Swiss Police, a violent dark serial

While the batle against drug deal is still a topical issue in Lausanne, several dramatic events have increased tensions. In March 2018, a Nigerian alleged dealer died following a police control. In 2017, a Gambian asylum seaker, not related to drug deal, was found dead in police custody and a year before a Congolese who grew up in Switzerland was shot dead during a police intervention. Racial profiling, stigmatization, fear, did the police lose its nerve? Translation: Shyaka Kagame and Warsa Melles.
