Police officers in Jean Charles de Menezes shooting escape punishment
Relatives of Jean Charles de Menezes have been told that police officers involved in the fatal shooting will not face punishment
An IPCC spokesman said: “The IPCC has today advised lawyers acting for Jean Charles de Menezes’ family, the Metropolitan Police and the Metropolitan Police Authority that it will stand by its decision not to recommend disciplinary actions against the officers involved in the fatal shooting of Mr de Menezes in July 2005.
“In making this decision, the IPCC has carefully considered the family’s representations, the evidence identified by its own investigation and all subsequent legal proceedings.”
The shooting of Mr de Menezes provoked a series of wide-ranging inquiries that hauled police tactics, supervision and individual decisions over the coals.
Sir Michael Wright, the coroner, recorded an open verdict at the end of a multi-million pound inquest last year after a jury rejected the police account of the shooting.
REMEMBER THESE OFFICERS GAVE FALSE STATEMENTS TO A MURDER ENQUIRY!!!!
The inquest highlighted a series of police failings, most obviously the failure to correctly identify Mr de Menezes.
Senior officers also came under the spotlight over the tactics for capturing Osman, ineffective communication and poor tactical decisions.
Frontline officers who stormed the Tube carriage were also accused of falsely claiming to shout “armed police”.
After the inquest, the de Menezes family called for perjury charges against officers who said they shouted a warning.
SO if I shot an unarmed man in the head 12 plus times in a crowded public area and then REPEATEDLY LIED about it ,that is OK as long as I can “suggest” it was done with good intentions?
Is it the state is allowed to murder its citizens and lie about it and when caught lying ,hey its the police they are allowed to plant evidence , give false testamony , pervert the course of justice and bare false witness.
If this is the case WE THE PEOPLE NO LONGER CONCENT TO THIS RULE!!!!!!!
