Seni Lewis was a son, a brother, an uncle, a grandson, a friend. He was so loved by his family and friends and could be counted on in times of need. Seni was a kind, loving and easy going individual who would always make time for people.
Aged just 23 he had recently graduated from university – he was fit and healthy and was engaged in a post-graduate Masters Degreee in IT and Business Management at Kingston University. Seni Lewis was a optimistic young man who spread joy to all who knew him, he enjoyed life to the full.
A short report by BBC reporter Kurt Barling was aired by the BBC. You can view the video below. You can also see the original video and article at Kurt Barlings blog (click here)
INQUEST says that about 4,500 people died in prison or police custody in the UK between 1990 and 2013.
Despite this figure, there has not been one successful homicide prosecution in this entire period – in fact not for over 30 years.
So, is this a staggering figure that indicates a dark side to policing in the UK or just a tragic reality of what sometimes happens in the justice system? Are the police innocent or is this the case that these people are innocently killed?
