Mikey's CaseThe Powell family have announced the final annual candlelight vigil to be held in memory of Mikey Powell who was killed in police custody in 2003.

Mikey died after police knocked him down with a patrol car, discharged more than four times the recommended amount of CS spray on both Mikey and his friend, and hit him with a police baton. Up to eight officers held him down on the ground for at least 16 minutes and then took him to a police station and not a hospital. Mikey’s Case >
