Key heading: “The state gambled away its legitimacy”. Police are as much frustrated by the immigrant crime situation as are many German citizens but the situation does not change.
Junge Freiheit (translated):
If a prominent police officer hoists as laconically as drastically the white flag, all the alarm bells have to shriek: “We are at the end.” The situation does not allow “to fight the crime properly,” explains Jan Reinecke, Hamburger Landeschef of the Federal German Criminal Police Officer (BDK), through the media. Surprising is not the determination itself, but the indifference, with which also this alarm call reverberates and ebbs in public and media mainstream.
For it is not a specifically Hamburg crisis, which brings Reinecke to the discussion, even if the situation in individual regions may seem even less dramatic. It is far from enough to create a few more police posts in order to deal with the problem, even if policemen and stakeholders such as the BDK Landeschef ultimately aim to do so. For the ongoing police crisis is only a partial aspect of an emerging comprehensive state failure – an aspect, however, which the citizens are particularly intensely and painfully felt.
The detectives demand “clear announcements” from politics, which areas the police should neglect if there are always new priorities. In this resignational appeal is already a bankruptcy statement: arbitrary political prescriptions cause the state, which claims a “monopoly of power”, can no longer fulfill its core task – the guarantee of security and property of all citizens, without regard to origin and Status.
