Re: Charming Swiss Police Behaviour...Again.

Zurich and Luzern police are well known for these tactics.
Switzerland is a special form of democracy where the confederate tactics of the past play an important role today.

Like is or not, as a foreigner you are a 2nd class citizen here and the judge will most likely rule against you.

It's not nice is it. But it doesn't just happen here it happens in all European countries. it's easy for the police to do it this way. I'm sure the same thing occurs to Europeans in countries such as Iran, but there they are looking for people to hang!!
Exactly.

My brother (white skin) is married to a Nigerian girl (black skin). He often travels there and tell me he is regularly picked up by customs, his luggage checked*

*unless he "tip them off" immediately after being called...

The "officials" identify someone as foreigner and abuse it's happening everywhere.

I haven't read any of them, but knowing LiB, they're probably all in support of his pet theory that Switzerland is one of the most dangerous and criminal countries on Earth, but that it's all being swept under the carpet to maintain the squeaky clean image.
