Police officer forces brutality witness to delete movie
A man from Deventer has filed a complaint against a police officer who forced him to delete video footage of a violent arrest, according to De Stentor. The policeman had just arrested another man for being drunk and disorderly. When his prisoner tried to escape though, the policeman started beating and kicking him, according to the witness.
The local chief of police, Lute Nieuwerth, tried to add oil to the flames when talking to De Stentor by coming up with some of the regular fallacies; blame the victim, sometimes excessive force is not excessive, yada, yada, yada.
The 19-year-old victim of the beating has not filed a complaint.
