Deputy Coroner asks Police to Reconsider Conduct in Chapman’s case

Deputy Coroner Ian Treloar West, who was reviewing the case of the police handling in the matter of schizophrenic man Jason Kenneth Chapman from Yarraville, has presented his report. After knowing about the details, he has reached at a conclusion that there is a need that the police should re-consider its conduct in the case.

Chapman lost his life, as he was shot dead by police in 2004. While talking about the entire incident, it was found that Chapman came out of his home with a large knife and was threatening nearby people.

He also threatened the police on its arrival. The police was of the view that it warned Chapman to put down his knife, but he did not drop. Police said that they tried to threaten him with capsicum spray, as he was threatening them and local people.

When he ran after them then they had to fire the bullet, which hit his chest. West was of the view that the police should have raised an alarm, as should have cordoned the place, before the firing. This is the reason that he has asked the police to reconsider his conduct in the case of Chapman.
