Explosive questions for police INTERESTING QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Omar Khayam, the bloke who dressed up as a suicide bomber at a London protest rally - how come he wasn't arrested on the day? EVEN MORE INTERESTING QUESTION OF THE WEEK: How come he wasn't shot on the day? This is a serious question. I'm not advocating violence. I'm just wondering. . . For Omar was described in reports as being "dressed like a suicide bomber." And photographs have shown that he did indeed look the part. But it's only in retrospect that we know he was just "dressed as a suicide bomber." As opposed to actually being one. Did he walk past policemen on the day dressed like that? Was he searched? Did it occur to anyone that there might actually have been something in his pouches? That he might actually be the real deal? Above all, isn't it a bit odd that in London you are now apparently allowed to strut the streets freely, while kitted out like a mad bomber. Bearing in mind that not so long ago a totally innocent Brazilian was gunned down amid claims (later debunked), that he looked suspect because he was wearing a bulky jacket?
