Two moments of silence

Today London is having two minutes of silence to remember the 52 people who were killed in the subway bombing on July 7 last year. It's important to remember the past. So I propose also having 2 seconds of silence on July 22, to remember Jean Charles de Menezes, the innocent Brazilian man who was killed by London police. They thought he was a terrorist because he came from the same apartment complex as a terrorist and "had Mongolian eyes", and so they pushed him to the floor, shot him in the head, and kept on shooting him for a full thirty seconds.
