Wild West in Georgia’s backcountry

2010-12-09 21:22

Wild West in Georgia's backcountryEye for eye or a dog's death for a dog are the obsolete principles Georgia still goes by. The government's assurances that Sakartvelo has the world's best police force hit against stony mistrust of common Georgians. If you want something to be done well, do it yourself, - people think ready to take up all activities including punishment of criminals. Who could have ever thought that of all Western laws the Georgian heart will prefer "the law of Wild West"!


Why do you adopt our weaknesses, not our strengths? - would be America's reproach to Georgia. Indeed, there are very few people in the States proud of Ku Klux Klan. Extrajudicial executions are not exactly what should be adopted from the country seeking the role of a global gendarme - rigid but fair.

Judge Lynch does not look like a nice character. His trial has nothing in common with modern democratic requirements. Still, this method of punishing criminals is what Georgians appreciate. Daily stories Georgian government tells its citizens about the wonderful country they live in, about nice policemen and carefree living, don't help.

One warning for Georgian leaders: it is dangerous to tell so many lies. Poor citizens risk losing their mind if what they hear is so different from what they see. To preserve mental health Georgians either must live with their eyes shut or be guided by Kozma Prutkov's principle: "Reading the word "bull" on an elephant's cage - don't trust your eyes". But sometimes reality is much more convincing than all kinds of self-deceptiveness.

Residents of Karagadzhi village of Signakhi district want to lynch their neighbor, Eldar Karimov, an Azeri, for three murders he has committed.

Several days ago Karimov came to the gasoline station in a state of drunkenness and demanded a full tank. But the problem was that the station was closed at that moment. The personnel refused to service the drunken Azeri. He went away... This would be a nice ending to the story. But being drunk he decided that the refusal was a serious insult.

The fuel he had in the car was just enough to reach home, take his submachine gun and come back to the gasoline station to take revenge. Berserk Karimov shot down three employees - Murad Shanshashvili, 23; Ilia Papashvili, 24 and Vazha Natroshvili, 41. The forth employee, Nikoloz Papashvili, 25, was wounded in the leg and was taken to hospital.

The outrage over, Karimov got back to his senses and went on the run. He was caught on the next day hiding on a cattle farm of the district.
