Good thing Germany has some of the strictist gun control laws in the world. Otherwise the death toll would have been a lot higher.
Several dead after shooting at Jehovah’s Witness hall in Hamburg, Germany, apparently including shooter, police say – A shooting at a Jehovah’s Witnesses hall in the German city of Hamburg left several people dead, apparently including the shooter, police said Friday. An unspecified number of other people were wounded, some of them seriously, police said.
That means deportations. German deportations. Deportations that don’t work, in other words. Migrants deported for criminal offences just turn around and come right back to Germany again. Why, how criminal or something. That they’re able to do so, I mean.
Thousands of deported migrants reenter Germany – Nearly 6,500 people deported from Germany sneaked back to the country over the past three years, police told Bild newspaper.
Citing federal police statistics, the newspaper said 6,495 foreigners had returned or tried to return over the past three years.
During that period, the number of returnees increased by 74%.
“These numbers reveal the enormous gaps in Interior Minister Nancy Faeser‘s security policy.”
And debates, and debates. But they never deport anybody.
And everybody who comes here knows it. That’s one of the main reasons they come. It’s a little game the Germans play; pretending they are a country that deports people who have come here to break the law.
Germany debates tougher deportation rules – A deadly knife attack on a German regional train has triggered a debate on deportation laws and their application. The suspect, a Palestinian, was living in Germany despite his criminal record.
Two weeks ago, a knife attack shook Germany when a man traveling on a regional train headed for Hamburg randomly stabbed passengers, killing two of them.
The alleged perpetrator, 33-year-old Ibrahim A.*, was known to the police, as he had multiple prior convictions for assault. He had just been released from detention, although he had nowhere to go.
Palestinian man arrested for deadly stabbing spree on German train – A knife-wielding man described as a stateless Palestinian fatally stabbed two passengers and injured seven others on a train in northern Germany before being grabbed by members of the public and arrested by police, officials say. The motive of the attack was not immediately known.
Like duh. Always has been. Otherwise they wouldn’t call it Berlin.
The street violence in Berlin on New Year’s Eve has triggered a debate on law and order ahead of regional elections in several states, including Berlin. Bavaria’s center-right Premier, Markus Söder from the Christian Social Union (CSU), lashed out at the center-left government in Berlin claiming it could “neither organize elections nor guarantee the safety of its citizens”.
That means scene of the crime. But when Germans hear the word, the first thing they normally think of is a TV show.
Tatort began as an experiment aimed at countering dubbed American crime shows’ market dominance and the success of other domestic productions. To take them on, ARD, one of Germany’s public broadcasters, tasked each of its regional affiliates with creating a series of crime shows featuring one of the cities or regions they served—incorporating its unique landscape, architecture, dialect, mentality, and economic characteristics. Each episode would be 90 minutes long—with no commercial breaks!—providing enough time to develop intricate plots set in distinctive environments. Surprisingly—even to the creators of this series—the audiences loved the new formula, and Tatort quickly earned the cult status it enjoys to this day.
Germans are obsessed with crime fiction, so much so that in German, the word Krimi—short for Kriminalroman (crime novel) or Kriminalfilm (crime film)—can also be used as a suffix to describe anything remotely suspenseful, such as a soccer match (Fußball-Krimi), chess competition (Schach-Krimi), or election (Wahl-Krimi).
German authorities are still puzzled by the mysterious deaths of three women who were killed in a knife attack.
They do know that “someone with a migrant background” and his knife were involved in the killings but because neither this someone with a migrant background nor his religion with a migrant background can be held responsible for such unpleasant realities they are now focussing in on the knife itself. “What is needed is more effectiv knife control legislation,” is most likely what German politicians are about to announce.
Germany: Würzburg holds vigil for knife attack victims – At an emotional memorial service, Würzburg mourned the deaths of three women who were killed in a knife attack. With the motive still unclear, officials urged against responding to the attack with “hate and revenge.”
