That headline appeared in one of yesterday’s papers! No word for the innocent man executed for ‘being in the wrong place at the wrong time’ to quote the Pogues song about another miscarriage of ‘justice’

The officer also goes on to say that his officers ‘were prepared to shoot dead the suspect without orders from bosses’

Actually the gunmen came within a hair breath of shooting the very brave officer who had effectively tackled Jean Charles, pinning his arms to his sides, making shooting totally unnecessary.

Judicial executions were banned many years ago, but it seems that there are armed and legalised executioners loose on our streets. What happened to Jean Charles could have happened to any of us.
