11. Point by point
They were weaing plain clothes.
So. Anyone with a working knowledge of London knows that only armed police, uniformed or not, would pursue someone into an underground station in broad daylight. And at a time when 4 would be bombers were still at large and the tube is a particularly nervy place.

If they thought he had a bomb, they should have stopped him long before he got on the bus!
Perhaps the police didn't think he was a bomb suspect until he ran away from them into the underground. During the bus journey the police may just have been following a loose lead.

His family is saying that they were just told by the police department that he was NOT running.
Are you actually disputing that there was any pursuit at all?

I agree that the 7 or 8 headshots is the most distressing part of this whole story, I can't understand that at all.

Talk of racist lynchings is crazy. Do you think London is Mississippi or something.
