    Man in wheelchair accused of violent crime

    Meet Anton Mamaev


    He is 28 years old, from Moscow, Russia. he suffers from a rare genetic disease, which has gradually atrophied the muscles in his back, now leaving his unable to walk, confined to his wheelchair, and weighing in at only 19 kilograms, like a child.

    Anton did not let this stop him from living a full life, however, he earned a university degree in economics, now has his own logistics business, runs a charity for disabled children, and has married his school sweetheart and, in what is considered a medical miracle, they have a perfectly healthy baby daughter


    Now, shockingly, Anton has been arrested, he stands accused of, get this, violently intimidating two other men, both big and strong guys, one - a former special forces soldier, no less! They claim he extorted money from them, and this moped/scooter as well


    Right now, he has been moved from jail to a hospital, under guard, as he is now feeling well


    Much of the public are enraged. Online, people are talking of "police lawlessness", cruel cops and prosecutors having a bit of fun at the expense of a defenseless invalid. The police are not exactly well liked in Russian society anyway. This case is only fanning those flames.

    The accusers say Mamaev may be disabled and helpless himself, but he has some tough friends, supposedly - gangsters

    They claim he openly said to hand over what he wanted, or his pals will come and take it anyway, and it won't be pretty, basically.

    Mamaev has been sentenced to 4.5 years in Siberia for alleged violent robbery, which many say is a death sentence for him:

    I don't know. Makes no sense. What would a guy in a wheelchair even do with a bloody moped? Sell it, I guess...

    Weird... Very weird case...

    Maybe he wanted to ride around in something faster than a wheel chair?

    I have to admit, I'm not very sympathetic because he rolled the dice when he decided to have a baby. I would prefer that people with horrible genetic diseases adopt.

    It was a gamble definitely. His sister apparently also has the syndrome too... They truly got lucky with the baby... But I won't blame him for wanting to experience the joy of real fatherhood, especially as he was aware the disease would inevitably shorten his lifespan, meaning he didn't have that much time for it either...

    As for the case... I don't know. Really don't. Will keep checking into it for more updates and info.

    Well you are more generous/forgiving than I am, because I do blame him. It was a selfish decision in my opinion and one that could have had really bad consequences for their baby. He should have considered adoption instead. Though I guess since the baby did turn out healthy that doesn't help my argument any. But I'll stand by it. Because people with serious genetic diseases should refrain from procreating in my opinion. It's just too much of a risk.

    Funny he and his wife did not agree with you. Now they have a healthy child. You post you do not believe in censorship,yet you want to decide for others?

    I am quite sure they had tests all along the way. I am happy for them. The man has suffered enough. The joy of having a healthy child is amazing for them.

    The man knows what a joy it is.i am happy for him,too.he suffered enough.

    But to get to the point of the Op, that is shameful. What worries me now,is that we have a narcisstic,low information man in the WhiteHouse,who would love to have the power Putin does. And a Republican Congress,led by 2 men who are as craven as Trump is. And,I am not sure we have enough decent Republicans to stand against him. So far,I have seen very few.

    You may approve of that,I do not.

    Be very afraid.

    Expect Trump to do things like weaponizing the IRS and targeting private organizations and individuals.

    It's coming.

    Your doomsday obsession is coming true and will destroy us all.

    Aw, you're still butthurt that the IRS did due diligence in making sure that
    PACs, from Dems and Repubs alike, were legit and therefore earned tax exempt status?
    Time to get over it.....or I'll accuse you of being a typical rightwing whiner.
