Even if you are innocent, when blokes with guns start shouting with you, best make no sudden moves and act as submissively as possible. Unfortunately Mr Menezes had no such opportunity.

When asked "minorities" tend to quite offended anyone should assume they don't have ID. It tends to go with a home, a job, transport (personal or public), a bank account, a passport, social welfare. If anything they may be MORE likely to be able to present ID.

Almost certainly people with no presentable means of identification or who refuse to obtain such should not be voting!

It's a national health service, not INTERNATIONAL. For those who pay into it.
The NHS urgently need to reign itself in or collapse in the face of infinite demand.
Got a problem, shouldn't be here? return home and seek help.
Your country won't help? go into politics or lobby, at home.
Pax Brittanica was a long time ago.
