    French jeweller who shot thief becomes online hero

    As social networks blaze with messages of support for the French jeweller who shot and killed a burglar in Nice last week, the dead man's family fears that the judicial process could be swayed by public opinion.

    The family of a French robber shot dead in the Riviera city of Nice last week has expressed disgust at the outpouring of online support for the jeweler who was both the burglar’s victim and his killer.
    “Justice is not carried out on Facebook or Twitter,” the family’s lawyer, Philippe Soussi, said at a press conference following a demonstration in support of the jeweler, 67-year-old Stephan Turk.
    Turk shot 19-year-old Anthony Asli as he was leaving Turk’s jewelry store after robbing it. An accomplice escaped on a motorbike.
    “We’ve lost track of the meaning of [Turk’s] act in this incident,” Soussi proceeded to say at the press conference. “Legitimate self-defence is one thing; vigilante self-defence is another. Justice cannot be handed down under the pressure of public opinion.”

    Messages of support for Turk have flooded the Internet since the incident. A Facebook page entitled “Support for the Nice jeweler” had roughly 1.6 million followers as of Tuesday mid-day, while an online petition pledging support for Turk has drawn over 58,000 signatures.
    In France, 98% of people accused of manslaughter end up going to prison. But Turk, who has been charged with murder, has been allowed to remain confined to an undisclosed location as long as he wears an electronic bracelet.


    ‘People are defending a murderer!’
    Alexandra Asli, the sister of the dead burglar, has expressed her shock at the “magnitude” of the public reaction.
    She believes “people are sullying the memory” of her brother.
    “He was not violent. The weapons he carried were fake,” Asli said at the press conference, describing her brother as “impressionable”. “He was full of life, he was in love…OK, he was a little delinquent. But today, people are defending a murderer!”
    As for Turk, Asli said that she hopes to see him go to prison. “He shot [my brother] in the back. He killed him as if he were a dog,” she said.
    French jeweller who shot thief becomes online hero - FRANCE - FRANCE 24

    I have followed for a very long time all the victims of robberies in France, when the French government victimize most of the criminals. The people are going to react and defend themselves when the government "politicians" don't do their job to protect "les biens et les personnes": the properties and the people.

    The French jeweller is an hero, and the 1.6 millions people supporting him on facebook and others social media have spoken!

    It looks like France has the same problem as we have in the USA. Liberal politicians are more interested in protecting the rights of criminals and terrorists than the rights of honest citizens.

    40 years ago in the USA if someone got hurt or killed during the commission of a crime, no one cared and they lost their rights. That is the way it should be and it is the only way to deter crime.

    In cowboy days it was a hanging offense to steal a man's horse. If you got caught, you were going to be hung. No one questioned that wisdom in those days and it did make thieves think before they stole someone's horse.

    People are getting tired of having their right to defend themselves taken away. The fact is that this happens everywhere when liberals have too much power and the courts have swung too much to the left.

    This part is almost funny. People should piss on the memory of her brother. There is no question that he was a thief shot in the commission of a crime.

    Your are exactly right that we have the same problems. This year they are even pushing for less imprisonment, so very soon they all will have an electronic bracelet. Speaking of which the criminal killed in France had a very long list on his criminal history and had already an electronic bracelet when he committed this crime.

    There is a lot of burglars attacking elderly people, they torch your car, they rape women in trains, they steal in stores. they are cowards. There is no doubt in my mind that people are starting to take their defense themselves because the French government is not doing its job, all they say is that people should let the justice doing its job. What about before it happened? What about security? What about monitoring the recidivists? I can go on and on about this subject.

    Honestly when I see the liberals going after the 2nd Amendment here in US, it is like a slow motion of losing liberties and freedom and the result will be like France today. Criminals will always find a way to get illegals weapons to commit crimes. Laws or executive orders will never affect the criminals, but disarm the law abiding citizen.

    Another example "Orne, France, burgled 53 times, the owner shot with his hunting shotgun two buglars, and burgled again one more time after this incident which put the total at 54 times", now the owner is in troubles. What did the French government? Put the owner in jail?

    Use google translate: Orne : cambriolé 54 fois, il a tiré à la 53e - Le Point

    I am glad I don't live over there anymore, this country is going to hell in a hand basket.

    Wait until Sharia Law replaces the current system. That may not be far away.

    Before that, the elite will hide their "EU utopia" mess with a civil war, because there are all the ingredients for the burst. We should thank our politicians, they are reducing our military forces, it is like an economic agenda setup to destroy us.
