Dutch police officer, who shot Rishi Chandrikasing, acquitted/Licence to kill

The acquittal of the Dutch police officer, who shot unarmed Rishi Chandrikasing, a Dutch
citizen of colour, is an absolute scandal. Cop claimed self defence, while Rishi was running away,
didn't try to reanimate him [he was living after hit by the bullet] and shot when moving [against police
instruction]. But it fits a long tradition of Dutch police violence, racist or other.
A broad protest in society is necessary. No Justice, no peace!
DUTCH POLICE OFFICER, WHO SHOT RISHI CHANDRIKASING, ACQUITTED

Dear Readers,

Not only the acquittal of the Dutch policeofficer, who shot Rishi
Chandrikasing to death, is an absolute scandal, it's also a great risk.
For when a cop, who caused the death of a defenseless, unarmed civilian, is going
to work again, he is a great danger to society.
It can happen again.
Now there are people, who allege. that Rishi himself was no peach either [or to put it otherwise:
had a criminal record] [1], doesn't matter at all.
Fact is, that any human being, whether ''respected citizen'' or not, has a right to life and protection
of his/hers life, and that thew police has no right to end that life, when tere is no obvious case of self
defence.
And there wasn't, since Rishi was running for the police [2]

FACTS
So, which are the real facts in the Rishi tragedy, which happened at 24 november anno Domini
2012

A

Police was told, that an armed man whould have treathed someone on train Station
''Hollands Spoor'' in the Hague.

B

Three police officers ran up the platform, were Rishi was standing.

C

Police commands Rishi to stand still

D

Rishi rans away

E

Police shoots at Rishi and hits him in the neck.


F

Rishi was UNARMED



Those are the FACTS about the death of Rishi Chandrikasing, a 17 year old boy from Surinamese/Indian descent [3]
Facts anyone can control [4]

THERE IS SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF THE NETHERLANDS/DUBIOUS
CASES CONCERNING THE SHOOTING COP/COP'S STATEMENT IS A LIE

Those are the facts, which obviously make clear, that the shooting cop is to be blamed.
AND HOW!
Because there was no reason at all to shoot.
When the cops came, the situation at Hollands Spoor was all in peace, nobody was being molested and Rishi was running away FROM the police.

But it becomes worse, because the shooting cop falsely claimed, that it was ''self defence''
According to the cop, who shot him:
''It was him or me'' [5]
Now you don't need to have studied Law to know that's bullshit, since Rishi was running away FROM the police and
thus didn't seek any confrontation.
How then it can be ''him or me'' as the shooting police officer alleged? [6]
Yet apart from the fact, that he was not alone, but with two armed collegues!



THERE IS SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF THE NETHERLANDS
COURT IS VIOLATING PRINCIPLE OF IMPARTIALITY
AND WANTED TO LET SHOOTING COP TAKE AWAY WITH CRIME FROM THE
BEGINNING, AS THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR

In her ruling, the Court must fullfill an independent rule
But in the case of the shooting cop, the Court did everything in its power to
let the cop free and so viiolated Rishi's right to life.

An example:

The utter nonsense statement of the Court,suggesting, that Rishi took a weapon, while running.[7]
In those situations you can do two things
Either you take a weapon and confront, or decide, not to confront and running away, what happened in the case of Rishi.
But you can't run [and thus choose not to confront] and at the same time taking a weapon.

Besides, this ''taking a weapon'' suggestion of the Court was solely based on the statement of the defendant, the shooting police
officer, who alleged, to have seen that Rishi made a ''strange'' movement in the direction of his pocket
and took a ''black object'' and that after his fall, a ''black object'' was flying into the air [8]

Stating for true a statement of a defendant, who of course wants to clear himself, without any further hard evidence, is
a travesty of independent Court ruling.
Besides [and the Court knew that when ruling], that 'flying black object was Rishi's mobile phone [9] and thus contradicted the
shooting police officer's statement.
ROTTEN, ROTTEN, ROTTEN

But there was more:

After pressure from Rishi's family and their lawyer, the public prosecution added murder to the charge. Two weeks ago however, the prosecution pleaded for acquitting the police officer of all charges because, they believed, he had all the reason to assume that Rishi was "armed and dangerous." The judges followed suit and even said that the additional murder charge was "undesirable and unnecessarily injurious." [10]
And that were the judges, who had to decide, whether the police officer, who shot unarmed Rishi, was guilty or not.
That was the public prosecutor, whose task it is to prosecute defendants.

I dare say, that the Court was never independent, but wanted to clear the killing cop right from the start.
That also goes for the Public prosecutor.
Shame, rotten and disgraceful!


