Justice delivered by police thugs or is it natural causes?

With the track record of the Police dept its hard to imagine he died of natural causes.

I think he fell sick and died when he realized there were no hooks on the roof of his cell.

Usually only politician suspects fall sick and go to hospital. Was he a politician? However, when a death of an ordinary suspect occurs, naturally the Police Department has to be blamed. This was not the first or the last: IGP, over to you please!!!
