The man shot dead yesterday at Stockwell Tube station "was not linked with the terrorist bombing inquiry"

| | TrackBacks (1)

The man who was shot yesterday on the Tube train at Stockwell, yesterday was not "linked to the terrorist bomb inquiry".

We said

"We really hope that they have shot, and presumably killed, the right man"

The Metropolitan Police have "expressed regret", at the killing.

It is not clear if the shooting was actually done by Metropolitan Police officers or by army or other personnel. The Metropolitan Police statement on Friday implied that it was Metropolitan police Officers who were involved

"A man was challenged by officers and was subsequently shot."

"As is routine, officers from the Met's Directorate of Professional Standards have been informed."

The man apparently emerged from a block of flats which was under surveillance, and his thick winter coat and hHis racial appearance seem to have made him into a suspect. The fact that he ran away from the team of 3 people who were following him , and was chased onto a Tube train, presumably contributed to him being pinned to the floor and shot 5 times as a suspected suicide bonber posing an imminent threat to life.

What is going on ?

Will there be more trigger happy killings of innocents ?

Will a future suicide bomber who is cornered by police succeed in detonating his bomb because the police or others are inhibited from taking swift action as a result of this killing ?

The fact that this man was not one of the wanted bombers must have been obvious yesterday, why has it taken so long for the tragic mistake to be acknowledged ?

The press briefings claimed that this man was a suspected terrorist, with hints that he was actually one of the four wanted suspects.

Why were they lying to us ?

Why has there been no update of the Metropolitan Police website with the press release which the mainstream TV media have been broadcasting.

A Sky news reporter is now adding back sttory details, claiming that the block of flats under surveillance was under suspicion because of documentation found in one of the failed rucksack bombs.

The worrying bit of his report is the claim that the suspect was allowed to get onto a Bus !

Why was he not challenged before he got onto a Bus , if they thought he was a suicide bomber ?

Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers

There are many good people trapped in the bureaucracies which run London. If you are thinking about blowing the whistle on shadowy and powerful people in Government or commerce, and their dubious policies then you need be very careful these days. The mainstream media and bloggers also need to take simple precautions to help preserve the anonymity of their sources e.g.

The Evening Standard newspaper - fulfills its role by scrutinising the Mayor and the GLA etc. rather more effectively than the politicians and bureaucrats do.
