The priest was defending his daughter… end of story… he could’ve killed him and got away with it…
On Thursday, the RF MVD reported that a man who shot a drunk in the central Russian city of Yelets turned out to be a local priest who said he’d been defending his daughter. On 30 April, a 25-year-old city resident was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. Although he refused to cooperate with police, they established that, the day before, the victim and two other young men, who’d been drinking, harassed a girl who was going to church with her father, a clergyman. The three young men and the priest, 53, got into a fight, during which he shot one of the men. The police said that he’d used an illegal weapon… a gas pistol modified to fire live bullets. The cops detained the priest, who said that he’d found the gun. He faces charges of causing grievous bodily harm, which carries a penalty of two to eight years in prison.

Watch for the priest to get a “slap on the wrist” for using an illegal firearm. To speak plainly, the common folk look up to people like this as “Robin Hoods”… so, the judiciary isn’t gonna dump on him like a ton of bricks. Remember, Russia’s in the midst of one of its periodic “sobriety campaigns”… that means that those who “even the score” against drunken hooligans won’t get the chop. He’ll get a fine… if that. After all, WHO started the brouhaha in the first place? It sure wasn’t the priest…
