Gunshots heard as hostage deadline passes after left-wing group take Turkish prosecutor prisoner

A far-left Turkish group has taken an Istanbul prosecutor hostage and threatened to kill him within the hour unless police confess to killing a teenage boy.

The Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front published disturbing photographs of terrified prosecutor Mehmet Selim Kiraz with a gun to his head on their official Facebook page.

The deadline passed at 3.36pm local time (12.35pm GMT) and two gunshots were heard.
The prosecutor is leading an investigation into the death of 15-year-old Berkin Elvan who was severely wounded after being hit on the head by a tear-gas canister fired by a police officer during anti-government protests in Istanbul in June 2013.

After spending 269 days in a coma, Elvan eventually died on March 11 last year.

    Yes that’s a great way to get justice for someone injured during a riot, shoot the person investigating the crime. – SARC

    • Leftists and muslims both going after the law today, hard to tell them apart.

        I see no reason to try; they are both trying to destroy western culture and nations. The only difference between the left vs islam running Canada would be like the difference between getting shot in the stomach with a 9mm vs a 40cal. Both are going to hurt, you’ll bleed a lot and in the end you’ll be just as dead.

        Here is how I see the differences.
        Gender equality – Islam treats women as 2nd class citizens, the left demonizes men and tries to treat them as 2nd class.

        Freedom of religion – Islam and left both have NONE. ISlam you have to worship a false god and in the lefty paradise you are forbidden to worship anything but the earth.

        Private property – None in either

        Government type – Both are totalitarian dictatorships, the difference is in the way the laws are worded.

          Grim assessment but a lot of truth in it. Now to join a mens’ rights association. *wink*

            Not grim just realistic about what either of those options really mean for people. There is the third option.
