In Dresden, the police have been forcing some soccer fans to strip completely naked (G) and let themselves be inspected before they enter the stadium. The innocent-looking ones, of course. Specifically "younger or older persons, especially females, who because of their external appearance would not ordinarily be judged to be potentially violent fans."
A 16-year old girl who was forced to strip has now sued before the local Administrative Court.
Not only was the process humiliating, the "paving stones were horribly cold in March." The police have explained themselves thus:
The police explained the action on the basis that such "unsuspicious-looking fans" had transported weapons, smoke powder, and flares — hidden in bras and panties — into the stadium. Further, they maintained, there was one case in which a female fan had smuggled pyrotechnical products into the stadium hidden in her intimite areas.
I hardly know where to begin here. First, I’d like to stress the importance of a convincing answer when the German police officer asks you whether or whether "your intimate areas have been under your control at all times since you came to the stadium." Then, let’s speculate about headlines: "Four Seriously Injured As Dresden Fireworks-Smuggler Passes Gas."
But that’s only the beginning. Help, commenters — GJ needs you now more than ever!
