Germany – Rosenheim Police Under Investigation For ‘Roman Salutes’, Right-Wing Protests In Kandel

||| Zeit Online and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung |||

Twitter may have lifted their Quality Filter Ban since yesterday, that doesn’t mean you can write anything but ‘Roman Salute’ in your article titles still, unless you’re German media and realize the seriousness of current political climate in Europe’s biggest economy, then you just start putting ‘Hitler Salutes’ to make clear to the reading public what the general mood is like.

Events are unfolding in Germany on a daily basis and after yesterday’s large-scale protests in Chemnitz, two new situations are developing today.

<b> Rosenheim</b>

Whereas earlier this week, see our related coverage, some WWII graffiti popped up in Berlin on a 9 square meter scale, today it has been reported that two police officers in Rosenheim are under investigation for making the ‘Hitler salute’ towards an immigrant and making racist comments during a pub visit. The police chief in the southern city of Rosenheim, Bavaria admitted that two of his officers were under investigation for "table talk" which he claimed occurred under the influence of alcohol.

No details of the comments were given, with police saying that more witnesses were being sought. The incident comes amid growing concern about far-right elements in Germany's police forces after it was revealed earlier this week that the police report about the stabbing in Chemnitz was leaked to the right-wing political group Pegida by a police officer from the city.

Pegida subsequently published the document, showing that the perpetrators were young refugees, online.

Making the Nazi salute in public is illegal in Germany under the current constitution, as is the use of wearing any Nazi insignia.

<b> Kandel</b>

Fifteen-year-old Mia V. was stabbed to death with a kitchen knife outside of a local drugstore in Kandel on December 27 last year. Her ex-boyfriend, an Afghan refugee, was accused of murdering Mia after she broke up with him.

Resistance!&quot; and &quot;Wir sind das Volk&quot; chants as well. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Kandel?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Kandel</a> <a href="https://t.co/GRJ8PrSqQ4">pic.twitter.com/GRJ8PrSqQ4</a></p>&mdash; Rebecca Staudenmaier (@restaudenmaier) <a href="https://twitter.com/restaudenmaier/status/1035888822641467393?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 1, 2018</a></blockquote>

Both the teen and her parents went to the police to report his threatening behaviour but they failed to act. The young man stabbed the German girl a few days later. As the state court is due to finally deliver a verdict on the murder trial this Monday, right-wing groups have been protesting in the small town (with a population of less than 9,000) all weekend.

The western German town has seen months of pro- and anti-migrant protests over a teen girl&#39;s murder. <a href="https://t.co/ybskVVXiJ9">https://t.co/ybskVVXiJ9</a></p>&mdash; DW News (@dwnews) <a href="https://twitter.com/dwnews/status/1036166622480879616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 2, 2018</a></blockquote>

According to police, some 350 people attended the demonstration organized by the right-wing "Kandel Women's Alliance" or "Frauenbündnis Kandel," who want the maximum punishment for the young refugee. Police is already braced for the verdict tomorrow.

About time the police get on the right side! They'll probably throw the book at the cops and give the murderer probation. When the right get big groups together they should march on the government! That's what it's going to take to get their country back!
