More than 1,000 administrations of emetics also mean more than 1,000 police operations. As early as 1995, the Anti-Racism Office Bremen documented a large number of cases, spoke with people affected and showed how brutal these operations were. In 2013, chief of police Lutz Müller was the first person in institutional responsibility who criticized the administration of emetics: "No one is supposed to die or be inflicted with long-lasting damage in police custody, neither in cases in which violence is legally legitimated."
