I've done one or two decent things in my life,

0:00:020:00:03

but I never flash back to them.

0:00:030:00:04

She's dying. She can't be left alone overnight.

0:00:040:00:07

-The body of Christ.

-Amen.

0:00:070:00:09

Bye, Michael.

0:00:090:00:11

I'm going to pay it all back, every penny.

0:00:110:00:13

The machines in St Nick's are nothing like those in your shops.

0:00:130:00:16

Ours take 10p coins, yours take £10 notes.

0:00:160:00:19

If he doesn't watch my back, then why should I watch his?

0:00:190:00:22

Why should anyone watch his?

0:00:220:00:24

Blinded and killed, Dawn.

0:00:240:00:26

White officer kills black boy on your watch...

0:00:260:00:29

..and you're not over the detail.

0:00:300:00:31

The officer who used the spray says she did so because she feared for Mrs Oyenusi's safety.

0:00:310:00:36

That's not true!

0:00:360:00:38

They're going to lie.

MUSIC: I Think It's Going to Rain Today by Nina Simone

0:00:390:00:42

# Broken windows in empty hallways

0:00:520:00:56

# A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey

0:00:570:01:01

# Human kindness is overflowing

0:01:030:01:08

# And I think it's gonna rain today... #

0:01:080:01:15

This programme contains some strong language

0:01:150:01:22

This time, please.

0:01:290:01:30

Just this once, yeah?

0:01:320:01:34

For on the night He was betrayed, He himself took bread and,

0:01:340:01:38

giving you thanks, He said the blessing...

0:01:380:01:42

..broke the bread and gave it to His disciples, saying,

0:01:430:01:47

"Take this, all of you...

0:01:470:01:49

"..and eat of it,

0:01:500:01:52

"for this is my body

0:01:520:01:54

"which will be given up for you."

0:01:540:01:56

-MOTHER'S VOICE:

-You little horror.

0:01:570:01:59

In a similar way...

0:02:060:02:07

..when supper was ended,

0:02:090:02:11

He took the chalice and giving you thanks,

0:02:110:02:14

He said the blessing...

0:02:140:02:16

..and gave the chalice to His disciples saying,

0:02:180:02:21

"Take this, all of you, and drink of it...

0:02:210:02:26

-A reading from the Holy Gospel...

-CLATTERING

0:02:290:02:31

Shh!

0:02:310:02:32

Six days later...

0:02:360:02:37

"..the blood...

0:02:400:02:41

Have you got something to say for yourself?

0:02:410:02:44

"..of the new and eternal covenant...

0:02:450:02:47

What?

0:02:470:02:48

"..which will be poured out for you

0:02:490:02:51

"and for many for the forgiveness of sins.

0:02:510:02:54

"Do this in memory of me."

TELEVISION: # I took a trip to the year 3000

0:03:050:03:08

# This song had gone multiplatinum... #

0:03:080:03:11

Oh, no.

0:03:110:03:12

# It had outsold... #

0:03:120:03:14

Father Michael.

0:03:140:03:15

# We drove around in a time machine... #

0:03:150:03:17

Hello, Chloe.

0:03:170:03:18

-Hi, Father.

-How are you?

0:03:180:03:21

Fine.

0:03:210:03:23

The boys?

0:03:230:03:25

Fine.

0:03:250:03:26

Leo's missed a lot of school.

0:03:260:03:28

-Has he?

-Yeah.

0:03:280:03:29

I'll talk to him.

0:03:310:03:33

I could murder a cup of tea.

0:03:330:03:34

It's a bit inconvenient right now, Father.

0:03:340:03:36

Look, Chloe, your mam asked me to keep an eye on you.

0:03:400:03:42

I'm going nowhere.

0:03:420:03:44

Hey, Leo, Jake.

0:03:500:03:52

How are you doing for money?

0:03:540:03:55

Mum had pension or insurance or something through work.

0:03:560:03:59

-It starts Friday.

-Till then?

0:03:590:04:01

Well, shall we make a start on this,

0:04:040:04:06

and I'll get you vouchers for the food bank?

0:04:060:04:09

Get there tomorrow - got pizzas.

0:04:090:04:12

I have two things to say to you, members of the jury.

0:04:510:04:54

First, you'll remember that we opened and adjourned this inquest

0:04:540:04:56

pending the findings of the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

0:04:560:04:59

The Commission has decided no action should be taken against any officer

0:04:590:05:02

involved in this case and so this inquest can now resume.

0:05:020:05:06

Second, I'll introduce the various interested parties to you.

0:05:060:05:10

Starting on my left we have Mr Lambert,

0:05:100:05:13

representing Patricia Greaves

0:05:130:05:15

of the North West Mental Health Foundation Trust.

0:05:150:05:18

Mr Marsh representing Rebecca Milton of the North West Mental Health Foundation Trust.

