Bloody important news from the news


The truth about the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes is leaking out slowly. Lenin's Tomb reports that ITN have obtained police documents showing that the CCTV at Stockwell was working (the police had claimed it wasn't). The documents confirm what we know: de Menezes was not wearing a padded jacket, he did not jump the ticket barrier, he only ran when he heard a train arriving.

Lots more info has come out, but go to Lenin's place so he can get full credit. Or (it sticks in my throat, saying this) watch ITN News tonight.

[EDIT: So, now we all know the truth - or, at least, another version of it. Blogging reaction has been fulsome, but Chris at Optimus in Omnis is an excellent place to start (via that ol' Tim Worstall again).]
