Between 80 and 100 African migrants clash with police in Hamburg, shouting “Fuck off, piss off, this is not America”, following an incident in which an aggressive 18 year old migrant from Somalia was arrested and barred from a betting office for threatening to slash the employees throats.
Two weeks prior, a 33 year old migrant from Ghana attacked a police officer with a knife. Since attempting to control the situation with pepper spray failed, the 46 year old police officer shot the 33 year old in the leg out of self-defence. After the man had been shot in the leg once, he was taken to hospital for an emergency operation.
On the evening and at the scene of the crime, 20 to 30 African migrants gathered to demonstrate against the police’s actions, accusing the police officers of racism.
Martin Dolzer, a Left party politician, claimed that the incident was a “racially motivated execution attempt”.
