Iraqi police face trial for lynching suicide bomber

My dad told me about this over the weekend. He said the footage made him embarrassed to be an Iraqi. I wonder now if he understood that the lynching victim was a failed suicide bomber. In my opinion they should not have killed him because they could have gained valuable intelligence from him.

'Iraqi police who appeared to lynch a failed suicide bomber in a beating broadcast by a satellite television station are to face human rights charges, the government said on Saturday.

Graphic pictures of the incident, which occurred on February 28, 2007 at the height of Iraq's sectarian clashes when security forces were being targeted daily, have been shown after every news bulletin since Thursday evening.

The violent footage on Sharqiya television showed police officers stamping on the foiled bomber's head and kicking his body. They then danced and fired weapons in celebration.

A statement from the interior ministry, responsible for the police, said an inquiry recommending prosecutions had been approved and "anyone involved in the violation of human rights will be sent to court to receive proper punishment."

"The (internal) investigation committee presented the results of their work to the minister himself and he approved it," it said.'

Your father is a kalb! He should be ashamed, ashamed of his own treason and collaboration with the occupier. When Iraq is liberated people like him will have their heads stomped. fuck you and fuck your father and fuck your whole family

It is understandable that the police would do such things at the height of the violence, when they were being targetted daily.

But although understandable, it is wrong. A captured enemy should be treated like a prisoner of war, or as a criminal who has to be tried. The police should always behave correctly, especially when the terrorists (or criminals) do not. So your father is right from the point of view of law and order.

You are forgetting one thing, Cox. These are not police.

A group of traitors don't become "police" at Paul Bremer's whim

Dolly, I’m having trouble hearing your voice through your veil. Your self righteous murderous piety is nauseating.

If he was suicidal,they were just helping the poor fella. Is assisted suicide a crime in Iraq?

Don Cocks the white man is encouraging the natives to abide by law and order after? Someone remind this asshole it was the Iraqis who first created the rule of law, and the US government violated the law when it illegaly invaded Iraq and murdered over a million of them. You can never really overstate just how racist and ignorant these American assholes are.

And Dolly is right. Just because the American occupiers gave the Shia gangsters police uniforms and shoes does not mean they are police.

"overstate just how racist"

How can I be a ‘racist’? I’m, what you call, a Mongoloid; aren’t you a pure breed Arab; the magical language of Mohammad? The choosen people 'race'?

Wonder what God meant when he told Isaiah to name his son: Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz?

The Jews claim to be chosen. Remember them? They are the ones you civilized Europeans slaughtered and then dumped their remnants in Palestine and gave them weapons to kill Muslims in order to soothe your guilty conscience. And yes you are a racist. It is obvious , a typical American asshole and racist. Do not lecture Arabs and Muslims about anything.

"Wonder what God meant"

Man wrote the Torah. You worship the words of man. You are alien to God.

I have to lecture you, because you are a foolish hypocrite with the mind of a child.

It’s really sad to see a man so drunk with foolish pride… false pride in fact. Look while he massages his false ego with the ethos of racial (Arab) supremacy. He is desperate and clinging to the literal reality of a book, a book written by men in Arabic, long ago. So close to America, yet so far from God. What a shame.

Do you believe the Koran is the literal word of God?

It is the Jews that claim to be "gods chosen" not the Muslims. Muslims believe all human beings are equal and all were created by god equally. So the next time an American asshole wants to discuss "the pure bred race" keep that in mind.

The Jews? Idiot. Do you believe the Koran is the literal word of God?

Yes the Jews and I do not believe they are "Gods chosen" Do you? Also do you believe God is a real estate agent? Do you believe God told them to go kill all the Arabs in Palestine and steal the land because he (god) as a real estate broker decided to give them this land? Do you believe that? Literally?

That the Iraqi police can no longer act with impunity is just another example of the positive changes brought about by the LIBERATION of Iraqis from Saddam.

Jews and Arabs both believe their books were written by God. Jews and Arabs both believe they’re “chosen.” Zionists and Arab Jarab are both nauseating.
