The two videos below concern the recent gang-rape in the German city of Freiburg, where a young woman was (apparently) roofied and then gang-raped by culture-enrichers outside a nightclub.
The first video features a challenge issued by the mayor of another city to the mayor of Freiburg, demanding the latter’s support for a change in immigration policy. What makes it interesting is that the mayor issuing the challenge is actually a member of the Greens party.
The second video concerns a demonstration by the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) about what happened in Freiburg. Local authorities were forced to admit that the leading suspect in the rape had already been sought on an outstanding arrest warrant.
But more important than actually stopping further rapes is making sure that such crimes are not exploited “for political purposes”.

Video transcript #1:
|00:00||Following the rape of an 18-year-old in Freiburg, Boris Palmer, the mayor of|
|00:05||Tübinger, has now made a statement in which he challenges his fellow mayor,|
|00:09||Martin Horn in Freiburg, to support making a radical change in immigration policy.|
|00:15||In a Facebook post, the Green Party politician writes: “There should be a cutoff|
|00:20||for residency rights, and in the meantime, criminal refugees should be removed|
|00:24||from cities. Those refugees prone to violence and who refuse to integrate should be|
|00:28||housed outside the cities in regions without public transportation possibilities such|
|00:32||as bus or train connections,” according to Palmer. “It is my view that this extensive|
|00:37||withdrawal of freedom of movement would drastically reduce the serious crimes|
|00:41||committed by violence-prone refugees.” By “violence-prone” he means the seven Syrians|
|00:48||under suspicion, along with a German, for rape who are now in custody. On the night of|
|00:56||October 14th they are accused of raping an 18-year-old woman in front of a discotheque|
|01:02||in Freiburg. According to the current investigation, one of the men bought the|
|01:05||18-year-old a drink. The police suspect that the drink had been spiked with a liquid.|
|01:11||It is still unclear whether the liquid was “knock-out drops” or another type of drug.
Video transcript #2:
|00:00||“DEPORTATION! DEPORTATION!” — Freiburg, 6:30 P.M. Anger hangs in the air.|
|00:06||The AfD organised a demonstration attended by over 500 people. They are using the alleged|
|00:11||group rape as an occasion to demand the closure of the borders, contrary to the Federal government.|
|00:18||Those coming to us, allowed to enter the country without a passport, that is an absolute NO-GO.|
|00:23||Not just these rapes, but what is happening in general. —We are totally capable of deporting|
|00:27||these people or placing them in preventive detention or something. —In a counter-protest|
|00:33||against the AfD, there are 1,500 demonstrators. Some of whom repeatedly try|
|00:41||to block the AfD from marching. —I will certainly not stand up for any racists or fascists.|
|00:48||[Sign: I won’t let my anger, grief, shock be exploited!] Something shocking has happened,|
|00:52||really awful and I don’t want it to be politicised. —We just don’t want the bad incident to be|
|01:00||politicised by the AfD, and that’s why we’re here. —The demonstration is a reaction to|
|01:04||an alleged group rape that happened here two weeks ago.|
|01:09||A female student filed charges with the police. She was in this club and there she met a man.|
|01:15||After sharing a drink together, they left the discotheque together. The young woman was|
|01:22||raped by this man in a nearby thicket. This was followed by additional rapes.|
|01:30||A brutal group rape, which lasted for hours in these bushes. Eight suspects are in|
|01:35||custody. Seven Syrian refugees and one German. The police are still investigating|
|01:40||whether there may be further suspects.|
|01:44||This case is also mobilising the people of Freiburg, because the suspects were all known|
|01:50||criminals. Today the interior ministry in Stuttgart had to admit that|
|01:54||an open arrest warrant had been issued against one of the suspects, but had not been pursued|
|01:59||due to “tactical reasons”. The mood in Freiburg this evening was irreconcilable.|
|02:03||The organiser of the AfD demonstration, a member of parliament, even accuses the counter|
|02:08||protestors of being jointly responsible for the alleged group rape. —You have blood on your hands|
|02:13||and you helped rape her.|
|02:18||Freiburg is churning, but one thing is clear this evening numerically:|
|02:22||Those in the majority don’t want the crime used for political purposes.
