A woman from China got confused by the train ticket system in Germany, because some machines print stamped tickets, while other machines print tickets which you have to stamp inside the train.

When she showed the unstamped ticket to the inspector he intimidated her, telling her she needs to pay 60 Euro fine and confiscated her passport. He threatened her that they will have to go to the "po-li-ce" and made her cry.

A journalist watched the scene and paid the 60 Euro for her. The video he made was watched over 100k times. Now the train company wants to personally apologize to the chinese student.

Fire him, but make him pay 60 Euros to the student first.

And yes, fire him

It always happens every where. In France, some women were threatened with rape after their passports were taken away but released upon business done. So, what could be done if you were victimized and did not know the proper access for the law and assistance?

Even I get confused about this strange system - and I do speak German. On my first trip to Munich I also did not stamp my ticket and got into a big argument with the train's ticket inspector and eventually had to pay the fine of 60 Euros. However, I went to one of their offices and filed a complaint against this inspector and they returned my 60 Euros. This system is not very good for tourists or someone who does not understand the German language.
