A turkish police officer unloads his gun on a protester and rans away to the safety of his fellow killers.
These images are shocking and shows us what people are capable of if the carry a gun.
Let’s hope the rioter was not killed and the cop will spend the rest of his life in jail, but we all know that the chances of this happening are very small, unfortunately.
Update (translation from italian text)
A video came out only a few hours ago, inherent to the first day of the protest erupted in Ankara – more specifically in the commercial district of Kızılay – which continues for over 10 days. Right here, a police officer in riot gear, after being thrown out of a group of about 20 protesters with flags and banners, he felt cornered. So, he pulled out the pistol and started shooting, mo ‘warning, upwards. In the meantime, however, a protester was hit. Judging from the pictures, not by the same police officer who was there, caught up in the crowd, but probably by an agent away. That, given the ailing colleague, has seen fit to fire randomly into the crowd at eye level. The policeman at the center of scrimmage, immediately after the shooting, he fled.
The victim’s name Ethem Sarısülük, a worker of 27 years. E ‘was shot in the head and he slumped to the ground. His companions waved white flags because it was immediate relief. Turkish sources speak of brain death, but his lawyer has so far denied. It would be the fifth victim of the repression – remote-controlled by Prime Minister Erdogan – who are literally bloodshed protest in Turkey.
A prosecutor has already contacted the police because he mentioned the name of the man who opened fire. At the moment, according to the Turkish Communist Party, has not yet received a response. We look forward to new updates, which we will inform you hour by hour.
