Berlin study reveals 92 percent of left-wing activists live with their parents

Official figures have revealed that the vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested for politically motivated violence in Berlin are young men who still live at home with their parents.

The data, compiled by Germany’s Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) and published by the tabloid Bild, was extracted from 873 suspects who were arrested during political demonstrations in Berlin between 2003 and 2013.

A little more than half (58 percent) of the arrests resulted from crimes which took place in the neighborhoods of Friedrichshain, Kruezberg, and Mitte.

Of the 873 suspects who were identified, 84 percent were men and 16 percent were women. 72 percent were between the ages of 18 and 29.
While 92 percent of the suspects reported still living with their parents, one in three reported being unemployed.

Figures showed that the vast majority (80 percent) of crimes that were committed against people targeted police officers, while most acts of violence carried out against property involved arson.
