London Bombings

I’ve not posted anything on about the recent London bombings and the associated terrorist investigations, and I’ll tell you why in a moment, but first let me say that I saw on the news that a man was shot dead in full view of the public on the London Underground today (BBC News article). You hear of things like this happening quite often nowadays, but never, ever has this happened in the UK, and never in such an uncontrolled environment.

They [the plain-clothes police officers] pushed him to the floor, bundled on top of him and unloaded five shots into him

Holy fuck people, that’s just unheard of. These plain-clothes police officers follow a guy into the tube, give him a warning and then slaughter him when he disobeys them. All this in front of a train station-full of commuters. They’d better have a good reason for killing him otherwise all hell will break loose. Unless they had very good reason to believe he was involved in terrorist activities, police would not have been allowed to fatally wound a man just for disobeying police orders.

As for me not posting about this stuff before, it’s because I’m no good at it. I don’t do this shit well because I don’t know what to say. I don’t like just telling people about it, because there are plenty of news sites and tens of thousands of blogs out there which will do just that, and it hasn’t affected me personally (so far, God bless, and prey that it doesn’t in the future) so I can’t possibly give any heartfelt opinions or stories. And that’s why I may not mention the London bombings or any other possible future terrorist activity again.
