The De Menezes Result
Am glad the Jury gave an open verdict. To do anything else, especially given that the witnesses who were commuters on the tube stated that there was no call of "Armed police!", would have been a travesty. I appreciate that there was a conflict of information that morning and a sense of panic, but one has to bear in mind that an innocent man ended up being killed as a result, and hopefully this verdict will give everyone a chance to move forward.
