Are we really surprised with this decision?

A little news story and a few blogs have been reporting the news that the assassins of Jean Charles de Menezes will not be facing any charges. Instead the Police will face charges of breaching the Health and Safety rules which means the only punishment is ours, we of course will be paying the fines for the H&S offences. Read more here.

Now to be honest who really expected any of these guys to face a court? Right from the start we were all going on about a cover up and a whitewash. It was clear that nobody was going to pay for the act.

I can see it now. PC Plod to senior management. The chaps are a bit miffed about Smithers possibly being charged because he went a bit overboard with those seven shots and old blinky making a small error on the clothing and log because he was otherwise engaged. We don't think it is right. These rag heads are terrorists you know and you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. Anyway, thought I would let you chaps know that our chaps are going to stop carrying guns if there is any charges brought. We could get shot by the rag heads and it now appears our own chaps are shooting us as well with the benefit on 20/20 hindsight. It's not right you know. Our chaps are your chaps and we need a bit of leeway.

These guys stick together. They are all they have nowadays. I wonder how many 'I don't know' and 'I don't recollect' were in the answers to the interviews.

I don't even blame the government for this. It's looking after your own. The Police do it, the Army does it and small communities do it.

It's not justice though.
