On the Beeb

You have to love journalists ...

Eyewitness: "I saw them chase the guy into the tube, he tripped, and then they unloaded 5 shots into the man."

BBC News Reader: "Do you think that killed him?"

This after several confirmations that police have shot and killed the guy.

In the States, there would be all kinds of live "on-the-spot" interviews, but here we've just got phone interviews with people who were at (or sometimes near) the incident.

News Reader: "Now of course, it's not everyday that a man's shot dead by police in these circumstances."

These guys are sharp as tacks.
