A German police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, recently told the media that law enforcement officers cannot efficiently do their jobs when it comes to refugees in the country.

According to RT.com, the officer said law enforcement officers are unable to properly do their job because they get accused of racism or using excessive violence when they investigate crimes committed by refugees.

The officer also said a lot of incidents are not reported by authorities who are trying to maintain favorable statistics.

The officer, who is referred to as Bernd K, worked for six months at the Munich train station. He shared some of his experiences with Bild newspaper.

“At first, mostly families with children – who looked educated and spoke English – were coming here,” the officer said. “Meanwhile, 95 percent of refugees are now single men.”

Bernd K also talked about how crime scene reports were changed.

“One asylum seeker wanted to cut his fellow’s throat. But the crime scene report included only severe injuries rather than murder attempt. This looks better for the statistics,” the officer explained.

Bernd K told the newspaper that he believes that the crime rate among refugees far exceeds that of the local population.

“For the last couple of months, I had only one criminal charge against a German, the rest were only refugees.”

When asked about the sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, the officer said he witnessed similar situations when he worked at the Munich train station.

“At the train station, women are sexually harassed and offended on regular basis. When we speak of an entry ban [to the area], they would shout on us: ‘You are not my police. You are a racist’.”

Bernd K said law enforcement officers have their hands tied behind their backs because they cannot arrest refugees due to orders from their superiors.

“Our domestic rule is – better to let him run away.”

Bernd K believes that German law enforcement authorities need to increase the number of officers on the streets, impose stricter laws on criminals, and avoid being used to further a political agenda.
