It’s Official!

If ever there was a doubt in our minds …

The president of the German Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundes Kriminalamt, BKA) Holger Münch confirms our suspicions.

"The fact is that in 2015 roughly one million people came to Germany [seeking asylum], and it did not lead to an commensurate rise in criminal acts."

– Holger Münch, President of the German Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundes Kriminalamt, BKA) at the BKA Autumn Conferrence, Mainz, Germany Nov. 16th, 2016.

»Tatsache ist, dass 2015 rund eine Million Menschen nach Deutschland gekommen sind, und das hat nicht zu einem entsprechenden Anwachsen von Straftaten geführt.«*

– Holger Münch, Präsident des Bundeskriminalamtes (BKA) auf der BKA-Herbsttagung, Mainz, 16.11.2016.

So since the foreigners clearly are not the cause of the alleged rise in crime rates and the perceived decline in public safety that has recently preoccupied the German media, and driven mobs of “concerned citizens” on the streets, when do we get to start deporting criminal and “poorly integrated” locals, so as our foreign guests and neighbors, and the rest of us can rest easy again?
