Protecting the public

Following the presiding coroner's ruling that the jurors in the Jean Charles de Menezes inquest are forbidden to consider whether the killing was unlawful, now Sir Michael Wright - a safe pair of hands if ever there was - has laid out what the diminishing band of jurors must pronounce on.

Apparently, as long as one of the hit team shouted 'armed police', it's lawful to then pump ten bullets into the head of an unarmed man lying on the floor of a tube train.
