Leipzig investigators investigate suspected excessive police violence during the New Year's Eve in Connewitz. The news portal “Buzzfeed News” had previously reported on previously unknown videos of the night. A spokesman for the prosecutor said that it was investigating whether there were any indications that the crime was suspected at first. So far, there have been no reports of alleged victims.
“Buzzfeed News” uses three videos, 15 eyewitnesses and three suspected victims of police violence. According to this, police officers are said to have beaten and kicked people. In addition, riot police, among other things, passed a lifeless person lying on a crossroads without helping them (see the videos here).
