Duggan, de Menezes and Tomlinson

Jean Charles de Menezes was an innocent man killed by the police.

Ian Tomlinson was an innocent man killed by the police.

Mark Duggan  a 'gangsta' was lawfully killed by the police.

Whose death led to riots and accusations of racism?

We don't often agree to this extent Gregg, but...

I've just had a day recording another track off the album, so didn't spot this, and (wholly independently) written pretty much the same thing somewhere else

De Menezes was Brazillian wasn't he?

Pretty sure his murder (and that's we were dealing with) was motivated by an overblown knobhead thug in uniform getting carried away and nothing to do with nationality or race.

This Duggan love-in, indulged by the media is making me think we've passed the point of no return. This country is fucking insane...
