Mark Kitau and Jackline Nadler sound exhausted and sad. “We’re scared,” they say. Actually, they just wanted to celebrate their son’s birthday.

The police also confirm this.
Police enforce custody
The situation in the apartment quickly comes to a head. According to the Chemnitz police, the “heavily drunk” Nadler does not show understanding and announces to continue celebrating. “Since a further disturbance of public order was to be expected through renewed noise, the woman was threatened with her detention (interception custody),” said the Chemnitz police. “Since there were no signs of calming down either, the detention had to be enforced with immediate force.” Nadler and Kitau describe the processes completely differently. Nadler admits that she drank alcohol. However, she was not completely drunk.
The breath alcohol test carried out by the police showed that both sides agreed that they were 1.64 per mille.

Instead, Nadler and Kitau tell of the fact that the officers locked their son there, who was about to leave the bathroom. The police say they only touched Nadler. All other people would have kept quiet. “
The officers also pushed her daughter out of the way.
The officials deny having touched Kitau.
Jackline Nadler has to completely undress at the station
According to the Chemnitz police, the woman is being searched for self-protection by two officers. But Nadler says that male officials were also present during her search. “I asked her why not only women do this,” says Nadler. “I had to strip completely naked and there were men there.”
After a while, Nadler complains of severe wrist pain in the cell. According to consistent statements, she will be taken to the emergency room by the police and treated there by doctors. “I told the police officers that I would complain, they injured me,” said Nadler.
But they laughed at me and said I didn’t stand a chance against the police anyway.
She can go home from the hospital. “I had no shoes and no jacket and it was minus eight degrees,” recalls Nadler. She pleaded with the police to drive her home. “But they said ‘You’re Kenyan. You can all run,'” said Nadler. It was only after a long back and forth that the officers brought her home. The Chemnitz police report nothing of these statements. The se were also not known upon request.
The officers drove Nadler home.

However, she did not have an MRI appointment to find out exactly what was wrong with her until the end of March. Kitau’s foot had swollen a lot during the night. who will be treated surgically at the beginning of February. Kitau believes the break is due to the kicks and shoving of the police officers. Even when asked, the Chemnitz police cannot explain the injury. The y stick to the statement that they have not touched Kitau.
Nadler and Kitau decide to report the incidents. “We called, but we were told to call the criminal police,” said Nadler. “And they told us we had to call the Chemnitz police.” According to Nadler, nobody wants to be responsible as soon as they say they want to file a complaint against the police.
