    The whole issue was a circus act to please and apease: there was no problem here: we're at war. Its absurd and pathetic that when an officer 'strikes' an enemy, without a mortal blow or repeatedly, intending abuse, that they can be held liable. Meanwhile, across the 'pond' the europeans beat the hell out of protestors, innocent bystanders: in England, Denmark, Berlin, Amsterdam, the Czech Republic, Sweden, etc. And the beautiful thing: its all caught on video: all over Youtube and especially Live Leak. The whole thing is absurd. Let the man go and deport the palestinian who pressed the charges...its only a matter of time before he does something horrible to an Israeli.
