Young male refugees in Germany got the blame on Wednesday for most of a two-year increase in violent crime, adding fuel to the country’s political debate over migrants.

Violent crime rose by about 10 percent in 2015 and 2016, a study showed. It attributed more than 90 percent of that to young male refugees.

So in the span of 6 months the MSN has switched from it's rising to it's really low after Trump says it's rising.

Is Reuters good enough?

Violent crime rises in Germany and is attributed to refugees



(Reuters) - Young male refugees in Germany got the blame on Wednesday for most of a two-year increase in violent crime, adding fuel to the country's political debate over migrants.

Violent crime rose by about 10 percent in 2015 and 2016, a study showed. It attributed more than 90 percent of that to young male refugees.


And from BBC in Jan of this year:




What figures did the report use?

The report used statistics from Lower Saxony - regarded as an average state - where police saw an increase of 10.4% in reported violent crimes in 2015 and 2016.

Based on figures from the state's interior ministry, which keeps a separate record of alleged crimes by migrants, the report suggested that 92.1% of this increase was attributable to migrants.

Lower Saxony has seen a significant increase in arrivals of migrants in recent years.

However, the researchers also said that a third of all victims of violent crimes by migrants were other migrants.

Here are some links, though they come to the opposite conclusion as the OP.


The German crime rate has fallen by five per cent since last year, hitting its lowest rate since 1992.

The new government figures show that 5.76 million crimes were reported in 2017. As a percentage of the population, crime is now at its lowest level for 30 years.

“Germany has become safer,” Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Tuesday, as the figures were released, but he warned “much remains to be done,” as 44 per cent of Germans said they felt less secure in Germany than they did a few years ago.

Crime rate in Germany at lowest level in 30 years, but antisemitism is on the rise


German newspaper Die Welt reports that recently published statistics for 2017 show that crime overall in Germany is at a record low - compared to 2016, the statistics demonstrate an overall decline of almost 10 %, the biggest in 25 years. The pessimistic predictions made by politicians who are opposed to receiving refugees, who have scared their constituents by predicting Germany would be devastated by crimes perpetrated by immigrants during the next few years, have apparently not come to pass.

Ge rmany: Crime rates lowest for 25 years, apocalyptic visions of immigrant crime seem to have been exaggerated

President Donald Trump says Germany’s official crime statistics are wrong: Crime in Germany is up a whopping 10 percent since the country implemented its open-door policy toward refugees, he tweeted Tuesday.

To be clear, as Vox’s Matt Yglesias pointed out Monday, Germany’s overall crime rate has fallen to its lowest level since 1992, according to recently released statistics from the country’s interior minister.

oh wow I'm surprised

NOT

merge a 3rd world muslim nation with a western country that half of it is far right

powder keg, bet there's a lot of people turning to the socialist/communist party in east Germany getting ready to kick some ass, and I don't blame them I say good

enough is enough with the far left destroying western civilization so they can "feel good"

oh and for all you liberal white women out there guess what, you are the target of the rapist and trust me when I tell you they want to rape white women because white men are "the evil men", not the Islamist people destroying their home country

Well President Trump told me crime went up in Germany. Is he a liar? No need to answer the question, we all know he is, even his followers. They won't admit it, but they know.

In other words, less jaywalking but more violence.

Don't you just love how statistics can be manipulated to hide uncomfortable truths?

Great another source pissing match...
So far it Reuters vs the independent and vox.

I realize we need to get info from somewhere. But do you all on the left not put credibility into the equation?

It's an article from 2018, and immigrants accounted for the increase. I can only post the information provided.

Crime == violent crime

Perhaps he meant the worst type of crime, the violent kind. Violence, directly attributed to migrants went up. Maybe overall crime is lower because the minor crimes can't get attention due to the increase in serious violent crimes.

I hear they cleaned up their act in the last couple years and are very sorry for 2015-2016.

people are more interested in defending their perspective at ALL cost no matter what it is before they will actually look at any data and seek the truth
