Nigerian-Man being forced out of train in Germany

The Inspectors of the S-Bahn Munich in Germany hauled a 48-year-old Nigerian from the train by force. The two inspectors of the Deutsche Bahn German train system were caught on camera viciously pulling the Nigerian man out of a train after he refused to provide his identity and pay a fine for not having a ticket

This is what happens if you are caught without a ticket on the S-Bahn. Being black didn't help ether, on the contrary! #racism #everydayracism

 The man is seen strongly holding unto a metal handrail, as the men in uniform fiercely battle to pull him out of the suburban S-Bahn train, headed to Munich city center from the airport.

Natalia Miletic who captured the event and posted it on Facebook, can be heard telling the inspectors:

“It’s absolutely not OK what you’re doing, the guy didn’t do anything to you.” You should be ashamed of yourself, this is racism what you’re doing,”. “Why are you doing this? He paid.”

The lady continues filming the incident until someone apparently tries to stop her.

The man, said to be a 48-year-old Nigerian, was allegedly pulled out from the train at Leuchtenbergring station. He appeared to have no valid ticket when inspectors approached him during the check. They asked him to show an identity card and pay a €60 fine ($68), according to the witness who filmed the incident and later described it to HuffingtonPost.de.

The man only had €9 in cash, which he wanted to use for food. The inspectors took the €9, saying he still owed the rest.

Deutsche Bahn, the company operating trains in Germany, said it was “unusual to receive only partial payments,”commenting on the incident later.

The company also stated that the man was acting aggressively and refused to leave the carriage, prompting the inspectors to apply physical force. The witness, however, described the man as having remained calm.

The incident was reported to the police due to the conflicting accounts. Although it was not clear whether the man’s skin color played any role, the Deutsche Bahn admitted there had been racist incidents in the past.

The video uploaded by the witness on her Facebook page has so far garnered more than 750,000 views.

“This is what happens if you are caught without a ticket on the S-Bahn. Being black didn’t help either, on the contrary!” reads the caption to Natalija Miletic’s post. With nearly 4,000 comments under it, the post sparked outrage, with some writing it had nothing to do with racism and others suggesting the man should have complied with the inspectors, since he did not pay.
