So yes, I'm sorry, but in countries where the justice system works like that, yes, it's good he got shot. Because otherwise he'd have simply walked away with no problem, at least now he'll truly stay in hospital at least and get new exams to see if he still has the former problem, and with luck he'll be pronounced healthy and be actually sent to jail afterwards.
I know that the Croatian justice system is doing a bit better nowadays, but in Romania and Bulgaria, the police is either payed by mafia groups or afraid of them and many get away. Not all... because some mafia groups pay more then others. And then some mafia leaders get to be voted into the parliament... so yea.
It's bad for Bulgarians and Romanians, but us Greeks don't get treated much better in western Europe.
It wouldn't surprise me if some in Britain start advocating shoveling all of us from the Balkans into ovens to clean up their dreary little isle.

This reminds me of a joke about northern UK more then England... but it might be offensive... maybe I shouldn't tell it.
Well you know what, I will, in the end it's a funny joke and not truly mean at all, it's just a joke:
A french reporter wanted to test if the Scottish people are as truly cheapskates as people say. So he decides to go on a trip to Scotland.
He passes the border entering Scotland and on the way he goes thirsty. He decides to try his luck and knock on the door of a house. An old man exits.
The french reporter asks for a bit of water. After a minute the old man comes with a large bowl filled with milk.
The french guy drinks almost half of it after which he says:
"But you people are not cheapskates at all! What people talk is not true at all! I asked for water and actually got a full bowl of milk, thank you!"
"Well boy, you're welcomed" said the old man. "In the end, nobody wanted to drink that milk since a rat had drowned in it."
The french boy drops the bowl hearing those words to which the old man gets angry and yells:
"After I gave you milk you break my grandmother's night piss bowl?!"
Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.- Thucydides
There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.- Eugen Weber
Seems a romanian newspaper did a counter-campaign to this:
Is it really THAT bad in bulgaria and romania? Surely they have had growth when they joined the EU?
