More innocents "could be shot" - police chief

So now the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, Sir Ian Blair, has put us on notice that his officers might have to kill more innocent men and women in their fight against suicide bombers. Is it me, or is that not good enough from the UK's senior police chief? An innocent man is wrongly tailed, chased and killed at point blank range in a crowded tube train. An enquiry is launched, but pre-empting the findings of that enquiry, Blair shrugs his shoulders and refuses to promise the same thing could not happen again. One shard of comfort in this horror is that the dead man was a foreign national. I doubt the Brazilian government will be satisfied with anything less than full disclosure of all the facts. How long before Sir Ian resigns, I wonder? Technorati tag:
