41. The police are trying to have it both ways, and that's simply not on
There is no doubt--we know this for certain--that they chose to merely follow Menezes over the course of his 2km trip, which included a bus ride. That, by itself, very clearly says that they did not believe he was an armed suicide bomber: the sine qua non of police training is to immediately restrict the freedom of movement of people suspected of planning catastrophic violence, and evacuate potential victims beyond the perimeter of harm. The police didn't do that. They simply followed him.

Which means they did not believe he was an armed bomber and thus had no legitimate reason to execute him.
