Some Good News, but

It has been reported that one of the violent policemen, who had beaten an anti-Disengagement protester will be charged.

This is only one of the many cases, the vast, vast majority are being ignored by the authorities. Someone I work with told us in the teachers room how he had witnessed police brutally beating a young demonstrator. He reported it to the police. When he later inquired what was happening with the case, he was told that it was closed. Why?

No witnesses, the police
said.


But I'm a witness, he replied.

No, you can't be a witness, since you reported
it.


What about the victim?

No a victim isn't a witness.

That's the law, making it very difficult to prosecute the police on brutality.
