Violence against police officers: A question of belief

A picture says more than a thousand words. In this case, the influence of visual communication on the political mood of the Stuttgart city centre is. Countless people have seen the photos and Videos that show how a masked takes a run up and on the floor kneeling police officer with both legs from behind in the back jumps. This scene touches people much more than statistics.

also, the Figures speak a clear language. According to the Federal criminal police office every day in Germany, an average of 200 police officers, the victim of a Crime. The Numbers are on the rise. Before this Background, the Minister of the interior of the countries have been drawn in Erfurt, an increase in the penalties for violence against police officers into consideration.

The company must be clear about what it wants to muster to their defense, and what is not. Beuths Position, as it were, the DNA of the Hessian Union.
