Seven years ago, Police Commander Nisso Shaham was caught on video during the disengagement instructing a border guard unit who were besieging anti-evacuation marchers at
the Kfar Maimon moshav. It was shown on Channel Two news and caused his removal from duties during the Disengagement.
His most memorable utterance was in authorizing police violence:
"No problem whatsoever – batons,
lower body parts if necessary. (Acknowledgement: "OK.")"
