Otherwise we would have to accept that they are going around and hunting people with down syndrome. Is that what you are proposing? Because that’s what it sounds like in your OP.
It is a tragedy but those kind of things happen
Jeg satt i en stol i hagen og snakket i telefonen. Da kom gutten med Downs syndrom. Han hadde med seg en lekepistol. Jeg så at det var et lekevåpen, og at det ikke var ekte, sier Moohialdrin Ali Al Surmi (30) til Expressen fredag.
Da 30-åringen prøvde å fortelle politiet om Erics tilstand, hevder han at han fikk en pistol rettet mot seg.
– Jeg ble lei meg på hans vegne og prøvde å prate med politiet og forklare hans mentale tilstand, men de ga meg ingen sjanse og rettet bare en pistol mot ansiktet mitt. Jeg ble forvirret og forstod ikke hva som skjedde, sier han til Expressen, og legger til:
– Politiet rettet pistolen mot meg, så jeg hevet hendene mine. Da senket politiet pistolen og jeg senket hendene. Det var det som skjedde og det jeg så. Jeg ville forsvare han, jeg er sikker på at han bare ville leke og at politiet hadde gjort en feil.
I was sitting in a chair in the garden talking on the phone. Then the boy came with Down's syndrome. He brought a toy gun. I saw that it was a toy and that it was not real, "said Moohialdrin Ali Al Surmi (30) to Expressen Friday.
When the 30-year-old tried to tell the police about Eric's condition, he claimed he had a gun aimed at him.
"I felt sorry for him and tried to talk to the police and explain his mental condition, but they gave me no chance and just directed a gun to my face. I was confused and did not understand what was happening, he says to Expressen, adding:
The police directed the gun against me, so I raised my hands. Then the police lowered the gun and I lowered my hands. That was what happened and what I saw. I would defend him, I'm sure he would just play and that the police had made a mistake.
Some people are blaming his parents for giving him a plastic replica of a submachine gun
Locals disagree, insisting that police don't resort to outright murdering people who are holding firearms without attempting to talk them down:
Not in Scandinavia. Normally our police talk people down even with real guns. This is unacceptable and unprofessional.
Everyone is equal.
The police would of took the same approach to anyone else.
You can’t risk other peoples lives for thinking “Maybe he has a disability”
This was the sixth person to be shot dead by Swedish police this year. This is a new high, never before have so many people been shot dead by Swedish police in one year.
So no, people in general don’t expect to be shot dead by police in Sweden.
Were really gonna blame the gift giver and a genetically different human before saying that the trained police officer should’ve done his job better? These people have so much power and not a single person is checking them.
