Guess he shouldn't have run.
Well yeah. Makes you wonder wtf the guy was thinking, given the circumstances.
Exactly. If you have nothing to hide, there's no reason to run, unless you just wish to test your skills dodging bullets. Obviously, this guy's skills in that arena sucked.
Too bad he's dead, but it's more than just running. Why did he have an oversized warm jacket on in London's warm season, with high humidity? What was he doing in a house under surveillance, if he had NOTHING to do with the bombings? Police identified themselves, then he ran...
ITA. The self-centered bunch don't think they should be incovenienced by using common sense; especially, when emotions are running on afterburners. Acting suspiciously can have dire consequences during such times, and right or wrong, this guy is dead becuase his judgement sucked.
I just heard that the Brits are not rolling back on the "shoot to kill" order regarding suspected bombers. Hope they can stay with that. Funny thing, the people seem to be backing them, with a 'mistakes can happen in split second decisions.' The police have explained the headshots, since the more common 'chest/abdomen shots' could trigger a bomb.
Any person shot running from the "bobbies" is the right person to get shot.
A royal ulster constabulary superintendant once told me "Its better to do 12 years than go six feet under".We lived by that rule untill we learned how precious a plastic bullet can be.Then our motto was "If in doubt, give em some plastic".Worked for us.
Note to self:
Do not live in same building with terrorists.
Do not wear heavy coat in the middle of a heatwave.
Do not run from cops into a subway station shortly after a terrorist attack.
