Ms Dhu killed by negligence and racism – dragged, carted and dumped to her death | The Stringer

Ms Dhu was dragged and carted to the pod of a police vehicle. Ms Dhu was dumped into the pod like some would say “a dead kangaroo” and shut inside, alone. No police officer demonstrated the common sense or compassion to ride with her in the back of the van where likely her last breaths were taken. There is no doubt that the police contributed to the death of Ms Dhu, be it by a combination of neglect, stupidity and racism. I was at the first day of the coronial inquest this morning before catching a flight to Canberra.Coroner Ros Fogliani heard from counsel assisting the coroner, Ilona O’Brien, that Ms Dhu died of a staphylococcus infection, pneumonia and septicaemia.
