This afternoon having heard one of the Doctors that was on call give evidence of his actions on 27th march, I am actually more confused than ever on the events that actually took place.
He assessed Kingsley whilst he was restrained on the flooe with his chest facing downwards and his hands cuffed behind him, with one Police Officer near his head and one holding his feet.
The Doctor stated that Kingsley was at times shouting, other times quiet in addition to saying he could not remember events when questioned. A man that was being fully restrained and by admission uncomfortable at times.
He went on to state despite this he decided to detain Kingsley under section 2, as he was informed of additional issues some which were apparently exaggerated, which clearly influence his decision.
When pressed by Counsel to the Chief Constable, the Doctor from being positive that Kingsley was on the floor during the whole process, changed his mind to say he may have be placed on a chair.
Concerning, is an understatement.
One question in this case has arisen regarding the demographics of the Jury, there are 6 men and 5 women with one of the women being African/Caribbean.
Let me make it clear yet again, unless you are on the voting register, you cannot be selected for Jury Service, so make sure use register using this link. It is your duty to our Community.
