Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "

Think how much creepier it would be to see them killing other kids when they look so squishy-cheeked and little.

This is truly beautiful.
Am I the only one offended that he slaps her ass in front of what I presume is a family Christmas dinner? x
Well no, but you have to remember this is The Doctor. Even if it’s a ploy, he’s an alien. Never been a human boyfriend before (or even at all most likely). He’s trying his best to look convincing, and well boyfriends do that sometimes. He doesn’t understand it’s not appropriate. Unless he’s trying to be inappropriate. We don’t know yet.
Well, one, he’s 1200 years old so don’t give me that crap that he’s an alien and doesn’t know how humans act. No. He spends so much of his time around humans and on Earth that this argument that he doesn’t know better is outright ridiculous.
Two, would it make it better if he’s ‘trying to be inappropriate’?
Please excuse me for interrupting, but I’d like to point out that the Doctor has been around humans for goodness knows how many years now, he’s witnessed human relationships and how families work, so there’s no excuse for his behaviour at all, and I don’t see anyway of justifying how he could be acting inappropriately.
Considering The Doctor marries MULTIPLE people in history, and has multiple sexual partners and love interests, his behavior is very much on point. We already know that he has problems with settling down and keeping a love interest. In fact, this is pretty congruent with his instinct to run away from the choice that decided the fate of his fellow Timelords. This really isn’t a surprise.
And in all cases he seems like he’s gotten himself into something he hasn’t quite bargained for in the first place. There IS a certain tendency for the Doctor to play the part, and then find himself too far into playing that part that gets himself into more serious territory. In the case of River, it sticks (sort of, but completely messed up chronologically), and Rose, circumstances don’t permit it for very long, but for the most part he’s running away from it entirely.
When it comes to love, The Doctor has some tremendous faults. He’s honestly going through the motions of something he doesn’t truly understand. This is something that he admires of humans, their ability for feeling pure love for one another. I think he has a huge problem with figuring this out, and tries anything out that may lead to it, or at the least play the part. I personally think he’s just trying to blend in.
Not to mention, while someone can learn to understand most things about a culture that is different from the one they are born, one never really truly assimilates into that culture. There’s always something a bit off about them that says “You’re not from around here…”
Aside from all that, this is also a series of writers’ choices. What you’re mad about is not exactly The Doctor, but his writers. They could have just as easily left all this out and chosen something else for the Doctor to not understand, but above all it’s a marketing point. More people will watch. That’s it. This is business. This is humankind.
