I do not believe in capitol punishment other than for sex abuse against children

 

In most recent times the fanatics who commit suicidal bombings against the general population can be of any colour or race and in fact, as proven in Israel, they can be female

 

Given the same circumstances faced by the armed police (circumstances as we know them to be) would I have shot the runaway on the tube train?

 

Yes

its a difficult one but you have to think about the officers mind set both prior to going on duty and in the seconds leading up to the shooting...

 

he will have been preoccupied with his own safety and the future of his family and also the ultimate protection of the 100's of commuters on a packed tube train...

 

undoubtedly..in my opinion... he was right to shoot to kill and worry about it afterwards...this 'innocent victim' was a guy who had jumped the barriers in a tube station and refused numerous requests to stop and put his hands up...this was a guy who spoke english and worked here and who knew full well...as we all did..that London's security forces were armed and on high alert...

 

what on earth was he doing jumping that barrier and running towards a train....?

 

now of course we have numerous anonymous posts across various fora calling the police 'murderers' and screaming for the shooter to be prosecuted....

 

yeah right..that'll do it won't it and the next policeman to hesitate because his mates been arrested for this shooting will probably be responsible for the deaths of 100's as the bomb goes off...

 

this PC bollox is an outrage...how can we live in a country where an army colonel is to be prosecuted for actions by his men in Iraq whilst under arms and these bloodthirty muslem clerics are scott free walking around collecting their state subsidies and preaching murder and mayhem on OUR streets...

 

the shooting of innocent members of the public in any country is regretable but this policeman was correct in carrying out the orders of the state....

 

how can the very same state now villify him...

Why are we even bothering to discuss the matter ?

 

The man ran, and kept running...........

 

To quote Craig on Big Brother,

 

"End of...."

Had a chat with a member of the Surrey Police A.R.F. yesterday re this subject in our local pub.

 

Apparently, TWO challenges were correctly called.

If the police genuinely thought he was a terrorist who posed an immediate threat (because he was a suicide bomber) then they could be allowed to shoot him. As I understand it he was wearing a puffer jacket which could conceal a bomb rather easily.

I was sent it as an e-mail attachment so no idea.
