In Erzurum's Palandöken district ten women accused of stealing shoes from
in front of people's homes by entering the TOKI residences, which include
a police lodging, were followed closely by police units. Yesterday, when the
women were confronted by police and journalists in Topcuoğlu Neighborhood
they began angrily throwing rocks and their shoes. The police unsheathed their
nightsticks and warned the women that 'if you don't stop throwing those
things we're coming after you!'
One of the women, realizing that she was going to be arrested, took off her
clothes and even pulled her pants down as a protest against the police.
Shopkeepers who were watching the incident chastised the half-naked
woman. She was then forced to put her clothes back on and along with
her cohorts was loaded into police vehicles and taken to the police station.
The women returned the items and shoes they had stolen and were released.
