On the day De Menezes was shot, I was in the main control room (Information Room) at New Scotland Yard.I was operating the main radio "channel south" and also downlinking tv pictures via the heli teli from the police helicopter, India 99. I watched this incident evolve and unfold and the guys on the ground that day were nothing short of heroes.They genuinely believed that they were chasing a suicide bomber onto a packed tube train.As a radio operator, I know what messages were sent to that specialist firearms team.And as far as they were concerned, De Menezes had to be stopped at any cost.These men were aware they could all be blown to pieces at any moment, but still went in.The officer that got to Menezezs first pinned him to his seat and put (I think) 7 bullets into his head.The intention being to render him completely incapacitated immediately, while also ensuring passengers on either side were not harmed.As I said, these men were absolutely convinced the train and all the passengers were about to be blown to pieces.What would the headlines have been if he had been a suicide bomber and the firearms team hadn't stopped him ? Irrespective of what happened after the shooting, everybody should be grateful that there are these teams out there protecting London
