We have another blogger being prosecuted for embarrassing a government. The Russian prosecutors have charged former police major Alexei Dymovsky who achieved international acclaim with his video blogs accusing colleagues of corruption and forcing witnesses to accuse innocent people. He appealed to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to do something. He did, it appears. Dymovsky has been charged with abuse of office.
Putin is probably not the best guy to ask to tackle abuse by police and national security forces. Prosecutors have accused Dymovsky of “fraud committed by a person using his official position.”
In his video (which went viral) Dymovsky stated “I want to show you from the inside the life of cops across Russia … the ignorance, the boorishness, the recklessness, where officers die because of their dim-witted bosses.”
He was promptly fired by his boorish bosses and now faces jail. Offcials say that they found no evidence of their own corruption and abuse.

What ever happened to Oliver North?
“Offcials say that they found no evidence of their own corruption and abuse.” (Well, said.) Oh, the many foxes guarding our hen houses, both here and abroad…
What follows is a link to this morning’s WSJ story about the UBS informant who helped our government recover $780 million from those who evaded taxes. He was sentenced to 40 months, I believe.
And then there was Thomas Tamm? (Any news on him? Last I heard, he was struggling to raise money for his defense.)
