A 48-year-old man believed to be Nigerian was put in a headlock and thrown to the floor at a train station in Munich after he was confronted on the train for not having a valid ticket fare. Now police are investigating following a complaint of grievous bodily harm and a video evidence showing how unnecessary brutal force was applied by two Deutsche Bahn employees.
German transport security was accused of racism for treating the man like an animal after they were filmed violently grabbing him and pinning him to the ground. According to eyewitness reports including a video recording from a lady called Natalija Miletic who was on her way to the city, people were disturbed by the vile treatment and screamed to the officers to stop.
He was then dragged to the platform, thrown to the ground with his arms behind his back as guards press his head to the floor.
The video has now been watched over 20,000 times. “It was horrible. He was treated like an animal. I don’t think they would ever treat a German or a western European in this way,” Miletic said.
