Police will open investigation into shooting soldier's death

Israel National News reports that the police will open an investigation into the death of the soldier Eden Zada, who shot up four Arabs in a bus.

I should hope so, because it appears that Arab politicians in the Knesset would rather it not happen, as told here:
Zada reportedly was killed after he had been seized by police and handcuffed. Minister Ezra said that a situation in which Zada had been attacked by a mob after he was caught and subdued “was very serious and will be investigated.”

The mob also attacked the police officer who subdued Zada. Ezra said the persons who attacked the officer would be arrested.

Another 26 policemen were wounded in rioting that followed the incident.

Arab leaders have called on the government to refrain from investigating the circumstances of Zada’s death. Shavki Hativ, chairman of a committee of Arab leaders, has claimed that reports of Zada being lynched after his capture were false. However, Shfar’am’s security officer, Jamal Aliam, told Army radio that Zada was attacked by dozens of Arabs after he had been handcuffed and subdued.

MK Mohammed Barakeh warned of new protests if Zada’s lynching would be investigated. Barakeh claims that Zada was killed in order to prevent him from continuing his killing rampage.
No kidding. Is he trying to be yet another person who pulls the classic know-it-all act?

By objecting to an investigation, all that Barakeh is doing is showing off his own mendacity, when there really could be something shady behind all this.
