Violent crime rises in Germany and is attributed to refugees

BERLIN (Reuters) - Young male refugees in Germany got the blame on Wednesday for most of a two-year increase in violent crime, adding fuel to the country's political debate over migrants.

 

Violent crime rose by about 10 percent in 2015 and 2016, a study showed. It attributed more than 90 percent of that to young male refugees.

 

It noted, however, that migrants settling from war-torn countries such as Syria were much less likely to commit violent crimes that those from other places who were unlikely to be given asylum.

 

Migration will be a key issue in forthcoming coalition talks between Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD). The arrival of more than a million migrants since mid-2015 hurt both parties in last September's election.

 

The government-sponsored study showed a jump in violent crime committed by male migrants aged 14 to 30.

 

Christian Pfeiffer, a criminology expert and one of the study researchers, told Deutschlandfunk radio there were huge differences between various refugee groups depending on where they came from and how high their chances were of staying and gaining legal status in Germany.

 

Asylum seekers who are regarded as war refugees who have relatively good chances of staying in Germany tend to avoid trouble more, the study found.

 

Around 17 percent of violent crimes in Lower Saxony that were attributed to refugees, for example, were suspected of being committed by North African asylum seekers who made up less than 1 percent of the state's registered refugee population. North African asylum seekers have relatively slim chances of obtaining legal status in Germany.

 

"The situation is completely different for those who find out as soon as they arrive that they are totally undesirable here. No chance of working, of staying here," Pfeiffer said.

 

The study said reuniting refugees with their families by allowing them to come to Germany too could help to reduce violence. Such reunions look set to be a particularly contentious issue in talks about a new coalition government.

 

The predominantly young male majority of refugees live in Germany without partners, mothers, sisters or other females whom the study sees as a "violence-preventing, civilising force."

Aaaaaahhh...more fuel for right and their hateful politics!

Read the whole article: 

- no mentioning of who these crimes are committed to and under what circumstances

- refugees from war- countries commit far less crimes 

- bringing together families might very well bring crime - rates down

 

But, please... by all means...keep banging the war drum!

Being against violent crime, rapes and terrorism is 'hateful' ? Of course they don't mention who the criminals are or where from that would be 'racist'. We all know what religion most of them will be followers of though- shhh

Actually, I think, it has the opposite effect.

 

The crimes, some of the bad apples have done, has largely beening unreported. This was the idea of putting all the immigrants in the same basket and thinking that they are all the same. Well, they are not.

 

When the issue of the criminals is addressed correctly, the rest of the immigrants, who don't do crimes, can finally feel separated from the bad apples. 

 

The general public can also differentiate the good from the bad. Their attitude towards immigrants and refugees will improve once the criminals have been shown the door out of the country.

Yes the liberal lefty snowflakes don't like the truth.

 

It has been happening in the UK for a few years. France the same.

But lets put our heads in the sand and hold hands singing we can all live together nicely. The EU plan is working well.

Actually crimes committed by foreigners have twice the likelihood of being reported than those by German nationals. One third of violent crimes committed by asylum seekers are against those in the same situation. As stated above those who have the greatest chance of being vetted as genuine refugees usually do not commit crime. Germany, as is the case with other EU countries, are still in the process of completing relevant government to government negotiations to ease the deportation process of rejected asylum seekers, though some foreign countries have already agree to accepting returnees.

 

Some more detail in reports below e.g.

 

an increase of 10.4 percent in reported violent crimes  in 2015 and 2016. More than 90 percent of the increase (not of total violent crimes) was said to be attributable to migrants.

From the article:

"Violent crime rose by about 10 percent in 2015 and 2016, a study showed. It attributed more than 90 percent of that to young male refugees."

"The government-sponsored study showed a jump in violent crime committed by male migrants aged 14 to 30."

 

Just wonder if countries ever considered just banning this demographic, i.e., young male refugees.  A tad simplistic, but this group seems to cause an awful lot of problems all over the place.

they could have paid me half as much as they paid the people who did the study, .....and I would have come to the same conclusion, ....and sooner.

....and females.  They can certainly work.  As I said, my suggestion was a simplistic notion which addresses the main issue, i.e., the rise in violent crime of which more than 90 percent was attributable to young male refugees.  We're not talking about bringing in able-bodied workers or anything else, just reducing violent crime.
