Policeman that saved the American tourist at La Boca will go for trial
The Policeman of the Buenos aires municipality of Avellaneda Luis Chocobar, that defended the American tourist Frank Joseph Wolek when in December he underwent an assault attempt in the Buenos Aires district of La boca, was embargoed by $ 400 thousand within the frame of the cause that investigates him for a supposed " excess of self-defense ".

All it takes is a lawyer to come up with crap like this, there is no excess in self defense, but we all know how laws over rule common sense in this country

That's insane. Somebody should start a support march / demo for the cop.
Count me in if one develops.

Off duty cop will go to jail and thief will get his knife back and compensation for lost time. Tourist who got stabbed will be required to give camera and cell phone to thief as Christmas gift. Welcome to Argentina
Isn't it sad how obvious and ridiculous the justice system is? Can we please get the name of the lawyer and judge representing the deceased scumbag? I really hope the judge never requires the Police to look after him.

The judge in charge of the case is named in today's article in La Nacion.

El juez Velázquez, a cargo del Juzgado Nacional de Menores 1 de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, recaratuló ayer el hecho como "homicidio" por entender que el Chocobar se "excedió en el uso de su legítima defensa".

The Mayor of the city should give Mr. Chocobar a medal. And the Judge who sanctioned the cop should be remove from his post.
BTW,...the thief who died had a criminal record.
