Leaked Report Shows Violence Spirals In Germany's Refugee Shelters

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,

  • German authorities have justified their failure to inform the public about the scale of the problem by citing the privacy rights of the criminal offenders.
  • Experts have long warned that the practice of housing migrants from different ethnic and religious backgrounds in tight accommodations is the ideal breeding ground for violence.
  • "A maintenance man who worked in a refugee shelter reported 'mafia-like' conditions. Refugees were required to pay for access to the electrical sockets there." — Der Tagesspiegel.

Violent crime, including murder, rape and physical assault, is running rampant in German asylum shelters, according to a leaked intelligence report. German authorities, who appear powerless to stem the rising tide of violence, have justified their failure to inform the public about the scale of the problem by citing the privacy rights of the criminal offenders.

The report, leaked to the newspaper Bild, was prepared for Markus Ulbig, the interior minister of Saxony, where more than 40,000 migrants are being housed in refugee shelters. According to the report, there were ten murders or attempted murders at Saxon migrant shelters in 2016, as well as 960 physical assaults, 671 cases of grievous bodily injury, seven rapes, 10 sexual assaults of children and 268 cases of drug trafficking. The report also cited hundreds of incidents of theft, coercion, arson, brawls and attacks on police officers.

The violence at Saxon migrant shelters continued during the first six months of 2017: there were more than 500 physical assaults, several homicides and hundreds of reported thefts.

Experts have long warned that the practice of housing migrants from different ethnic and religious backgrounds in tight accommodations is the ideal breeding ground for violence.

In Germany as a whole, around 40,000 crimes — nearly 150 each day — were reported in refugee shelters during the first nine months of 2016, according to another leaked report by the Federal Criminal Police (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA). These crimes included 17,200 physical assaults, 6,500 thefts, 510 sexual assaults and 139 murders or attempted murders.

Observers say this is just the tip of the iceberg, as most crimes go unreported out of a fear of revenge. The BKA does not make public its data about migrant shelter criminality and there have been no additional leaks of such information. Anecdotal evidence, however, suggests that migrant-on-migrant crime is endemic across Germany.

In Saxony-Anhalt, for instance, a parliamentary inquiry into a stabbing between Afghans at an asylum shelter in Bernburg revealed that migrants have assaulted other migrants at shelters across the state, including in Aschersleben, Ballenstedet, Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Burg, Dessau-Rosslau, Eckartsberg, Genthin, Haldensleben, Halle, Harbke, Kemberg, Leuna, Lutherstadt Eisleben, Magdeburg, Naumburg, Oranienbaum, Oschersleben, Salzwedel, Sangerhausen, Seegebiet Mansfelder Land, Stassfurt, Wanzleben, Weissenfels, Wolmirstedt, Zeitz and Zerbst. The stabbings involved migrants from Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Benin, Bosnia, Burkina Faso, Eritrea, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, India, Iran, Iraq, Kosovo, Macedonia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Serbia, Somalia, Syria, Turkey and Ukraine.

In Baden-Württemberg, 87% of all migrants who were victims of crimes in 2016 were attacked by other migrants, according to official statistics.

In Berlin, police recorded more than 2,000 physical assaults at migrant shelters during 2016, in addition to 800 thefts, 86 rapes and three homicides. Der Tagesspiegel reported:

"The fact that there is an accumulation of criminal offenses in refugee shelters is not surprising. Cramped spaces, wearisome waiting, constant noise and unrest and an uncertain future generates aggression. There are also ethnic and religious conflicts. Many Syrians cannot deal with Afghans, many Serbs do not deal with Iraqis, many Muslims reject Christians, many Sunnis do not want to deal with Shiites. A maintenance man who worked in a refugee shelter reported 'mafia-like' conditions. Refugees were required to pay for access to the electrical sockets there."

In Hamburg, 219 sexual assaults against women and children at migrant shelters were reported there during the first six months of 2017, compared to 200 such assaults reported during the same period in 2016.

In Schleswig-Holstein, rival gangs of migrants competing for the drug trade at migrant shelters in Lübeck and other cities have attacked each other in more than a dozen mass brawls. The gangs are said to involve migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, as well as from North Africa.

In Bavaria, a 41-year-old Afghan migrant at a refugee shelter in Arnschwang stabbed to death an eight-year-old boy from Russia, apparently because the boy was too noisy. It later emerged that a Bavarian court had warned that the Afghan, who had previously been arrested for arson, posed a threat to others. Bavarian officials had ignored that warning and placed him at the refugee shelter where the boy was staying with his mother. The murder prompted calls for the 6,500 single mothers at migrant shelters in Bavaria to be housed in separate units.

