Shocking institutional racism highlighted by new inquest into Aboriginal death in Australia.

This week, an inquest into the death of an Aboriginal man in custody is underway at Sydney’s Downing Centre in Australia.

David Dungay Jr was a mentally ill 26-year-old who suffered from Type 1 diabetes. He was being held at the Long Bay mental health ward. It’s claimed that, on 29 December 2015, a dispute broke out. Dungay ‘insisted’ on eating biscuits, and when told to stop he didn’t comply.

Five officers then forcibly restrained and injected him with a sedative. Within an hour, he was dead.
