Jack Barnes - Unlawful Killing
« on: 08:29:50, 27/02/21 »

A man who died after being restrained in the street by public transport workers was unlawfully killed, a coroner has ruled.
Manchester Coroner's Court was told Jack Barnes shouted "I can't breathe" repeatedly as he was held by Metrolink staff in Manchester in October 2016.

The 29-year-old from Hull had a cardiac arrest and died seven weeks later.
Concluding his death was unlawful, Coroner Nigel Meadows said the workers' actions amounted to manslaughter.
Transport for Greater Manchester's Chief Executive Eamonn Boylan said: "First and foremost I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Jack Barnes
"This was a tragic and deeply upsetting incident. There were clear policies and training in place at the time of the incident, which those involved that evening completely disregarded

All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
