MORE POLICE VIOLENCE.
Although the official autopsy revealed the man did not die as a result of any cranial or head injuries, and therefore did not die as a direct result of the police beating, the police's "overzealous' conduct, as it has been described by civil rights groups, remains under scrutiny.
Berne authorities have also come under fire for not acting on their previous knowledge of the late victim's psychological condition. The city's social divisions had been aware of the victim's psychological instability well before the chain of events leading to his death occurred. The origin of the domestic dispute was apparently a disagreement between Cemal G. and his oldest child, who insisted on going to her school's annual festival despite her father's orders not to.
