: 'I miss my dad more than anything.
'His presence made me so happy, I wanted to be around him forever but now all I have are memories and pictures, which I will hold on to forever.
'My dad would always encourage me to focus on my dreams but since he passed away it's very hard to, especially in school.'
Mr Yaqub's father Mohammed told the hearing his son was 'well respected in the community and never out of employment'. He fought back tears as he said: 'He was a natural father, he loved (his children) with his whole heart and taught them to be kind to others.'Gosh, what a saint he was! So...why was he shot twice in the chest by an armed cop during a hard stop?
The judge said: 'It will not surprise you to learn that the event of stopping the Audi and Volkswagen did not just happen out of the blue.
'You will hear the police had been interested for some time in Mr Yaqub before January 2, 2017.
'You will hear they had been receiving police intelligence about his activities. They had built up a picture of him.'
A handgun, bullets and a silencer were later found during a search of the car.
QED. So the only real question is - why are we wasting money on an inquest?
