The chairman of the Committee on Immigration Affairs, Absorption and Diaspora MK Dr. Avraham Negosa (Likud) has accused the forces of ordering to use excessive force to neutralize a former IDF soldier with apparent mental problems, saying that the incident on Friday at Bat Yam proves that the police has failed learn the lessons of the previous clashes.
On Fridays, Yehuda Biadga, 24, a former IDF soldier who was released from duty due to trauma, was shot dead by the Bat Yam police after he was reported as he ran with a knife in a stairwell of the apartment.
The police say that when the officers saw Biadga and ordered him to stop, the former IDF soldier loaded them, with the knife still in his hand. Fearing for their lives, says the police department, one of the officers fired two shots at the central section of Biadga, neutralizing him. Biadga was evacuated to a local hospital but died shortly after his arrival.
"My condolences are with the family in this very tragic and sad accident," Negosa said Arutz Sheva. "This man had served in the Israeli Defense Forces and is a citizen who deserves protection … Now it is impossible for the family to request assistance from the police and they must eventually bury their child."
"I call on the Minister of Public Security and the Minister of Justice to put an end to these tragedies that are taking place among the Ethiopian Jews, the former police commissioner unequivocally said that the color [makes them] suspected. Nobody denied. Everyone is shocked by the accident. What should be done now and quickly is to investigate and prosecute those responsible, "said Negosa.
Negro asks why the police officer shot to kill, and cited several reports that claimed that the officer had shot at Biadga's head.
"According to the media, the police officer fired at the head, why?" The young man was not carrying firearms. "They had to keep him alive." In the worst case, the police officer could have shot him to the legs. and do not kill him. "
According to Negosa, the police continue to repeat the mistakes made in previous comparisons.
"In the past I have filed a law proposal that field police must wear body cameras, and a decision has been taken by the police to do just that because it has not been implemented? 39. Excessive control of the Ethiopian community We have made great efforts to build trust between the community and the police.The budgets have been invested in workshops and the police are repeating their mistakes.Ethiopian immigrants are civilians, they are not terrorists. it may be that in a well-run country like Israel, there are police officers who do what they want.
