29. I disagree
Though I in general I agree with the statement that eyewitness can be unreliable (as I stated in the introduction). But this is not the point. The point is that Whitby got it not only wrong in every single detail. He got it exactly as wrong as the police. Three people didn't get de Menezes skin colour wrong. They all got it wrong the same way: Asian. One eyewitness has a complete blank for the crucial moments and several eyewitnesses who should have seen something reveal no detail. Rather strange.
And shifting accounts by suggestions. All accounts were done right after the shooting. They were basically the first information journalists got.
