“We are looking for witnesses and people who have camera images of the incident or possible (fleeing) suspects. Share these images not on social media,” it sounds on the Twitter account of the Amsterdam police.
On the many videos circulating on WhatsApp, Twitter and Instagram, De Vries is clearly recognizable with a bloody face. He is lying on his back in the street. Bystanders help him and call whether 112 has already been called.
The heaviness of the images evokes horror in many people. Please do not share photos and videos. So don’t drop them in my DM either. It’s bad enough. And terrible for his family,” tweets America expert Kirsten Verdel.
According to the well-known nurse Don Roelofson, people who share the videos of De Vries are ‘almost as low as the perpetrator himself’. Arnhemmer Arold Dingemans lashes out hard at the person who filmed De Vries up close. “What an incredible jerk you are. I hope Peter’s family will never see these images.”
