German Police Take Turns Beating Defenseless Disco-GoerInformationLiberation
Jul. 12, 2013
Unfortunately, the report on this incident is in German from Bild.de.
From what I could gather, the man is a 28 year old father, who made a complaint to the club's doorman after a cigarette machine took his friend's money, at that point the cops suddenly began to beat him ruthlessly without explanation, he had to be taken to the hospital and was in the ER being treated for 6 hours. The cops appear to have claimed they were responding to a reported attack on a woman, but the club says they were not aware any such report was filed. Fortunately, the beating was caught on the club's CCTV cameras and Germans are apparently outraged. A public prosecutor is investigating the incident and the police apparently even filed a complaint against their own officers saying police brutality will not be tolerated.