0:05:180:05:23

Miss Hennessy representing Pamela Winderton

0:05:230:05:26

of the North West Mental Health Foundation Trust.

0:05:260:05:29

Mr Fogarty representing Elaine Cosgrove

0:05:290:05:32

of the North West Mental Health Foundation Trust.

0:05:320:05:35

Mrs Ofoeme representing PC Andrew Powell

0:05:350:05:38

of the Low Marsh Police Force.

0:05:380:05:41

Mr Wright representing PC Dawn Morris

0:05:410:05:44

of the Low Marsh Police Force.

0:05:440:05:47

Mr Lloyd representing Police Sergeant Denis Kilcaid

0:05:470:05:51

of the Low Marsh Police Force

0:05:510:05:53

and Mr Newton representing PC Ian Wakefield

0:05:530:05:57

of the Low Marsh Police Force.

0:05:570:05:59

And over here we have Mrs Helen Oyenusi

0:05:590:06:03

representing herself.

0:06:030:06:05

But Eastbrook wasn't all bad. There was Saint Nick's...

0:06:050:06:09

..and Father Michael.

0:06:100:06:12

He and Vernon got on well,

0:06:120:06:14

and I was so grateful for that because...

0:06:140:06:16

..he wouldn't take his medication, you see, unless he trusted you.

0:06:180:06:23

But the sicker he got, the less he trusted you.

0:06:230:06:26

The sicker he got, the more he needed the medicine,

0:06:260:06:30

the less chance of him ever taking it.

0:06:300:06:32

But Father Michael always managed to persuade him.

0:06:320:06:35

Always.

0:06:360:06:38

Had Father Michael been around that night...

0:06:390:06:41

..Vernon would still be alive.

0:06:430:06:44

I know it.

0:06:450:06:47

I am black,

0:06:480:06:50

a Christian and a mother.

0:06:500:06:52

I should therefore forgive everyone involved in the death of my son

0:06:530:06:57

and astonish you all with the strength of my faith.

0:06:570:07:00

I will not play that game.

0:07:010:07:02

I will not forgive people who have not asked to be forgiven.

0:07:040:07:08

I will not forgive people who lied to the IPCC

0:07:080:07:12

and will no doubt lie to this inquest.

0:07:120:07:14

First give me truth and justice,

0:07:160:07:21

and I will think about forgiveness.

0:07:210:07:23

Is there anything else you'd like to say,

0:07:260:07:28

anything you think might be relevant to this inquest?

0:07:280:07:30

-No, sir.

-Thank you, Mrs Oyenusi.

0:07:300:07:33

I think we'll leave it there for today

0:07:330:07:35

and meet tomorrow at ten o'clock.

0:07:350:07:37

I'm sorry, I, erm, I should've warned you, Chloe.

0:08:200:08:24

Could you lend me 20 quid, please?

0:08:340:08:36

Till Friday.

0:08:380:08:39

Anything up to 200 quid goes in the safe,

0:08:430:08:45

anything over 200 quid goes to the bank.

0:08:450:08:47

She gets it the following afternoon...

0:08:470:08:50

Jesus Christ! Fucking hell!

0:08:500:08:52

SHOUTING

0:08:520:08:55

PHONE RINGS

0:08:570:08:59

Hello, Michael Kerrigan.

0:09:020:09:03

Oh.

0:09:060:09:07

Did you lose money on them?

0:09:090:09:10

Could she have done?

0:09:110:09:13

Manager says he's never seen her, so...

0:09:130:09:17

What's your name?

0:09:170:09:18

Your first name, then?

0:09:200:09:22

May I? May I tell them?

0:09:220:09:24

Her name's Chloe Demichelis.

0:09:270:09:28

Her mother was Roz Demichelis.

0:09:290:09:31

She...

0:09:310:09:32

..lost a lot of money on these machines

0:09:330:09:35

and, er...

0:09:350:09:37

she took her own life.

0:09:370:09:39

Why d'you close?

0:09:480:09:50

I thought it was for the best.

0:09:500:09:51

-PAINFULLY:

-Oh, fuck.

0:09:510:09:53

-What's wrong?

-Sciatica.

0:09:530:09:55

They're just machines, Chloe.

0:10:000:10:02

Expensive machines, yes, but they're just machines and

0:10:020:10:04

machines are replaceable. People are not.

0:10:040:10:06

I was really saddened to hear about your mother, Chloe,

0:10:080:10:13

and you have all my sympathy, my love.

0:10:130:10:15

Now, I'm not saying we didn't profit from her losses,

0:10:150:10:18

because we did, but others profited a hell of a lot more

0:10:180:10:21

and you can't say if we'd refused her custom, it would have made

0:10:210:10:24

any difference, cos it wouldn't, Chloe, my love, it wouldn't.

0:10:240:10:28

I was wondering, Officer, if it's all right

0:10:310:10:33

to just forget this ever happened, if that's possible at all?

