Menezes Cop. We Did Our Best

If seven shots in the head from trigger happy cops was the best they could do I should hate to witness a FUBAR.

The police commander who launched the surveillance operation which ended in the death of Jean Charles de Menezes has told a court: "We did our best."
Commander John McDowell told an Old Bailey jury he thought constantly about what could have been done differently.
His team was working under "difficult circumstances" on the day the innocent Brazilian was shot, Mr McDowell said.
The Metropolitan Police denies breaking health and safety laws when it mistook Mr de Menezes for a suicide bomber.

Mr de Menezes, 27, was shot seven times by two firearms officers at Stockwell Tube station on 22 July 2005. more
