shoot first, ask questions later

"An agitated passenger who claimed to have a bomb in his backpack was shot and killed by a federal air marshal Wednesday after he bolted frantically from a jetliner that was boarding for take off, officials said. No bomb was found."

So, after a few hundred billion dollars, the Homeland Security Department has executed the first terrorist actually caught in the act. Oops; no bomb was found. The individual shot was actually a mental patient who had failed to take his medication. I think he was probably shot in the back but none of the stories I have seen mentioned that detail.
