Berlin policeman suspended for far-right comments

A Berlin police supervisor has been suspended and is under investigation for making offensive, extremist comments to colleagues, the department said Wednesday. On the sidelines of a training conference in May, the 32-year-old officer made "right-extremist remarks that violate the constitution," Berlin police said in a statement. Disciplinary action is being considered and the officer has been suspended from his job in the meantime. It is the second such incident to come to light from the Berlin department in as many days.
