They’re no good unless they have a hole in the middle.
An unknown Greek group has threatened to indiscriminately kill police officers and expand its target list to include prominent members of society.
The Sect of Revolutionaries issued the warning on a CD left on the grave of a teenager who was shot by police in December, triggering a month of riots.
Police said the declaration, which was published in a Greek newspaper on Thursday, appeared to be genuine.
The group also said it had attacked a police station in Athens on Tuesday.
Shots were fired at the station in the suburb of Korydallos, causing some damage but no injuries. A hand grenade was also thrown, but it failed to explode.
Last month, a policeman was shot and seriously wounded in central Athens. The attack was claimed by another better-known group, Revolutionary Struggle.
The proclamation by the Sect of Revolutionaries was published on Thursday morning in the newspaper, Ta Nea, just as a gas bomb exploded outside the political office of the public order ministry.
In it, the group said the armed attack on the police station in Korydallos had been in retaliation for the alleged murder by police of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos.
It claimed its members had been “unlucky” not to kill a police officer during the pre-dawn assault, which many had blamed on Revolutionary Struggle.
“Our aim was to execute them,” the statement said. “Next time they will not have luck on their side.”
From now on, the group warned, the life of a police officer would be worth as much as a bullet.
“The cops are like doughnuts – they’re no good unless they have a hole in the middle,” it said. “Start handing in your resignations, otherwise we will start measuring graves.”
