Prison officer who took part in lynching in Beer Sheva: 'I'm not sorry'

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4717769,00.html

"He hadn't been neutralized," Cohen said. "The first thing that came to my head was that he has a weapon and that he was making a move to take something out. I kicked him in the back of the neck and then sat next to him. I didn't touch him.

"The guy that tried to protect the terrorist didn't tell me that he wasn't a terrorist," Cohen continues. "He attacked me. I've been in the security forces for 13 years and I do not have a single record of attacking someone. I came to work in order to beat someone?

"I could have escaped. I've sworn allegiance to the State of Israel, so if I see a terrorist that hasn't been neutralized, I will neutralize him," Cohen adds. "If a similar situation happens again in two weeks, I will behave in the same way."

Cohen belatedly realized that Zerhom was not the terrorist. "I felt great pain, but let's tell the truth: He died from the shooting," said Cohen. "There was no lynching. The only lynching was the one in October 2000," Cohen told Ynet, alluding to the lynching of two IDF reservists by a Palestinian mob in Ramallah in the early stages of the second intifada. "I am subject to messages of hate, I'm told I'm a murderer, but I am not sorry for what happened."


Ah, how wonderous it must be to play your part in a mob lynching, but have no sympathy for your actions...or the victim.

Is there a Barny Feif award we can guve out to this kindly misunderstood hero?

1. Sounds like George Zimmerman

 

And the hundreds of thousands like him infesting our own country.

I'd be happy to respond to them and share my perspective.
