German police academy fires lecturer over comments about racist cops

May 25, 2023

Berlin [Germany], May 25: A lecturer at a German police academy was fired this week after she spoke publicly about her personal fears of racism among police officers. The decision to dismiss Bahar Aslan from her position at the police academy in the western city of Gelsenkirchen prompted outrage from leaders in the Turkish-German community. Aslan was expelled from her position as a lecturer on Monday after tweeting that she and other friends worry about racist mistreatment by police. "My heart starts racing when I or my friends get caught in a police check because all the brown filth inside the security authorities scares us," she tweeted. "This is not just my reality, but that of many people in this country."
The phrase "brown filth" is a reference to far-right extremist groups. Revelations in recent years that members of such groups held positions in the German police and security services have caused repeated scandals in the country. (DPA)
