LONDON - Police said Saturday that a man shot and killed on a subway car had nothing to do with an investigation into a series of bombing attacks Thursday on London's transit system. The shooting Friday took place at a subway station in the southern London neighborhood of Stockwell. Scotland Yard said in a statement that "the man was unconnected to the incidents of Thursday 21 July."

There's a nice amount of insensitivity here. That's what racial profiling gets you. If he didn't want to stop then he may have been guilty for some reason, but certainly not guilty enough to kill. Way to jump the gun London, that's what you get when you scare yourselves, kill an innocent (to some extent) man.

Its really not funny, the guy died, and he wasnt doing anything wrong, but he must have done something stupid. Its not like in DC where a cop will accidently shoot a black person because he was holding a book and not a gun. The brits dont carry guns unless they are in a state of emergency, they are unarmed, but this time someone had a gun wich should tell you something. And this fella ran.

When an attack of this level happens, the whole area is guarded by armed cops, so it doesn't matter if they usually carry guns or not, at that time, they all did. Who knows why he ran, but it wasn't because of terrorism.

they didn't all carry guns, just the special forces unit. and this guy was mighty suspicious, walking around in a thick jacket in summer? then running past the ticket booth onto the train? he was almost asking for it.

The guards in the train station all had weapons. The regular police force (Bobbies) do not carry them, but they were under alert. It doesn't matter if he's suspicious or not, or that he ran. He was shot down, unarmed from what the stories are saying, and it's ridiculous.

So, these people just had multiple bomb attacks against them, and a highly suspicious looking man runs from police in a train station...come on dune, he may as well have painted a target on his back. What do you want, him to kill 30 more people before the police are allowed to take initiative?

We know now that he wasn't connected, but hindsight is 20/20, after all.

Yeah.. They were just attacked, would you say it was still rediculous if they found some smetex strapped to his chest? No you wouldnt, so shut your mouth about it. He was wearing an overcoat in the middle of summer right after a terror attack in london. Either the guy is A. A moron, or B. Trying to pull a prank. He got shot, the police did their job.

It doesn't matter. He was still innocent. One innocent life is not worth more or less than any other. With all this big bad "what if" crap, well we found out what happened, and now it's time for some major apologies. If that was a family member of mine I'd be irate as the public should be. It was a stupid move and the department should pay out the nose for their mistake. It doesn't matter what just happened to them, he's an innocent and did not deserve it.

No, they were doing their job. They shot a person they thoght was dangerous. He was running through a trainstation in an overcoat in the middle of summer, they probly told him to stop and they didnt, and they lit him up. Not their fault.

I think the guy was wearing a backpack and evaded cops by jumping over one of the ticket barriers. He was running for a train, and if I had been a cop, I would have done the same. You seem more like "I'll shoot him in the leg, kind of guy."

England also follows a fleeing felon rule, much like the United States. You cannot shoot someone because they are simply running from you. I understand what had just happened, but it still doesn't make this act right. Protecting civilians doesn't mean just shooting someone who looked suspicious. It could have been a guy that didn't want to pay for the train, hopped the turnstile and ran from police because he didn't want to get arrested for that. Happens every day. Yet this time they just shoot. Still doesn't make it right. I am not a "shoot them in the leg person," because you cannot shoot someone simply for running, regardless of what they might do later.

In a time like this, I believe that the police should do everything in their power to protect England. And here's a quote for you. "Althought not all Muslims are terrorists, almost all terrorists are Muslims."