0:10:330:10:37

I'm sure it is.

0:10:370:10:38

You see, I lost my mother, too, Chloe, when I was very young.

0:10:420:10:45

It was natural causes so a lot less...

0:10:450:10:47

Well, there are no words, are there?

0:10:490:10:51

No words to describe what you've been through

0:10:510:10:53

so we'll just leave it at that - "a lot less..."

0:10:530:10:56

So I understand why you've done this, Chloe.

0:10:570:11:00

I understand it.

0:11:000:11:02

I forgive it.

0:11:020:11:03

It's forgotten.

0:11:030:11:04

We're full but we need to find a bed from somewhere.

0:11:250:11:28

We're a small unit and we know everybody in our care and we don't

0:11:300:11:33

want to send anybody home so my first response was to say, "No."

0:11:330:11:38

So what if a young man's desperately ill?

0:11:380:11:41

He's not one of ours.

0:11:410:11:42

We don't know him, we don't have to see his suffering, so say no.

0:11:420:11:45

But that'd be cowardly and immoral.

0:11:460:11:49

We need to make a decision and there are three possibilities.

0:11:500:11:55

I lied to Helen when I said that Vernon was the least unwell.

0:11:550:12:00

He was ONE of the least unwell.

0:12:000:12:02

But he was certainly the most loved.

0:12:040:12:06

Helen had shown herself to be a wonderful, loving mother...

0:12:110:12:16

..and who could come to any harm going home to a mother such as that?

0:12:170:12:20

That's why we picked Vernon...

0:12:220:12:23

..because he was so loved.

0:12:260:12:27

The noise is going to drive you mad, though, Ryan.

0:12:300:12:33

It's all right when the racing's on, it drowns it.

0:12:330:12:36

But no racing, and it gets to you.

0:12:360:12:40

And when someone wins...

0:12:400:12:41

Oi, you stupid bitch!

0:12:430:12:45

Aitch. She's at it again.

0:12:450:12:47

Fucking hell!

0:12:480:12:49

Right! It's a few home truths for you, sweetheart.

0:12:550:12:58

Lots of people enjoy these machines.

0:12:580:13:00

Yeah, OK, a few sad bastards like your mother get addicted

0:13:000:13:03

but that don't mean you ban them.

0:13:030:13:05

You don't ban booze cos of a few pissheads, do you?

0:13:050:13:07

So you don't ban these cos of a few headcases like your bleeding mother!

0:13:070:13:10

-And what are you bringing her tea for?!

-Look at her.

0:13:100:13:13

She's just destroyed four brand-new machines.

0:13:130:13:15

She needs it.

0:13:150:13:17

So she burns the shop down, what're you going to do, invite her to dinner?

0:13:170:13:20

Jesus!

0:13:200:13:21

I know what you want, sweetheart, and you're not going to get it.

0:13:230:13:26

I am NOT calling the police so you can go all drama queen on us.

0:13:260:13:31

I'm calling a lawyer.

0:13:310:13:33

And he'll take out a restraining order on you

0:13:330:13:36

banning you from all my shops.

0:13:360:13:38

So next time you do your chain-gang thing, you'll go straight to prison

0:13:380:13:42

cos it's not criminal damage any more, it's contempt of court.

0:13:420:13:46

Contempt of court means straight to prison cos you're not

0:13:460:13:48

upsetting little old me, you're upset a High Court fucking judge.

0:13:480:13:52

God bless.

0:13:520:13:53

Will you promise not to do it again?

0:13:570:13:59

What he said was right - contempt of court, you'd go to prison.

0:14:040:14:07

It'll be with you all your life.

0:14:110:14:13

It'll stop you getting jobs.

0:14:130:14:15

Look...

0:14:150:14:16

If I swore to you I'll get him, this bookie...

0:14:170:14:20

will you promise you'll keep away from those machines?

0:14:200:14:23

Are you supposed to say things like that?

0:14:230:14:25

No.

0:14:250:14:26

-Sunday, ten o'clock mass.

-OK.

0:14:280:14:30

Come and see it if you like.

0:14:320:14:34

OK.

0:14:340:14:35

-Would you?

-Do you want a hand...?

-Yeah.

0:14:380:14:40

Here.

0:14:460:14:47

'The Lord be with you.'

0:14:520:14:53

-CONGREGATION:

-And also with you.

0:14:530:14:56

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

0:14:560:14:59

Glory to you, O Lord.

0:14:590:15:00

And Jesus entered the temple of God and cast out all those

0:15:010:15:06

who were buying and selling in the temple and he overturned the

0:15:060:15:09

tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold the doves.

0:15:090:15:14

And he said to them, "It is written. My house shall be called

0:15:140:15:19

"a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves."

0:15:190:15:23

The Gospel of the Lord.

