The double Seehofer : the fear talk, then you complain

A slight functional schizophrenia is part of the requirement profile of each of the patents, the Federal Minister of the interior. At least once a year, the ability to split personality is a virtue, namely, when it applies, the police crime statistics. In this Ritual, he must recite the two seemingly incompatible positions: on the one hand, the successes of the police to point out (and praise, ultimately, the private contribution to the security of the citizens). And on the other hand, to make the threat large enough to appear to for the security agencies more money and more skills demanding.

Horst Seehofer, who has the plan. As he presents on Tuesday, the crime statistics to 2018, it spreads the message: "Germany is one of the safest countries in the world." And then: to ensure success, it needs more equipment and more rights. to be able to

these two very different messages together, helped him, the "perceived safety" of the Germans, particularly the women. Also, if the number of recorded crime is, in fact, decreased, increased the feeling of insecurity of the citizens. This is from the "victimisation study", the BKA and the Ministry of the interior in collaboration with the Max-Planck-Institute for foreign and international criminal law have developed, and compares the sense of security of the citizens in the years 2012 and 2017 – and according to the migration crisis.

On Twitter and in the policy responses, the Trend went in a similar direction. Both the AfD as well as individual users have argued with your "feeling", in order to make the decline in crime as a whole – even those in which Non-German suspicion, are out of the question. Especially to serve the increased feeling of insecurity of women, their increased fear of sexual Assault had to (once again). This fear was highlighted by BKA President Holger Münch in the press conference- and thus the debate efficiently in a specific context.

rape is on the decline

in fact, the proportion of non-German suspects in the sex crimes, according to crime statistics, disproportionately high. The qualifying factors are, however, equally well-known: Young men are over-represented in this group, per se, often. Many immigrants in recent years were young men. Overall, the number of rapes in Germany continues to decline.

Since this is a favorite theme of the Right is now discussed far into the political centre, it would actually not be surprising if the sense of security of women had actually deteriorated in a sustainable way. "Above average" has increased the fear of women from sexual harassment, claiming Holger Münch.

The statistics are, however. The number of citizens who feel "somewhat unsafe" or "very unsafe" increased by five percentage points. The number of women who are afraid of sexual harassment, has increased by 1.6 percentage points. Furthermore, the majority of the women feel safe (77.8 percent).

With the perceived uncertainty of the citizens, a particular Narrative to maintain, is quite perfidious, or a particularly strange Form of the Minister of the interior's functional schizophrenia: Horst Seehofer, has strongly contributed to the development of fear-induced persuasion. Now he wants to use you politically. Worse, however, is this claim: the population was increasingly troubled, although not so much more is concerned, despite all the political Trials of the uncertainty – and then to make on the Basis of this supposedly rapidly increasing concern policy.
