From blog member John Boyden
Hey, look! A new Pentagon toy!

More on the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes

Witnesses said he was wearing a heavy, padded coat when plainclothes police chased him into a subway car, pinned him to the ground and shot him in the head and torso.
JB: Well, I guess that’s what you get for running from people chasing you with guns.
Mayor Ken Livingstone said the killing was a "human tragedy" that was a consequence of the attacks. "The police acted to do what they believed necessary to protect the lives of the public," he said. "This tragedy has added another victim to the toll of deaths for which the terrorists bear responsibility."
JB: Yes, damn those terrorists! Look what they made us do! [End.]

To give the mayor credit, search this blog using his name to find his remarks on what caused the bombings. In fact you can read them in the LRC pick earlier today.
