Berlin police chief Slowik has called the controversial state anti-discrimination law superfluous. Many police officers also took the rules as a vote of no confidence. It will also result in police work being more complex. In everyday control situations, it would lead to more discussions. In addition, more precise documentation of operations will have to be produced in the future. Meanwhile, some clan members have been testing the law and reflexively been accusing the police of discrimination, Slovik said.
The aim of the anti-discrimination law is to protect people in Berlin from official discrimination on grounds of appearance and origin. It should also make it easier for those affected by discrimination to take legal action against the said discrimination.
