Police union GdP warns of self-justice
The Union of Police (GdP) warns of the risk of increasing self-justice. "The state is there to protect its citizens with police and justice," said GdP federal president Oliver Malchow newspaper "New Osnabrück" (Tuesday). "But if he can no longer afford it in the eyes of many citizens, there is a danger that citizens will take the law into their own hands and rely on civilian guards and self-reliance." This is a frightening trend. Social media can quickly mobilize many people. "Every village fight can be a hunt." These are crimes that are difficult to punish.
According to GDP, the state is to blame for this development. The reduction of 16,000 jobs in the police over the years has meant that all emergency services are always planned. "For operational situations such as in Chemnitz, hundreds of colleagues would always have to be kept in reserve, which is totally unrealistic," Malchow told the newspaper. But the ME lacked the necessary troops. GDP demands 20,000 new jobs. "The state has failed in terms of internal security because staff has reduced enormously, and this problem can not be solved quickly," said the GdP boss. (dpa, afp)
