For a government to start prosecuting law enforcement officials for attempting to protect it's people shows the utter madness that Germany has succumbed to, but we should not be so quick to dismiss this as a strictly German problem. What it shows is what could happen to the US if we begin admitting refugees en masse:
“The Green-Socialist coalition government in the region of North Rhine-Westphalia are not at all amused by whistleblowers who leaked documents that showed police tampering with witness reports from the New Years Eve sex attacks last month. The red-green coalition, as it’s known, has said they will launch an investigation in order to out the ‘moles' in their office by questioning the various media sources who broke the story Express.de reports.
The ruling parties say that the documents were disclosed unlawfully and that the information contained within them was classified. The parties have already submitted a formal request to the Parliament President (herself a member of the Socialist Party or SPD) for information regarding an investigation into the matter on Wednesday.
SPD chairman Hans-Willi Körfges has said that an inquiry must authorize prosecution against anyone found to be involved in the leaks. He said that the issues will be discussed behind closed doors and information regarding the inquiry will not be made immediately available to the public or the press.
Körfges stressed that anyone, ‘who published confidential documents, violates the law and endangers [our work],' would be punished.
Explaining why leaks impair the effectiveness of local government, he said politicians and police would be less inclined to take action in future because they would be thinking of political ramifications before doing their jobs.
The German government itself admits that the reason it will not do anything about the rapes is because of poltical reasons- i.e. they want their power and they do not care at all about Hans Q. Public, his family, his daughter, or anybody at all so long as they get to keep the party going. Now what does that sound like?
There is a disturbing similarity between the current state of the GOP and the EU governments, Germany or not. Germany is simply the proverbial ‘canary in the coal mine' because Germany is the ‘heart' of the EU project, and as such it is the epicenter for many of the social and political experiments that the EU conducts.
Politicians are the same anywhere in two ways- first, they reflect to an extent the nature of the society at its weakest points, since unlike we would like to believe, these politicians are the product of the culture, society, educational system, and time in which they live, and power also attracts the ambitious.
The second way politicians are universally similar is that they all want to stay in power. Now this can vary in how it manifests depending on the culture and disposition of the people. However, no politician simply ‘gives up' power once he has it for the sake of giving it up. In the case of a moral leader (which also, I should add, assumes a moral public on some level), he would give up office for principles- a greater good, such as when George Washington resigned the presidency after two terms as to set a president for future presidents.
On the other hand, a morally bankrupt, corrupt people produces a morally corrupt leader, and a morally corrupt leader cares only for law and order when it suits his personal gain, as the law is an obstruction to the centralization and consolidation of his rule for his own sake and not that of the greater good. There are near countless examples of this throughout history, and resemble the perniciousness of the demonic, fallen angels- when they have power over men, they do not relinquish it unless forced to, and is the reason why Jesus spoke the following:
‘Or how can anyone enter the strong man’s house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.' (Matthew 12:29)”
