loads of photos which truly speak for themselves:
Most people don't know that swiss «Water Cannons»
at a fingertip can be laced with «teargas» CN.
In addition to filling up loaded arrestant-busses with «teargas»
before closing the doors, this is regularly used by officers to
illegally torture demonstrators with drastic results.
Both are facts being deliberatly hidden or even plainly censored
by swiss media for the last 30 years.
Up to now, PigBrother documents the following cases:
lighter Case, 1 Person, May 1st 2000: Person in hospital for one
week. Both hospital and authorities denied knowing anything under
false excuse of data protection, although the official expert
said this not being true. Later the hospital ruled a «total
news blackout». All media refused to bring the story. >>>
more grave Case, 2 Persons, Feb 1st 2002: Persons in hospital
/ unable to sit (let alone work) for 5 weeks. Wounds showing clearly
the injured being deliberatly showered with CN, which is illegal
by police law and clearly brands the injuries as torture. Usual
news blackout. Despite repeatedly being contacted by the injured,
all media refused to bring the story. After continuos reporting
by PigBrother (incl. an article/interview in an alternative newspaper)
and the injured sueing the police, various media brought small
coverage once (of course without reference). Up to now no result
in legal action against police. Photos from day 1 to 9. >>>
For more than 20 years, Zurich plain clothes
officers are known to use illegal weapons like e.g. steelrods.
For the same time, media refused to report this fact. Until
after May 1st 2000, when an officer with a rod was accidentally
depicted nationwide in various newspapers and on TV without
anybody except PigBrother wanting to acknowledge the obvious
an intervention by PigBrother at the police plus a pressrelease,
a spokesman finally admitted the depicted rod being
«no regular policeweapon». Next the chief
of the concerned Kriminalpolizei was allowed in an interview to
spread the infamous lie, the rod being «not illegal»
- while on any policestation there are posters showing exactly
this rod as being «forbidden». For various months,
the concerned newspaper refused to correct this obvious misinformation.
While one of the victims of the criminal rod-cop, who had
verbally protested against some plainclothes officers stopping
a demonstrator by hitting him with a car (a common practice
also refused to name by all media until a noble citizen one year
later got crushed off one leg, then reporting it as «one
single accident»), got sentenced quickly for «resistance
and violence against officers», the criminal rod-cop
only got a «internal disciplinary proceeding»,
the police keeping the result «secret». After
PigBrother reporting this to State's Persecutors and District
Attorneys, they refused 2 times to start any proceedings,
while proclaiming the second refusal to be «final»
and «unable to appeal against by legal means»,
on the truly remarkable and scandalous grounds of «police
officers standing above the law» (!!!!!), although the
officer bought and owned his illegal rod as a private citizen.
Despite various pressreleases by PigBrother, of course all
media refused to report this absolutely intolerable explanation.
