Although there's no evidence to support the theory, I have a hunch that Jean Charles de Menezes might have suckered police into shooting him. Police claim he came out of a block of flats already under observation for links to terrorist activity. His behaviour was suspicious. He was wearing inappropriately bulky clothing.

Was de Menezes a Muslim? If so, did he intentionally sacrifice his life – I assume this would have given him instant martyr's access to heaven – in order to discredit those manning the London front line of the war on terror?

I could be way off base here but then again ...

Whether he is a Muslim or not, wearing a heavy overcoat on a warm day AND panicking needs to be explained before anyone feel sorry for him. The police saw him leave a house they have under surveillance so he could well have agreed to frighten tube passengers for Muslim friends (along the lines of "they can touch me as I am a Catholic"). Or he may - however unlikely - have thought it was a good practical joke.

Well, he won't make that mistake again, now will he?

As has been stated many times before:

He leaves a house under surveillance. He wears a heavy overcoat over extra layers of clothing on a hot (by London standards) day. He deliberately ignores multiple police requests to stop as he's about to board a train when the police are on the highest of security alerts because of train bombings. He half-fits the general description of someone involved in the attack. And he acts suspiciously.

With actions like that, I'm surprised they waited that long to shoot him.
