Our worst nightmares

16-08-2005 21:33

Unbelievable... or prehaps not. Evidence revealed by ITV news confirms that police incompetence appears to have played a major role in their murder of Jean Charles, the Brazilian electrician shot dead on the tube. Worse still, it confirms that police repeatedly lied to excuse the fuck up.

Jean Charles was no identified leaving the building under 'surveliance' because the cop on duty was taking a piss. Then an order was made to stop Jean Charles but it was never carried out. Jean Charles took a bus unaware that his death warrent was soon to be signed by carelessness and miscommunication of the British police force. He entered the tube, walking, collected a free paper to read on the train, waved his oyster card over the sensor and passed trough the barriers like any other passenger. He proceeded down to the platform and ran for the train on the platform. Once on the train, he took his seat like everyone else, still unaware of his impending doom and the hand of the trained killers of the farce. He carried no bag and wore a thin blue denim jacket - nothing at all to cast any suspicion on him or justify his muder. Only at this stage did police identify themselves, as they shoot him dead in cold blood at poiny blank range.

Be afraid.. but be angry!

U.S. Nuclear Weapons Being Guarded by Israel

16-08-2005 20:46

I just wanted to post this, since the US seems to be gearing up for another "911", and a military response which may include nukes (as drafted by Dick Chaney) against Iran.

It should also be pointed out that the same company providing security to the airports allegedly used on "911", and contracted in 2004 to provide security for the London Underground, was also an Israeli one, staffed with several "former" members of the Israeli intelligence service, the Mossad.

It has less to do with politics, economics, or religion, than it has to do with you, collectively. Only practical, direct, personal experience in social actions can generate the skills and confidence for individuals to bring about world peace by 2020.

Police Story Falling Apart: No Evidence

16-08-2005 19:28

Keep in mind that we still do not know who actually killed this man, or who they worked for. Since the day's "unsuccessful attack" left behind "evidence" supposedly intended to direct investigators in a specific direction, this electrician may have inadvertently witnessed intelligence agents planting them. Where was he working that morning? In the tube?
