The coroners verdict was suicide, and he did not hold anybody responsible for his death!
What tragedy, when a young boy can commit suicide in an offenders institution, when he should never have been locked up.

The overview of his case, is that he showed emotional problems, and had contemplated suicide, he bottled a 28yo man, but he himself had no previous history of violent behaviour, he did have a history of seeking to take his own life.

You can make your own mind up, but Adam seems to have been abused or seriously hurt by this man, and abused by authority not recognizing his plight. We have already made inroads on this in the UK system, please do your bit,

never mind! I thought this was the first post in the thread but as it turns out, it's the first one on page 2. Heck, they didn't make me a mod for nothing! (he turns red in embarrassment)

Your posts on the system always grieve me and send chills up and down me. But the reason is I can see you are right. I am so sorry - and angry - that you had to go through this. But thanks for being here and thanks for your courage in sharing your insights with us. I know it can't be easy.

Much love,
Larry
