Palm Island and indigenous deaths in custody from Australia Talks

The death of the Palm Island man now known as Mulrunji in the Palm Island watchhouse in 2004 was a tragedy for the family and community and put the issue of Indigenous deaths in custody back on the national agenda. In June 2007, police officer Chris Hurley was found not guilty of manslaughter and assault: charges which arose from Mulrunji's death. On Monday´s program, Anthony Funnell will revisit the circumstances of the case with authors Chloe Hooper and Jeff Waters, lawyer Andrew Boe and academic and activist Gracelyn Smallwood. The discussion will also address what developments there have been in managing the extent of indigenous deaths in custody since.
