“They despise our country and laugh at our justice,” Mr. Wendt said and warned that the police cannot address migrant crime unless the justice system is willing to step up and deport repeated offenders.
Mr. Wendt claims that officers in Germany are putting themselves at constant risk as many of the migrants are known to have a high level of violent behavior and attack police who attempt to arrest them.
“If there is no pre-trial detention made, no imprisonment imposed, and no deportations carried out, then the police make multiple arrests and the perpetrators” end up back on the streets, he said.
Mr. Wendt cited the “Casablanca Report” which documented some 2,244 North African migrant criminals in the city of Dusseldorf alone. According to the police union chief, the numbers for other major German cities are similar and the situation if anything has been exacerbated by the migrant crisis which has reinforced numbers in the already-existing migrant criminal gangs.
Last year, Mr. Wendt had made a similar statement at the height of the migrant crisis, and asked why “things always have to go up in flames” before politicians “react”.
In the meantime, the European Union border agency Frontex earlier this year reported that the future of the migrant crisis was young migrant men coming from Africa to Europe for better economic opportunities rather than legitimate refugees fleeing conflict or persecution.
