The killing of this innocent Brazilian electrician raises two distinct areas of concern. The first is the operation itself; the second is the response to the tragedy by Sir Ian Blair
No one now disputes that the killing of Mr Menezes was the result of a series of police misjudgments.
On the day of the shooting, the Met released a statement that the suspect's "clothing and behaviour added to our suspicions". In fact, Mr Menezes was not wearing a padded jacket, did not jump over the ticket barrier and possibly did not know that he was being followed until the gun was fired.
Sir Ian may well have been unaware of the true situation when the statement was issued. But, even if that is the case, why did he allow the claim about jumping the ticket barrier to go unchallenged for so long, together with specious "explanations" for this non-event put about by official sources?
This business has the makings of one of the worst blunders in the history of the Metropolitan Police. The IPCC report must tell us whether Sir Ian knowingly allowed his officers to mislead the public. If he did, it is hard to see how he can remain in his post.
Остается догадаться с одного раза, выступила бы сама лондонская полиция с опровержением своей первоначальной истории, не просочись документы в ITV News. И почему они вообще должны так сложно "просачиваться"?
