Mark Duggan, Anders Breivik And Jean Charles de Menezes: Cressida Dick’s Dum-Dum Police Shoot To Kill

MARK Duggan, Anders Breivik, Jean Charles de Menezes, Cressida Dick and those Dum-Dum bullets banned by the Geneva Convention. Alan White reports:

AFTER Norway’s mass-murderer Anders Breivik started firing few of those who were hit had any chance of survival.

He was using hollow point ammunition or ‘dum-dum’ bullets during his killing spree – after first impact the bullet shreds and tears through large sections of flesh causing terrible internal and exit wounds.

According to the outraged Daily Mail on July 26:

“The chief surgeon at a hospital treating victims of Norway’s camp massacre said the killer used special bullets designed to disintegrate inside the body and cause maximum internal damage. Dr Colin Poole, head of surgery at Ringriket Hospital in Honefoss north west of Oslo, said surgeons had recovered no full bullets. He said: ‘These bullets more or less exploded inside the body. These bullets inflicted internal damage that’s absolutely horrible.’”

So horrible, the use of Dum Dum ammunition is forbidden by the Geneva Convention. No country may allow its soldiers to use Dum-Dum bullets in any form when fighting or quelling enemy civilian riots. If they do the leaders of the countries allowing the use of hollow point bullets would be charged with War Crimes.

Sir Ian Blair’s Policing Controversy: Making Money With Jean Charles de Menezes

6483839SIR Ian Blair, former Metropolitan Police commissioner, was ever a man keen on celebrity. It was he, after all, who gave London the Celebrity Police Force, the photogenic division for whom no celebrity misdemeanour is too small to attend.

Now Sir Ian has written a book. It’s called Policing Controversy. He got an estimated £150000 to write it in triplicate. Expect to read lots about meetings, meetings about meetings and how while at Christ Church, Oxford, he gained a Second Class Honours Degree in English Language and Literature. He knows his fiction.

Ian Blair’s biography appears on the Metropolitan Police’s website – “Working For A Safer London”.

There is no mention made in it of Jean Charles de Menezes, the Brazilian shot in the head by the Met Police on Sir Ian’s watch, an incident Sir Ian deeply regrets. But, thankfully, Sir Ian now seeks to gives us fuller record of his achievements and tell us that from his position amid the tea cups and biscuits, the cops who killed Menezes deserve a medal:

If, as they thought, the officers were dealing with a suicide bomber, they would have deserved the George Medal. Instead, tragically for the de Menezes family and for them, they live with the killing of an innocent man.

Who can argue with Ms Dick’s statement that he deserved to die?
