• the operation commander burst into their threat and risk assessment and coordinated't bet on a safe way and the prosecution, therefore, for dereliction of duty.

• The two relatively recent graduates of the police officers charged with involuntary manslaughter, respectively, misconduct shot against Eric Torell after their so-called imaginary nödvärnsrätt ceased. Under all the circumstances, it was ”inexcusable” that they shot against Eric in the later stage.

that was submitted to the Stockholm district court after the killing of Eric Torell, 20.

the Evidence consists of autopsy reports, site investigations and re-enactments from the site, and over 120 interviews with the people involved.

According to the prosecutor had the police officers the opportunity to satisfy itself that Eric Torell no longer posed any threat when he turned his back to them, and that he no longer directed its guns against them.

– There is a thing called verkanskontroll. After each shot, a police officer determine whether they should continue to use verkanseld, said prosecutor Martin Tidén at the press conference that was held in connection with the indictment was published.

It is about an incredibly short period of time – and the police were extremely pressed in this mode. Until Eric Torell turned his back to them, they had namely, even according to the prosecutor, the right to open fire.

– Before the plaintiff turns its back on them, I can not prove that it committed no crime. After he was done it was obviously indefensible, " continued Martin Tidén.

turns makes then one of the cops guilty of negligence to another death and the other to the misconduct – which Tidén thus consider themselves to be led in evidence by the investigation, which was presented on Friday.

For example, is the bullet that caused Eric Torells death connected to the police, who now stands accused of involuntary manslaughter. The police should also, according to the indictment, before he fired the killing shot, tried to ascertain the impact of the previously fired the shots had and if it was still justified to shoot against Eric Torell.

the operation commander, a 39-year-old man, according to the indictment to have early in the process disregarded what been through to have ”failed to take action, consider safety aspects and ”basic tactical concepts” in the planning and management of the event. However, there is no direct link to the insatschefens action and Eric Torells death, why the operation commander only be prosecuted for misconduct.

the operation commander failed in their threat and risk assessment. Operation commander knew that a man with a weapon was in the area and that it is in the area before touched a man in addition to the explicit threats to shoot police officers if he encountered them – yet coordinated he not bet in a way that minimised the risks to police officers themselves would be able to start shooting at each other.

Eric Torells dad, who was out looking after his son, also had contact with the operation commander in the area, but that the operation commander assured itself of the man who had been seen with a weapon could have been Eric Torell and without operation commander assured that the father and the bortsprungne son was not exposed to danger is also a basis for the defendants tjänstefelet.

the operation commander consists of interviews with the same and with a number of other police officers. One of them, which is included in the mission, testify that they started to go to the site before they even ordered thither. They also requested that the use of förstärkningsvapen, which must prove that there was a threat that the operation commander is not taken seriously.

The three police officers who shot against Eric Torell did not carry out any life-saving efforts on the ground. It was only when instansstyrkan came as the man approached Eric Torell. Then they see Eric's weapons lying on the ground, with the barrel pointed towards them. When they poke aside that they understand directly that it is a genuine weapon.

" this is a very tragic event for all involved. However, I must ignore the feelings that it evoked, noted Martin Tidén.
