Fucking disgraceful

oval

So, as I’m typing this I’m listening to a Channel 4 news report about information that’s been leaked to them from the independent enquiry into Jean Charles de Menezes’ shooting in Stockwell Tube Station last month.

And the information that has been leaked?

  • JCM was not wearing a bulky jacket.
  • JCM checked through the ticket barrier using his travel pass at a walking pace and even stopped to pick up a free newspaper.
  • He was followed and executed, I’m going to start using that word now, by officers in civilian clothes, not in uniforms. No warnings were issued before he was butchered.
  • In spite of early stories put about that the CCTV in Stockwell wasn’t working (sounds familiar?) it was functioning. The execution and the events leading up to it are on film

Where do you start? Everything we were told is a lie. The official story is now undoubtedly going to be the tired old ‘failure of intelligence’ crap but that won’t explain where the officers who slaughtered JCM thought he was concealing his explosives. Up his arse somewhere?

Nor does it explain why all those lies about what happened were put about with official sanction; including that of the Head of the Metropolitan Police, Ian Blair. He is either a liar or a buffoon. All that crap about his officers having to act in a matter of a split second and that their decision would be vindicated is just that, crap.

Someone should sack him but that almost certainly won't happen. His nose is so far up Tony Blair's rear end he's indispensible.

Fucking, fucking disgraceful.

One thing does seem to be true - that is Ian Blairs assertion that the execution was directly related to the investigation.

That is true - THEY ARE BOTH FULL OF CRAP.
