Dalian Atkinson tazered to death by police

Recommended Posts

A terrible shame, any loss of life is,  obviously some major issue during the incident for a tazer to be deployed .

Sad times. When I saw him burst onto the scene he was one of the most exciting players I had seen

Jesus Christ. I thought that this was some wind-up/spoof thread, with a funny picture being posted. I've skipped past this thread loads of times today, not realising it was actually true. 

 

Very very sad news. Not sure why he was in a "state" but something has gone horribly wrong for this to happen.

 

R.I.P. Dalian.

Already covered that earlier on. You're just a bit of an arse if you truly think that.

 

RIP Dalian

Don't agree with the title to this thread, pretty sure the officers involved didn't " taser him to death ".

It's sad in fact it's terrible.

 

Just stating that I'm surprised it hasn't kicked off with the current situation regarding that.

 

No need to resort to petty name calling.

There are some people on twitter linking the two but by the sounds of reports he would've been tasered regardless of his skin colour.

 

Apologies

No, it was a consequence of being tasered, the title implies that he was repeatedly tasered by officers with intention of taking his life .

No problem mate. 

 

Does anyone actually know what happened which led him to be tasered?

Was an amazing talent.
Whenever he got the ball, there was an air of expectation in the crowd.

No defender could cope with him - an absolutely explosive player unlike anyone else of that era.
R.I.P No.10 - Dalian Atkinson.

I am still finding it difficult to comprehend having to read that headline. It just doesn't seem possible that this could happen to a guy like Dallian Dreadful news

For that one season we had the most exciting young front pairing in the league, and I still to this day cannot fathom how that team got relegated.

 

At the time Dalian was probably viewed as a slightly better prospect than Hirst, although it was a close thing. Was absolutely gutted when we announced we'd sold him. And also felt a bit miffed when Big Ron brought him back to England to play for Villa.

 

A tragic loss, and I hope the club mark Dalian's passing at the Leeds game. Another gone too young.

 

:sad:

Just heard the witness statement on radio. Sounds horrific. 

Tasered him. Kicked him when down.and then repeated tapered him.

 

Does not sound good.
