German first responders demoralised by brutal attacks

Emergency responders and medical professionals in Germany are feeling demoralized and desperate because of the impudent attitudes and physical violence they face from migrants daily. And the political class has remained unresponsive.

    Whenever the self-proclaimed rescuers of migrants at sea belonging to Sea Watch from Berlin, Sea Eye from Regensburg or Mission Lifeline from Dresden show up with their ships off the Libyan coast to put themselves in the service of de facto organised crime, they justify their activity with reference to Article 1 of German Basic Law: respect for the dignity of other people.

    Unfortunately, their maritime clientele do not care about the dignity of other people, even if they are doctors, paramedics, policemen and firefighters. Many have become painfully aware of this fact in Germany.

    A 46-year-old paramedic, the German victim of an Eritrean, suffered a traumatic brain injury, a broken jaw, missing teeth and massive facial cuts. She was badly injured in the Upper Bavarian town of Ottobrunn just over 14 days ago, by the migrant who had used the shuttle service across the Mediterranean in 2015. He has since lived with his mates from Ethiopia and other African countries as one of the “unaccompanied minor refugees”.

    His explanation of why he even threw a full bottle of whiskey at the ambulance sounds bizarre – but should surprise no one: he had mistaken their car for a police emergency vehicle.

    Angela Merkel’s “guests”, as migrants are called in Germany, are now older and even more rebellious, unrestrained and brutal, says news editor Hans-Hermann Gockel who worked for Sat.1 and N24 for over two decades.

    Already in October 2015, a state report of the State Office of Criminal Investigation (LKA) Hamburg on the gentlemen who were received in Germany with open arms: “Their dealings with other people is often disrespectful and characterized by a lack of recognition of local values ​​and standards. The behavior of the group of highly-delinquent unaccompanied minor refugees is to be characterized as aggressive, disrespectful and condescending.”

    Reliable statistics on how often doctors, paramedics and rescue teams are attacked by refugees do not exist. “It should probably not exist,” says Gockel. “Instead, it is repressed and covered up. Unless an attack like that in Ottobrunn has had too many people downplaying it as unimportant.”

    The dramatically increasing disrespect towards doctors and emergency services is a cause of great concern for the psychologist of the Munich fire department, Andreas Müller-Cyran: “People need the appreciation of their actions. From this they are drawing the strength to handle the burdens of their profession.

    “If this esteem is lost and they are even attacked, it shatters the helpers to the core. That’s more traumatic than everything they have to cope with in a mission,” Müller-Cyran told German weekly Junge Freiheit.

    In the end, the feeling of helplessness and, at worst resignation, remains. The emergency doctor of Ottobrunn will never receive any compensation. And sadly, the asylum seeker from Eritrea, who smashed her jaw and knocked her teeth out, had nothing to gain from his actions.

    Rainer Wendt, the chairman of the German Police Union (DPolG), was asked during an ARD broadcast, if there was something like a censorship order. “No, it does not exist. The trouble is, every civil servant knows that he has to fulfill a certain political expectation,” was his startlingly honest answer.

    Siegfried Maier of the Bavarian Fire Brigade Union also complained that many public prosecutors have stopped advertising for rescue workers for lack of public interest. “Colleagues,” says Maier, “are increasingly frustrated and often no longer report offenses.”

    More and more paramedics, emergency responders and medical professionals now feel despair. Physical violence and the impudent behavior of many migrants have demoralized them, including a doctor from Deggendorf, who does not want to treat any more “refugees”.

    Three years of service at the asylum home has worn him down. In the weekly Die Zeit, he described half of his patients as “medical tourists” who would be “cheeky and demanding” during consultations. “There are people coming here who want Viagra,” he said.

    Emergency doctors are insulted, spit on, bitten and beaten. Even in tranquil cities like Lüneburg and Hamelin, special forces had to come to the rescue of law enforcement to protect hospital staff.

    The most recent spectacular case is dated June 22, when the staff of the University of Cologne were under police protection for hours, after 200 members of a clan threatened to storm the building. A member of the clan wanted to lynch the chief physician. The cause was the death of a six-year-old girl who had not survived complicated heart surgery.

    Despite all the attacks, most doctors have remained silent. Only a few hospital managers have had the courage to speak out, in plain language. People with a migration background, according to the head of the Franziskus-Hospital in Bielefeld, often play the “xenophobia” card if challenged, a popular ruse that unfortunately has had great success.