Also in Bavaria, a 47-year-old migrant from Kazakhstan at a refugee shelter in Eggenfelden castrated a 28-year-old Ukrainian migrant, who subsequently bled to death. It later emerged that the Kazakh man had been raped by the Ukrainian man, who was aided and abetted by a group of migrants from Chechnya.

In Lower Saxony, a 26-year-old migrant from Sudan sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl from Serbia at a refugee shelter in Braunschweig. More than a hundred Serbians attempted to deliver street justice before police intervened with pepper spray.

In North Rhine-Westphalia, a mass brawl at a migrant shelter in Dortmund resulted in the stabbing of a 28-year-old migrant. When police attempted to arrest the 19-year-old perpetrator, they were attacked by a mob of more than 40 migrants. Police used dogs to restore order. In Cologne, a mass brawl between groups of African migrants resulted in the stabbing death of a 22-year-old man. At an asylum shelter in Espelkamp, a 32-year-old migrant from Lebanon stabbed another migrant, who bled to death at the scene. The Lebanese man was arrested and then released; the public prosecutor said there was insufficient evidence to prosecute the man.

In Hesse, migrants have stabbed other migrants at shelters in Bad Salzschlirf, Dillenburg, Ehrenberg, Fulda, Giessen, Helsa, Hilchenbach, Kassel and Wetzlar.

Elsewhere in Germany, migrants have stabbed other migrants at shelters in Albbruck, Alsterdorf, Asperg, Bad Aibling, Beelitz, Bonn, Dorfen, Gelsenkirchen, Gera, Görlitz, Helmstedt, Hilchenbach, Iserlohn, Kirchheim, Leipzig, Neugablonz, Neustadt, Peine, Prenzlau, Schaidt, Simmozheim, Tröstau, Ulm, Usedom, Waffenbrunn, Wardenburg, Weißenbrunn, Weißkeißel, and Wernau — among others.

Back in Saxony, when Bild asked why such crimes, which are rarely reported by the police or media, are being kept secret, an interior ministry spokesperson replied that publishing such information was not in the public interest: "The facts which the investigative authorities deem appropriate for public knowledge depend on the circumstances of the individual case."

The interior ministry said that the high levels of violence were not surprising:

"In general, long-term accommodation of many people in small spaces, such as first-time reception facilities, can lead to temporary, exceptional mental states which can lead to physical disputes in individual cases. Such an effect is further enhanced by heterogeneous ethnic and cultural backgrounds."

The interior ministry added that some of the violence could be prevented by providing migrants with "a sufficient supply of leisure activities."

Question: How many crimes, how many murders per year in an American city of 1'000'000?Ouch.You will say "most of those in the non-WASP parts of the city, not concerning us". Same with the refugee homes. Not nice, no way. But when you start labelling all of them, or best all foreigners which are not lily white and christian, as dangerous, you will create more domestic terrorists than you can count.Unluckily, populists see doing just this as a way to power. Works well in dumbed out societies. Good luck.

A good source of organ harvesting for the European elites perhaps?Or let them kill each other and solve that problem without intervention.

We didn't need information to be leaked to know this. One of the (many) problems with Germany's media is that the great majority of instances of violence perpetrated by refugees, immigrants, etc., are only (in my belief, purposefully) covered regionally, meaning the people in Upper Bavaria don't hear about the problems in North Rhine Westphalia and vice versa. This way, everything has the appearance of being in order.

As long as these feral dogs are killing, raping, and stabbing each other. Put a big iron gate and high wall around these shelters and feed them like the animals they behave as.

That's nothing like the feral dogs killing raping and stabbingeach other on Black Friday when commercial retail collapses.Then when the fresh food cold chain collapses down to justAmazon Whole Foods, and a head of lettuce is $5, you're gonna see a lot of dog kibble and Big Slurp mass killings.WINNING!! KIBBLE!!

There is a much bigger problem than violence in "refugee" shelters. A Berlin Police instructor said there are unbelievable things going on with the next generation of police officers. A lot of them have muslim backround, show absolutley no respect for authorities and show violent behavior against instructors. but the state government puts them in and dont kick them out. Low Education, lot of violence in the police againt germans.... for sure these cops will have duty when there is a patriotic demonstration... good bye germany...

