Rigg's family cries for justice after his death in UK police custody
The family and friends of a man who died in police custody are calling for charges to be brought against the responsible officers and institutions . Sean Rigg and other victims of deaths in custody were remembered at a packed memorial service in south London.
There will now be an investigation into Sean's death by the police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission. This despite there being 1433 deaths after 'contact' with the police since 1990 and not a single conviction of an officer. The family still has more questions and is taking the fight even further.
The Rigg family knows their struggle will continue to inspire others and will not give up until the entire system is reformed.
