50.000 Germans sign petition to demand study about racial profiling at the police

A petition that "calls for a study on "Racial Profiling" to be carried out by federal and state police authorities" has reached the quorum of 50.000 needed signatures on the official petition platform of the German state. The threshold has been met five days before the official deadline on the 20.08.2020. Each public petition has four weeks from the moment it is published online to gather the required amount of signatures.

The Petitions Committee will now, as the quorum has been met, invite the petitioner to a public hearing about the petition to further present their concern directly to the members of the Committee.

Federal Minister of the Interior, Building and Community Horst Seehofer has previously blocked a study about racial profiling and racism inside the German police.
