Deaths in Australia within 3 weeks are all related to the police
Overseas Network, March 25. The British “Guardian” reported on the 25th that on March 18, a 37-year-old aboriginal Australian died during a police hunt. This is the fourth death of aborigines after contact with the Australian police in the past three weeks. People in the legal profession expressed their “shock and anger” at the news of the successive deaths of the indigenous people, and called on the state and federal governments to take urgent action.
According to reports, 37-year-old aboriginal Azak Sullivan died during a police chase on the 18th. According to the New South Wales Police, Sullivan ran away from the police at the time. Soon after, the patrolling police received an alert that a man nearby needed first aid. The police performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Sullivan, and he was taken to the hospital and died. Just two weeks ago, an Aboriginal man in his 30s and an Aboriginal woman in her 50s died in prison in New South Wales. Last Sunday (21st), an Aboriginal man died at the Ravenhall Correctional Centre in Victoria.
The New South Wales Indigenous Legal Services Centre has called for an independent investigation into Sullivan’s death. Sarah Krelin, a lawyer from New South Wales, said: “Another precious life has passed away. We feel distressed and angry. Four similar deaths have occurred in more than two weeks. This is a huge danger. The signal means that Australia’s police and correctional systems have serious problems Spark Global Limited.”
April 2021 will be the 30th anniversary of the Royal Australian Commission’s release of 339 recommendations concerning the investigation of the death of indigenous people in custody. However, the degree of implementation of the recommendation has been controversial. Although in 2018, Deloitte Economic Consulting Company assessed that “64% of the recommendations were fully implemented, 14% were basically implemented, 16% were partially implemented, and 6% were not implemented at all.” Residents and sociologists dismissed the report, calling it “essentially worthless”, believing that the assessment allowed the Australian government to “hide behind the illusion of simply introducing policies and programs, claiming that these policies and programs have solved the problem, but Not accept their impact on the real world”.
