You know here in Chicago, the statute of limitations is 3 years for felonies and 18 months for misdemeanors. I'd assume assaulting a law enforcement officer is a felony, however if the most recent incident allegedly occurred in 2006, it wouldn't fly. Of course in Israel, all bets are off when it comes to Palestinian Israelis. Settlers can beat the daylights out of native indegenious Palestinians in the occupied territories while the IDF closes a blind eye, yet when an Arab MK protests, he's charged. Racist state of Israel indeed.
