My attitude towards the Belarusian militia changed over the years. From respectful in the 80’s, indifferent in the 90’s to a purely negative in the 2000’s. The transition from a real struggle against real crime to a system in the form of a fabrication of administrative and criminal cases, mass prosecution of innocent people, extortion, bullying and complete impunity for everything committed by our militia in the last thirty years has been carried out, it must be admitted, “brilliantly”.
The fight against simple-selling grandmothers, invalids in the metro, perjury in the courts, the beating of peaceful demonstrators is, in my opinion, the most innocuous of what the Belarusian police are doing.
But recently only one case and just one policeman arose in my soul a grain of doubt in the non-senility of all police officers in a decent society.
I was invited to an event that took place in a training center with a foreign name and address, where the house number represented a complex fraction. Gadgets the house did not find. Under the same number, but without fractions, was the German embassy. Near the embassy there were enough people, but, strangely enough, not the Belarusian and German appearance.
The only local one seemed to me a young ensign of police from the embassy’s guard. I asked him about the location of the building I wanted at the appropriate address. But for him the task was difficult. I left the embassy for about a hundred meters and began to call up a colleague, who also went to this event and previously visited this training center. I’m standing, I’m calling, waiting for an answer.
Suddenly I see how the ensign of the police is going to me. It turned out that this nice young man found out where the building I wanted was and came to tell where it was and how it would be more convenient for me to get there … Did not ignore my request, did not take it too lazy, did not consider it my own business, cared about the problem of a stranger and an outsider for him of a person ….
Now I think now: how right and right is it to judge the entire police for this guy? Or to judge this militiaman on the rest of his colleagues? Does not work…. Dislocation of the brain. And before this incident, everything was so clear.
And I do not want to think that this young man will ever beat the elderly, lie in court, falsify evidence, pee on the head of adolescents ….
Remain human, young man. Thanks you. And I want to believe in you. Despite the dislocation of the brain ….
