Ex-criminal policeman Josef Wilfling over crime in Germany
Josef Wilfling is former member of the Muncher’s murder commission and was among other things for the declaration of murders to Walter Sedlmayr and Rudolf Mooshammer. In his second book omely – why everyone can become a morder, he again shows the description of various murder trap again that the contaminated in the midst of society.
Mr. Wilfling, her book carries the subtitle "Why everyone can become the morder". Can you explore us? – And why will not everyone become the morder?
Josef Wilfling: The murder is in us all in it. Experience shows that strong negative emotions such as hatred, existence or greed are crucial here. But most people do not come in situations that the inner struggle between reason and these negative feelings that can take possession of a person possessing possessions, overhead. But there are also taders who do rationally?
Josef Wilfling: We distinguish between rational and emotional fans and motels. There is always a difference between the ice cold calculus and emotions like jealousy, hatred or envy. And there are, of course, deeds that exists an emotional background, but the tottion action is then meticulously planned, such as in the case of Marianne Bachmeier. This had prepared the shot of the morder of her daughter in the courtroom over weeks.
"Every murder has a history"
What are the common motives for murder?
Josef Wilfling: The most common murder motive are greed and property. When the possession is threatened, people will be dangerable. Often it is also the fear: existence, future fear and fear of leaving. Every week one reads from so-called family carriers, where father exploring their family. The Kraillinger double murder was such a case: the man threatened the bankruptcy, he needed urgent money and from these hits the murder was avoided. This creates most murders. This is just not registered in the media because fear is not worthwhile. Furthermore, there is still the so-called low path and hatred, jealousy and rich seasons in neighborhood wars, kinship wars and so on. Each murder has a prehistory and is usually the result of an ominous development: as if a storm breaks together and breaks out from a certain critical point. Many people take if they have problems, drugs and alcohol, many people expire in depression or loose their problems by suicide. And a small percentage of lost the problem by aggression, violence, murder. Not to mention is that some people tend to violence due to low education or character defects. What role does the SUF play?
Josef Wilfling: These are the manslaughters. Here the alcohol plays a very rough role. The alcohol is one of our main workers. Especially with raw violence, domestic violence and spontaneous violence: alcohol softening and in the corresponding state one tends to be violent. For the young mans, this is very strong in the foreground. If there was no alcohol, the police only had half as much work.
The motives have remained the same for such acts during their career?
Josef Wilfling: Yes. Since Adam and Eva the violence motifs have remained the same. There are also the seven years of death. In the old Romern it has already given the same crimes. Brutalatat and cruelty stuck in us all and are not time-bound. They are irrelevant influenced by outside. The most brutal murders were committed in the wealthy Munchen, by a police officer and a postman. Since themselves were the people in Colombia, where every day a murder happens, beat the hands in front of the face. This Bose is timeless and yet no murder is like the other. That’s why it’s so important to see where the act has taken its beginning.
"Alice Schwarzer probably saved more lives than she suspects himself"
What about the frequency of murders?
Josef Wilfling: The totungs offenses have fallen almost by half in the last 15 years in Germany. There is a whole bundle of causes: According to experts, the demographic factor plays a rough role, because the more young people there are, the more violence there is also. That’s a fact. Also, the role of women, ie the large sacrifice group, has changed strongly: the emancipation and self-confidence of women today is another one as a spring. You can keep from Alice Schwarzer what you want, but she probably saved more lives than she suspects himself. Today, there are also completely different help for women and there is a very different legal situation. Also, tolerance in society has increased at least in the sexual area: FRUHER were, for example, murders of homosexuals on the agenda. The decisive factor for the decline of the murder rate was, of course, the deterrence over a high declaration rate based on the DNA tests. The decline in the planned murdles has at the same time with the revenue of this new preliminary investigation. We were in Munchchen the first, which the so-called old trap thus systematically worked up and in the first year we were able to clear seven murders, which sometimes were back 30 years. The deterrent effect is very important. The reason why the number of traffic totes of 12.000 on 4.000 dead is, is that the penalties have been dramatically. This applies, for example, for the United States, where there is still the death penalty in many states?
