Brazilian shot 8 times by London police

A Brazilian man mistakenly killed last week by London anti-terrorist police was shot eight times, Britain’s Independent Police Complaints Commission said Monday.

Asked if his family was taking legal action, de Menezes’ cousin Alex Alves Pereira said the police had to pay for the mistake.

“They have to pay for that in many ways, because if they do not, they are going to kill many people, they are going to kill thousands of people,” Pereira told BBC television.

“They just kill the first person they see, that’s what they did.”

“They killed him because they had to show off. If they were so afraid of a bomb why did they let him get on the bus?
