Youth knifing spate alarms German police unions

A spree of fatal teenage knife attacks has prompted one of Germany’s police trade unions to urge parliamentarians to allow them to apply tougher homicide laws. The German Police Trade Union (DPoIG) said knife carriage — involving “noticeably” young migrants — should be prosecuted under attempted murder provisions in Germany, and urged government to compile statistics nationwide on knife incidents.
