Today marks Kingsley’s Fourth year anniversary since his untimely death and I want to honour his memory by saying how Kingsley was a loving kind brother who loved his children dearly. Kingsley should never have died in the way that he did and I will not give up the fight to find out the truth into how he died despite the odds stacked up against us.

Severn days from now the Inquest into Kingsley’s death will begin and I am appealing to the public the importance of next week’s Inquest set for Tuesday 7th April until 15th May.

I am listed first to give my account and evidence as litigate in person as I am not represented by a solicitor or barrister because of the legal aid system here in this country, especially when it comes to Death in Custody! However my position on the day will be to tell the coroner, jury and public at large what I know and provide the evidence which was kept in my possession for over four years to tell my deceased brothers account, in order to assist the jury in their decision making.

Whether we get an unlawful killing verdict or death by misadventure verdict my position is this Kingsley should never have died as all the state agent who dealt with him on the days leading up to his death owed Kingsley a duty of care in which they all failed dramatically especially those four West Midlands Police officers who assisted to transfer him from Mary Seacole psychiatric hospital in Hockley to Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Wednesday 30th March 2011 or he would have been still alive to date.

RIP bro on you forth year anniversary you are gone but never will you be forgotten as your little sister I will continue the fight against injustice even if it takes 20 years for changes to come out of your death it will not be in vain trust me! No Justice No Peace 2015.
