the police need semi automatics because... [Jul. 18th, 2006|02:21 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |rrf-common sense?]

...they can't shoot an innocent man 7 times in the head without them.

another snow job

no big surprise there then.

the whole incident sucks from top to bottom:

why was a brazilian national indentified as a potential suicide bomber?
(national security prevents us from knowing what a fuck up they made of that of course apart from the fact that some genius thought 'the suspect' had 'mongolian eyes')

why did the police let a potential suicide bomber
a) leave his house?
b) get on a bus?
c) get on a train?

and why hasn't anyone in the police service ever heard of a dead man's switch?

i actually feel kind of sorry for the two poor saps that got the code red to
pump a man, on his way to repair a burgular alarm, full of lead.

'lessons have been learnt' i sincerely hope so
i somehow doubt it

But then the met is still being taken to court again on Health and Safety grounds about it.

I know those guys feel no better for what they did.

They were doomed if they did and doomed if the didn't.

I looked up this incident, a few days ago. I knew the anniversary was coming up. I guess I was wondering what the stance was on it. I couldn't find anything new. it still sucks..

thanks for the follow-up
