The Clash of Civilizations: London Living is Pricey, London Life is Cheap...

"You know in England if you commit a crime, the police don't have a gun and you don't have a gun. So if you commit a crime: "Stop! Or, or I'll say stop again!"

London Police Kill Man at Subway Station

LONDON - Plainclothes police chased a man in a thick coat through a subway station, wrestled him to the floor and shot him to death in front of stunned commuters Friday. Police said the shooting was "directly linked" to the investigations of the bomb attacks on London's transit system.

Appealing for help from the public to capture the suspects, police released photographs of four men suspected of launching Thursday's second wave of terrorist attacks, saying they bore similarities to the July 7 bombings that claimed 56 lives. Police said the bombs on Thursday partly detonated and contained homemade explosives.

The police photographs showed one man, wearing a dark shirt with "New York" across the front, running through a subway station. Another was shown on the top of a double-decker bus, while the other two men were shown at separate subway stations.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair told a news conference in central London that his force was facing its "greatest operational challenge ever" and that anti-terrorism officers were working around the clock.
