police murdered unarmed suspect in tube shooting

22-07-2005 14:35

Worst fears come true. Killer cops shot dead an asin man this morning execution style after following him from his home and allowing him to enter a tube train full of passengers before tackling him to the ground then firing five bullets into his head at point blank range.

Early speculation was that the man had a bomb under his jacket but it has now been confirmed that he was completely unarmed. While some of the media is saying the man look suspcious because of his jacket, anyone who was out this morning will know that it is actually rather chilly.

This man should have been stopped and arrested in the street is he was suspected of being a bomber, not allowed to enter the tube and killed while restrained by cops.

East London Mosque Incident

22-07-2005 11:52

Heard the Mosque was surrounded by armed police so headed down there pretty quick. When I arrived the police were just removing police tape and getting back in their vans. I wandered around to find out what had gone on and found somebody at the news enterance at the front talking to a local asian journalist. I got a few shots of the front of the building, a couple of cops and then the press pack arrived in force. They quickly surrounded the guy being interviewed and a media scum frenzy began with lots of pushing and shoving which was quite funny because this man was just saying he had only just got there and that it was just a false alarm anyway, nothing had happened, just some hoax bomb threat called in by phone. Poor guy was swamped simply cause there was nothing left to film.

The right for abortion should be expanded worldwide. But G.W. Bush does his best to make it more difficult for woman to have acces to this aspect of health care.
By nominating John G. Roberts(catholic, antichoice, conservative) for the US supreme court he tries to disturb the balance between liberals and conservatives. If the senat will accept Roberts as a suppreme judge abortion will become more difficult in US for the following decennia
