Almost everyone has heard about the rash of sexual assaults on German women and the string of violent terror attacks using knives and vehicles since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country’s borders more than two years ago.
What is less well known is the toll that Merkel’s globalist immigration policy – taken straight out of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – has taken on German police officers.
Attacks against police have skyrocketed since the country welcomed more than 1 million migrants in 2015. Another 500,000 or so Third-Worlders rushed into the country in 2016 and 2017.
The Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA) reported 36,755 attacks against German police in 2016 — or an average of 100 per day, and the preliminary numbers for 2017 are expected to break all records.
All of these attacks have been dutifully covered up or downplayed by the German media.
Gatestone Institute revealed that, according to the BKA, the epicenter of the problem in 2016 was North Rhine-Westphalia, the state with the largest migrant population, which recorded 8,929 incidents of violence against cops.
That was followed by these cities [number of incidents in parentheses]:
- Bavaria (4,930)
- Baden-Württemberg (4,355)
- Berlin (3,154)
- Lower Saxony (3,030)
- Hesse (1,870)
- Saxony (1,573)
- Rhineland-Palatinate (1,537)
- Hamburg (1,339)
- Thüringen (1,228)
- Schleswig-Holstein (1,237)
- Brandenburg (1,009)
- Saxony-Anhalt (899)
- Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (658)
- Saarland (521)
- Bremen (486)
In Berlin alone, attacks against police this year have spiked 70 percent in Görlitzer Park, 35 percent at the Warsaw Bridge and 15 percent at Kottbusser Tor, according to the Berliner Morgenpost.
Official statistics do not reveal the source of the violence, but do show a spike in attacks against police since 2015, when Merkel allowed into the country more than a million migrants, the vast majority of whom were male Muslims between the ages of 17 and 45 from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
“Anecdotal evidence corroborates claims by police that migrants are behind many of the attacks,” Gatestone reports.
In some areas, such as Gelsenkirchen, police efforts at community outreach, also called “community-oriented policing” have been dismal failures.
Two police officers in Gelsenkirchen recently stopped a driver who ran a red light. The driver stepped out of the car and fled. When police caught up with him, they were mobbed by more than 50 members of an Arab clan. A 15-year-old attacked a policeman from behind and strangled him to the point of unconsciousness.
In another incident, police were surrounded and physically assaulted by more than 60 members of an Arab clan.
Senior members of the Gelsenkirchen police department held a secret meeting with representatives of three Arab clans in order to “cultivate social peace between Germans and Lebanese.” A leaked police report revealed that the clans told Police Chief Ralf Feldmann that “the police cannot win a war with the Lebanese because we outnumber them.”
The following are some of the other incidents revealed by Gatestone:
- In Duisburg, a police officer asked a man to move his car, which was illegally parked. The man refused and began shouting at the officer. Within minutes, more than 250 people appeared at the scene and began harassing the police officer, who called for backup. More than 50 policemen and 18 police vehicles were required to resolve what had begun as a routine traffic procedure.
- In Düsseldorf, 15 police officers were injured when they tried to break up an illegal rally organized by Kurds celebrating the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party or PKK. Police used pepper spray to restore order.
- In Mülheim, around 80 members of two rival clans got into a mass brawl following a dispute between two teenagers. When police arrived, they were attacked with bottles and stones. More than 100 police, backed up by helicopters, were deployed to restore order. Five people were taken into custody but then released.
- In Dortmund, more than 40 migrants engaged in a fight at a refugee shelter. When police arrived, they were “massively attacked” by the mob. Police used dogs to restore order.
- In Bremen, a 25-year-old man was stabbed by a group of migrants in the Huchting district. When police arrived to investigate, they were immediately surrounded by a mob of between 30 and 40 men. Police used teargas and dogs to restore order.
- In Fellbach, 60 migrant teenagers attacked police at the 70th annual Harvest Festival. Police described the youths as “exclusively German citizens with a migration background and other migrants.” The youths were said to be engaged in “turf wars.”
- In Leipzig, an Iraqi man was stabbed and seriously injured during a mass brawl in front of a Kebab restaurant. When police intervened, the mob attacked them with bottles and stones.
- In Naumburg, police confiscated the driver’s license of Ahmed A., a 21-year-old member of a Syrian clan, during a traffic stop. Almost immediately, police were surrounded by a mob of other clan members. The police retreated. The mob then marched to the police station, which they proceeded to sack.
- In Würzburg, a 17-year-old Afghan asylum seeker brandishing an ax and shouting “Allahu Akbar” seriously injured five people on a train. The assailant was shot dead by police after he charged at them with the ax. Green Party MP Renate Künast criticized the police for using lethal force.
- Some police believe that Germany’s politically correct judicial system encourages
violence against them. In Hanover, for example, a court handed suspended sentences to six members of a Kurdish clan who seriously wounded two dozen police officers during a violent rampage in Hameln. The court’s ruling was greeted with anger and derision by police.
Freddi Lohse, vice chairman of the DPolG German Police Union in Hamburg, said many migrant offenders view the leniency of the German justice system as a green light to continue delinquent behavior: “They are used to tougher consequences in their home countries. They have no respect for us.”
