Appearing to support government plans to change the law to allow increased video surveillance, 73 percent of Germans polled supported the idea of having larger police forces.
The YouGov survey for the German news agency dpa was carried out days after Tunisian national Anis Amri plowed a truck into a Christmas market, killing 12 people and wounding nearly 50 others. Amri, who was the prime suspect, was shot dead after fleeing to Italy. [ ]

Find a bunch of box cars. Load them up with mooselimbs and lock the doors. Send them to Turkey. If some of them make it there, fine, unload, then repeat until the problem is solved.
This yougov poll is idiotic. Of course they prefer more security after the country has been flooded with Barbarians
More police? Really? Police get there after casualties have already occurred. Germany and USA need universal open and concealed carry rights.
Merkel responds by sending out engraved invitations to terrorists.
