Germany sees spike in violent crime from migrants but blames ‘racism’

Germany has seen a 10 percent rise in violent crime from migrants, but national TV has blamed it on "racism".

    A new representative study in Lower Saxony found that violent crime has risen by 10 percent and a staggering 92 percent of this increase was committed by “refugees” alone, while they make up only 1.9 percent of the population.

    ZDF heute presented the comparative figures gleaned from police statistics.

    The authors of the study argue that Lower Saxony is representative and that their findings can be generalised and applied to the country as a whole.

    Before 2015, Germany saw a continuous downward trend in violent crime, with a decrease of -21.9 percent over the last decade.

    National television ARD has told its viewers that the spike in violent crime is not the fault of migrants, but due to “racism”.

    “If Peter is attacked by Paul, he is 13 percent likely to report it. But if he is attacked by Mehmet or Igor, he is 27 percent likely to report it.” Christian Pfeiffer, a criminologist and member of the Social Democrat Party told the broadcaster.

    But the vice chairman of the Association of German Criminal Investigators, Ulf Küch, commented on this assertion in an interview with Die Welt:

    “Pfeiffer is correct insofar that foreigners are more frequently reported. Not in the case of serious crimes though — violent crimes and murders are almost always reported — but in the case of minor offenses a foreigner is more likely to be suspected by the police.”

    Pfeiffer identified other factors that make refugees appear more criminal than Germans: “Particularly refugees from Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco frequently commit crimes. They seldom have a chance of staying in Germany. Refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq do not become offenders that often. They are eager not to risk their stay in Germany.”

    But the official German crime stats from 2016 revealed that Afghans, for example, despite their eagerness not to risk their stay in Germany, still commit nine times more murders, and more than ten times more sexual offenses, relative to Germans.
