The charity organization Inquest says that about 4,500 people died in prison or police custody in the UK between 1990 and 2013.
Despite this figure, there has not been one successful homicide prosecution in this entire period – in fact not for over 30 years.
So, is this a staggering figure that indicates a dark side to policing in the UK or just a tragic reality of what sometimes happens in the justice system? Are the police innocent or is this the case that these people are innocently killed?
