I haven''t seen this discussed widely here Yet it's closely related to the topics here There is nothing, no evidence there A shot guy and nothing. This is a disgrace in the tradition of 7/7 and de Menezes Nothing will come out of their investigation of Lansdown Road, any more than their raids on Tescos or the PO This is atrocious It's an ongoing investigation and yet widely discredited We know the creditable source is an MI5 informant
I've been following this and mentioned it briefly on my journal here. I was discussing it with a mate yesterday and we were both incredulous at the scale of this operation, a 'Whitehall source' claiming that the man was not shot by the police but by his brother - even though his brother wasn't even on the same floor of the house at the time and, like you say, no evidence of what the hell it was they claim they were looking for! Un unarmed man shot by another unarmed man in a house full of 250 armed police sounds unlikely to me. The informant was said to have overheard an 'incriminating conversation', whatever that might have been.
Andreas Whittam Smith, in yesterday's Independent, compared the raid with the security operation in Canada which resulted in the arrests of 17 men and 5 youths.
"In the British case, the police make their raid and have so far found nothing. In the Canadian case the police similarly carry out arrests and find what they were looking for - but only because they put it there themselves!"
Cafe search after terror arrests Police guarding a property in Bradford Police said they valued the support of residents and community leaders Detectives are searching an internet cafe in Bradford following two arrests under terrorism laws earlier this week.
A 16-year-old boy was held in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, on Wednesday, while a 21-year-old from Bradford was detained at Manchester Airport the previous day.
Detectives searched several properties in West Yorkshire and it is thought the pair have been questioned over an alleged terror plot in Canada.
West Yorkshire police called for local communities to remain united.
The force's spokeswoman said they were "working hard to bring the inquiry to a conclusion as quickly as possible".
The PC Vision cafe in Manningham Lane is the latest in a string of searches police have carried out over the past two days.
The 21-year-old man arrested at Manchester Airport is believed to be of Pakistani origin.
West Yorkshire Police, MI5, and the Metropolitan Police took part in the operation to arrest him, although armed officers were not involved.
The investigation is not being linked to the arrests in Forest Gate, east London.
Security sources have told the BBC the police's inquiries relate to arrests in the Toronto area of Canada over an alleged al-Qaeda-inspired plot.
The West Yorkshire force has so far not confirmed any connection with operations in Canada.

So, 250 cops raided on the basis of this INcredible intelligence someone, somewhere floated, an innocent man was shot, again, kickings and beatings ensued and the victims get a half-arsed apology from assistant command units in among words to the effect of 'this is how we do it now'.
The state is romping around shooting people, yet the news is full of stories about knife crime and how nobody should even have knives, much less guns.
