But study on racism in the police
For weeks politicians have been arguing about whether the security authorities in Germany should be checked for racism. Now one seems to have agreed on a way. © Reuters / H.

As if that weren't bad enough, Dirk-Martin Christian, head of the protection of the constitution, deceived the public last Thursday when he suggested during a press conference that his officials were close to the Islamist on the day of the crime. On Monday, Christian regretted giving the wrong impression.
"Irresponsible, presumptuous, insolent!" Tim Mälzer talks to "Markus Lanz" in Rage
© ZDF / Screenshot Tim Mälzer showed no understanding for the inconsiderate behavior of a club operator in Hamburg: "I think that this is an absolute impudence and outrage." For almost a week, there has been a curfew for restaurants in some federal states. Tim Mälzer explained in the ZDF talk "Markus Lanz" how hard the regulation hits him and why he is examining legal means against it. With a look at the black sheep in his industry, the TV chef was enraged.
The interior minister of the Free State, the Christian Democrat Roland Wöller, is politically responsible for this. In view of the mishaps in his own house, the fact that he called for the ban on deportation for Syrians to be relaxed and for dangerous and serious criminals to be brought back to the civil war country after the attack seems like a diversionary maneuver.
Opinion: The high hurdles of the rule of law

In June, Wöller threw out the head of the intelligence service at the time, Gordian Meyer-Plath. The experienced constitutional protection officer, who is valued in security circles, was deported to the Ministry of Science, Culture and Tourism. A humiliation. Experts on right-wing extremism also had to leave.
Saxon Office for the Protection of the Constitution under pressure: Assassin from Dresden was not observed enough
Although Abdullah Al H. H. was known to be dangerous, there was no intensive surveillance after his detention.

here for Apple and AndroidWöller accused Meyer-Plath of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution illegally stored data from AfD MPs. But at the beginning of October,
Saxony's data protection officer Andreas Schurig contradicted the minister.The procedure of the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution was "basically in line with the requirements of the Federal Constitutional Court on the observation of MPs," said Schurig after examining the allegations against Meyer-Plath. Wöller remained stubborn. The ministry announced that the storage of MPs' data did not meet the legal requirements. The 50-year-old Wöller, who comes from Duisburg, likes to be the tough security politician. In the black-green-red government of Michael Kretschmer, he apparently has the role of slowing down the AfD's law-and-order agitation. It's getting harder. The AfD sees the case of Abdullah Al H. H. as a “comprehensive failure of the government and especially the interior minister”.