0:15:270:15:28

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

0:15:290:15:31

I love that passage.

0:15:330:15:35

Christ driving the money changers out of the temple.

0:15:360:15:40

In John's version he drives them out with a whip - even better.

0:15:400:15:44

I like it because it shows Christ's humanity.

0:15:440:15:48

Even He was prone to anger.

0:15:480:15:49

Righteous anger.

0:15:500:15:52

As Christians we're meant to try and emulate Christ.

0:15:530:15:57

Are we allowed to emulate that bit?

0:15:570:15:59

Are we allowed a bit of righteous anger?

0:15:590:16:01

I hope so.

0:16:020:16:03

There's a young woman here today, Chloe...

0:16:060:16:09

..whose mother took her own life very recently.

0:16:100:16:14

She got addicted to those machines in the betting shop

0:16:140:16:18

and she stole from her employer and she couldn't live with her shame.

0:16:180:16:22

Does that not make you angry?

0:16:220:16:24

Those machines take up to £100 per spin

0:16:260:16:29

and they spin three times a minute -

0:16:290:16:31

ten times faster than the fastest croupier on the planet.

0:16:310:16:35

So fast, in fact, that if you walked in there with £1,000,

0:16:350:16:38

you'd be skint in less than ten minutes.

0:16:380:16:40

Nobody walks in with £1,000, of course,

0:16:400:16:43

because these machines are in our poorest areas.

0:16:430:16:46

16 in Hallcross Road. Why is that?

0:16:460:16:49

Because if you've only got a fiver to last you the rest of the week,

0:16:490:16:52

it makes eminent sense to gamble it.

0:16:520:16:55

So 16 machines in Hallcross Road, all feeding off our poverty.

0:16:550:16:59

Does that not make you angry?

0:16:590:17:01

And these machines, well, they're a capitalist's dream.

0:17:020:17:05

They don't need food or shelter. They don't need wages.

0:17:050:17:09

You just buy them and line them up against the wall

0:17:090:17:11

and off they go, sucking up our money.

0:17:110:17:14

Our money!

0:17:140:17:16

Money from one of the poorest communities in Western Europe

0:17:160:17:19

given to shareholders living in the rich South East.

0:17:190:17:21

Does that not make you angry?!

0:17:210:17:23

But these ARE just machines.

0:17:250:17:27

Christ, in righteous anger, took a whip to human beings.

0:17:290:17:34

If we, in righteous anger, took a hammer to those machines,

0:17:340:17:38

would we be condemned or applauded?

0:17:380:17:41

CHORAL MUSIC

0:17:480:17:50

I didn't volunteer for armed response, they asked me to join.

0:19:070:19:11

I went away and thought about it for days and went back and said yes.

0:19:110:19:15

And I didn't do it for the kudos because no-one,

0:19:170:19:19

apart from a chosen few, ever knew I was in it.

0:19:190:19:21

And I didn't do it cos I relished the prospect

0:19:220:19:24

of shooting someone - I honestly hoped it would never come to that.

0:19:240:19:28

They asked me if I was sure I could do it -

0:19:290:19:32

shoot someone.

0:19:320:19:33

I said I would only know that if and when it came to it

0:19:340:19:37

and anyone who told you different was a fool

0:19:370:19:39

and shouldn't be in armed response in the first place.

0:19:390:19:41

And now I know of course, I could do it.

0:19:430:19:45

PC Andrew Powell's at the door when I get there,

0:19:450:19:49

but no sooner am I out the car than he's trying to force the door open.

0:19:490:19:52

I don't know why.

0:19:520:19:54

He disappears inside. Vernon Oyenusi comes out

0:19:540:19:57

with his hand to his face like that.

0:19:570:19:58

I now know he'd been sprayed. I didn't know that then.

0:20:000:20:03

Then I thought he'd been punched or he was trying to

0:20:030:20:06

hide his face for some reason.

0:20:060:20:08

He starts shouting, "I'm blind" and he's coming towards me

0:20:080:20:11

waving that knife.

0:20:110:20:12

"I'm blind. I'm blind."

0:20:120:20:14

But if he really is blind, how come he's heading straight for me?

0:20:140:20:17

How come he knows where I am?

0:20:170:20:19

And if he is really blind, that's only going to make it worse

0:20:190:20:21

cos he's waving that knife about and he could cut anybody without even knowing it.

0:20:210:20:25

"Armed police! Put down the knife!"

0:20:260:20:29

You're trained to say it loud and clear. "I will fire".

0:20:300:20:34

They must be in no doubt whatsoever that you will pull that trigger.

0:20:350:20:39

Loud, clear, firm.

0:20:390:20:42

"Put down the knife - I will fire."

0:20:420:20:45

God knows what it sounded like to him

0:20:460:20:48

but in here I'm not loud, clear and firm at all,

0:20:480:20:50

in here I'm begging with him, "Please, please, please stop."

