On March 3rd Anthony Grainger, 36, was executed by police in a car park in suburban Manchester. He was sat, unarmed, in a stationary vehicle, having been followed by police in a pre-planned operation.
Anthony’s death shocked thousands of people, and left many close to him – including his partner and two young children – devastated. He had no previous convictions for violent offences, and presented no threat to the masked police, armed with machine guns, who surrounded him in several cars.
Anthony was not resisting arrest, he was unarmed, and he was immobilised by a CS canister thrown through the window of his car. He was a defenceless man murdered by Greater Manchester Police.
Police officers who take away the lives of innocent people should be tried, convicted and subject to the same punishment as other murderers.
