the learning process

In the context of the G20 beating extravaganza, I've heard quite a few people in the media, including on Radio 4 right now, saying "why have the police learnt nothing from the Jean Charles de Menezes case?"

I am not quite sure what they are getting at here - surely the police have learnt the lesson of the Jean Charles de Menezes case, which is that they can get away with pretty much anything.

Seems to me they learned EVERYTHING about what they do from the Jean Charles de Menezes case.

It will be interesting to see how they deal with the video footage - because then anyone involved in a fracas will be able to use the excuses they come up with!

"Mongolian eyes"???

Racist FUCKS.

My daughter has eyes like that. I don't know where the hell they came from. Her dad and I both have Amerindian ancestry, that may be one explanation. Cherokee at minimum for me, Mohawk and Seneca for him. I also have a younger brother in which the Amerindian traits have come out strongly. Will he become a target if this is how potential "terrorists" are assessed? Will my daughter? de Menezes clearly has a mix of Portuguese and Amerindian ancestry, that's why the eye shape. Jesus Christ. Maybe it's the lack of contact with Amerindians that has your cops over there confused. God knows they have every reason in the world to go around blowing things up--strangely, they don't.

If de Menezes spent enough time in the UK, and it sounds like he did, he was a lot paler than the guy they thought he was, to boot.

If I were Queen for a day I'd declare everyone involved unfit for duty and a threat to society and deport them. At best they're walking around with uncorrected bad vision and shouldn't be allowed to carry weapons, much less work on the police force. At worst they're auditioning for officer positions in the KKK.

Given that the chap they claimed they thought he was was from Ethiopia anyway, I haven't a clue what they were on about really.

Here's an example of Thea's eyes so you can see what I mean.
