Cop on the right mistakes ‘im for an anarchist who showed up to demonstrate against the right-wingers who were also demonstratin’. Peppersprays him.
The question is: What’d the chief do wrong and does he consider whether or not this kind of thing happens regular-like?
The Story* (in German)
And here, the police report°, which is quite a hoot, I hafta tell ya. I’ve translated the pertinent paragraph below and, trust me, I was more than fair in doing so; but there’s just no way to make the penultimate sentence sound any less ridiculous:
At about 1900 hours on Lipschitz-Allee several individuals evidently associated with the leftist scene pursued an out-of-uniform police officer and tried to attack him physically. In response, the official pulled his truncheon and struck an attacker on the thigh. A uniformed officer who had observed the assault hurried to the location. As a consequence of the application of the officially issued pepper spray, the plain clothes official suffered light ocular irritations and received outpatient treatment. The attackers fled.
Can you say a picture is worth a thousands words that you won’t get anywhere else?
