First Xmas "Joke" of the Year

Guns, innocent people being shot, police, rucksacks and Santa

Nick Miners just sent me the following which will no doubt be doing the rounds as quickly as the
spoof London Underground notice about how running on the tube with a a rucksack and looking a bit foreign isn't good for your safety.

Xmas Cancelled

Police Commissioner calls for public debate over shoot to kill policy

Although according to the BBC Iain Blair "was not sure what form the debate could take, because specific details about Operation Kratos - the policy which governs the use of firearms against suspects - could not be made public without threatening the police's effectiveness."

On the 29th September Jean Charles de Menezes family were shown the CCTV footage of their son before he was shot at in a London Underground carriage at Stockwell Tube station. They have not been allowed to talk about the footage, but their solicitor said "We have many more questions to ask.

"This was the first of a series of meetings. We were shown the only available CCTV from Stockwell Tube.

"It was very distressing to see how completely relaxed and normal Jean Charles appeared, particularly in the light of statements made immediately after his death."
