Football fans take law into their own hands with teenagers who beat saleswoman
Thirteen-year-old troublemakers were taken to an abandoned building, where their punishment was filmed.
In the Tver Region, football fans filmed how they punished thirteen-year-old hooligans who beat a shop assistant. The video was posted on a social network. The regional ICR’s administration initiated a criminal case of arbitrariness committed with the use of violence (part 2 of Article 330 CCRF).
In the village named after Krupskaya, three teenagers made fun of the saleswoman, after which her daughters with baseball bats came to help her. The teenagers took bats away and beat the woman and her daughters with them. After that, a group of other young people found the hooligans and took them to an abandoned building, put them on their knees, beat them, and film the punishment.
The police detained one of the participants in the mob-punishment.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
