berlin - A blow, 23 Berlin police officers have cost 17 hours of their time. That can be read in the official reply given by the German Senate to a question about a remarkable incident last year. A man responded during an identity check to a question by a shipwrecked agent. He was charged a fine of 900 euros.
The suspect, Berlin Christopher S., did not agree with this. He stepped up to court and was in favor of 'insulting and breaking the honor of a police officer by flatulence.'
According to Christopher, the check would have taken forty-five minutes and found it out of place in the cold. Also, the agents would have been verbally aggressive. In September the case occurred and the court found that Christopher had no case. Within a few minutes the case was rejected.
The answer from the German Senate shows that they approve the approach of the police. By addressing the case consistently, the agents succeeded in demonstrating the injustice of his act, according to the answer.
