Attorney-General won't prosecute policeman who assaulted Ethiopian soldier

The state attorney-general has made a farce of the law, and so too have some police officials:
Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein decided on Sunday to close the case against a police officer who was filmed beating Ethiopian-Israeli soldier Damas Pakada in early May.

Weinstein's decision followed a recommendation by the State Attorney's Office and the Police Internal Affairs Bureau, which said the evidence in the case did not warrant pressing criminal charges.

Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino dismissed the officer from the force shortly after the incident.

[...] Ethiopian-Israeli activists were vexed by the decision. One post on the community protest's Facebook page read, "This is a sad day for the Ethiopian-Israeli community. The legal system has decided the same laws don't apply to us. The Attorney General's Office, State Attorney's Office, and Police Internal Affairs Bureau have ruled that justice will not be served."

The Tebeka organization, a group advocating equality for Ethiopian-Israelis, said the decision was "outrageous, offensive, and disgraceful."
Indeed it is, and the worst part is that now, they're opening the door for more protests that we don't need. The ex-cop should be ashamed of himself for causing all the trouble his actions are going to cause as a result of his sickness.
