In the debate over the controversial concept of "tree search" in connection with the Stuttgart riots, Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Green) has defended the actions of the police. "I can see no wrongdoing of the police," said the head of government on Tuesday in Stuttgart. The wrong that is transported by the notion of a "completely poisoned the debate" had come. Also, the Federal government had criticized the term on Monday; it is "a historically loaded word".
It is important to know more about the alleged perpetrators of the Stuttgart riot night and also to learn about the circumstances of their lives – "without respect of persons," said Kretschmann on Tuesday. This is also not problematic, as long as you keep to the law.

The Green-councillor Marcel Roth had interpreted a Statement from the police chief on his Facebook page accordingly. According to the minutes of the meeting of the term had not been used.

Roth, however, remains in his criticism of the actions of the police: "It's about the thing, not the concept," he commented on Facebook.Updated Date: 14 July 2020, 10:19
