De Menezes murder cover-up continues

The Association of Chief Police Officers in Britain has concluded in its inquiry that the shoot to kill policy which was carried out in the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes is acceptable and should not be altered. Since de Menezes' behavior gave no sign whatsoever that he was a potential suicide bomber, this is a strong statement of intent.

Leaked photographic and police evidence of de Menezes' appearance and actions on the day of July 22 confirm that no police officer with an ounce of common sense would suspect de Menezes to be a suicide bomber.

This means that de Menezes was directly targeted, tracked and gunned down for another reason.

What that reason may be remains subject to speculation. His work as a freelance electrician could be connected to the original explanation that the bombs that ripped through three underground stations were the result of electrical surges. De Menezes could have been the '5th bomber' - set up by British intelligence as a patsy like the other four, but changed his mind and escaped when he realized what was unfolding. That knowledge would have been more than enough to mandate his assassination, as he could have blown the whistle on the entire inside job.

There can be little doubt that the evidence proving that the police knew de Menezes was no suicide bomber was deliberately leaked to send a very clear threat to the British people. The government can order targeted assassinations on the streets of Britain at any time. Stop asking questions, shut up and behave yourselves.

Leaked photos from the police investigation directly contradicted suspicious early eyewitness testimony, which was later connected to the police itself, saying that de Menezes was wearing a heavy jacket with wires trailing from it. De Menezes was wearing a light denim jacket and there were no wires to be seen.

Original reports that de Menezes was running through the station and had vaulted barriers were proven to be fraudulent by CCTV footage which showed de Menezes walking at a casual pace, picking up a free newspaper, and passing through the barriers normally.

This CCTV footage was originally said to be missing due to a fault according to the Metropolitan Police. After the London Underground went public to say that there was no fault and that the footage existed, the police had to change their story and admit that the footage did exist. This was a blatant attempt to hide the fact that de Menezes' behavior aroused no suspicion.

De Menezes was shot at least eight times, seven in the head. The police certainly wanted to make sure that he was dead.

Did they want to make sure he was dead because he was about to detonate a bomb? The officers who shot De Menezes KNEW he wasn't a threat at the time they accosted him.

A police source said: "There is no way those three guys would have been on the train carriage with him [de Menezes] if they believed he was carrying a bomb. Nothing he did gave the surveillance team the impression that he was carrying a device.''

Despite the fact that all the evidence points to a monumental cover-up, I have no doubt that the ongoing Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation of the shooting, just like Lord Stevens' phony Diana inquiry, will absolve the Metropolitan Police and Ian Blair of all blame and re-affirm its support of the shoot to kill policy.

Let's play devil's advocate and say that there was no cover-up, that the shooting was just a botched job as a result of incompetence. Then why has nobody been fired? Why is the Association of Chief Police Officers still backing the shoot to kill policy? They are making a statement.

We are the bosses, we are in control. We can carry out targeted assassinations on British soil and there's not a damn thing you can do about it apart from sit down and shut up. Otherwise you just might become the next target of her Majesty's secret death squad.
