The family of a disabled Ugandan drug lord who had his carer killed because they feared he knew too much are threatening to sue the health service after the gangster died. Clifford Denty was given round-the clock treatment on the NHS after he was left paralysed in a nightclub shooting. No expense was spared for the Ugandan immigrant. Thousands of pounds of taxpayers money was spent converting his council property and he was provided with a team of carers and given a converted Mercedes under a Government scheme. But, although he was confined to a wheelchair, Denty continued his drug dealing activities. When his main carer, Curtis Smith, realised the extent of his illicit activities, Denty and his brother Andrew decided he had to be silenced. Andrew Denty shot Mr Smith repeatedly in the head. The NHS withdrew Clifford Dentys care and said if he wanted further help he would have to move into a residential home. He refused and stayed in the family home. In October last year, he died in his sleep from pneumonia and blood poisoning. Astonishingly, despite £1.5million of taxpayers money spent on Dentys care, his family are threatening to sue the NHS for negligence. The familys lawyer yesterday said: In this case care wasnt up to scratch. There was a feeling Clifford didnt get a fair crack of the whip. Andrew Denty, 33, is serving a life term for the murder of Dentys carer, while his brother Ricky was recently released from a jail term for gun running and is now fighting deportation. Clifford Dentys death exposed the underworld life enjoyed by him and his brothers which appears to have started shortly after their mothers death in 1992. Joyce Denty had arrived from Uganda. She claimed, and was granted asylum, and settled in Streatham.

I’m still waiting for the day that someone sues using the ADA act that a store wasn’t wheelchair accessible for a disabled looter, and that their security measures should take into account looters who are wheelchair bound and unable to step across thresholds or through broken windows and doors.
I read carer as “career” for some reason.
I would have Americanized it to “caretaker” but I couldn’t afford the letters - Daily Mail likes to put a whole paragraph in its titles.
The horrors of NHS in the UK don’t even exist in the US media.
This might as well be happening on another planet.
Why didn’t they stick the evil cad in prison?
