The Case of Maria L.

On the 17th of October 2016, 19-years old Maria L. was found dead near a river in the german city of Freiburg, as a victim of rape and drowning. A special commission was created, which found several traces of hair and DNA at the crime scene, with which a 17-years old Afghan refugee could be traced and apprehended. One year ago, he entered Germany as an unattended refugee und was adopted by a local german family. The circumstances of this murder make this case a prime example of the desastrous german politics, the misguided mentality of left-liberal humans and the obvious attempts of manipulation from the media.

Crime scene Freiburg

Freiburg, a moderately-sized city in Baden-Württemberg, already was the stage of several criminal incidents in the last months, in which refugees and migrants were involved. Just recently, roughly 19 miles away from it, another young woman was raped and killed in November. Despite several leads and a high bounty for any further hints on the case, no suspect nor  a clear connection between both murders could be found. Meanwhile, the place of Maria L.s death was already a crime scene for several other assaults and cases of sexual harassment of teenage girls by various migrant groups.

Did perpetrator and victim knew each other?

It is still uncertain if Maria L. knew her murderer beforehand, or if he assaulted her arbitrarily; if he had a accomplice, or did it on his own. What is known is, that she was part of a group from the local university, which helped and worked with refugees.

It is also known, that several asylum centers are located in the direct vicinity of the crime scene.

The question of „Did they know each other?“ becomes relevant when considering the various circumstances, under which this gruesome deed could happen, and how it was handled by the public. The father of Maria is a high-ranking official in the European Union and directly working in Brussels. In the obituary of her death, it is asked, instead of bringing flowers, to donate to a church in Bangladesh or to Weitblick Freiburg e.V., an organization that is actively trying to prevent legal deportations.

Twisted sympathy

This warped perception of victim and perpetrator, as well as the naive and ignorant perspective regarding a blatantly obvious conflict – one just has to look on the recent crime statistics from the responsible ministry – fuels these conditions and actions in many cases, and enables them in the first case. In the end, it is mostly the weak and innocent, children and young women, who have to suffer under this mentality. Not only physically, as victims of outrages, but mentally as well, by forcing the politically correct group-think upon them through the political and medial paragon, and by this leading them into these situations of helplessness, before twisting their fate, burdened upon them through sheer naivety, into the role of a offender, not a victim.

A similiar, appalling case happened in Freiburg as well: A young woman barely avoids the same end that befell Maria L. at the hands of a migrant. But instead of naming the obvious problem and reporting it to the police, she uses this incident to publicly denounce discrimination against the same people who nearly robbed, raped or murdered her. Instead of directing the outrage against the lack of security or the politics that lead to such wide-spread incidents, she blames the owners of Freiburg’s night clubs of ostracizing blacks – even if they had all the reason to take such measures. The local media and the mayor of Freiburg both try to ride this wave of blind relativization, calling it an isolated case.

The cognitive dissonance of the people whose idealized – and idolized – world view, that is being preached by politicians and the media all the same, comes into hard contact with reality, goes to such lengths, that not even death could deter them from rethinking it. Proof of this was given by a young politician of Die Linke – The Left – in the beginning of 2016. After being gang-raped by multiple migrants, not only did she initially try to blame ethnic germans for the crime, but she also continued to publicly apologize to her attackers on Facebook, stating that: „I am really sorry that your sexist and line-crossing treatment of me could help fuel aggressive racism.“ It seems only natural that the father of the deceased Maria L. is victim of the same mentality, since the EU for which he works could be considered as the general driving force of collective tolerance.

Medial reactions

The duty of the media seemed clear from there on out. Although the crime and it’s investigation found attention in many news papers and online media, there still were quite a few representatives of the profession, who tried to cloak themselves in silence about the whole case. Accidentally, they were to be found on mostly left-leaning positions – or at the state-sponsored television. Die Zeit released no report at all and even started deleting references to the case in the commentary section of other articles. Instead, they focussed on the acclaimed cooperation of policemen and right-wing radicals in Saxony.

Michael Friedmann, anchorman of the news station N24, said, that germans need to be integrated as well.

Die Tagesschau – paid by taxes – tried to explain the fact, that they refused reporting on this case at all, by saying that it was only a case of „local relevance“. Which clearly wasn’t the case, as shown by many international reports.

Furthermore, the major austrian networks, who most of the time tend to report on such events more frequently and accurate than the german media, even if they do happen in Germany, mostly ignored the case as well, since it’s development took place only days before the austrian presidential election. Naturally, there was no intent to unsettle the voters, who had to decide between a critic of the EU and the migration politics of their neighbor, and a left-leaning, green globalist.

A short time after the succesful investigation and the capture of the alleged murderer, a number of politicians and media outlets talked themselves into a raging fit, insulting critics, defending traumatized refugees, who are just as peaceful or violent as every other german, or warning against prejudices and racism.

In the end, it became known that the murderer of Maria L. was already convicted – as he nearly killed another woman three years before in Greece, pushing her off a cliff. The bitter irony only festers at this point: Already in 2013, he claimed to be 17 years old. He got sentenced to ten years of prison for this and got released only 18 months later, as a consequence for Greece’s overfilled prisons, and entered Germany in late 2015 – still as a 17-years old, without any notice from greek officials.

No answers from politicians are to be expected.
