Understatement of the week

BBC News:
London's Metropolitan police force has been found guilty of endangering the public over the fatal shooting of a man officers mistook for a suicide bomber.

The force broke health and safety laws when officers pursued Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes to a Tube station and shot him seven times, a jury found.

Empahsis in the text is mine. Nice to know human life is so highly valued in the modern, civilized country of Great Britain.
