Disabled Woman Brutally Beaten in Moscow Oblast

00 No More Hate Crime. 18.09.13

______________________________

On Tuesday, the Moscow Oblast SKP said that a disabled woman required hospitalisation after a group of young female attackers (some of whom were underage) brutally beat her. Investigators said that on 10 September, at about 22.00 MSK, “a group of eight young women, four of them underage, beat up a 21-year-old disabled woman. The attackers humiliated and insulted her, and filmed the attack on a mobile phone”. The SKP went on to say that the victim was admitted to hospital early on 11 September, with head and stomach injuries; the doctors had to remove her ruptured spleen. An investigation is under way into the incident, which the SKP classified as premeditated aggravated assault, an offence that carries a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison. On Tuesday, Irina Gumennaya, an SKP spokesman, told RIA-Novosti that the cops arrested one of the suspected female attackers.

Editor’s Note:

Russia ain’t Paradise on Earth. However, criminals there still do hard time for hard crimes. Betcha that the perps they catch end up in a correctional colony in the Sakha Republic or Chukotka… they’ll learn that it ain’t cool to beat up disabled people. Bustin’ rocks under the Arctic sun tends to do that to you…

Anti-smoking policies appear ineffective… in Greece, signs prohibiting smoking in public places just haven’t stopped the practise, and warning labels on cigarette packets don’t deter British teenagers from smoking. Sergei Yolkin takes a jab at this…

Editor’s Note:

What makes me think that Sergei Vladimirovich doesn’t quite believe the Facebook press release? I think that most of you grasped the same point, didn’t you?
