Shock scene at Hamburg Derby

Hamburg – The football derby between FC St. Pauli and HSV – a high-risk game!

The police have been on site with numerous forces since midday, securing the situation around the Millerntor Stadium in St. Pauli so that the two fan camps do not collide. The security precautions in the Hanseatic city have been strengthened. The police said in advance: “We are prepared for anything!”

But shortly before the start of the second division game, violent riots broke out between violent hooligans and the police. There was a massive police operation on the Heiligengeistfeld in the immediate vicinity of the Millerntor Stadium, several people were injured.

Apparently St. Pauli fans triggered the operation. Police spokesman Sören Zimbal: “When the fan march reached the Glacischaussee, around 150-200 St. Pauli fans tried to get to the HSV fans from the forecourt via the Heiligengeistfeld. Police forces stopped it. Parts of the group were taken into custody.”

A video on Twitter shows a shock scene. You can see a federal police officer from the Evidence Preservation and Arrest Unit (BFE) punching a man who is already fixed on the ground three times in the kidneys with his glove, and later hitting his head twice with his elbow.

Police spokesman Zimbal said: “A video circulating on the internet shows one such detention, in which a police officer uses coercion in the form of physical violence. Why direct coercion had to be used in this case is not clear at the moment. However, this is usually the case when a person objects to police measures.”

And further: “It is necessary to check whether proportionality has been observed. We check if everything went right. We also check the written deployment reports of the officers involved.”

FC St. Pauli criticized the proportionality of the operation, while the police said it was still unclear why coercion had to be used in this case.

Almost 30,000 visitors were expected at the Millerntor. Host St. Pauli also wanted to use more folders than usual, as a club spokesman confirmed. The buffer zones between the home and guest areas have been enlarged, and alcohol is also prohibited in the stadium, it said.

HSV fans without a ticket for the game want to spend the evening in the pubs around Hans-Albers-Platz in St. Pauli, said the fan group “Nordtribüne Hamburg”, which also called for the fan march.
