Youth Violence: The Neverending Story

Attack in the subway station Friedrichstrasse in Berlin on an early Saturday morning on 23 April. 01. May 2011 2011-05-01 11:38:21 hit one evening in December 2007, Serkan A., 20 years old, and Spyridon L., 17 years old, a man in the Munich subway station Arabella Park from the back down . Serkan A. and L.

Spyridon had been drinking. They had smoked in the car, the victim had made them aware of the smoking ban. After they had beaten the man who came Serkan A. and L. Spyridon in his face. With multiple lead. A security camera filmed the attack. see The recordings are a testament of extreme brutality, two young men who not only take into account that the victim does not survive the attack, but obviously want to kill.

Friedrichstrasse in Berlin, 23 April 2011 For the want someone to another occurs in the head. The man survived badly injured. The act led to a debate in the country, it was violent and passionate. Politicians called for the Union to introduce a warning shot arrest. In addition, criminals would have 18 to 21 years be treated like adults, the maximum youth sentence should be increased from ten to 15 years.

When the Hessian Minister President Roland Koch (CDU), said: "We have too many criminal young foreigners" because there were hardly any other topic on the political agenda. The SPD gave Cooking "brutalstmöglichen populism" in front. The current juvenile justice system was sufficient "to necessary and appropriate penalties against juvenile offenders to pronounce," it said in the Federal Ministry of Justice Brigitte Zypries (CDU).

After a few months, the debate was over. Everyone had said what he had to say. In June 2009, announced Minister of the Interior Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) that Germany was a safe country. The youth violence go back, but already existing violence of great concern. As on 12 Dominik Brunner died in September 2009, the public cried again.

Brunner wanted to protect a group of students at the Munich train station Solln two clubs. Mark S. and L. Sebastian had been drinking. On the train threatened and insulted her four students. Brunner intervened, he showed moral courage. At the station Solln beat Mark S., 18 years old, and Sebastian L., aged 17, Brunner down.

Mark S. kicked him in the head. The violence shook the country. Brunner was a hero. He had not let do that racket in public space can do what they want. Politicians of the CSU requested after the fact again a sharper juvenile justice and the application of adult criminal offenders in the 18 years or older.

Zypries rejected the calls for tougher laws again. "Existing laws allow enough leeway for the judges," she said. And: ". The debate is very old," Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) called for more police officers and an extensive video surveillance. And she warned of a surrender of the state from juvenile delinquency.

The Frankfurter Rundschau wrote: "We will be having more back to Pavlov's discussions: What to do about the perpetrators? Tougher penalties? Consistent approach? Enhanced prevention? "The Memorial to civil courage" in Dominik Brunner's home town in the Bavarian Ergoldsbach Two weeks after the death of Brunner, another known fact.

She had already occurred in June 2009. Two teenagers were in the train station Hamburg-Harburg beat up a man because he refused to give them twenty cents. Berhan I. and K. Onur, 16 and 17 years old were, their victim in the head and against your body. The man who died was four weeks after the fact.

There was no debate, in September 2009 but some newspaper articles. Including a brief text in the "Sueddeutsche Zeitung" that began with the words: "Why is it that some violent crimes are hardly taken note? Because they at first appear almost every day or because - as in this case - the victim dies reported until weeks after the fact "The readers of this newspaper in October 2009 about their experiences in public space.

They described attacks they described their everyday fears - mostly from young drunken men. The report paints a depressing picture. Baden-Wuerttemberg Interior Minister Heribert Rech (CDU) spoke out shortly afterwards for a drinking ban on trains. 2009 there were 71 105 recorded cases of severe injury and dangerous on roads, trails or courts.

This affected 88 967 people. An average of 2009 words each day around 244 people were in the public sphere victims of brutal thugs. More than half the suspects was a child, a teenager or an adolescent. 38 percent of the suspects had been drinking alcohol. These are the numbers of police crime statistics.

There are two interpretations: 1 Less than a year ago (72 904 cases). 2. Much more than in the year 2000 (44.737 cases). Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere (CDU) said at the presentation of the statistics: "Germany has become safer. Germany is one of the safest countries in the world.

"Worryingly, however, is the rising number of crimes under the influence of alcohol and the increasing intensity of the violence. Often after violence only short messages appear in the local press. A year ago, was such a message: ". Woman, 41, attacked on the street in Düsseldorf" The woman's name was Susan Leinemann.

The writer and journalist later described impressive in the "Time", what had happened to her: She had been attacked by youths who had "landed outside", "at a subway station, who said nothing to them. Aimless, yet they are determined wandered, drunk, violent, broke. That our paths crossed.

A bad accident, "The youngsters had beaten her with a stair rung in the face, it seriously hurt. "I know these three guys not, I have not had any history with them, no conflict, nothing. All that unites us is the fact that they have almost killed me. Just like that, by the way, arbitrary.

"Often, the perpetrators have fun in the violence. Reasons? "There have been written far too many offenders compassionate stories, I do not even write one. A broken childhood is not a free pass for murder and mayhem "on a Hamburg S-Bahn station stabbed in May 2010 the 16-year-old Elias A.

-. An intensive offender - a nine year old. to do A woman who day after day with such criminal youths had was the Berlin Youth Judges Kirsten Heisig. She had warned that the police have great difficulty enforcing their authority. She had also represented the view that Germany had an integration problem, which is reflected in the power segment pointed.

"The End of Patience" is her book, it was the summer of 2010 shortly after her death. Heisig warned in the preface: "Several deeds are increasingly recognizing that a creeping brutalization took place in the minds of many children and young people who may be discharged not only in particularly horrific cases such as the deadly commuter train attack in Munich-Solln, but experience with gradual differences has a form of standardization.

"In a good week, on the night of Holy Saturday, attacked the 18-year-old student from Torben P." of pure belligerence "a man in the Berlin U-Bahn station Friedrichstrasse. Another case which is causing a stir in the country. Especially in February, three teenagers had only beaten a painter on the Berlin U-Bahnhof Lichtenberg in a coma.

Again, there are images of a surveillance camera: Torben P. knocks down his victim with a bottle. Then he meets once, twice, thrice, four times on the head of lying before him, then dances on the page and before he can again ewe lamb, held up by a courageous man. Federal Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger (FDP) said after the crime, she would allow a warning shot detention for young offenders.

A bill is due by Pentecost. An increase in the maximum penalty in juvenile justice from ten to 15 years is provided. The police union (GdP) called for more police and more security personnel. Moreover, the issue will underestimate alcohol. "70 percent of juvenile violent offenders are the influence of alcohol," says the chairman of the GDP, Bernhard Witt skin.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) called for a nationwide ban on alcohol in public transport. Torben P., after confessing the time being put back at home, the warrant has been out of prison. Berlin's Interior Senator Ehrhart Körting (SPD), commented by saying: ". Such decisions can help to alienate the right of the people," Berlin's CDU regional and Group Chairman Frank Henkel said, "If brutal racket as you wish spread fear and terror can run, properly something wrong in our city.

"Last Thursday raided three hits a man on a subway station in Berlin-Wedding. The perpetrators beat him, wounded him with a knife and were still on him as he lay on the ground.
