Dyomin, 29, produced his Duma documents -- which give him immunity from prosecution -- and walked away free

Maybe this would be a good place to start reforming their government...

This is why I need diplomatic immunity.

That article MUST be one big typo.

Too bad this didn't end like this.
Cops drag him behind building, beat the snot out of him, an say na na na "street justice" farkwad
2003-05-07 06:13:56 PM  
And they wonder why there is so much corruption.
2003-05-07 06:14:21 PM  
Gee...isn't anyone going to mention diplomatic immunity? Considering that has nothing to do with what happened in the article and all...
2003-05-07 06:14:36 PM  
was he a Kennedychov?

John Prescott wants this kind of immunity introduced to Britain:
2003-05-07 06:15:15 PM  
Why didn't the cops just shoot them before the ID was presented....

This is America. Why should we care about what goes on in Britain?

Hey diplomatic immuntity, meet my friend police brutality.
If there ever was a case for police brutality, this is it.

Can't touch me!
Doo-doo, doo, doo, doo-doo, doo
Can't touch me!

I would have been tempted to make him wait in the trunk of the police car while I carefull checked the validity of his credentials.
2003-05-07 06:17:46 PM  
Holy god, no ISR jokes? tsk tsk.

/does not have one either
2003-05-07 06:17:53 PM  
Later that day, Vladislav Dyomin was to realize that his house, car and family were not so immune from police reprisals.

EplMania: Got diplomatic immunity, so Hammer can't sue.
2003-05-07 06:18:54 PM  
Diplomatic immunity is what you grant FOREIGN representatives in your country. So if this had happend in the US, and the guy had been a part of the Russian consulate, then it would be a case of diplomatic immunity.

In this case, it was a RUSSIAN in RUSSIA who happened to be a member of their parliment. So it's not diplomatic immunity, it's something else.
2003-05-07 06:19:40 PM  
In former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Cops beat up you!
2003-05-07 06:19:46 PM  
Damn you Wldncrzy14 and EplMania!

Now I have to watch my Family Guy DVD.

Which episode is that? Oh yeah, E. Peterbus Unum

In other news, Ted Kennedy, Gary Condit and BC premiere Gordon Campbell have all decided to move to Russia for the remainder of their carreers.

i would like one of those cards please. i won't abuse the power, i swear.

Some drunk Russian diplomat was driving in Ottawa, Canada (the capitol), & ran over & killed someone on a sidewalk a couple of years ago. He got off scot-free because he had "Diplomatic Immunity". I believe he fled back to the former USSR & got some kind of slap on the wrist there.
Diplomatic Immunity=Bullshiat

Just let us pretend that it is diplomatic immunity for this thread. It's fun for us, even though it is wrong.

2003-05-07 06:21:07 PM  
Vladislav Dyomin, a member of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia

damn pinko commie liberal hippies with all their peace and love. what they need is a good beat down in the Army!
2003-05-07 06:21:49 PM  
What Sidi said. Jokes aside, the guy in question's just a drunk, violent, and rather amusing politician.
2003-05-07 06:22:12 PM  
This is more like Rodney King-matic immunity, only in reverse.
2003-05-07 06:24:02 PM  

my plan to take over Russia by beating up cops is going smoothly...

Today: Cops, Tomorrow: gold!

Note to all liberal farkers:

These are the enlightened politicians your supporting over Bush.

How long do you think this guy will last though? How eager are the police going to be if his house just happens to be robbed...and his car smashed...
2003-05-07 06:24:59 PM  
No one is above the law . . unless they make the laws.

What do you want to bet that Dyomin's body is found in a dumpster within a month?
2003-05-07 06:26:02 PM  
Respect mah immunitah!
2003-05-07 06:26:03 PM  
i wish every country had politicians that beat up people.
2003-05-07 06:26:09 PM  
The article failed to mention that it was the Dixie Chicks stage manager!
2003-05-07 06:26:25 PM  
And for those grammar nazis complaining over the use of the phrase diplomatic immunity lighten up. Since politicians there are immune to arrest it amounts to the same thing, they just arent in another country.
2003-05-07 06:26:59 PM  
I'm absolutely ashamed that I have to point this out:
While not full immunity, the US Constitution does grant Reps and Sens immunity from arrest for all but the most major offenses ("Treason, felony, breach of the peace") while Congress is in session. To prevent them being detained during an important vote or such.
Oddly enough, this priviledge is meant to deter corruption, not allow it.
2003-05-07 06:27:29 PM  
The Duma can still decide to allow this jackass to be prosecuted, unless the Czar decides to dismiss them before that happens.
2003-05-07 06:28:13 PM  
they should revolt and over throw the Tsar
