“Protection seeker” from Afghanistan smashed the face of a Hamburg police officer. Where’s the outcry?
Hamburg: “Bad incident on Friday evening at 8:55 p.m. on Talstrasse / corner of Schmuckstrasse. Police officers expelled an Afghan (22) who sought contact with prostitutes and threatened to arrest them. Suddenly the man from Verden an der Aller (Lower Saxony) freaked out and hit an officer in the face. The colleague used pepper spray — without success. The thug fled in the direction of Great Freedom. The two policemen caught up with him. Again the Kiez visitor pounded the same officer with a fist in the face. The second use of pepper spray also had no effect. Eventually the man was handcuffed. The policeman (34) had to go to hospital seriously injured. Diagnosis: several facial fractures, no longer fit for duty.”
“We see this diversity as something positive that makes our city lively, attractive and strong.”
