'Nothing wrong with a little shooting as long as the right people get shot'...

London - (OMFG! Mess): UK anti-terror cops 'may have been adversely influenced' by a poster advertising Robert De Niro's movie Righteous Kill according to a lawsuit filed by lawyers acting for Jean Charles De Menezes' estate.

The Brazilian electrician was killed by eight bullets fired at point blank range after being mistaken for a 'fare-dodging suicide bomber'.

Prominently sited at the entrance to Stockwell Station the 8ft by 5ft movie poster's strapline There's nothing wrong with a little shooting as long as the right people get shot may have triggered 'something subliminal' in armed officers' response, according to the deposition.

De Menezes estate lawyers say there's absolutely no justifiable irony in the situation.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
