    Do you have any idea about what is really happening in Turkey?


    In my previous report, http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-983085, I tried to convey some information about the latest situation during the protests (Gezi protests) all around Turkey and our president’s physiological mood.


    Now he is dottier than ever!


    What happened so far? Has there been any change in a good way?


    Let’s see…


    Today, our latest frightening news has arrived… Berkin Elvan has lost the battle of life at age 16. He had gone to the market just to buy bread but instead he had shot through from his head with a pepper gas cartridge by police and dead after 268 days of suffer. Our little prince lost the battle against the Kingdom’s bad dragon…


    Do you know how many people died during protests?
    Does it matter if it is 1 or 10? Will it be a consolation?


    Berkin Elvan was 16 years old…
    Ethem Sarısülük (27)
    Abdullah Cömert (22)
    Ali İsmail Korkmaz (19)
    Ahmet Atakan (23)
    Mehmet Ayvalıtaş (20)
    Medeni Yıldırım (18)


    While I am writing this report, protests started in Ankara (ODTÜ) against the government and police interfere students with pepper gas and pressurized water. Ring a bell?


    Do you know who Bilal Erdoğan is?


    If you have time search him through Internet but make sure to go deeper and check his army records which you won’t find because he has not gone, check his police records which you won’t find although there are ‘’rumors’’ about that he killed someone in 1998, check his wealth which you also won’t find because he does not have anything except 6 or more ships and some other millions of dollars!


    Have you listened the latest voice records about allegations of corruption?


    I am sure you have heard some of them and could not believe he is still sitting on his chair. Just type “Corruption in Turkey” and you will understand what I mean.


    Have you heard the Internet prohibition law?


    They are bragging about how democrat they are and we are role model for other countries, however, how can you be a leader country when you try to decide which site I can visit or not? Is this what is happening in democratic countries? There are only a few countries in the whole world where it is forbidden to use internet access or it is limited, which are Saudi Arabia, Iran, Cuba, Syria, China, Tunisia, Vietnam (these are the ones that I know, maybe there are 2 or 3 more). They are trying to cut every single communication level like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube one by one, so that their scandals will not spread that fast and maybe even does not spread at all!


    What really frightening is, all of the above just happened in one month period…But is that all? …
