Not so staunch

And here is an interesting post about how all that silly media hype about 'staunch Londoners' is utter nonsense.

He says, "Random searches will accomplish nothing - and let's face it - random searches are never really random. They make brown people feel like shit. I was selected for a random check once at Heathrow and when I looked at the other people selected for this 'random check' they were mostly Asian."

And as this blogger points out, they're saying they're sorry and that shooting the Brazilian was a 'tragedy', but they haven't said they won't shoot anyone else.

That's an understatement. According to the BBC report: [Police Chief Ian Blair] admitted more people could be shot as police hunt suspected suicide bombers.
