7. It shouldn't be relevant one way or the other
I don't like all these conspiracy theories about the police, but I don't think that it's more acceptable to shoot someone if they were on an expired visa - any more than it would be more acceptable to shoot someone if they had made a false tax return, shoplifted, or done quite a number of other illegal but non-terrorist things.

Actually all these people screaming out that it's all a lie is also implying that it would justify the shooting if true. There's no need to prove that Menezes was (or wasn't) a saint. The police have admitted that he wasn't a terrorist. The question is how this cock-up occurred, and I'm reasonably sure it was a cock-up, not a conspiracy.
