Not only are knife-related crimes surging, but the perpetrators and victims
of such crimes are increasingly younger and increasingly female.
Germany's knife-crime problem is being exacerbated by its lenient judicial
system, in which offenders receive relatively light sentences, even for
serious crimes. In many instances, individuals who are arrested for
knife-related crimes are released after questioning from police. This
practice allows criminal suspects to continue committing crimes with virtual
More than 1,600 knife-related crimes were reported in Germany during just
the first five months of 2017 — an average of 300 such crimes each month, or
ten a day.
A Syrian migrant was stabbed to death in northern Germany by another Syrian
because he was eating ice cream during Ramadan. The murder — which occurred
in broad daylight in a busy pedestrian shopping area in Oldenburg and caused
great consternation among local citizens — is not just the latest example of
Sharia law being enforced on German streets. The crime also highlighted the
growing epidemic of knife violence in Germany.
Knives, axes and machetes have become weapons of choice for criminals in
Germany, which has some of the strictest gun laws in Europe. Knives are not
only being used to carry out jihadist attacks, but increasingly to commit
homicides, robberies, home invasions, sexual assaults, honor killings and
many other kinds of violent crime.
