Mulling Over the Menezes Affair

I came across this, from : Who Knows Where Thoughts Come From, as reported in BBC NEWS UK Magazine Blog in haste, repent at leisure?:

It's a strange contrast between the treatment of the leaker (suspended from work) to the treatment of the assassin (distinctly not suspended; given an expenses paid holiday though). It would make you think that exposing the truth is a worse crime than killing an innocent man.
Indeed. I don't know if the whole truth in this case has yet played out, but certainly the scrutiny should bring out quite a bit in the details, hopefully in a way that will prevent further loss of innocent life.
