Time goes on. Remember that this guy was shot numerous times in the head at point blank range while three or so of them had him pinned on the floor of a subway car. And remember that Ian Blair appeared to have been lying in the early reports.

The Guardian coverage also tells me that while it appeared likely that 10 officers would be charged back in January, it is now un-likely that any will be charged.

You will have heard about the British Muslim who was shot inside his house recently, based on suspicion. Fortunately, the injury was not life threatening.

The safety of the public is paramount, but there must be a better way than attacking innocent people??
