"Comparable incidents in other federal states raise the suspicion that few right-wing extremist police officers network nationwide and use the police infrastructure strategically for their goals," said Green politician Irene Mihalic of the "Rheinische Post" (Thursday edition). Other, not yet known structures would also have to be considered.
Now deploying many investigators in NRW is correct and consistent, so Mihalic. North Rhine-Westphalia Interior Minister Herbert Reul (CDU) must be asked whether he has taken the problem of right-wing extremist structures in the police seriously enough. "We are still following the logic of the increasing number of individual cases, instead of understanding and tackling the problem more fundamentally," criticized the Green politician.
