The jury at Mark Duggan’s inquest has concluded that he was shot even though he was not armed. Although the jury said that the 29-year-old could have had gun in the taxi which he probably threw into a nearby grass before he was shot, the decision still did not sit well with Mark Duggan’s supporters.
Met Police Commissioner Mr Hogan-Howe admitted that the incident has “led to a significant reduction in trust between London's black communities and the Metropolitan Police.”
He added: "My officers do not set out to run an operation that results in someone dying. They are brave people who risk their own lives to keep the public safe."
Now it has emerged that firearm officers will trial the use of body-worm video cameras.
Assistant Commissioner Rowley said earlier: "There are great benefits to having these incidents on video. Look at the Lee Rigby case - everyone knows what happened.
"We don't need all these different opinions and conjecture - it's much easier to get to the facts."
