Please don't say that one year of prison is all they get? Can that be correct?? If yes, there's something seriously wrong here...

A few years ago one of the police agencies here was doing immigration checks. They tried to stop a guy on a moto and he went on the sidewalk to avoid the cop. The cop pulled his pistol out and was about to shoot the guy, when he turned around and saw the gun aimed at him. He stopped. I don't think that guy had any idea of how close he came to dying that day.

They shoot first here.
