German cop jailed for racist assault

      A 24 year-old policeman in the East German city of Leipzig was
sentenced on Monday, August 22, to serve 3 years and 9 months in prison
after he was convicted of assualt and robbery. The officer, Ronny K., had
severely beaten several Vietnamese aslyum-seekers who had been arrested
for selling untaxed cigarettes. The officers then took the confiscated
cigarettes and sold them himself. Another three cops were given suspended
sentences. The jailing of officer Ronny K. is the first time that a
German cop has been jailed for assaulting Vietnamese immigrants. At least
51 similar police brutality cases involving Vietnamese immigrants and
asylum-seekers are still under investigation.