THERE'S SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE PF THE NETHERLANDS/POLICE
DIDN'T FIRED A WARNING SHOOT, BEFORE SHOOTING RISHI

Investigation revealed, that when the police tried to arrest Rishi, no warning shot was fired, despite
the fact, that's always the procedure before shooting.
This shows the clear risk, the police [ut Rishi trough, with death as a consequence.
It is unbelievable, but that srerious violation of Rishi's right was defended by the Court as ''sensible'', because
of the risk of a ''richochetshot'' in a Station. [11]
To put it else:
It is no problem, to shoot a 17 years old, but a risk to shot in an empry Station [it was in the saturday morning
hours of 24 november] with a minimal chance of on possible injuries.

Strange rule of law.



THERE'S SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF THE NETHERLANDS
SHOOTING COP DIDN'T EVEN TRY TO REANIMATE RISHI

It isn't for nothing, that I said ''killing cop''
Police didn't shoot a warning shot, when they wanted to arrest Rishi, shooting cop
was lying, when alleging it was selfdefence, since camera was showing, that Rishi was running.
If this was not worse enough, shooting cop did no trouble at all to reanimate Rishi, when falling
on the ground under the pretext, that he thought ''he was already dead'' [12]
When other police officers arrived, reanimation took place and when the ambulance came
nine minutes later, they learned, Rishi was alive and took him to hospital
where he died [13]

Well, what a kind of attitude is that!
Apart from police obligation to give human assistance, when you shot someone and it was
not your intention to kill, should you not do anything to safe his life, even if it appears
he/she is dead?

No, in my book this is criminal intent.
And besides, since when are police officers medical doctors, able to conclude that
somebody already has passed on?

No, the whole case is causing a bad, rotten smell.

You can ask yourself, if Rishi was shot
down by the police, if he were no teen from foreign descent with a colour [14]
I don't say that out of the blue:
Former police officersreported to Dutch ''Omroep West'', that police
officers in the Schilderswijk at The Hague [where a considerable number of non-western allochtone population is living] use disproportionate
violence against foreigners [read non-western allochtones] and that foreign detainees re intimidated and abused.
Also they state, that the culture of racism and violence already exists for many years in the police station the Meemstraat,
in the middle of the Schilderswijk [15]
According to reliable information, the cop, who shooted Rishi came from a police station in the vicinity of Heemstraat, where also
a racist culture is ruling.
Racist Dutch police behaviour has also recently confirmed by Amnesty International [16]

Although there is no evident proof, the police officer acted from racial motives, it could have played
a rule, either by the police officers acting or the running away of Rishi [perhaps afraid for
police violence]

But racist or not, the rotten smell of ''Auf der Flucht erschossen'' continues.


THERE'S SOMETING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF THE NETHERLANDS/
SHOOTING COP WAS MOVING, WHEN SHOOTING/AGAINST POLICE PROTOCOL

And then another thing, that was blaming the shooting police officer heavily:
When shooting, the police officer was walking, which is a strong breach of police protocol [17]
And the reason is obvious:
When you are intended to shoot on the legs [as police instruction is] and you are moving, there is a high
risk [since mostly the fugitive is moving too] you hit at the wrong place, like happened in the Rishi case.
Yet the police officer deliberately took the risk, which led to Rishi's death.

It is very likely, that the fact, that the cop was moving, while shooting, led to the fatal shot [18]

And yet the Court has the audacity to acquit the killing cop, believing him practically on his statements,
even when proven contradictory the facts and having SO MUCH UNDERSTANDING for his
stressfull worksituation.

Has the Court forgotten who the hell is dead and buried?
Yes, Rish Chandrikasing, a 17 year old unarmed teenager.

Disgusting, this Court from hell [19], blaming the victim [there was ''reason to believe, that
he was unarmed, only based on some unckecked statement from somebody else [20] and
letting the killer get away with his crime.

WHAT WERE THE FACTS/WHAT WAS REALLY HAPPENING

Apart from the partly false statements of the cop [it was him or me, when Rishi was running away and there
were THREE ARMED COPS following him, not just he] and the Court and Public Prosecutor's coverage of
his crime, what was really happening?

Rishi formed no treath to the armed cops, came from a party and was unarmed [21]
When police arrived at the the Hague Station Hollands Spoor after an unchecked call,
that Rishi was ''armed'' and a treath'' [22], everything was quiet and nobody was attacked or in danger.
Instead of confronting with the police, Rishi ran away, so the ''him or me'' statement of
the cop was a lie, as we have seen.

No, the shooting cop couldn't know, at the moment of shooting, that Rishi was unarmed.
But he had not any proof whatsoever, that he was armed.
And again and again, Rishi was running away.
treath for the shooting cop

ZERO, ZERO, ZERO


Conclusion:

Police has fired on an unarmed man, who was no trewath whatsoever, because he was running away.
That deserves one name only:
AUF DER FLUCHT ERSCHOSSEN.

