"Police officers being prosecuted for the killing of Eric Torell"
"the Prosecutor brought in the day an indictment against three policemen for the killing of Eric Torell."
"A prosecution for involuntary manslaughter, and two for misconduct."
"The police officer be prosecuted for involuntary manslaughter shot Torell, when he had turned his back to."
"chief Prosecutor Martin Tidén has been the investigating authority in the matter."
"Eric Torell, 20, with Down syndrome, was shot to death at 4 o'clock in the morning on August 2. He was out playing with a toy and loved the police. The police fired 25 shots, of which three were met, one of them in the back."
"chief Prosecutor Martin Tidén at the special prosecution office in Stockholm, introduced at the press conference on the fredagsförmiddagen for the course of events. The three police officers who were in place in the courtyard at the Norrbackagatan 41-43 in Stockholm called out to Torell to drop the weapon. When he did not they opened fire."
"of”Thought was a real weapon”"
"According to the prosecutor, it was a reasonable decision, because they really believed that the Torell had a loaded weapon."
" I believe that it is proven that it can be perceived as a real weapon. My conclusion is that when they start shooting, they have legitimately thought that it was a real weapon. This was not inexcusable, said Tidén."
"But in the next stage turns Torell back to the three cops, and then gets shot with a shot in the back. This shot is åtalbart, because the police always ex-post evaluations will assess whether they should continue shooting or not:"
"– There is something called verkanskontroll. It means that after each shot to determine if they can continue to shoot verkanseld, said the prosecutor."
"Unjustifiable shoot in the back"
"He found that when Torell turned back to the should of the shootings have stopped, because nödvärnssituationen then had ceased."
"– Then it is unjustifiable to shoot, noted Tidén."
"Two of the three police officers who gave the fire in the courtyard at the Norrbackagatan prosecuted, one for involuntary manslaughter, the other for misconduct. Polisinsatschefen be prosecuted also for the dereliction of duty."
"– There is not a connection between polisinsatschefens action and Torells death. This is why he is only being prosecuted for misconduct, said Tidén."
"He told me, among other things, that polisinsatschefen in an early stage, had been in contact with Eric Torells dad, who told me that Eric was gone. This information is forwarded he is not to patrol in the courtyard."
"the Prosecutor stated at the press conference that it was not possible to investigate the order in which the three shots met Eric Torell."
"not first aid"
"The three police officers who shot Torell gave him first aid, because they made the assessment that he could have explosives on the body. Only after about 15 minutes, came piketen to the site, and started with a rescue operation:"
"– But the coroner has said that the time delay does not play any role, his life still had not gone to rescue, said Tidén."
"The killing shot went through Eric Torells the aorta. Another shot went through the liver, a third got stuck in the left shoulder. Torell was shot not when he was lying down, the study shows."
"The three officers deny the crimes and their lawyers believe that it is far from clear that there will be convictions."
