The documents reveal that a member of the surveillance team, who sat nearby, grabbed Mr de Menezes before he was shot: "I heard shouting which included the word 'police' and turned to face the male in the denim jacket.
"He immediately stood up and advanced towards me and the CO19 [firearms squad] officers ... I grabbed the male in the denim jacket by wrapping both my arms around his torso, pinning his arms to his side. I then pushed him back on to the seat where he had been previously sitting ... I then heard a gun shot very close to my left ear and was dragged away on to the floor of the carriage."
"In a further puzzle, the soldier staking out the block of flats identified Mr de Menezes as he left the building as IC1 -- police terminology for ethnic white."
my type of 'deflection' happens daily at MeFi whenever someone around the world is victimized by a terrorist bomber: "Way to go Bush!010101" is inevitably the response, no matter how unrelated. So if you condemn what I wrote, I can expect to see you in those threads asking the Bush-obsessed to concentrate on the topic at hand.
