This paper examines the continuing reports of unlawful use of firearms by law enforcement officials in Romania. In some cases the victims were killed while in others the shootings resulted in the victims' serious injury. It is argued that the use of firearms is a long-standing problem which the Romanian authorities have failed to effectively address and that investigations into most of these incidents were not impartial and thorough.