Josef Wilfling: Even if I am an opponent of the death penalty: this is the same way. Take New York, which has been a criminal city. The consistent pursuit of minor dictations has reduced the crime ratio by more than half. How do you change yourself during the years?
Josef Wilfling: One will – if you were one – from the idealist – I was finally a 68er – to the realist. You can see things a lot of jewelter and becomes pragmatic. Nevertheless, I still have a positive man picture, because there is still much more donor than bosy people. I’ve just discovered that in my profession: where is much suffering, is always a lot of humanity. That will often look over. Nevertheless, you have to fight against the prejudices every day, which build up. That’s completely normal. Raymond Chandler once wrote that not so easy to raise goods, as the long and completely planned champion murder a la Agatha Christie, during the murders, of which the tatter 5 minutes before the act does not wife, that he becomes a murder to prepare real problems. That’s right with your experiences?
Josef Wilfling: He does not quite wrong. An American criminologist said: Who of a thousand mistakes that can be committed to a planned murder can only avoid fun fear, must be a genius. The more intelligent one stop and the meticulous one act is planned, the more mistakes are made. I have experienced myself that even the profanest and simply structured relationships were more difficult to clear than the planned, but you have to add that this always depends on the individual case. Also read thrillers? Which authors were the reality on the next?
Josef Wilfling: I like to read thrillers, but a real fan I am from Heidi Rehn’s historical crime novels. The writes very well and has always researched accordingly. You get a real insight into the time 150 years ago. She has written a big novel about the murder of a commercial retailer at the time of industrialization when the tailors were unemployed. Just lovely! Less I like to read mankell. I always ask myself if that is still proudly ticking. There is always the lonely Racher from Africa, because the coarse father of the sacrifice before three years ago had been Soldner and crimes committed. That’s all very unrealistic. How does it look like watching TV?
Josef Wilfling: Man is favorite and remains Colombo. Very realistic is shown here how the investigator is back, waiting and works with understatement. Whereby that’s not the whole realitat introduced. Good entertainment does not always have to do one to one with the realitat. On the other hand, the thriller is a suitable genre to provide man to the mirror, to show problem areas and to illuminate social border groups. Where the love novel enhanced, the thriller begins, as in real life too. Which social class maps the most: workers, burger or the nobility? Differ their crimes in motive and execution?
Josef Wilfling: There are no statistics about it. There are a great deal of poor people and medium-standers as people in Grunwald. Although we are more in the social underlayer tatig, but there are no differences here and all their subjects can be reached as well with multimillionars. Straight Munchen is pradestinated for that. Here we have a lot of totungs offenses in the upscale company: Sedlmayr, Mooshammer, a chief physician, a BMW manager etcera. The negative emotions, of which I talked about, can take overall and every person. Pastors have already morded. If you can give a suffocation, how many murders remain undetected?
Josef Wilfling: There is an investigation of the University of Munster that states that at least one unfounded on a discovered murder comes. It is treasured that 1000 to 1200 totia offenses are not recognized in terms of course. Some even reach high. I, on the other hand, illustrate only and do not participate in such speculation. But I have had a case with the Series Morder Horst David, who stood seven murders, with four not yet recognized as such. He has committed at least twice as many. There is probably a really high number of dark figures here. Speaking of undecided murders: You have paid that DNA analysis has been introduced in Munchchen. Have an opinion on the destruction of Asservates in the case Buback and also at the Oktoberfest assassination?
Josef Wilfling: At INS, the aservates were never destroyed in the unchecked fall. That we still had these aservates was our key to success with falls that were as I said for 30 years. If they are officially considered to be clarified, however, the statutory obligation is to destroy the aservates after a certain period. (Reinhard YellenTo)
