Memo from NYPD to London Metropolitan Police: Carry spare sidearms…

Filed under: — site admin @ 12:06 pm

Ian Blair is meeting with an inappropriate level of public outrage (read: too little) after revelations that Jean Charles de Menezes, the unfortunate Brazilian electrician who found himself the test case for the Metropolitan Police’s “shoot-to-kill” policy, was not wearing a heavy padded jacket, running from police, or jumping the turnstyle as had been previously reported. Video surveillance shows that de Menezes entered the Tube after grabbing a newspaper and sat down calmly before being grabbed by police and shot eight times (seven times in the head).

No doubt the Metropolitan Police are hoping for a judicial miracle of King-sized proportions…