0:20:500:20:55

Armed police! Put down the knife or I will fire!

0:20:550:20:58

He doesn't stop...

0:20:580:20:59

..and I know I'll have to shoot him.

0:21:000:21:02

And the one thing you can't do is miss.

0:21:030:21:05

You miss, you hit an innocent bystander

0:21:050:21:07

so you're trained to aim for the chest.

0:21:070:21:09

Always the middle of the chest.

0:21:120:21:14

-I fire.

-GUNSHOTS

0:21:160:21:18

I meant to fire only the once but the trigger's so sensitive it

0:21:200:21:23

goes off twice and I immediately think people are going to accuse me

0:21:230:21:26

of wanting to finish him off but not at all,

0:21:260:21:30

it just went off twice.

0:21:300:21:31

Is there anything else you'd like to add,

0:21:330:21:35

anything that might be relevant to this inquest?

0:21:350:21:38

Could I say a few words to Mrs Oyenusi?

0:21:380:21:41

Yes, of course.

0:21:410:21:42

I've got kids of my own, Mrs Oyenusi.

0:21:440:21:48

I can't imagine what you're going through.

0:21:480:21:50

I am so, so sorry.

0:21:530:21:54

Hello, Chloe.

0:22:120:22:13

Is this where Mum came?

0:22:180:22:19

Yes.

0:22:190:22:20

What happens when those machines get replaced?

0:22:330:22:36

We smash them up again.

0:22:370:22:39

They'll put you in prison?

0:22:390:22:41

Possibly.

0:22:410:22:42

I don't want that.

0:22:430:22:45

Shall we wage war by other means, then?

0:22:460:22:49

Yeah.

0:22:490:22:51

Please.

0:22:510:22:52

What are you doing?

0:22:590:23:01

It can help.

0:23:020:23:03

It reminds us that Christ is here, sharing the pain.

0:23:040:23:08

Are you still angry with her?

0:23:180:23:20

A bit.

0:23:210:23:22

I thought I'd find her hanging.

0:23:250:23:27

I was dreading that.

0:23:290:23:31

Anything but that.

0:23:320:23:33

I read the boys', as well.

0:23:450:23:47

I thought all the three of them might say the same thing, but they didn't.

0:23:480:23:51

Was it you that phoned the college?

0:23:540:23:56

What makes you think that?

0:23:570:23:58

No-one else knew.

0:23:580:24:00

Dad came.

0:24:010:24:02

Mum had asked him to come and fix a radiator that didn't need fixing.

0:24:040:24:08

Yeah.

0:24:080:24:10

He was supposed to find her body, wasn't he? Wasn't he?

0:24:100:24:14

Look, Chloe, there's things I simply cannot answer.

0:24:140:24:17

She's dead.

0:24:170:24:19

You can tell me now she's dead.

0:24:190:24:21

I can't.

0:24:210:24:23

Mum expected to be at home. You expected her to be at home.

0:24:230:24:26

If she HAD been at home, I would have found her,

0:24:260:24:28

I could have stopped it. Why wasn't she?

0:24:280:24:30

I think she thought I was going to try and stop her

0:24:300:24:32

so she changed her plans at the last minute.

0:24:320:24:35

And you DID try and stop it?

0:24:350:24:37

I can't answer that, Chloe.

0:24:390:24:40

If it had been me, if I'd known what you knew, I'd have stopped it

0:24:420:24:46

cos I never would have left her alone.

0:24:460:24:48

Do you think I didn't do enough?

0:24:500:24:52

Yeah.

0:24:550:24:56

Did you like her?

0:25:000:25:02

Yeah.

0:25:020:25:04

Did she like you?

0:25:040:25:06

I think so.

0:25:060:25:07

Did she flirt with you?

0:25:070:25:08

Yeah, a little.

0:25:080:25:10

She had a way of daring you to tell the truth

0:25:120:25:15

so you wanted to tell the truth.

0:25:150:25:18

Yeah.

0:25:180:25:19

Hey. It's all right.

0:25:220:25:24

It's all right.

0:25:290:25:31

-VOICE MAIL:

-'You're probably fast asleep so never mind.

0:25:320:25:36

'It's just that Vernon wanted a word, didn't you, Vernon?

0:25:360:25:39

'If you play this in the morning, maybe you could phone him, Father.

0:25:410:25:46

'You know what he's like.

0:25:460:25:47

'Doesn't believe a word his mother tells him but everything you say is gospel.

0:25:470:25:52

'No pun intended, Father.'

0:25:520:25:55

-MACHINE:

-'Message deleted.'

0:25:550:25:56

The coroner has... He's asked a few witnesses, right at the end,

0:26:020:26:06

if there's anything else that's relevant to the inquest.

0:26:060:26:10

And if he asks you, are you going to tell him about that?

0:26:110:26:14

Well, yeah, I'll be on oath.

