Police chief 'sorry' over death of Jean Charles de Menezes

This is truly a tragic story. I have to ask myself, what else would you expect of a police force that for years have not carried a weapon? I wonder who where these officers that killed Jean Charles, and how long ago had they had weapons training? With the announcement of the re-arming of London bobbies, it would make me nervous.
Met Police chief Sir Ian Blair has apologized to the family of the Brazilian man shot dead by police in south London on Friday.

He said the death of Jean Charles de Menezes was a "tragedy", but admitted more people could be shot as police hunt suspected suicide bombers.

The 27-year-old electrician's family condemned the shooting and said there was no reason to suspect him.
