Recently, a court in Nuremberg, Germany, freed a 20-year-old Afghan asylum seeker who was in custody waiting to be deported. He was freed because Angela Merkel postponed all deportations to Afghanistan until July. Meanwhile, police violently clashed with around 300 students over his deportation. These students were his classmates- though some of them just joined because they’re anti-police
In Germany, 37% of young people said they would join an uprising against their own government. All it took for these German youth is one of their classmates being legally deported-- his immigration status failed-- and hundreds of young people looking for an excuse to rise against the government did exactly that-- and took it out on the police.
The students’ response to all of this leaves me wondering…
What happened to the respect and admiration for the work that police officers do?
