Compensation for aggravated assault committed by police
Over three years ago, 20-year-old Benyamin Frankel arrived at the Amona outpost in the West Bank as a protester, and left the place in a helicopter bound for a hospital, after reportedly being beaten by a police officer.Whoever that "headless horseman" is, he should have his citizenship revoked. Seriously. If known who he is, he should be banned from entering your local supermarket, carnival fair, or shopping mall.
He was ultimately diagnosed with a permanent 10% orthopedic disability rating, and now, Frankel will be receiving compensation from the State in the amount of NIS 35,000 ($8,373), according to a settlement reached by the two parties.
Meanwhile, the horseman in question is also facing two other legal proceedings with regards to his conduct in Amona: Another damages claim filed by a youth that was standing near Frankel at the time, and was also allegedly beaten in the head, and a criminal case in which the officer is suspected of having trampled Yehuda Etzion with his horse.
