Vitaly Kaloyev: a murderer who was richly rewarded

Another Blast from the Past: Vitaly Kaloyev murdered the air traffic controller Peter Nielsen because of a plane crash in 2002.

Well, Kaloyev should have exploded Skyguide rather than killing Nielsen! Kidding. I just don’t think killing someone who did not do anything wrong is the right thing to do.

Some thoughts on Vitaly Kaloyev.
For those who are unaware of who this piece of shit is, he is the father of two children who died in a tragic air disaster in 2002. He made the questionable choice to search for the bodies of his children and wife and understandably, was devastated by the horrific loss of his family.
Almost two years later he hunted down the air traffic controller who he believed to be at fault for the tragedy. Vitaly Kaloyev butchered this man, Peter Nielsen, who had been so devastated by what had happened on his watch that he had NEVER returned to his job as an ATC.
Curiously, although Vitaly Kaloyev was convicted for the murder he KNOWINGLY committed (with premeditation btw), he was released in 2007 and has been lauded a ‘hero’.

  1. I agree. What continues to horrify me is the people who think he was right to murder Nielsen. It was premeditated, vicious, and just plain wrong. My opinion of Vitaly has not changed in all this time and I doubt it ever will. Horrible tragedy in every way and certainly not something I think his family would have wanted.

    • Poor Nielsen. He did forget the past, but not Kaloyev. News articles are true that Kaloyev has a mental disorder. Hmm…

      • Oh, and here I thought he was a ‘hero’ as some would have us believe. Not that mental illness precludes heroism; far from it. This guy is no hero.

      • Well, your article actually made me face what reality is all about: That murderers in Kaloyev’s hometown become “heroes.” He is only a hero in his hometown, and that’s it. Not even a hero in places other than North Ossetia. In fact, he’s no match to any soldier who fought (and died) for their country.

        OT: I saw your blog and your last post dates back way 2009. I’d love to see your latest blog posts, though (beyond 2009). 😀
