Now we know why British police aren’t usually armed

“Police: Man shot dead ‘not connected’ to bombings” is the headline on this hour. Let’s see, after they had the guy pinned to the ground an officer shot him five times. And he’s innocent.

Looks like the death toll attributable to the Metropolitan Police this week outpaced the death toll attributable to the terrorists. Quite diabolical planning on al-Qaeda’s part to recruit the Metropolitan Police to help them instill terror, eh, chappies?
