Of course the German police are not going to say anything. Like at the Nuremberg Trials, their defense is “Merkel told us so.” That is still no excuse for immoral behavior.
Merkel only has as much power to abuse the German people in as much as the police, military, and other governmental organs allow her to. They do not have to listen. That doesn’t mean they won’t lose their jobs, but the fact remains that the abuse exists because the enforcers– the little people who have to do the “dirty work” keep doing it in exchange for a meager paycheck. People always say that Stalin murdered millions- which is true– but it was his underlings who pulled the trigger. Stalin never fired so much as a shot himself.
Don’t get me wrong- Merkel must pay, but her vassals under her are just as responsible for the current disordered state within Germany.
From Der Westen:
The men attacked the women directly from behind, held their arms, touched their breasts, tried to reach their crotch. Mareike Breuer defended herself vigorously, tore herself free and ran to help her friend. “She was under shock. Motionless,” says Mareike Breuer. “I didn’t even scream. I never thought anything like that could happen in Meschede.” The friends immediately called the police. “We were just afraid that they would come back. Or find out where I live.”
The police deliberately refrained from a press report. The case only became known thanks to the women. “I don’t understand why that wasn’t released to the press. It’s also a warning for other women. That you need to be more careful at night,” says Mareike Breuer. Her voice wavers. When the women asked the police, they say they were advised not to go to the media under any circumstances. “Because that could give rise to unpleasant questions.” It was for the protection of the victims. The police said they feared negative reactions among the population.
Officials dispute this. Press spokesman Ludger Rath says: “We didn’t want to scare the perpetrators away.” Very quickly the poluce knew who was involved: two men from Morocco, 20 and 21, housed in the emergency accommodation for asylum seekers in the Franz-Stahlmecke school. In case of publication, according to Rath, there would have been reactions in the social networks. “The perpetrators could have become aware of it and fled.” But the tactic didn’t work: the men disappeared on the night of the attack. The police know their names, they have their photos – but they don’t know where they are or whether they are in Germany.
