Only in Ingushetia

Only in Ingushetia would the cop who “accidentally” shot and killed a journalist who was being held under arrest share his victim’s last name without relation, and only in the Russian justice system would such a person be let out of prison after serving three months of a two-year sentence.

The killer of journalist Magomed Yevloyev is walking free today, and the outrageous message to the nation’s police force is that there is no penalty greater than a slap on the wrist for killing a journalist.  Perhaps the released cop can meet up with Yuri Budanov to celebrate.
