The family of Aboriginal man Styles King, who died after being restrained by security guards outside a pub in 2013, say they're "beyond gutted" following a coronial inquest into his death.
In delivering his findings on Friday, coroner Greg Cavanagh said that the level of training to become a bouncer was inadequate. But even with a high level of training, Cavanagh conceded that there would always be issues with security guards.
The distraught King family believes the former security guard got off "scot-free" after details of Hoermann's violent past emerged during the inquest. Kamahi strongly believes that Hoermann would have been convicted if the victim was non-Indigenous.