That happens not only in countries with a military dictatorship, but also
in the socalled ''democratic'' Netherlands, which is no humanitarian
democratic society.
Because when that was the case, Court had shown more
respect for Rishi's right to life, wheter he had a ''criminal record" or not.

POLICE STANDS ABOVE THE LAW

Although it's too scandalous for words, that the Court thus covered the killing cop's
crime [23], it is no surprise at all.
In the course of decennia, Dutch police got off the hook with
many deadly shooting incidents or mistreatments, which led to death or serious injury [24]

One such example is the death of 22-year-oldTurkish citizen Ihsan Gürz in 2011. Upon being arrested for an alleged verbal conflict with a restaurant owner, the Dutch-Turkish man was mistreated, stripped naked and carried into a police cell unconsciously. Ihsan died hours later. The police and the prosecutor ignored the torture signs on his body [25], claiming instead that the cause of death was a cocaine overdose. An autopsy undertaken in Turkey, however, could not verify this because his heart was missing.
The shady case of Ihsan's death at the hands of the police provides a parallel to the acquittal of Rishi's killer cop. Both are a testament to how different Dutch institutions (police, prosecution, medical establishment, judiciary, experts and media) consolidate a culture of impunity that preserves a space (grey area) for the police to use excessive violence in general and against people of colour in particular. An awareness of this 'untouchability' can only encourage the individual police officer in exercising brutality.
Personally I don't know any case in which police officers actually went to jail because
of a deadly police incident, however the police officer was to blamed.
EPILOGUE
Apparently human lives doesn't count in this country [the Netherlands], where police
violence plays a role and not from today.
It was the case also in the former centrury.
When the Netherlands really was a State with equal rights for all, the police
officer, who shot Rishi, was not getting away with it.
But for society in general it's also highly dangerous, that he is on the streets again.
It's high time for a broad protest in society against this licence to kill, now
confirmed by the Court, which let the killer cop get away with his crime [26],
from which anyone can be the victim [27]
Rest in peace, Rishi Chandrikasing

''This issue has become somewhat controversial as the rise of xenophobic and anti-immigrant sentiment in the Netherlands has been on the rise for a few years now, as has its opposition. Some accuse Rishi of being a criminal due to his alleged involvement in a stabbing, and and such his shooting was justified, but some basic factors have to be considered. ''

''Rishi was standing in the vicinity of the restrooms, facing the tracks, and must not have heard the officers coming up the stairs. Possibly they called out something like: 'Stop, police,' because the camera footage shows Rishi turning around. It is possible that Rishi first spotted the officer in plain clothes, with his gun drawn, because he took off running. ''

Rishi is from Surinamese/Indian descent
Suriname or Dutch Guyana is a former Dutch colony, which counts a diversity of
inhabitants of different descent.
Rishi's descent was from people, who originally were transported to Suriname as
contract workers after the ending of slavery in 1863 to do the work on the former
plantation, which, of course
the ex African
slaves were not willing to do
anymore.

On the statement of an Englisman, who filed a complained against Rishi, Court declared,
that there was a ''dangerous situation'' at the The Hague Station because of an ''armed man''
However there is besides the statement of the Englisman, no proof at all, Rishi actually has said the following:

STATEMENT COURT

''Op 24 november 2012 rond 05.45 uur was Rishi [slachtoffer] (hierna: Rishi), aanwezig in de wachtruimte van spoor 3/4 van het station Hollands Spoor in Den Haag.3 Daar heeft hij een Engelsman aangesproken die op een bankje lag te slapen. Hij heeft naar de Engelsman geroepen: "Are you Dutch? You must be Dutch. Every one must be Dutch here. Fuck off. This place is only for Dutch people." Rishi heeft vervolgens met zijn rechterhand in zijn jaszak gereikt. Hij zei toen: "I have a gun". Hij greep in zijn linkerbinnenzak en zei: "Now I am going to show you the right way to get out". De Engelsman heeft geen vuurwapen gezien. Rishi stond ongeveer een meter bij de Engelsman vandaan

Translated:

''At 24 november about 05.45 Rishi [victim] was present in the waiting room of Spoor 3/4

There he has spoken with an Englisman, who slept on a couch.
He has called to the Englisman: ''Are you Dutch? You must be Dutch. Every one must be Dutch here. Fuck off. This place is only for Dutch people."
Then he reached with his right hand in his pocket. He said then: ''I have a gun''
He grabbed in his left inner pocket and said: ''Now I am going to show you the right way to get out"
