Shots in the Head

A newspaper from the UK (I don't remember the name of the paper) came out with this article on July 23, 2005, the second day of my art show. They had no photographers on the scene, but were able to reconstruct events from a series of interviews that they conducted. Something that I've never seen a major US newspaper do, use an artist to depict events. Such a horrific event as this needs to be exposed.

In case you're unaware of this event ... Jean Charles de Menezes, a Brazilian electrician was mistakenly gunned down by anti-terrorist police at Stockwell tube station, he was shot eight times in the head. Mr De Menezes, 27, died on Friday, the day after the failed suicide bombings on London's transport network.

Basically, the folks in the UK have gone stark-raving mad, Londoners were telling me that people-of-color were no longer traveling on the subways, nor daring to carry a backpack, and that the buses were empty.
