More on Jean Charles de Menezes

In a familiar turn of events (at least, to anyone paying attention to the antics of Irish security/crime/whatever correspondants for the past couple of decades), it is now becoming evident that lies were quickly spun out to journalists to cover for the police killing of the innocent Brazilian on the London Tube last week.

Tom Raftery (in a departure from his usual tech news) has the details, along with a pretty good reason as to why head-shots don't necessarily work.

PS I see Dick Waghorne has now downgraded de Menezes from
"an attempted suicide-bomber"

to being
"wrongly thought to have been one of the dozen or so suspects in the London bombing"

Really? Just which suspect was he "thought" to have been, then?

PPS THIS Old Brit has an intriguing post.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
