Notes from underground

London police guilty over Brazilian’s shooting

Is it safe to go back underground? If the terrorists don’t get you, the Metropolitan Police will.

London’s police chief defied calls to resign on Thursday after a jury convicted his force of endangering the public by shooting dead an innocent Brazilian on an underground train, mistaking him for a suicide bomber.

Police shot electrician Jean Charles de Menezes, 27, seven times in the head after he boarded an underground train in south London on July 22, 2005.

They had wrongly identified him as one of four men who had tried to attack the city’s transport system a day earlier.
