"I Am The Law"
Two Israeli Border Guards have been indicted on charges of felony kidnapping, robbery, aggravated assault and abuse of police force after they robbed a Sudanese refugee last Sunday. After detaining the man, they stole his stay permit presented as identification, forced him into their police car and drove him to an abandoned building in a secluded location outside the southern city of Eilat. There they stole NIS 700 (about $184) from his his wallet, telling him Judge Dread-style that "we're the law" and told him that he would be sent back to Sudan if he complained. The 2 cops than proceeded to punch, kick and beat the man with a police flashlight, leaving him bruised and unable to walk with wounds to the knee, right hand and pelvis.
