A statement released by Scotland Yard regarding this morning's "London
Terror" raid "proves" not only that they are clueless, but that
they verify intelligence by conducting armed raids of residences at un-Godly
hours of the morning and shooting at startled inhabitants.
WOW. This was passed even before 9/11. They were prepared beforehand.
morning, shortly before 4am, the Metropolitan Police executed a search
warrant at a house in Lansdown Road, Forest Gate, East London. The warrant
had been issued for the search of those premises under the authority of the
Terrorism Act 2000.
This operation was planned in response to specific intelligence.
As always, our overriding concern is for the safety of the public. Because
of the very specific nature of the intelligence, we planned an operation that
was designed to mitigate any threat to the public either from firearms or
from hazardous substances.
Like the kind
of intelligence that led to the Iraq invasion?
Some officers were armed, and others equipped with protective clothing.
In planning the operation we worked closely with other agencies including
the Security Service, the Health Protection Agency, the London Ambulance Service
and Fire Brigade, and the London Borough of Newham.
You will appreciate that I am not in a position to discuss details
of the intelligence with you. However, what I can tell you is that
the intelligence was such that it demanded an intensive investigation and
Notice how no one is ever in the position to discuss the "details of intelligence"
until of course it's thoroughly discredited by obvious facts.
The purpose of the investigation, after ensuring public safety, is
to prove or disprove the intelligence that we have received. This
is always difficult, and sometimes the only way to do so is to mount an operation
such as that which we carried out this morning.
So, the public is supposed to accept the fact that in order to verify
intelligence, police must conduct armed raids of their residences at ridiculous
hours in the morning.
During the course of the operation, a 23-year-old man who was in
the premises received a gunshot wound. The circumstances of this
are being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission, and
it would therefore be inappropriate for me to make any further comment about
He "received" a gunshot wound? They make it sound
like it was delivered anonymously by mail.
And he probably "received it" for being shocked and outraged at the
invasion of his privacy by a fleet of armed men at 4 in the morning. How would
I can tell you that the injured man has been taken to the Royal London Hospital
where he has received treatment. He has also been arrested on suspicion
of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation
of acts of Terrorism.
Adding insult to injury, they arrested him to give the appearance that they
shot at him legitimately.
Another man, aged 20, who was in the premises at the time of the operation
has also been arrested under the Terrorism Act, and is being
held at Paddington Green Police Station.
The only other witness must also be isolated from the public.
The investigation, to prove or disprove the intelligence that prompted
the operation, continues. As always this will be thorough, and one
part of it will be a painstaking search of the premises in Landsdown Road.
This has started, but may take some time, in all probability several
days to complete.
Good PR takes time. Your patience is appreciated as much as it is mandatory.
Cowboy UK Police Shoot Another Unknown 'Terror Suspect'
De Menezes lessons not learned, again proves shoot first, ask questions
later policy still active

Planet.com | June 2 2006
Today's news that British police almost killed another unnamed alleged "terror
suspect" in London under the shoot first, ask questions later policy proves
that the lessons of the brutal murder of Charles De Menezes have been completely
Police raided the family home, a family described as "respectable
and "nice people" by neighbors, in the middle of the night and
shot a 23-year-old man in the shoulder.
If the bullet had been three inches higher this would have been 'De Menezes
2' and another unprovoked targeted assassination by London Metropolitan Police.
As per usual, the identity of the suspects and the nature of their alleged
crime is completely unknown at this time.
Maybe their crime was to own a vehicle or a house, two of the benchmarks of
terrorism according to the Metropolitan police, who launched a poster
campaign to encourage Londoners to report on their neighbors.
We are expected to place our trust in the reasoning of the same people who
chased and gunned
down Charles De Menezes, a completely innocent man who didn't even show
signs of suspicious behavior, shortly after the London bombings last year.
Occasional 'terror raids' in which anonymous people are snatched in the middle
of the night and disappeared create a chilling effect that Blair's government
needs to stem the tide of dissent.
Police battered down the door at 6am and ripped
apart a Reading landlady's home because a Pakistani suspect they were looking
for had once rented a room from her.
New glorification of terrorism legislation is so broadly and loosely defined
that this writer could be vanished by the thought police for disagreeing with
the government's version of events for an event like the 7/7
of the 700 plus individuals grabbed from their own homes have ever been charged
with a terrorist offence under the 2000 Terrorism Act yet the endless 'terror
raids' are inflated and characterized by the media as proof that Britain is
under constant threat and that evil terrorists are lurking in people's neighborhoods.
In March, the Association of Chief Police Officers in Britain concluded
in its inquiry that the shoot to kill policy which was carried out in the
murder of Jean Charles de Menezes was acceptable and should not be altered.
Since de Menezes' behavior gave no sign whatsoever that he was a potential suicide
bomber, this was a strong statement of intent.
What is the message being sent?
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.
We will wait to discover what dastardly deed these dangerous terrorists were
planning, and if it was similar in nature to the fearsome plan to bomb
Manchester United's football ground or the fabled plot
to poison the underground with Ricin.
Both these schemes were of course completely dreamed up creations of British
intelligence and Tony Blair's government, released at politically opportune
times to scare
the British public into supporting wars and selling their own freedom down