0:26:160:26:17

Will it make any difference to the verdict?

0:26:170:26:20

No.

0:26:210:26:23

So...

0:26:230:26:25

..is it relevant?

0:26:260:26:28

He was ranting and raving well before we put in an appearance.

0:26:330:26:36

So you can't say we ratcheted up the tension by going in there.

0:26:370:26:42

That boy should never have been allowed out of that hospital.

0:26:420:26:45

I hear the nurses saying he was the least unwell.

0:26:450:26:48

If that's the case, I'd hate to see the most.

0:26:480:26:52

There was no way he was calming down.

0:26:520:26:55

On the contrary, he was stoking his anger.

0:26:550:26:58

I've seen it lots of times - a man stoking his anger till he's

0:26:590:27:03

able to do something he'd never contemplate when sober and calm.

0:27:030:27:08

I knew I had to use that spray.

0:27:080:27:10

Had I not used it, we would not be at his inquest today,

0:27:100:27:15

we would be at his mother's.

0:27:150:27:17

I know that Andrew Powell agrees with this because...

0:27:170:27:20

-Shame on you, girl!

-..he started to barge the door...

-Shame on you, girl!

0:27:200:27:24

-..round about the same time...

-Shame on you!

-Mrs Oyenusi!

0:27:240:27:27

-..trying to get at Vernon to restrain him.

-Please.

0:27:270:27:29

I know how hard this is for you but, please, Mrs Oyenusi, you have to let the witness speak.

0:27:310:27:35

The Taser was out of the question because of his clothing.

0:27:350:27:38

I doubt it would have had any effect.

0:27:380:27:40

The truth was they were sending Vernon home even though

0:28:040:28:07

he wasn't well so I can understand them lying at first.

0:28:070:28:12

But they DID go on to tell the absolute truth

0:28:120:28:15

and I respected them for that and I'm sure Helen did as well.

0:28:150:28:19

Is there anything else you'd like to add,

0:28:200:28:23

anything that's relevant to this inquest?

0:28:230:28:25

I was dreading that question.

0:28:290:28:31

IS there something?

0:28:320:28:34

Helen phoned me that night to say that Vernon was ill.

0:28:370:28:40

She got the answering machine...

0:28:420:28:44

..and, erm,

0:28:460:28:48

I was there as she spoke but I didn't pick up.

0:28:480:28:51

It was, erm...

0:28:570:28:59

Well, I'd had a busy day and it was...

0:28:590:29:01

It was late and I was tired.

0:29:050:29:06

Had I gone round there, had I...

0:29:090:29:11

Had I picked up...

0:29:120:29:14

..Vernon might still be alive.

0:29:160:29:18

I swear by Almighty God that the evidence I shall give shall

0:30:170:30:21

be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

0:30:210:30:24

And it's going to cost me.

0:30:270:30:28

Ever since PC Dawn Morris first walked into our nick,

0:30:330:30:37

we've given her stick...

0:30:370:30:40

because she's a woman.

0:30:400:30:41

Ever since PC Dawn Morris first walked into our nick,

0:30:420:30:46

she's had to prove she's as good a copper as any man there.

0:30:460:30:50

And I think it's that that cost Vernon Oyenusi his life.

0:30:520:30:56

When I get there, Vernon's distressed, yes,

0:30:570:31:02

but he's no threat to anyone.

0:31:020:31:04

It's as his mother says -

0:31:050:31:08

he just needs calming down

0:31:080:31:10

and I'm trying to do that until...

0:31:100:31:12

..Dawn and Ian Wakefield suddenly appear behind Vernon...

0:31:150:31:18

..and scare the living shit out of him.

0:31:200:31:22

See, I think Dawn knows there and then she's done the wrong thing...

0:31:230:31:27

..but she can't admit it...

0:31:290:31:30

..because she's a woman in a man's world.

0:31:320:31:35

She's got to get control of the situation,

0:31:350:31:37

prove how decisive she can be.

0:31:370:31:39

So she goes for her spray and that's

0:31:410:31:44

when I start barging the door and it's not to grab Vernon...

0:31:440:31:49

..which is what Dawn said.

0:31:500:31:51

It's to stop Dawn spraying a mentally ill man.

0:31:530:31:56

Now I'm screaming at her not to do it and I know it registers.

0:32:010:32:04

I know she realises...

0:32:060:32:08

.."Shit, this is a big mistake," but what's she going to do?

0:32:090:32:12

She's already got the canister in her hand, she has to use it,

0:32:120:32:15

she has to be decisive.

0:32:150:32:17

So she sprays him...

0:32:200:32:21

..and he blunders out...

0:32:220:32:24

..and we hear two shots.

0:32:260:32:27

It is the most stupid thing...

0:32:320:32:36

..I've ever seen a copper do.

0:32:380:32:39

-You've reached your decisions, I believe.