The atlanticist filth that own Germany and its slums that have imported USSA'S detritus from its serial ongoing judaic wars are more than happy with STASI "Erika" Merkill's slash Soros plan to destroy the German nation once and for all. Meanwhile the Pedophile Politburo in Natostan sewer Brussels, capital of the evil EUSSR imagines that the United States of Urupp is just around the corner and the chosenites will be running things just like in USSA when the last few "kinks" are ironed out. Coudenhove Kalergi must be laughing in hell at the insanity he has spawned. Meanwhile over 40% of all new police recruits in Germany are from "a migratory background" (meaning muslim) according to anonymous insider sources appearing in the German press. Will the libtard brain dead wake up before they are all allah akbarred? Nah..., they are too busy schlepping their beloved hollow cost guilt and jabbing their hand-held apple organs ever to entertain an original thought. Onward to Shitzville. https://www.rbb24.de/politik/beitrag/2017/11/berlin-probleme-an-polizei…  "Count" Richard Coudenhove Kalergi’s Plan outlined by Gerd Honsik “Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination, ... the elimination of nations by means of ethnic separatist movements or mass allogeneic (genetically dissimilar) immigration to create a multiethnic flock without quality, easily controllable by the ruling class. Kalergi characterized the multiethnic flock as cruel and unfaithful but maintained the elite must deliberately create them in order to achieve their own superiority: ‘Then the elite will first eliminate democracy – the rule of the people. Next, the elite will eliminate the people via miscegenation, thereby replacing the ruling white race with an easily controllable mestizo race. By abolishing the principle of equality of all before the law, avoiding and punishing any criticism of minorities, and protecting minorities with special laws, the masses will be suppressed.’' "Count" Richard Coudenhove von Kalergi's genocidal screed "Practical Idealism" in pdf format (link below) is the original Austrian NAZI and his satanic tome makes Onkel Adolf's "Mein Kampf" look like a bedtime story. This freak laid the foundations for the abomination known as the EUSSR with its capital in the sewer Brussels, seat of the totalitarian Pedophile Politburo that runs the EUSSR for the banksters and satanists.http://www.mediafire.com/file/vcpu7j7hakukmde/Coudenhove-Kalergi-Practic...

Merkel's lunacy used to perplex the compos out of my fuckin' mentos, until I read about the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan on Martin Armstrong's blog a  couple years back. Talk about the penny—I mean Euro—dropping. Well sort of...trying to imagine what it'd feel like inhabiting the consciousness that conceived of—or would go along with—such surreal, obscene, batshit? Nope. Sorry, no way. Can't do it. CANNOT. FUCKING. DO. IT. (I was raised devout Catholic, but built up enough cognitive antibodies that I had lapsed by age 10 or 11; overcoming chronic exposure to thermonuclear grade bullshit like religion as a kid develops strong resistance to bullshit for life ;)Now Germany, you're sure? Absolutely? We can't convince you to accidentally boot the old hag down a couple dozen flights of stairs, by mistake (twice), no? Blowing up a five-storey high brown paper bag right next to her ear wihile she's dozing off during a Great Cull Programme Planning Meeting...massive heart attack, oh dear how sad, let's celebrate...no? What about 'less lethal' options—frontal lobotomy and a cushy retirement role in Brussells (a match made in heaven)? No? Oh well, enjoy Götterdämmerung I guess. Sigh. Do you have to bring the rest of Europe down with you? You SURE you couldn't arrange an accidental sawn-off shotgun discharge or three (point blank)...misfires happen, y'know? No? Dammit—intractible fuckin' teutonic stubbonery! See you at Ragnarok then. PS: Just thought of something: won't need to remember the keyboard shortcuts for umlauts for much longer. I knew I'd find a cup half fulll perspective if I just kept looking. Sweet, I can go about my day without such a debilitating blood pressure level now (he said right before opening another Zero Hedge article, the resulting dose of reality precipitating a moderate verbal rant to an invisible—yet appreciative—audience ;)

Hey, the Kazakh guy doesn't belong on that list. Apparently he had excellent reasons for going medieval, and his victim was no innocent. You poke the bull, you get the horns. Or the blade. Next time, keep it in your pants and you won't lose it, mkay?

A little context although I know context is frowned on here... for the population sizes we're discussing, these figures aren't that exceptional compared to some of the rougher urban parts of the USA.  Thousands of refugees fleeing violent war zones packed into camps and you expected... what exactly?
