Left-Wing Politician Bemoans Lack of Police Action Against Migrant Criminals

Left-wing Green Party politician Peter Seifert has complained of a lack of action by German police against migrant criminals, increasing the popularity of the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

In a letter to a local newspaper, Seifert, who serves on the city council in Balingen, wrote a personal account of his experiences with a violent drunken asylum seeker, Die Welt reports.

Seifert said he was forced to call the police because the migrant was “rioting”. Officers initially came and arrested him, but he “came back after three-quarters of an hour to continue where he left off before”.
