    Default Former Aston Villa FC star Dalian Atkinson dead after being tasered by police

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/161293...ce-in-telford/

    Fucking gutted by this, I've mentioned before that I am a big Villa fan and Atkinson was in the team just as I started getting into football, his goal at Wembley and his goal against Wimbledon are still to this day to of the goals I remember best

    especially the one against Wimbledon, I wish I could get onto youtube whilst at work so I could show the people who haven't seen it before how good it was (plus the celebration with the umbrella)

    such a shame, I'd love to know what happened to get him to fly off the handle to the extent that the police had to hit him with a taser

    he was never the most consistent player but on his day he was fucking brilliant, I didn't believe the news when I first heard it and thought it was just another one of those Twitter hoaxes.

    Oh and I didn't create this thread for it to become anything about race or police or BLM or anything like that so lets try and stay off that subject (if anyone actually replies that is)

    That is very unfortunate. Who hasn't been drunk and caused a scene or two? That's no way to go. Not a good time for the authorities to start killing people.

    I think its pretty shocking that his dad is speaking to the papers less that 24 hours after it happened, by all accounts he was pretty close to his family so I would have thought they would have wanted a bit of time to grieve and process everything

    Shocking. I was told tasers do not kill and were non-lethal?

    .....did X hack your account Master? Poor choice of words considering what happened no?



    It's a shame it happened, very unfortunate and completely avoidable from Atkinson's part. Cops for the most part don't go looking to fuck with people....which of course is something not fully accepted and embraced by a certain group of people, namely those who wish to break the law without opposition.

    Sounds like he was pretty fucked up, he had a dicky heart, was on dialasys and was off his nut, apparently he forced his way into the house and tried to strangle his dad after telling him that he had already killed his brother and sister, when the police arrived apparently his final words were 'I am the massiah'

    so often you hear of sportsmen struggling once they give the profession up but the thing I can't really get my head around is that he was 48, its not exactly like when Calzaghe or Hatton went off the rails briefly after they retired from boxing is it.

    Well I'll say that the #1 thing sports reporters/journalists in the United States would be saying is.....


    Did he suffer from any concussions? If so then CTE is going to be the reason he was fucked in the head

    I agree better use of control and restraint would have prevented the death.

    I would have probably set out to purposely get tasered in my younger days, but of an idiot I was
