FOCUS Online Mr. Long, the horror is over, the images from Berlin to the mass demo against corona limitations without compliance with the clearance and respiratory protection regulations. Keep those Demos in Dortmund for possible?

Gregory Long With a view to the Demonstration in Berlin, I feel confirmed me in retrospect, in my appeal.

FOCUS Online Shortly before the Demo, you have appealed to the reason of the German population that in the case of excesses on a small scale, such as occur in Dortmund and other cities, urgent needs to be managed. You can turn to us, two specific example?

the police headquarters in Dortmund Dortmund police President Gregory Long.

Long: a few days Ago several strip cars are driven to the use at a wedding. The Ceremony took place in the Dortmunder City, where, increasingly, new infections occur. 80 guests were still largely in the respiratory and distance requirements. The officials have a very aggressive mood of the guests was, as the revellers were asked to keep to the rules. This Refusal to oppose the orders of the police officers is very, very dangerous, because in the end, we run the risk of so that there could be, for example, school closures, and parents can't do their work. To do so, is selfish and irresponsible. In the end it turned out OK, because it is the officials managed to de-escalate the situation with words. But that is, unfortunately, not always so.

FOCUS Online : Where'd it go wrong?

Long: at the end of June, several strips were at a Rave Party has been called for disturbing the peace. This was at a time when it was in NRW, yet was not allowed, with people from more than two households together to stop. But not just that, however, had been in breach: The Party took place in a closed room, the celebrants wore neither protective masks nor do they abide by the distance rules. When the officers intervened to end the illegal Party, was pepper spray used against the police officer, and a colleague was injured. And, of all things, from Ravers, to celebrate in the normally completely peaceful. This has us very surprised, this is completely new. Of course, it is understand that people, especially the younger ones, to their normal everyday lives as it was before the pandemic, to return. And we also want to be killjoys, this is really completely remote. But the pandemic is not yet over, the danger is real. This behavior is disrespectful and very dangerous in terms of health, not least of all the police officers in relation to.

FOCUS Online In the policy is now being hotly debated about violations of the corona rules sanction with fines increased to. It would make your work easier – the way it is, for example, in the case of traffic violations the case?

Long: The comparison with breaches of the road traffic regulations lagging – and mainly for two reasons. First, in Spite of high fines, many motorists do not keep this, to keep to the rules. And secondly, the danger of breaches of the hygiene rules in the corona of a pandemic is much greater. Because it is always immediately to the health, the lives of the people.

FOCUS Online But the number of corona violations alone, in the territory of the police headquarters in Dortmund is, however, significantly decreased after the introduction of the "corona nodule", the violations with a fine of 200 Euro ahndeten.

Long: in regards to the Numbers, is that correct. We had from mid-March until the end of April 1700 inserts with a corona of reference, in July, there were as yet only nine, with a total of 14 violations. But this is mainly due to the fact that, in the meantime, a lot more things are allowed again, as it was in the early spring of the case. I appeal especially to the good sense of the people, to understand now that we are at the current increase in the infection numbers at a crossroads. No one can want to have a second wave, therefore, the corona must be observed rules – in the case of small parties, as in the case of large demonstrations. What relates to the introduction of stricter fines, the police are the wrong contact person – the need to define the policy. We ensure that the prohibitions are adhered to.
