    Privilege

    It's a wonderful thing. Especially so in Russia.

    This is from two days ago:

    20 year old Eduard Zinnurov

    son of Deputy Governor of Russia's Ulyanovsk oblast region, Vildan Zinnurov

    a car full of his bodyguards, and another full of his friends, all with connections to organized crime, chased a traffic policeman who dared to pull over Eduard for speeding, yesterday, chased him down through the streets of Ulyanovsk, caught him, pulled him from his car, beat him, shot him with a pistol, and then one of them, possibly Eduard himself, ran the man over several times with his car. The policeman, identified only by first name, Andrei, remains in hospital in severe state, after several surgeries. He has a wife and little daughter.

    It is also reported than when they were beating him, another man, a passerby, shouted at them to stop, and Eduard yelled back at him to get the fuck out of there or they will do same to him, and nobody will do anything about it, "you know who my father is? My father is Deputy Governor, he sits next to [Governor] Morozov, on your TV!"

    Another interesting detail is that young Eduard had problems with the law before: in February 2014, he hit and killed an old man with his car. Nothing happened to him for that. And there had been other incidents, fights at bars and night clubs, as well as violent sexual assaults on women, all of which had been made to go away by his father's office and powerful friends.

    That's Russia. So called "Golden Youth", children of the rich and powerful, the families who rule Russia, live above the law, and do whatever they want, and raise their hands on whoever they want, even police, as you can see. If your daddy is high enough, you can fuck up even a cop without any repercussions.
    ??? ?????????????? ??????????? ??????? ???????? ????????? ?????????? ???????????? 03.01.2015 ? 16:33 ?????????? ??????? ??????????

    Only thing is, this time he may not get off: the policeman he quite possibly crippled for life, happens to himself be the son of a very respected police general Sergei Arapov

    He has gone into hiding now, a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Seems he has finally crossed a line he shouldn't have.
    ??? ????-??????????? ??????????? ??????? ???????? ? ????

    People over there are now betting who wins: police general vs. deputy governor? lol

    Fact is, police in Russia are under federal authority.

    They serve the Kremlin

    not some governor, let alone deputy governor. And they don't like when one of their own gets beaten, shot, and run over with a car by some punk who thinks he is God because his daddy occupies a high local seat. And I have a feeling that general Arapov won't rest until the one who did that to his son pays for it. So, there may be some good news in this

    People capable of empathy, BD. No need to be senselessly shitty, especially over a story about the brutal attempted murder of a police officer.

    Or is this a formal relinquishing of any remaining moral high ground?

    Do you actually care about some obscure story of local event in Russia? And do you have a need to hear about all these obscure local events from Russia on a daily basis?

    I don't have nearly the same level of personal interest in the daily goings on in Russia, but that's not the same as "not giving a fuck". Oftentimes, I must admit, reading the various articles that The Man posts I have a mild relief knowing that things may feel bad over here sometimes, but they're still not Russia bad. A guilty relief, perhaps.

    That having been said, even though the assault and attempted murder of a Russian police officer effects me personally marginally less than the same situation occurring to an officer in, say, Montana, or Kansas, or Maine, it takes almost not time or effort to feel bad for them, their loved ones, and their situation.