-Yes.

0:33:160:33:20

How have you answered question number one?

0:33:200:33:23

Did Sergeant Denis Kilcaid act lawfully or unlawfully in shooting Vernon Oyenusi?

0:33:230:33:28

Lawfully.

0:33:280:33:29

Thank you.

0:33:290:33:31

How have you answered question number two?

0:33:330:33:36

Did PC Dawn Morris act lawfully or unlawfully in spraying Vernon Oyenusi?

0:33:360:33:42

Unlawfully.

0:33:420:33:43

Thank you.

0:33:440:33:46

And how have you answered question number three?

0:33:460:33:48

Was Vernon Oyenusi lawfully or unlawfully killed?

0:33:480:33:52

Unlawfully.

0:33:520:33:54

Thank you.

0:33:540:33:56

Thank you, members of the jury for the way you've conducted yourselves

0:33:560:33:59

throughout this difficult, demanding and profoundly moving inquest.

0:33:590:34:04

I'd like you to leave now, but if you could wait in the jury room

0:34:040:34:06

because there is a document each of you has to sign.

0:34:060:34:09

I'd also like to thank the administrative staff for ensuring

0:34:090:34:11

this inquest proceeded as smoothly and as efficiently as it did.

0:34:110:34:15

Thank you.

0:34:150:34:17

And finally, to Mrs Oyenusi, I wish to offer our deepest sympathy

0:34:170:34:22

on the loss of her son.

0:34:220:34:24

Vernon's death certificate will be completed to reflect

0:34:240:34:27

the findings of the jury and will be available to Mrs Oyenusi

0:34:270:34:31

on payment of the appropriate fee. Thank you.

Please say you forgive me.

0:35:350:35:36

Why didn't you tell me?

0:35:380:35:40

I... I couldn't.

0:35:410:35:42

Even when you DID tell the truth you did so only

0:35:440:35:46

because you were too frightened to lie on oath. Yes?

0:35:460:35:49

-Yes.

-You didn't do it for me, you did it for yourself. Yes?

0:35:520:35:55

Yes.

0:35:580:35:59

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

0:36:320:36:36

Amen.

..that I'm not fit to be a priest.

0:39:590:40:00

So at the supreme moment of priesthood,

0:40:030:40:06

the consecration, this...

0:40:060:40:08

..this reminds me of all the dirty, filthy things I have

0:40:090:40:13

done in my life and of all the dirty, filthy things that have been

0:40:130:40:17

done to me and it says, "How dare you think yourself worthy of this!"

0:40:170:40:23

Well, you're not alone.

0:40:260:40:27

You?

0:40:290:40:30

No, but other priests have told me the same thing in the past.

0:40:310:40:36

I'm packing it in.

0:40:380:40:40

I'll wait till me mam dies cos it will break her heart

0:40:400:40:43

but, when she goes, I'm packing it in.

0:40:430:40:45

The woman, Roz, she once said guilt is YOU knowing

0:40:500:40:56

you've done something wrong.

0:40:560:40:58

Shame is EVERYONE knowing.

0:40:590:41:01

How right she was.

0:41:030:41:05

Will you join me?

0:41:170:41:18

I can't.

0:41:250:41:27

Michael!

0:41:270:41:28

I can't.

0:41:310:41:32

This is Michael Kerrigan, Lord, he's a good priest.

0:41:410:41:44

He's quick to forgive others, slow to forgive himself.

0:41:460:41:50

Grant him peace, Lord.

0:41:520:41:53

Amen.

0:41:550:41:56

Thank you.

0:42:020:42:04

-Yeah?

-Sorry to bother you, Christina.

0:42:190:42:22

I'm Andrew Powell. I'm a copper.

0:42:220:42:24

I nicked you once.

0:42:240:42:25

I just wanted to have a quick word with you - it's about Father Michael Kerrigan.

0:42:270:42:30

I'm sorry for how I treated you.

0:42:380:42:40

I don't know what you mean.

0:42:450:42:47

When you were young.

0:42:490:42:50

I still don't know what you mean.

0:42:560:42:58

I was a mess.

0:43:010:43:02

Nerves on edge.

0:43:050:43:06

Mam...

0:43:110:43:12

You've been a wonderful mother.

0:43:140:43:16

That's all that I remember.

0:43:180:43:20

Tell me something nice.

0:43:270:43:28

Right.

0:43:320:43:33

Remember Yaffee - he had that donkey?

0:43:350:43:38

SHE CHUCKLES

0:43:410:43:43

Mam?

0:44:000:44:02

O God, who commanded us to honour our father and mother,

0:44:190:44:25

have compassion on my mother's soul.

0:44:250:44:28

Forgive her her sins

0:44:280:44:30

and grant that I may see her again

0:44:300:44:33

in the joy of eternal brightness...

0:44:330:44:35

..through Christ our Lord.

