Letter: We should be outraged about Myles Gray's death

A Burnaby neighbour speaks out.
The death of Myles Gray was the subject of a coroner's inquest in Burnaby.


The tragic death of Myles Gray happened in my neighbour's yard, when we were all away from home.

Their yard was deeply blood stained.

The jury in Burnaby needs to face the fact that the police officers beat a young man to death over an argument where he sprayed someone with a hose.

Myles' death was worse than George Floyd. The world was outraged by his death, and we should be about the death of Myles Gray.

The Vancouver police need to take responsibility for their brutal actions.

Editor's note: A coroner's jury released its verdict May 1, classifying Myles Gray's death as a homicide.
