Saco-Indonesia.com - Presiden Amerika Serikat Barack Hussein Obama hari ini mengumumkan tujuh pejabat Rusia terkena sanksi atas krisis politik di Krimea. Mereka adalah Vladislav Surkov, Sergey Glazyev, Leonid Slutsky, Andrei Klishas, Valentina Matviyenko, Dmitry Rogozin, dan Yelena Mizulina.

Amerika juga mengincar aset dari orang-orang non-pejabat Rusia menyokong kemerdekaan Krimea, seperti dilansir kantor berita Associated Press, Senin (17/3). Sanksi oleh Amerika ini keluar tak lama setelah Uni Eropa menetapkan sanksi bagi 21 pejabat Rusia dan Ukraina. Mereka dilarang bepergian ke luar negeri dan set mereka disita.

Perkembangan terbaru ini lahir setelah hasil referendum menyebutkan 96,77 persen penduduk Krimea setuju menjadi negara merdeka.

Krisis politik di Krimea ini berlangsung sejak November tahun lalu. Penduduk di wilayah semenanjung Laut Hitam ini terbelah. Ada yang ingin bergabung dengan Rusia, termasuk presiden tersingkir Victor Yanukovych, sebagian lagi mau masuk ke Uni Eropa.

Ketegangan ini diwarnai demonstrasi berdarah di Ibu Kota Kiev, Ukraina, hingga akhirnya pasukan Rusia masuk ke Krimea.

Presiden AS Barack Obama umumkan sanksi atas tujuh pejabat Rusia

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation
