In The Name Of The State

Update: Surprise!!!!!!!!!!! As expected, the REAL docs have been leaked. As expected, it turns out that de Mendes was not wearing the unusually heavy clothing, he never jumped the security, he was not running. He was shot deliberately in cold inhuman blood. This is just the latest example of a pattern being followed since the IRA bombing days.


A few days back i had made this post about the killing of an innocent Brazilian immigrant by the London Police.
I could see some strong parallels to Gerald Conlon's story. It hasn't ended there. Gareth Pierce, who took up Jerry's case is now taking up de Mendes's family's case as well. As for the two cops who shot de Mendes, one has been granted leave and another transferred to a different department. Justice, and how!!!!
The IRA has announced their abandonment of armed struggle and their decision to get into the political process. Life is indeed full of coincidences and related events happening all around. Will the lessons be learnt at all? Or is it too much to ask for?

  • Hi Karthik, read your blogs, its a masterpiece. These blogs show your interets in all the fields but nothing on LIFE, u can write very well on it and its a very interesting topic for most of the bloggers.

    Also these blogs show your favourites Ilaiyaraaja and Kamal Haasan. You don't see hindi movies?
    Anyways i like your blogs and waiting for more blogs.

  • Shreya,
    Those were flattering words but the fact remains that blogging is what jobless people like me do at the work-place (mostly) for lack of better things to do. :)

    I do see Hindi movies but my exposure to them is rather limited. I shall write my comments on Sarkar abd Virudh as soon as i watch the flicks........
    BTW, yeah i haven't written on life... TBD
