Germany: Berlin police savagely beat unarmed black man *PARTNER CONTENT*

Germany, Berlin
September 28, 2018 at 11:32 GMT -00:00 · Published

Berlin police have been filmed savagely beating a black man because of a "suspected bicycle theft" in Kreuzberg on Thursday.

Footage shows police violently pinning the unarmed man to the ground and proceeding to beat him up, with one officer taking out his gun. Locals and passers-by were pepper-sprayed when they tried to stop the violence by shouting and throwing projectiles towards the police. Police have reportedly called the public's reaction "violent resistance."

Public statements from the police so far mention nothing about their officer’s violence against this man, or the status of his health.

Berlin police claimed in a press statement on Friday, that they had only collected the man's personal details and were about to continue their patrol when the man returned to their vehicle, allegedly seeking "confrontation." Police claimed they were then pelted with stones and bottles.

In addition to the victim of police violence, three other men were also provisionally arrested.
