“Silence will save me from being wrong (and foolish), but it will also deprive me of the possibility of being right.” -- Igor Stravinsky
It gets better. It now looks as though the police have deliberately erased the CCTV tapes.
The story doesn't jive with the eye witness accounts.
What is "the story" that doesn't "jive" with eyewitness accounts?In any case, it hardly matters -- eyewitnesses are very poor at reporting events like this. For instance, in this example, eyewitnesses agreed that the man was wearing "a heavy coat." But the police had footage showing him lying on the floor of the tube wearing a light denim jacket. And they didn't mention it!