0:44:370:44:39

Amen.

0:44:410:44:42

Hiya, Beth, it's me.

0:45:010:45:02

She died in the night.

0:45:050:45:06

I'm sorry, Beth. I know.

0:45:070:45:09

I will, I will.

0:45:110:45:13

Bye.

PEOPLE SING KARAOKE

0:46:150:46:17

Kick, rush and threaten everyone.

0:46:250:46:27

-Brian Marwood.

-That's two.

0:46:270:46:29

-What position?

-Outside right.

0:46:290:46:31

-Outside right, my arse.

-You were too slow to play wide right.

0:46:310:46:35

My pace was deceptive, mate.

0:46:350:46:36

Aye, you were slower than you looked.

0:46:360:46:38

Slower than a week in t'nick.

0:46:380:46:40

I bet there's not one man here could live with me over 50 yards.

0:46:400:46:44

Hey, are you listening?

0:46:440:46:45

Not one man here could live with me over 50 yards.

0:46:450:46:48

-Especially you.

-Bollocks.

0:46:480:46:49

-Curran. Terry Curran.

-I once give him ten yards.

0:46:490:46:52

I were six year old!

0:46:520:46:53

All right, then, whoever's man enough, get outside now - 50-yard sprint.

0:46:530:46:57

I could beat you, hopping.

0:46:570:46:58

Aged 50, start from scratch. Anyone above 50, one yard for each year.

0:46:580:47:02

-All right?

-Right!

0:47:020:47:04

Come on, then! Are you men or mouses?

0:47:040:47:06

Right.

0:47:060:47:07

Taking this with me.

0:47:070:47:09

It's beneath me.

0:47:100:47:11

Have you paid in?

0:47:150:47:16

Come on, Eddie, don't muck about!

0:47:170:47:20

Back to that tree.

0:47:200:47:21

Come on, it's pissing down!

0:47:210:47:23

-It's not all here!

-Eddie, man, just start it, will you!

0:47:230:47:26

Just start it!

0:47:260:47:29

On your marks, get set, go!

0:47:330:47:35

-Hangover?

-Yeah.

0:48:380:48:41

When was the last time you had one of them?

0:48:410:48:44

8th of May, 1979.

0:48:440:48:46

Drew 2-2 with Leicester and got relegated.

0:48:470:48:49

Will you be all right for the funeral?

0:48:510:48:55

Father Adrian's doing it.

0:48:550:48:58

What?

0:48:580:49:00

I'm not a priest, Beth. I'm an impostor.

0:49:000:49:02

You're doing it, you prick!

0:49:020:49:05

It was her dying wish.

0:49:050:49:06

MUSIC: A Silent Prayer by Ruth Barrett

0:49:110:49:16

Good morning, all.

0:51:290:51:31

I'd like to thank Father Adrian here

0:51:310:51:34

for letting me conduct this service in his church today.

0:51:340:51:37

And I'd like to welcome you all.

0:51:380:51:41

Especially the, er, Kerrigan clan,

0:51:440:51:47

many of whom haven't been to mass for years...

0:51:470:51:51

..so they're probably wondering whether they can take communion or not.

0:51:520:51:56

You can.

0:51:560:51:57

I'll give a general absolution during the service

0:51:580:52:02

so there's nothing stopping you.

0:52:020:52:04

Please take it.

0:52:060:52:07

It would mean so much to me

0:52:080:52:10

and to Mam.

0:52:100:52:12

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

0:52:180:52:23

-Amen.

-The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God

0:52:230:52:27

and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

0:52:270:52:30

And with your spirit.

0:52:300:52:31

As we prepare to celebrate the mystery of Christ's love,

0:52:330:52:37

let us call to mind our sins.

0:52:370:52:39

The times I resented having to visit our mam.

0:52:430:52:46

The times I did it out of duty rather than love.

0:52:500:52:53

Oh, how that hurts today.

0:52:550:52:56

For on the night He was betrayed, He himself took bread...

0:53:000:53:05

..and giving you thanks...

0:53:090:53:10

..He said the blessing...

0:53:120:53:13

..broke the bread...

0:53:140:53:16

..and gave it to His disciples, saying,

0:53:170:53:20

"Take this, all of you...

0:53:200:53:23

"..and eat of it.

0:53:250:53:26

"For this is my body

0:53:270:53:29

which will be given up for you."

In a similar way...

0:53:410:53:43

..when supper was ended...

0:53:440:53:46

..He took the chalice...

0:53:480:53:49

..and, giving you thanks...

0:53:530:53:54

..He said the blessing...

0:53:560:53:58

..and gave the chalice to His disciples, saying...

0:54:010:54:05

"Take this, all of you, and drink from it...

0:54:080:54:12

"..for this is the chalice of my blood,

0:54:130:54:18

"the blood of the new and eternal covenant which

0:54:180:54:22

"will be poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.
