Justice pour Théo

Four police officers are under investigation over the case of a 22-year-old man identified only by his first name, Theo who was arrested on February 2, 2017 in the district of Aulnay-Sous-Bois (Paris) by officers checking ID documents. During his arrest, part of which was captured on video, the man alleged that one of the officers sodomized him with a police baton.
Theo's case has prompted a week of demonstrations in the impoverished district.
