Murderer of Ethem Sarisülük Released - Erdogan Praises the Police

Ahmet Şahbaz, the police officer who has shot dead protester Ethem Sarisülük in Ankara, has been released. The shooting was ruled to be "within the limits of self-defense."

Here is the link to an older article on this blog - you can find a video of the shooting there: http://resisttaksim.blogspot.co.at/2013/06/murder-police-in-ankara-moment-of.html

Meanwhile, PM Erdogan praised the police forces for the "heroism" they deployed during the protests. Speaking at a graduation ceremony at the Police Academy he rejected all criticism of the police and any allegation of excessive police violence. Probably, he as well, was watching documentaries on penguins and ants while the clashes were raging in the streets of nearly all major Turkish cities.
