Radio as an allegory for Christ

During Radio’s tragic death scene, I was struck by how closely Radio physically resembelled the classic image of Jesus on the cross. With his arms held outstretched by police, and his head upturned in a choke-hold, the visual style of the scene clearly depicts Radio as a Christ like character. Similarly the after effects from the other characters in their rightous rebellion against the authority that has killed Radio harkens to the bible and the uprising against Roman authority.
