Retten til selvforsvar

For retten til at forsvare sig selv og sine kære

Sådan kan det gå…

En kort fortælling om selvtægt

I et samfund hvor man ikke længere stoler på myndighederne til at skabe retfærdighed, begynder borgerne naturligvis at gribe til selvtægt. Det skete blandt andet i dag den 8. maj, hvor broderen til et voldsoffer stak den tiltalte med en skrutrækker.

Broderen til et voldsoffer trak en skruetrækker og stak den tiltalte ned i retten i Lyngby i dag. Det skete foran øjnene af alle i retssalen.

Den 24-årige – bror til et voldsoffer – gik ifølge Nordsjællands Politi straks i retslokalet hen til den tiltalte og stak ham med en medbragt skruetrækker.

Han blev overmandet af det tilstedeværende politi og vil fredag blive fremstillet i grundlovsforhør.

Det var dog ikke mere alvorligt end, at den tiltalte efter behandling på skadestuen kunne eskorteres tilbage i arresten.

– Den tiltalte er arrestant, så der var politifolk i retten. De fik straks overmandet og anholdt voldsmanden, men det hele gik så hurtigt at de ikke var i stand til at forhindre overfaldet, siger vicepolitiinspektør Steen Nonbo.

Er der stadig ingen myndigheder som kan se at der foregår en uheldig udvikling? Enten strammer i op, så loven de-facto igen står for retfærdighed, eller også må i forvente mange flere af lignende sager.

Politiets besked til voldsoffer: Gå hjem og sov

Der er igen travlt på jobbet og derfor ikke tid til at skrive så meget. Jeg har dog nogle længere indlæg i støbesken, men indtil da vil jeg nøjes med at dele følgende artikel med de, som måske ikke læser 180grader.

Natten til fredag blev den 20-årige Kristian Madsen fra Rørvig overfaldet foran et diskotek i Nykøbing Sjælland.
Efterfølgende truede gerningsmændene ham med bank, hvis han meldte dem til politiet, men Kristian trodsede truslerne og ringede til politiet. Fra politiet lød, ifølge Kristian Madsen, imidlertid beskeden: “Gå hjem og sov eller kør til Roskilde”, hvis du vil anmelde overfaldet. Det skriver Holbæk Amts Venstreblad.
Hun lød meget træt, fortæller Kristian Madsen om politibetjenten i telefonen og fortsætter:
“Vi får at vide, at politiet ikke har mandskab til at komme til Nykøbing,” siger han til Holbæk Amts Venstreblad.
Jane Madsen, hans mor, sad ved siden af ham i bilen, da han ringede til politiet:
“Det er rystende. Jeg er chokeret over den besked. Jeg kan godt forstå, at nogle opgiver at ringe til politiet. Jeg føler, at retssikkerheden er lig nul. Kristian er blevet overfaldet og truet, og så kan vi ikke engang anmelde det til politiet. Jeg er glad for, at vi skulle til Jylland her i weekenden,” siger Jane Madsen.
Især er hun forarget over behandlingen, fordi de gerningsmænd, som smadrede en flaske i hovedet på Kristian under et slagsmål mellem to grupper i nattelivet, fulgte efter ham til skadestuen. Og på sygehuset i Holbæk trude de ham med bank, hvis han gik til politiet.
Henrik Mikkelsen, chef for lokalpolitiet, har ansvaret for bemandingen på lokalpolitistationerne efter politireformen:
“Som udgangspunkt vil vi normalt optage anmeldelsen over telefonen og så reagere derfra. Og særligt når gerningsmændene følger efter dem til Holbæk. Men jeg forstår det ikke. Jeg kan ikke udtale mig om sagen, når jeg ikke kender den,” siger Henrik Mikkelsen til Holbæk Amts Venstreblad.

Bemærk at flere i debatten under selve artiklen, kan vidne om lignende situationer. Min bemærkning til situationen var da også kort og klar:

Den tid hvor man kunne regne med politiet er for længst slut. Det varer ikke længe før vi begynder at se selvtægtsgrupper bryde frem i vores tidligere så trygge og fredelige samfund.
Sørgeligt at se, men en helt naturlig reaktion, når staten ikke formår at tage hånd om sine borgere.

Bernhard Goetz – The Subway Vigilante

Historien om Bernard Hugo Goetz er gammel og beskrevet mange steder, både i bøger, film og på internettet. Her er et uddrag fra bogen ‘The Tipping Point‘ af Malcom Gladwell.

