23-07-2005 22:01With the confirmation from the police that they shoot and killed an innocent man unconnected to the bomb attacks last thursday, a vigil has been organised to protest against state sanctioned murder and the shoot-to-kill policy.
23-07-2005 16:50Fuck it's true. Cops really did shoot and kill a man who not only was unarmed and not carrying a bomb but was actually not even connected to the terror attacks.
The man was followed by police from a block of flats that was under surveillance, chased onto the tube then pinned down while police fired five bullets into his head at point blank range.
The Metropolitan Police Service have now admitted he was not connected to the failed bombing on Thursday and have described the shooting as a "tragedy" that the service "regrets".
It was also revealed that the driver of the train was chased by cops and had a gun pointed at his head as he tried to flee the scene.
great... trigger happy cops and bombers on the underground - I'll stick to my bike thanks.

23-07-2005 16:22The driver of the train which was the scene of a brutal police slaying on friday morning was himself chased by armed terror police who held a gun to his head as he tried to get away from terrifying 'shoot to kill' attack.
The driver started running as passengers fled from Stockwell Tube station following the shooting of a man it has since been revealed was unarmed.
According to officials from the train drivers' union Aslef, the train driver was chased by police who on catching up pointed a gun at his head.
Hearing about this outrageous behavior by armed cops given orders to shoot to kill, many train drivers have been understandably reluctant to continue working normally, the union's London officer Steve Grant has reported.
He said this incident highlights the tense atmosphere that his members are having to cope with since the 7th July attacks.
Apparently police have since apologised, which I am sure will have made the driver involved feel much better.
So, with armed tigger happy homicidal cops running around London we now have something else to worry us. We are therefore forced to raise the unofficial terror alert to 'dont run!'.
This highten security level means - don't wear bulky or baggy items of clothing if you are dark skinned - if you see police, walk at a resonable pace away from danger - whatever you do, do not run!
