Do you have sympathy for this person who refused repeated contact by the benefits system and starved to death?

    Of course, clearly he was unwell.

    But where were his family?

    Why is it always the responsibility of the state to pick up the slack when the family does not bother?

    ‘His daughter-in-law Alison Turner said it was "heartbreaking... it's horrific for someone to die like that."’

    Too true, where was she?

     No he repeatedly refused help. If he was so bad he should have been sectioned into a mental health hospital. With all the latest gadgets he had according to the photos he wasn't that mental just lazy and wouldn't find work.

    • the pic is from the 80's or 90's - he is surrounded by sports trophies, indicating that he could not possibly of been a lazy person.  He was probably someone who came alive on a sportsfield, but struggled to fit in to normal life.

    Of course, he was mentally ill and incapable of taking care of himself.

      He had an uncaring family.

    Of course I do, only a psychopath wouldn't, but would you have asked this question if it was a white English person?

    So you’ve come on here to highlight a tragic story about an unfortunate man, show your lack of compassion, blame the victim and as good as say you’re glad he’s dead because he was black.

    It's tragic. What's your knowledge seeking question?

    Of course I have sympathy for this death, the man had problems, ignored because of the way the agencies work, he died of neglect by the state... Dianne will have no sympathy however because Dianne is a foul person...

      Neglect by his family! If he had complied with benefit rules his money would not have been stopped.

    Of course.   BUT he had a daughter-in-law so presumably a son.   How could they have allowed this to happen?   He weighed less than my hound!!   Clearly this man should have had some kind of family back up??

    It’s just another “care in the community” disaster more than anything. The community obviously doesn’t care and it’s very limited what anybody can do in these cases.

    His daughter in law was mentioned. Was there no one in the family who could have intervened?

      Exactly, Cheesy! At the end of the day his family are guilty, not the government, but I do think these people should be rounded up and placed in mental institutions.
