"Eric Torells death in Stockholm on 2 August last year is a tragedy in all ways. A summer night that turned into the worst nightmare you can imagine. It is a tragedy for his family and for his friends, but also for the three police officers who responded to an alarm about a gunman at the Södermalm streets and will now be prosecuted for dereliction of duty and involuntary manslaughter.management had the intention to do wrong, but the result has become the worst thing imaginable."
"Everyone realizes that the individual polisernas task was extremely difficult. They were forced to make life-saving decisions in fractions of a second in a situation where they felt that their own life could be threatened. The prosecutor notes that the guns that Eric Torell bar could be perceived as real and loaded."
"the Arguments is not enough"
"But it is not enough. It is exactly what the prosecutor says. There was information polispatrullen should have known before the intervention. The offender previously appeared threatening in the vicinity had already been arrested. And even if the first shots may have been self-defense continued firing also then Eric turned his back to the officers. All in all were fired 25 shots."
"the Trial: Eric Torells death is about to sort out the three police responsibility in a deeply tragic situation. But it is inevitable that it will also ask questions about the police weapon use and violence in the society."
"According to the police department itself is deadly force, as a result of shots from the police extremely unusual. In average the use of police officers verkanseld at about the 15 occasions of the year. Over the past 20 years, an average of one person a year, shot dead by the police. The last few years seems, however, cases become more numerous, although the numbers are small."
"Discuss the causes and actions"
"We must address the causes, as polisernas of the vulnerable situation and increased presence of firearms in criminal environments. But we must also talk about measures. There are elements in the police training and training that could be changed to avoid situations like the one when Eric Torell lost their lives? Are the equipment and armament that would make that fewer police officers felt compelled to use verkanseld?"
"We must do everything to it that happened on 2 August does not occur again."
