In August 2009 Arik Karp died on the Tel Baruch boardwalk after being brutally beaten to death by three Jaljulia residents, who were later charged with murder.
One of the suspects asked Karp to "hook him up" with either his wife or daughter. When he got up to leave with the two, the suspect called two of his friends, who came running. The wife and daughter fled, while Karp was brutally beaten to death.
The indictment alleges that at one point, Karp managed to get up and attempted to escape but the assailants wouldn't let go, chasing him, knocking him down a second time and continuing to beat him in the head and upper body while he was defenseless.
Nonetheless, the judges ruled that there was no way to unequivocally determine whether Karp died from the beating or drowning, though the direct cause was clear.

Had the killers been Israeli and the victim Arab this would have been paraded all over this forum as proof of the racism and bias of the Israeli legal system.
Had it been this scenario, the case would have been dismissed by the judge. And you would be here defending that decision.
From what i'm reading, the three are plainly guilty of murder... But the prosecution was flat-out worthless in proving this. It's not a question of race or bias;
