You'll remember that we blasted several holes into the skull of a completely oblivious, innocent and unarmed Brazilian, Jean Charles de Menezes, a while ago on the London Underground, having carefully avoided interacting with him in safer environments from the moment he left his apartment?
We now have Ann Sanderson, deliberately shot dead by armed police. She was, it would appear, firing ball bearings at CCTV cameras in the centre of Sevenoaks after midnight. Refusing to obey the command of an armed response unit - not that people always get that much warning - might be considered suicide. On the other hand, using a police firearm to end this open-air dispute might be considered predictable overkill.
One day one of these goons in uniform might get a day's pay stopped as a token of official disapproval, and pigs will fly. An ideal society wouldn't be governed by state-employed terrorists.
