We were expecting charges of first degree murder (with aggravating circumstances.— “Kommersant”). And we want other police officers arrested too. We urge the authorities to revise the charges to reflect the actual guilt of the police,”— said in a statement. So do those who took to the streets of American cities.Paul Tarasenko
