Inhabitant Ramona Nomigkeit doesn't dare to leave her child (8) alone in front of the door any more: "The gangs of criminals spit on us, insult us and steal from us." Her neighbour Irene Boschen is afraid too: "They shout "Shit Germans" at us, and also hung up a sign between their apartment blocks that said "No way through for Germans".
Recently Radio Bremen broadcast a documentary about the city's "problem areas". Some members of a criminal gang called "Los Arabs" were interviewed":
The police have got nothing to say here. They might come past here with one or two crews. If they see one, two people they might stop. But when they see more than that, they don't dare. There's nothing else to do here. Either you build shit and when you work, you get no respect here. People laugh at you. Anyone that works here earns no money. One two, one three - what's he going to do with that. If you do break-ins, you make ten thousand, twenty thousand, thirty thousand - that's a lot better.Source: PI
