Two Bouquets of Roses For Israel's Finest

After yesterday's post, When Keystone Cops Get Sinister, which dealt with the darker side of th Israeli Police, today's post is a salute to the men in blue. The first bouquet:
Residents of Tel Aviv, Holon, Bat Yam and Rishon Lezion held their breath Tuesday night as police alerted the public to a suicide bombing plot that was already in motion in the region. After a dragnet that lasted approximately two hours, several Palestinian Authority terrorists were apprehended by police. They confessed to the planned attack and led officers to a dumpster in Rishon Lezion where they had stashed their explosives earlier in the day.
Bouquet number two:
The mysterious murder of 18-year-old Maayan Ben Horin in northern Israel some 40 days ago has been solved.

An indictment was filed with the Haifa District court Wednesday morning against a 17-year old Bedouin who was arrested for the crime on February 2.

The boy, living in a tent in the area where the body was found, had attempted to rape Maayan, a police investigation revealed, but after she fought him off, he murdered her with repeated brutal blows to the head.

Head of the Police's northern district central unit Menachem Hever said, "A DNA test was conducted and a perfect match between the suspect and material found on the murdered was found."
Believe me, I prefer today's positive post over the negative one I put up yesterday.

Fish stink from the head.

When the leadership is valueless and amoral (or immoral)that trickles down to the cop on the beat.

If the message they get from above is it's OK to beat rightwingers, of course that will happen. If the example they see is that acting like a criminal is OK, then they'll follow in their leaders footsteps.