Side: 133 – 135:

BERNIE GOETZ AND

THE RISE AND FALL

OF NEW YORK CITY CRIME

On December 22. 1984, the Saturday before Christmas, Bernhard Goetz left his apartment in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village and walked to the IRT subway station at Fourteenth Street and Seventh Avenue. He was a slender man in his late thirties, with sandy-colored hair and glasses, dressed that day in jeans and a windbreaker. At the station, he boarded the number two downtown express train and sat down next to four young black men. There were about twenty people in the car, but most sat at the other end, avoiding the four teenagers, because they were, as eyewitnesses would say later, “horsing around” and “acting rowdy.” Goetz seemed oblivious. “How are ya?” one of the four, Troy Canty, said to Goetz, as he walked in. Canty was lying almost prone on one of the subway benches. Canty and another of the teenagers, Barry Allen, walked up to Goetz and asked him for five dollars. A third youth, James

Ramseur, gestured toward a suspicious-looking bulg: his pocket, as if he had a gun in there.

“What do you want?” Goetz asked.

“Give me five dollars,” Canty repeated.

Goetz looked up and, as he would say later, saw that Canty’s “eyes were shiny, and he was enjoying himself… He had a big smile on his face,” and somehow that smik and those eyes set him off. Goetz reached into his pocket and pulled out a chrome-plated five-shot Smith and Wes-son .38, firing at each of the four youths in turn. As die fourth member of the group, Darrell Cabey, lay screaming on the ground, Goetz walked over to him and said, “Yob seem all right. Here’s another,” before firing a fifth bullet into Cabey’s spinal cord and paralyzing him for life.

In the tumult, someone pulled the emergency brake, The other passengers ran into the next car, except for two women who remained riveted in panic. “Are you all right?” Goetz asked the first, politely. Yes, she said. The second woman was lying on the floor. She wanted Goetz to think she was dead. “Are you all right?” Goetz asked her, twice. She nodded yes. The conductor, now on the scene, asked Goetz if he was a police officer.

“No,” said Goetz. “I don’t know why I did it.” Pause. “They tried to rip me off.”

The conductor asked Goetz for his gun. Goetz declined. He walked through the doorway at the front of the car, unhooked die safety chain, and jumped down onto the tracks, disappearing into the dark of the tunnel.

In the days that followed, the shooting on the IRT caused a national sensation. The four youths all turned out to have criminal records. Cabey had been arrested

Previously for armed robbery, Canty for theft. Three of them had screwdrivers in their pockets. They seemed the embodiment of the kind of young thug feared by nearly all urban-dwellers, and the mysterious gunman who shot Hem down seemed like an avenging angel. The tabloids duobbed Goetz die “Subway Vigilante” and die “Deadi Wish Shooter.” On radio call-in shows and in die streets,

he was treated as a hero, a man who had fulfilled the secret fantasy of every New Yorker who had ever been mugged or intimidated or assaulted on the subway. On New Year’s Eve, a week after the shooting, Goetz turned himself in to a police station in New Hampshire. Upon his extradition to New York City, the New York Post ran two pictures on

its front page: one of Goetz, handcuffed and head bowed, king led into custody, and one of Troy Canty – black, defiant, eyes hooded, arms folded – being released from the hospital. The headline read, “Led Away in Cuffs While Wounded Mugger Walks to Freedom.” When the case came to trial, Goetz was easily acquitted on charges of assault and attempted murder. Outside Goetz’s apartment building, on die evening of the verdict, there was a raucous, impromptu street party.

Videre på side 147 beskrives bandens baggrund og hensigt tydeligt:

Allen, Ram-seur, Cabey, and Canty. At least two of them, according to some reports, appear to have been on drugs at the time of the incident. They all came from the Claremont Village housing project in one of the worst parts of the South Bronx. Cabey was, at the time, under indictment for armed robbery. Canty had a prior felony arrest for posses-sion of stolen property. Allen had been previously arrested for attempted assault. Allen, Canty, and Ramseur also all had misdemeanor convictions, ranging from criminal mis­chief to petty larceny. Two years after the Goetz shooting, Ramseur was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison for rape, robbery, sodomy, sexual abuse, assault, criminal use of a firearm, and possession of stolen property. It’s hard to be surprised when people like this wind up in the middle of a violent incident.
