The defense of the policemen
But the local police officers of Milan are not there and respond to the accusations of those who point the finger at them on the basis of a video. I cast, in fact, in the report presented they reconstructed the facts exactly.
According to what emerged, a superintendent, with an assistant and two agents, would have acted after the report. In the report sent to Command 2 in the prosecutor’s office it is written that the trans, who has specific precedents dating back to 2010, once stopped and allowed to board the local car began to attack the officers.
First he would have started to bite his hand until it bled and then “spit and threaten to have AIDS”. She later attempted to harm herself with metal clips. At via Castelbarco she allegedly feigned illness and after kicking the officers she attempted to escape.
The report then goes into detail in the offending part of the detention. “Violent leg kicks“, “agent fell disastrously to the ground causing her injuries” reads the report, with the agents who wrote that the trans was immobilized by the superintendent then helped by the agents who “seeing colleagues in difficulty used the spacer stick at the fugitive’s address“.
The sentence of the trans
In the report, then, also emerges a picture of verbal violence that the trans woman addressed to the agents. According to what is written, in fact, after the arrest and before the attack, the woman would have threatened the castirons.
“You two don’t make it to tonight alive, I’m crazy” the words addressed by the trans to the agents in the car, while biting her hands and spitting blood in the direction of the agents.
