    Police Shoot Man at London Subway Station

    By Associated Press
    Published July 22, 2005, 5:45 AM CDT

    LONDON -- Police in London shot a man wearing a thick coat at a subway station and cordoned off a mosque on Friday, a day after the city was hit by a second wave of terror attacks in two weeks.

    Police had no immediate details on the situation at the mosque in east London. But a Muslim leader said it was evacuated following a bomb threat.

    The circumstances of the shooting at Stockwell station were not immediately clear, nor was the man's condition. One witness said he was dead.

    British Transport Police said the Northern and Victoria Tube lines, which pass through Stockwell, were suspended because of shooting.

    Passengers said they saw police pursuing a man who appeared to be of Pakistani or Indian descent. Some said police shot him when he tripped.

    But one witness told the British Broadcasting Corp. that police "pushed him onto the floor and unloaded five shots into him."

    "He looked like a cornered fox. He looked pertrified," Mark Whitby said, adding that the man appeared to be dead.

    Whitby said the man did not appear to be carrying anything but was wearing a thick coat that looked padded.

    Another witness said there were at least 20 police officers involved in the chase.

    "The next thing I saw was this guy jump over the barriers and the police officers were chasing after him and everyone was just shouting, 'Get out, Get out!'" said Chris Wells, 28.

    There's better news articles you could have used, like the ones that explain that his house had been under survalience and when they saw him leave in a thick coat in the middle of the summer, they followed him to a train station and when they told him to stop he bolted. I'm of the opinion they should have just shot him as soon as he started running.

    yeah I think the London police have a shoot to kill policy when it comes to matters like this..moral of the story kids..if you look like a terrorist, don't run like a terrorist or you'll get shot..like a terrorist..sucks they don't hold and question suspects, maybe to aid the investigation..but I guess when that many lives are at stake..its warranted?..hmm

    running away from 10 armed guys is only stupid if you don't know they're cops...

    BBC just said the guy had nothing to do with any bombings. there was also a guy from scotland yard telling everyone that cops don't have any temporary special rights to fire ppl at will.

    anyway, the guy escaped... that's dumb. however the cops were in plainclothes, AND they tackled him first, then shot him 5 times point blank. this is what I collected. correct me if I'm wrong. the S.Y. big shot also said that plainclothes cops should always have a baseball cap or some kind of an armband that says "police" and that usually plainclothes officers dont pack heat. if they do, their rules of engagement are more strict than officers in uniforms. something like that?

    even if the guy knew they were cops, he could've just as well be a robber, a drug dealer, a writer or an asian guy who doesnt read/speak english in panic situations.
    whatever, in the media it's being scooped as a major police fuck up at the moment

    supposedly a middle eastern news source
    reported that london police have been given
    the right to shoot to kill and aim for the head.
    so be safe kids.

    ps - guy with a long jacket on in the summer = lotsa bums

    and if said "terrorist" did happen to have a bomb strapped to him,
    wouldnt logic dictate NOT to fire heavy calibur ammunition at him???

    cops arent geniuses.
    i am sure that really isnt a secret.
    you get some bobbie who has a marlboro man poster
    on his wall at home and thinks hes a cowboy and is just
    itching to shoot somebody and then his friends get into it
    and it is like a pillow fight at a prepubescent girlie party.
    theyre all giggling and shooting this guy
    whilst he lays on the ground face down
    never thinking twice that maybe shooting
    him repeatedly might detonate any explosive
    he may or may not have been carrying.
