Egyptian policemen beat to death in public a man they believed was the killer of a police officer who was shot on Saturday morning in the Upper Egypt governorate of Beni Suef, according to Ahram's Arabic news website reporter.

Investigations officer Captain Hesham Kamal El-Din Ta'ma was shot in Beni Suef city in the early hours of Saturday morning while he was breaking up a brawl involving firearms between two families in El-Ghamrawi and Ezbet El-Safih areas.

Ta'ma was transported to Al-Zahra' Hospital in Beni Suef city, but succumbed to his injuries an hour later.

During the slain officer's military funeral, several police officers and personnel, who had arrested Hossam Abo El-Regal, a man they accused of killing Ta'ma, in an apartment in Beni Suef city, then led him to the site of the funeral, tied him down in a mini-truck,  and beat him to death as tens of mourners watched.

According to Ahram Online's reporter on the scene, the officers and police personnel attacked Abo El-Regal in the presence of senior security and political officials in Beni Suef who were leading the procession, including General Ahmed Shaarawi, the governorate's security director and and Maher Beybers, Beni Suef's governor.

Hypocrisy and Barbarity
As a proud Egyptian all my life, as one who will defend Egypt to the death, as one who believes that if we dig really deep, we will find only good in Egypt, I sit here submitting to the hard truth that I was WRONG! If you dig deep down, you find ROT! Maybe that's what humanity is, deep down, not just us. How can those in charge of keeping law and order so blatantly stamp it with their boots? Will they get away with this???

Courts for Mubarak's Gang/Death for Average Egyptian
It is amazing that all legal procedures must be followed for the henchmen of the Mubarak era, but the police think nothing of killing a man "they suspect" of killing a police officer. The average Egyptian is not due the same standards of justice as the old regiem? But then the police know thet are under the protection of The Brotherhood which apparently, by its silence, condones this behavior.

Police brutality
I am at loss for words. However, from what I read, this is a MURDER carried on by heartless thugs. What do you expect from lawlessness? Is this the kind of government that was voted in by the Egyptian people? I don't think so!

Sympathy for thugs
in the heart of the issue is unarmed policeman that was killed by an armed thug. The police force needs to have adequate gears to fight criminals. Egypt is infested with a new wave of violent crimes. The other side of the problem is weak justice system that would free any arrested thugs. No not rush to blame the police, there areva lot of thugs that deserve nothing less than a firing squad to clean the society from their evil acts.

Police need to set an example
Jimmy the police have to set an example by abiding by the law and not taking justice into their own hands, they should be setting an example, not behaving like thugs! In any democracy everyone deserves a trial. Egypt does not want to develop the 'Lynch' mob mentality!

Understanding the issues
The real issue here is, the savage and brutal way of killing a man on the assumption of killing a policeman, in a civilized society in which Egypt isn't, would have legal right to stand a trial, are we in agreement here?

Total disbelief!
I am in total disbelief, read this twice, before the full meaning of the words sunk in! If this is the sort of public brutality used by senior police officers and condoned by top officials such as a General and a Governor, one can just imagine the atrocities carried out behind closed doors. We only hear and read about a fraction of the torture and brutality that is being conducted. The revolution continues.........
