First Police Death Sentence over Iraq Protest Killings


An Iraqi court sentenced a police officer to death on Sunday after convicting him of killing demonstrators, in the first such sentence in two months of deadly civil unrest.

The Kut criminal court sentenced the police major to be hanged and jailed a police lieutenant colonel for seven years for their roles in the deaths of seven protesters in the southern city on November 2, judicial sources said.

Great mews! Police are not above the law- the same thing should apply to American cops who shoot and kill and lie about why they did it.
