#5 BLM - Sheku Bayoh

In this month's episode of our Black Lives Matter series, we discuss the death of Sheku Bayoh in the Scottish town of Kirkcaldy. Sheku died after he was pepper-sprayed and restrained by 4 police officers in 2015. The police cover-up, scandal and public inquiry that followed has made Sheku's death one of Scotland's most notorious cases.

This is Sheku's story.
