Is there citizen oversight committee participating in this investigations or simply the cops are investigating themselves? How many times did the police use a pepper spray or tasers on rioting Haredis in Mea Shearim or settlers assaulting Palis? ,...
2. #1 No, you may not.

3. #1 Pretty often, actually.

Israeli police aren't known for their gentle behavior, sadly. Everyone's equal in front of the law in *this*.
4. #3 Except jews are more equal than non-jews

5. why do I believe Bimero?

Because we dont trust the police. SAdly.
6. Number 1. Drunks
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (10.10.12)
The people in Meah Shearim and the settlers are unlikely to be drunk. When dealing with rioting drunks one may be more likely to use stronger methods. I don't know about civilian oversight, but Israeli courts are more involved than in many other places, so there is definitely some recourse.
7. Number 4.
Danny ,   London England   (10.10.12)
Ethiopians in Israel are Jewish, so that makes your point irrelvant. There are Jews of many colours in Israel.

I can provide you a pile of videos proving that they (the police/idf) is turning a blind eye to a violence perpetrated by settlers against Palis and human rights activists or religious lunatics against those that represent a progress ,...
9. The complainant should be charged
Ethan Schwartz ,   Eilat   (10.10.12)
But a real court would find that the police lied and covered their asses. One of the the reasons that we have a high rate of guilty verdicts in our courts is because the judges throw out so many cases before they reach trial because they know the cops are making it up.
