“Politically related” car arsons in Berlin have dramatically increased in 2016

Berlin has seen a dramatic increase in car arsons so far in 2016, with both politically related arson and non-political arson on the rise.

In 2015, the police reported 179 cases of car being set on fire in the capital, 38 of which were political. But police figures seen by DPA last Friday show 213 cases recorded so far this year, 64 of which are suspected to have been politically motivated.

Authorities believe that the far-left scene are culpable for a large number of the acts, after an ongoing conflict with police started when officers raided an occupied house in the Friedrichshain district in January.

        Broken windows.
        Pay ‘kids’ a few bucks to torch cars, get the government run insurance to pay out and sell the victims a new car.
        Lather, rinse, repeat.

    It must be all those right wing fanatics just like in Marseilles and Malmö causing all the problems.
