After a jogger in her 50s was brutally raped as she went running in a popular park in the eastern German city of Leipzig on Friday, the city police are instructing women not to run or jog alone. Leipzig Police responded to the heinous crime saying that “it would be better if women jogged in pairs, or at the least that they make sure that there is always someone else around.”
“When they run past someone, joggers should always look back to make sure they are not about to be attacked,” the spokesperson for the Leipzig Police said.
According to the police record, a manhunt is underway for a young "southerner," a politically correct euphemism used in Germany to describe an Arab or North African man.
“This is Germany in the twelfth year under Angela Merkel. And this is supposed to be the land in which we live well and enjoy living,” said Jörg Meuthen, the spokesman for the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, referring to Merkel’s ironic election campaign slogan: “For a Germany in which we live well and enjoy living.”
“During the assault, he kicked and punched the women so hard in her face that she had to undergo emergency surgery after she was found,” a German news website wrote, describing the crime. The local newspaper Leipziger Volkszeitung reported the incident over the weekend:
The police continue to look for the culprit following the brutal rape of a jogger in Leipzig’s Rosental Park. Few tips have been received by Saturday afternoon.” But we don’t have any hot traces so far,” said the police spokesman Uwe Voigt responding the newspaper query. The investigations will continue over the weekend “in full swing.”
The Police are taking the case very seriously and have advised women to be watchful in Leipzig’s forests and parks till further notice, even during the day time. It would be better to run in pairs or at least to see if someone is reachable nearby,” recommended police spokesman Voigt. [Translation by author]
Germany has seen a spike in violent crimes committed by migrants since Chancellor Merkel opened the country’s borders to illegal migrants. According to Germany’s Federal Crime Bureau (BKA), the equivalent of the American FBI, these new migrants make up for merely 2 percent of the country’s population but commit 9 percent of all the crimes. Nearly 15 percent of all suspects charged with rapes and sexual assaults come from this tiny group.
If Merkel wins the election on September 24, Germany can expect to see another wave of migrant influx, as many of these newly-arrived "refugees" would be eligible to invite their family members to the country.
