It would seem at even on the other side of the pond they have issues with their police forces.
Police everywhere seem to have an issue with how they exert their authority, especially in a difficult situation. Here in Canada it is no different – see the whole Vancouver Airport taser incident.
However, restraint must always be the watch word of good policing. To me the question isn’t wether or not the police should be held accountable for shooting Mr.Menezes, they have a difficult job and made a mistake.
The question is. “How do you shoot someone 7 times in the head, and still call it an accident?”
