Meanwhile, here is some police action in Spain
It will be a formal procedure, the results of which will not be made public
The local police have opened an inner investigation in order to throw light on the circumstances of what happened yesterday in the quarter of Lavapiés when one of the agents who carried out the detention of an illegal vendor shot twice in the air in order to disperse a group of africans who were insulting them after they arrested one of their mates.
According to the informations given by a spokesperson of the local police, this kind of investigations are opened whenever an agent opens fire with his service gun. It is an internal proceeding carried out by the police force of the town hall, the results of which are not made public.
The incident was being heavily commented even today in the neighborhood as well as on internet, where the news and the video about the two policemen arresting the suspect and the clash between them and the immigrants published yesterday by ABC reached a wide audience
In the police office
Regarding the detainee, a man from Senegal, the local police informed that he had already been handed over to the national police, which is the responsible for the keeping in custody of the detainees, and if determined, to bring them to court. According to the version of the police, the man was caught by surprise by plain-clothes officers when he was illegally selling goods near the Rastro (street market). When the agents asked him for his papers, he tried to flee.
According to judicial sources, the majority of this kind of detentions end with the detainee being released from the police station itself. The illegal vendors are usually not prosecuted, but a report is issued by which later they are called to court. The issue would be more problematic for the detainee if he has no valid papers. In this case, he could be imprisoned in a migrants internment center.
