Chris Wood - Hollow Point (a song for Jean Charles de Menezes)

A while ago, I did a post on songs about people being killed by the police (Blair Peach, Liddle Towers etc.) At tonight's Radio 2 Folk Awards, the best song award was given to another: Chris Wood's 'Hollow Point' is about the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes by police at Stockwell underground station in 2005.

so sad so useless so foolish so pointless so idiotic and why? Its so sad that all tears are not enough and the state carries on like nothing ever happened. Collateral damage? Again and again.
