Germany: Gang Rapes Hit Another Record High in 2022
John Cody, Remix, May 25, 2023
Gang rapes have hit another record high in Germany in 2022, reaching a pace of more than two a day in the country, according to data released by the government after a request for information from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
The data shows that the total number of gang rapes hit 789, higher than last year when the number hit 677 and the previous record high of 710 in 2019. In 2017, there were 380 gang rapes recorded, more than 50 percent fewer than recorded in 2022.
The data shows that exactly 50 percent of all gang rapes are committed by foreigners. However, as Remix News previously reported, individuals with a migration background, or even those with dual citizenship, who number nearly 4 million, are simply listed as “German.” As a result, it is unclear what percentage of these rapes were committed by ethnic Germans.
In a statement on the statistics published on Facebook, the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party writes: “The figures on the composition of the perpetrators are also clear and show that all claims that there is no connection between mass migration and the collapse of internal security are lies. There were 471 suspected perpetrators with a German passport compared to 472 foreigners – so around half of the perpetrators are foreigners, although their share of the total population is ‘only’ around 14 percent. However, the 50 percent does not include the number of German suspects with foreign origins! The main countries of origin of the foreign suspects were once again Syria and Afghanistan.”
The data shows the strongest increase in rapes coincided with Germany’s migrant population swelling due to the 2016 migrant crisis. That was the same year that the infamous sexual assaults took place in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, in which an estimated 1,049 women were sexually assaulted and sometimes gang raped by men from North Africa and the Middle East.
Many of the country’s most high-profile gang rapes have involved foreign men targeting German women.
“Emma S., for example, had to experience this firsthand in 2019. The then 15-year-old was lured into a bush on a September night and raped by 11 men. Arsen K. and Fares L. (then 19 and 20 years old) also filmed the crime,” wrote the German newspaper Junge Freiheit.
In 2020, 10 migrants raped an 18-year-old girl, and all were later convicted of the crime.
In other countries, the same trend can be seen. Two prominent Swedish academics were prosecuted for showing that migrants and foreigners were vastly overrepresented in sexual assault and rape statistics. Nearly all gang rapes in the country were committed by foreign men. As Remix News reported in an article on Denmark, which keeps the most accurate statistics on migrant crime in Western Europe, the numbers are astounding:
For example, for murder, non-European first-generation migrants are 279 percent more likely to commit murder, 464 percent more likely to commit rape, 220 percent more likely to commit assault, and 53 percent more likely to commit drug trafficking.
However, Denmark goes even further and analyzes second-generation non-European migrants as well, and that is where even more troubling statistics are revealed. While the assumption is that these children of migrants would be better integrated than their parents, the opposite is found.
For murder, this group is 850 percent overrepresented, with astounding figures also for assault (443 percent) and drug trafficking (304 percent). The only category where this group is lower is in regards to rape (158 percent).
“From the second generation, the descendants of non-European immigrants peak at +98% overrepresentation in the crimes committed. Danish figures show that the second generation of non-European immigrants is less integrated than the first, and has an 18% higher chance than their parents of being tried for a crime,” writes RAGE magazine.
In Italy, migrants are responsible for almost half of all rapes, and Austria has reported similar numbers as well.
