Am I alone in being tied of hearing de Menezes described as an "innocent Brazilian shot on the Tube"? He was an illegal immigrant, a law beaker. Yes he was not guilty of a capital offence. He was shot by mistake. His family deserve our sympathy but that is all. He contributed to his own demise by being where he should not have been. The family should not be receiving any payment from our taxes. Despite my large beard I fully support a shoot to kill policy against suspected suicide bombers, hollow bullets and all.
