Kusel – The Prime Minister of Rhineland-Palatinate, Malu Dreyer, sharply condemned malicious comments on the Internet after two young police officers were shot dead.

The two police officers – a 29-year-old chief inspector and his 24-year-old colleague, a police candidate – were shot dead early Monday morning during a traffic check just a few kilometers from Kusel. Two 32 and 38-year-old men who were arrested on the same day and are now in custody are under strong suspicion.

Not just delete

Dreyer continued on Friday with a view to comments on the Internet: “It’s just inhuman and bad.” The authorities would not tolerate insults or threats – and not only delete them, but pursue and punish them.

Interior Minister Lewentz said that on Friday night there had already been an access in the Idar-Oberstein area. “There, a person had called online to lure police officers onto dirt roads and shoot them there,” he said. The apartment was opened and the person was overwhelmed. The state does not accept such calls. “The process is ongoing,” said Lewentz. dpa
