Time to realise these are not games.

Thanks but it is early.

I meant time for these youths to realise they arent playing games. Its not a case of "come with us sonny" and a 'herioc' rise to infamy.

I heard on BBC news on XMRadio that some journalists are asking "why did they have to shoot him dead and not just wound him"...

Police said, he was acting suspisicous on CCTV
Eye witnesses heard police give him warnings
Eye witnesses said "He jumped the barrier" went confronted
Eye witnesses said he ran down the stairs and boarded a train.

If he was innocent, then tough shit - any innocent person would have stood still and put their hands up.

Police have to shoot in the head/neck since any explosives on the body could blow up.

Other witnesses said he was a "big asian guy" (big thick jacket) - you don't see many young fat asian guys either...

The sky new report was worrying ..it states

" Three eyewitnesses were taken to a nearby veterinary surgery by police before being taken away for interview.

I supposed their paws needed attention..

If they shot to wound him, would you really want a possible bomber taking up valuable space in a British hospital when there are so many others deserving of the service the hospitals provide. Nah, they got it right with the shoot to kill.

What if he didn't speak English and thought he was just being chased by three suspicious looking guys? I imagine they meant Middle Eastern instead of Asian since most people would read Asian = Oriental? I don't give much for the chances of any Middle Eastern looking people in London this winter.....

Anyone who runs away from an armed policeman(no matter what country) is either a fool or he is dead.

If you wound the bugger he can still set off the bomb.

If he's dead then he doesnt have the option.
