Apollo 4 on column of fire

Officials: Passenger Who Made Threat Shot

So, um, did this person even have a carry-on before being shot?

Whatever happened to murder charges for the death of Jean Charles de Menezes?

Update: The man is dead. His wife said he had bipolar disorder and hadn't been taking his pills. Looks like another instance of an innocent man shot to death, though in the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes the man shot had displayed no suspicious behavior whatsoever. All the 'suspicious behavior' turned out to be lies made up by the murderers.

It's early in the latest case. Perhaps we will find out that the man hadn't displayed any suspicious behavior at all, or that he was simply hyperexcited.

The part about seeing him reach into his bag sounds like a classical cop lie.
