(PARIS, France)— A Black man beaten up by several French police officers said he is seeking justice after the publication of videos showing officers repeatedly punching him, using a truncheon and tear gas against him for no apparent reason. French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin ordered the officers involved in the case suspended. The incident came as President Emmanuel Macron’s government is pushing a new bill that restricts the ability to film police, which has prompted protests from civil liberties groups and journalists concerned that it would allow police brutality to go undiscovered and unpunished. Videos first published on Thursday by French news website Loopsider show the violent arrest of a music producer identified only by his first name, Michel, in the 17th arrondissement or district of the French capital on Saturday. The video images obtained by the Associated Press, both from a security camera inside the studio and filmed by neighbors outside, show three officers following Michel inside his music studio, where they can be seen repeatedly punching him and beating him with a truncheon.
