In Russia, the law-abiding among the population still leaves much to be desired. This also applies to some “law enforcement officers”. They often have a sense of their own impunity and they begin to commit one crime after another. Many Russians are afraid of police more gangsters. Where this fear comes from? You can understand it from some extent from the incidents discussed below.
In addition, I can say that the essence is the difficulty of finding justice among the police officers who have violated the law and the danger they represent. Alas, in Russia things are often this way.
There are only some (among the proven) cases of crimes against the sexual inviolability of minors committed by former police officers and prosecutors. Meanwhile, I assume that the bulk of such crimes remain in the shadows.
Evidence for each of the following cases are the convictions of the relevant Russian courts, which are open access.
Goryachy Klyuch, Krasnodar Territory, 2015, a juvenile affairs inspector.
In August 2015, the Inspector for Minors Affairs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs «Goryachy Klyuch » Ivan Sorokoumov put a 12-year-old girl into his car, took him to outside the city and raped him.
