Feeling Safe Already

“I know a lot of cyclists run red lights in Frankfurt, but I didn’t.”

“Yes, but let me tell you something. I’ve been a police officer for 20 years, I know my flock.”

Verena must have talking to Jesus!

“Yes, you have a facial scar now, but you should get used to that if you behave like you do.”

Because you’re innocent until proven guilty, unless the police officer is Jesus!

“I feel sorry for the taxi driver, it was quite the shock for him.”

Not like for you, who flew across the hood of a car and hit the road with your face. Lying on the ground in a puddle of blood? Don’t be such a wuss. The real victim is the driver. Police Officer Jesus loves the driver, but hates the cyclist!

    “I feel sorry for the taxi driver, it was quite the shock for him.”

    The FUCK.

    Sorry for the profanity, but… how can they…

  2. German police – “the best and the brightest”… umm… no, mostly just some f*cks with a power-complex. But tell you something – in Bavaria it’s even worse, although I assume that’s just a small comfort to you…

    (What about generating some last-minute surprise witness, just like the taxi driver did? And could you afford a lawyer? Legal assistance is of quite some value in this f*cked-up country…)

    I don’t know what to say except that this makes me extremely angry. I feel sorry for Verena and I hope she recovers well. Injustice is rampant nowadays as has always been I think. Please do what you can for her. On other note is there a way to discredit the witness? The arguments you posted are quite convincing.. You’ll probably have to go to court with this one..but that is always expensive… hang on there both of you.

  4. Sorry for the profanity, but… how can they…

    No need to apoligize for profanity on this blog. This blog believes in appropriate swearing.

    What about generating some last-minute surprise witness, just like the taxi driver did? And could you afford a lawyer? Legal assistance is of quite some value in this f*cked-up country…

    The thing is, we’re not criminals. But we can hope that this witness is going to turn out to have some… credibility issues.

    We definitely can’t afford a lawyer.

    On other note is there a way to discredit the witness?

    We hope so. The witnesses who were actually *there* certainly won’t have seen this person, and the whole thing will fall apart the moment she tries to go into any kind of detail.

    There’s some hope the whole thing will just be thrown out without going to court, though we obviously would prefer it if the taxi driver was actually found guilty.

    Re: not being able to afford a lawyer
    If you’re broke enough, you _can_ afford a lawyer. How that works? If your income and wealth are low enough, you qualify for Prozesskostenhilfe, which means you pay 20€ (or thereabouts), and the state pays the rest. You need to go to a Rechtspfleger at the Amtsgericht. They must advise you about this. At least, that was the state of affairs, when my boyfriend had landlord troubles oh-so-many years ago. He was totally broke and got a lawyer to represent him that way.
    Bring documentation in the form of a passport or Personalausweis and a statement of you income, if you have it, and take heart: they can’t do more than say no.

    I hope Verena recovers quickly and without complications, and that you prevail in traffic court.
