Here's my favorite part of the article you linked to:

"The marshals say Alpizar announced he was carrying a bomb before being killed.

However, no other witness has publicly concurred with that account. Only one passenger recalled Alpizar saying, "I've got to get off, I've got to get off," CNN's Kathleen Koch reported.

No explosives were found onboard the aircraft. It was the first time a federal air marshal fired a weapon at someone since the program was bolstered after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Dave Adams, a spokesman for the Federal Air Marshal Service, said Alpizar had run up and down the plane's aisle yelling, "I have a bomb in my bag."

In other words, the guys who shot him, naturally, are saying he was a threat while everyone else seems to think he made no such threat. And of course, this administration that wouldnt know justice, ethics or morality if it fell over it, is all too happy to cover up this murder (if this is what it looks like). And the apologists use the usual tactics - fear- anything we do is justified to keep you safe. Shoot first, ask questions later.

IF the man said he had a bomb, that makes this very different, but if HE DID NOT SAY HE HAD A BOMB, that makes this murder.

Sam Alito would be happy. He likes "Dirty Harry" style cops who shoot first and ask questions later.

I guess it would have been too much for the federal marshalls to approach the guy early on when he seemed agitated and try to assess what was wrong with him? Or weren't they paying attention and only noticed him when he was allegedly running up and down the aisle screaming "I have a bomb" (although no one seems to remember that happening except the marshalls)? Its not exactly news to anyone that many people get anxious and even agitated when flying and it could have been something as simply as a panic attack in a very closed in space.

Menezes was not, it turned out, dressed like the Britpolizei said nor did he flee as they claimed. A Brazilian electrician. I hope the family names Tony B:Liar in the lawsuit.
