"I saw an Asian guy. He ran on to the train, he was hotly pursued by three plain clothes officers, one of them was wielding a black handgun." An eyewitness. An Asian guy who wasn't Asian but Brazilian. He was Jean Charles de Menezes. He was 27 years old. He was shot 5 times in the head by those plain clothes officers because they thought he looked like a terrorist. He is dead. There are so many things wrong with this "incident", I don't know how to respond, except to say, If you are not white do not do any of the following: Carry a rucksack Run anywhere Jump onto a train or bus Look at anyone Speak with an accent Speak another language
