    No need to fear the boys in blue if you follow simple orders. The suspect in London was told repeatedly to stop, halt, and freeze. A week after bombings he will not stop for the police when told to do so, he was asking for it. What if he did have a bomb strapped to his chest and ended up tripping it before police shot him? The police could not take that chance. People forget the police have to make life and death choices in a split second, sometimes we make the right choice somtimes the wrong. In this situation they made the right choice. If he would have stopped he would still be alive.

    I agree WolfS. Anyone has to now understand that things are different. I heard that this fellow was wearing an outsize coat, not really needed for the weather--mistake #1. Running when ordered to stop, mistake #2. Now, regardless of your status with the law, you must think twice before choosing to run these days in light of increased terrorist activities. All citizens must understand that police do not want to systematically gun down anyone, including suspected terrorists. That is why they used a stun gun for the one just caught, suspected of last week's bombings. But in hot pursuit of someone who could at will destroy more innocent citizens, a decision has to be made--fast. I couldn't do it, but blessings and many thanks to those who do.

    A nation whose police are trained to shoot someone in an oversized coat who runs when ordered to stop is an oppressive place. Especially when the behavior of some police officers gives many people a reason to run. I have no idea whether that's as true in the UK as in the US, but mindlessly running from the police shouldn't be a capital crime anywhere.

    By the way, the US population accepts a huge number of deaths on its roads - National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data show 42,800 died in 2004. That's more than a 9/11 every month. I'm not making light of 9/11 or of terrorism in general, but I see no reason to create a militarized police state in response to terrorism if such a carnage on the roads doesn't bother us enough to sacrifice any speed or convenience.
