A man who tried to shoot police with a mop received a year in prison
A district police officer and an inspector for juvenile affairs came to the house where a large family lives after the inspection.
However, the head of the family began to resent this fact, swear at obscene language and eventually said that he would shoot the police. The man then took a mop and ran with it into the yard to the police.
But soon the man succumbed to persuasion and postponed the mop after which an appropriate protocol was drawn up, since the man threatened the lives of police officers during the execution.
The court found the man guilty under Art. 318 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (use of violence against a representative of the authorities) and sentenced him to 1 year in a colony-settlement.
The man admitted his guilt and repented, but he believes that the sentence is unreasonably cruel and filed an appeal with the regional court, which left the sentence unchanged.
