Hrant Dink shot dead, he offended Turkishness

Hrant Dink, director of the bilingual weekly Agos , was shot dead. He stated "I'm Turkish and Armenian but not Turk". This lead him to death. He denounced the Armenian genocide and was condemned for "offenses to Turkishness".

This is not acceptable.

"A bullet was fired - Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan commented - at freedom of thought and democratic life"

What the hell is Turkishness, by the way?
