One has to wonder at a society which refuses to protect its citizens by the implementation of a death penalty, seemingly willing to put its citizens at risk from recidivist killers and unwilling to have sufficient confidence in Police evidence, witness evidence, legal procedure, Juries and Judges!
Yet without evidence, without defence, without due process, without Jury & unguided by lawyers or Judge – clearly: ill trained, incompetent Police, with poor judgement and deficient leadership we arm our police and authorise them as executioners!How can this be morally right?
The Jean Charles De Menezes inquest has ruled out the option of ‘unlawful killing’ to the jury.What is the point of having a jury if they are not free to make their own verdict? Even to the public, unused to arms, it looks all too like the fact that the jury were showing every sign of coming to the obvious and just verdict of ‘unlawful killing’, a situation that can not be permitted in an ever increasing Police State, where the Government goons act as death squads!
Will anyone EVER be prosecuted for unlawful killing? Failing that will anyone ever get charged for assisting suicide;
Consider for a moment the staggering arrogance and hubris that Cressida Dick a Common Purpose fast tracked Officer was not only the Operational Office in charge when Jean Charles was summarily executed and the two hit men who carried out the murder were known as Charley One & Charley 12. The two murderers, despite their incompetence, were back on armed duty shortly after ther killing and Cressida Dick was promoted – Prior to ANY enquiry or The Coroner’s Court Verdict (travesty that it was!).
IF Debbie Purdy (Suffering with ms) got told last month that if her husband helps escort her to Dignitas in Switzerland he might face prosecution, surely the policeman could get charge with this!

So that is a long series of Police Murders and it is probable that I have missed some.
More frightening is the fact that The Home Office have no record of fire arms held by the police.
The police are grossly over armed and there is no clear record of a police killing that has saved the life of ANYONE uninvolved in the incident at hand.
