Scotland Yard “initially resisted” the independent police watchdog leading the inquiry into the fatal shooting by police of innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, it was confirmed today.
Contrary to early reports of the shooting, the leaks indicated that Mr de Menezes had done little to arouse suspicion other than to emerge from a block of flats in south London that had been under surveillance.
“There are lies that have been told and lies that have been allowed to remain uncorrected. He was not wearing a bulky jacket … he did not run.”
And an officer already had him in restraint when they shot him seven times in the head. Which seems like cold-blooded unjustifiable murder to me.
