My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


The Brits Appear To Have Erred

The dramatic chase and shooting of a dark-skinned young man in London on Friday was, apparently, a mistake. Police have said that the man had no ties to the recent bombings or to terrorism.

Just a few questions: why was he wearing a long coat on a July morning? why was he coming from a house that was under surveillance (I will stipulate that this is hardly evidence)? and, why was he running from the police, when he was fluent in English?

This appears to be a tragedy, albeit one that has a few odd cirumstances around it. I wonder . . .when John Kerry said terrorism is primarily an issue of law enforcement, is this the sort of thing he had in mind?
