Even a London Bobby You Can't Trust

As the New York Times reports it, London policemen lie and kill.

It basically informs us that an official investigation directly contradicted the police account of the killing of a young Brazilian man after the bombing attempts in London on July 21.

At the time, the police said Mr. Menezes wore a bulky jacket on a hot day, began running from officers despite commands to halt, vaulted the ticket turnstile and ran stumbling onto the subway train. A news report on British television said an inquiry led by the Independent Police Complaints Commission had contradicted every one of those points. The report said that the officers had misidentified Mr. Menezes as one of the failed July 21 attackers and that he was killed even though he walked into the subway station wearing a light denim jacket, did not vault the turnstile and was sitting on the train when the officers moved in.

You can't trust policemen, in the U.K. and, as we know, in Israel as well.
