IAN BLAIR (hopefully soon to be ex Police Commissioner), COVERUP COP

20-08-2005 15:34

Jean Charles de Menezes and Jean's heartbroken family deserve justice and the truth. We all deserve a police force that protect us. Jean's cousin Alessandro Pereira is right, he wants those who break the law including the 'police' murderers who illegally killed Jean to be prosecuted.
