Public opinion over the police's controversial shoot-to-kill policy has wavered dramatically since an innocent man was shot dead in London last Friday.
Jean Charles de Menezes, 27, a Brazilian electrician on his way to work, was shot by police as he tried to get on a train at Stockwell Tube station on Friday.
He had been followed from a block of flats which was under surveillance, but he turned out to have no connection to terrorism.
A poll on the Mail online on Friday and Saturday showed that 84 per cent of readers were in favour of the shoot-to-kill policy in respect of suspected suicide bombers, compared with 16 per cent against.
But a second poll started on Sunday showed a dramatic swing in opinion. At 10.30am on Monday, only 68 per cent of readers were in favour of the policy, compared with 32 per cent against.
