A video that has recently been distributed on social networks shows a policeman violently attacking a young Moroccan, who is lying on the floor of a bar in Lleida, Catalonia. With no way of knowing the context of the scene, viewers on the Internet were divided about what it meant. Some condemned the policeman as racist, while others called for caution since it was unclear what the Moroccan had done that provoked such a reaction.
The latter were more likely correct, as the Canarias en Red newspaper reported that the Moroccan had said to the policeman, “I know you, I know your wife and your children, and I will cut their throats!” just before the incident. The “victim” also allegedly assaulted two police officers, including the one who was seen beating him. He is currently under investigation.
