Sound common sense 1....Litigants 0

Going back to a subject I have touched on in a previous post it is good to see that the High Court judges have dismissed the challenge 'on all grounds' on the DPP decision not to prosecute those officers involved in the De Menezes shooting.

The QC acting for the CPS put it simply and eloquently when he said

'The fact that something went terribly wrong does not mean there is necessarily any individual criminal culpability'

I doubt however that this is the end of it.The 'representatives' of the family will likely make an appeal to the House of Lords. And if they don't give the answer they want it will be a trip across the Channel.

I think for some this cause still has some petrol left in the tank
