Germany: Afghan Migrant Who Stabbed Aid Worker Six Times Goes Free, May Be 'Entitled to Compensation'

When your country’s justice system becomes afraid of convicting actual criminals for fear of social justice repercussions, don’t be surprised when lawlessness reigns supreme. Regardless of what race a criminal suspect might be, the laws on the books are there to prosecute anyone for a possible wrongdoing.

A 20-year-old refugee aid worker, only identified as “Jose M.,” was stabbed six times last May by an Afghan migrant, identified as “Seyed M.”

According to the Daily Mail:

Jose M. was knifed six times - including once in the heart - with the knife the defendant kept hidden in his clothing.

Jose had confronted Seyed M. after the Afghan reportedly became obsessed with a female friend of the victim, and constantly stalked her despite her pleas to be left alone.

The Afghan was already facing deportation proceedings when he bumped into Jose in the park while carrying a five-and-a-half inch kitchen knife.

Seyed M. was acquitted of the charges against him, because the judge claims that he was acting in self-defense. Why would the judge make that ruling? Because Jose M. was larger than Seyed is, Jose had boxing training and he reportedly punched Seyed first.

And because of all that, a murderer is walking the streets in Germany. How do we know whether Jose actually punched Seyed first? I mean, we can't ask Jose. We can only take the word of someone who stabbed another person six times because he might've been punched. And let's not forget why Jose may have punched Seyed. Seyed was reportedly harassing and stalking a girl that rebuffed his advances.

A point that literally no one is talking is the fact that German law dictates that a “fixed knife with a blade length above 12 cm” is “forbidden," according to Germany's Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection. Twelve centimeters comes out to 4.7 inches. If you remember from the Daily Mail passage above, Seyed was said to be “carrying a five-and-a-half inch kitchen knife.”

So, does the fact that Seyed was carrying an illegal knife make a difference? Apparently not.

The “self-defense” decision that judges ruled Seyed acted in opens up the perpetrator for “compensation for time spent in prison.”

It’s become a sad state of affairs for people in European Union (EU) countries. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has put the needs of migrants and the EU ahead of the needs of her own people. Being humanitarian is a worthwhile endeavor. There are people who truly need help. But, you don’t sacrifice your country in favor of looking “tolerant” to the rest of the world.
