There are many claims suggesting that Ahmed Merhabet, the policeman allegedly shot and killed by the Charlie Hebdo gunmen, was not actually killed in the way media outlets portrayed.
Several supporting arguments brought forth by this article are:
- The shot fired from an AK47 visibly did not hit his head
- There was no blood
- There was no recoil from the gun
- There was no head movement from the impact
- The guy filming it didn't even flinch
Later on, the gunmen were caught because one of them left his passport in the getaway car. Regardless of the whole event sounding questionable, can anyone explain the claims brought forth by the article and the footage of the policeman being shot?
