Shot man not linked to terror attacks : A BRAZILIAN man shot dead by armed police on Friday was innocent, police have said.The Brazilian government has now demanded an explanation of why Jean Charles De Menezes was killed on a Tube train at Stockwell station. British diplomats are expected to meet with officials of the South American country today.
Eric has a good account of the tragedy from the UK Times online.
From emailer Jay: " Yesterday morning on "Fox News Live" ( I filled that in ) was basically saying that the Brazilian that the london police shot and killed was actually all part of Al Quaeda's plan to dress up Brazilian's and other tan-skinned people and have them run from the police and get shot just to make us look bad. Amazing that Fox always manages to justify anything the U.S. or British do, even when there are MISTAKES made!! ( rush transcript )
Take a look. (I'm sorry I don't have more of the video clip to play or the guest's name.)
Is this the sickest analysis you ever heard?
