Racial profiling by the German police at its extend…..
The first time to got control by police in Görlitzer park.
I was passing by the park, suddenly found 3 police vans, with bunch of police.
Then I was stopped and asked to put my bicycle beside, put of my jacket and raise my hands up.
I asked why? The police man told me we are on a general control.
I responded general control, but why not stopping other people’s passing by different from blacks, while only stopping blacks for control?
#police: we doing it because black people are the ones selling drugs, and committing crimes here.
#I: Responded but I’m not dealing with drug, neither commiting crimes, I have been living here for 3 years now, coming here and chilling like the way others chill different race from me, but always when there are police, you always approach the blacks without controlling others.
But I’m not surprised, I’m expecting this always, because I’m black and I’m criminalized.
#Police: Nooo that’s not true, Don’t say that
#I: Of course that’s true and am gonna say that again.
I was checked every where, inside my wallet, inside my bag every single hole and from my jacket and my body.
Then my phone was collected, they found 2 phones with me,.
#Police: why you have 2 phones?
#I: that’s not your concerned, I deal with my phone’s.
The small phone with Lyca communication and the smart phone for internet and calls, so you shouldn’t ask me of why am having 2 phone’s.
#Police: Unlock your phone?
#I : for what reason?
#Police: if it’s a stolen phone or not
#I: Okay so am I not able to buy this phone by my self?
#Police: No we’re going to control and if not stolen, we give you back.
#Police: Do you know anyone here or you know what they are doing here?
#I: every one here is my brother, because they are Africans, and thesame time blacks being criminalize including myself as a black.
#Police: Police but do you know what are they doing here?
#I : I don’t care what they doing, but I know that they hangout to chill as thesame as how the other race’s chilled.
But always police control and criminalization against them, because of our race and background.
At the end they gave me my ausweis and the telephone.
#Police: have your phone and ausweis.
#I: Is it a stolen phone or not?
#Police: No every thing is fine, you can go now or you stay if you want to.
#I: No I’m going to stay here as normal as the others staying around.
#Police: Okay then have a nice day
#I: you too and have a happy black control day, because that’s always your mission here, but as I said it’s never a surprised, because that’s how we the blacks recognised ourselves like that…….racial profiling by police.
