The German Federal government is not supporting the local police force in the protection of its citizens. The migrant population is the most important group to Chancellor Merkel and her own countrymen are second class citizens.
The officer said Germany needed to clamp down and introduce tighter controls on migrants, as well as deploy more police officers. He said at present at the moment police officers lack the support of politicians, a sore point for the national police union which has been warning for years that significant cuts in manpower was leaving the force unable to protect the nation.
The truth is that the migrants crisis is a political tool of Merkel and the leftist home secretary of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the police are political pawns to be used as scapegoats because the situation has become bad for public relations and even worse for the women around Cologne.
This lack of support for police, and then officers being used as scapegoats when situations turned bad is a major theme in German politics at the moment. Breitbart London reported last week on the Cologne chief of police being fired by the leftist home secretary of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia after the migrant rape crisis in the city on new year’s eve.
The interior minister said at a press conference called to announce the chief’s early retirement that his departure was necessary to restore public faith in police, yet he failed to mention that on new year’s eve he had personally turned down a request from police for reinforcements to patrol the city, leaving just 143 officers on duty that night. Speakers at a PEGIDA march in the city this weekend called on the interior minister to resign for his part in the scandal.
The politicians are out of touch with the lives they campaign to protect. Much can be learned from the Germany's migrant crisis so that America will not repeat their mistakes; one can only hope.
