The head of Germany's second largest police union has responded to recent reports of anti-Semitism in the schoolyard by saying that authorities should be allowed to take children away from anti-Semitic parents.
"Authorities need to act decisively [against anti-Semitism] including when the aggression comes from migrants," Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union (DPolG) told the Augsburger Allgemeine on Wednesday.
"If children are raised to become anti-Semites we shouldn't be afraid to take them away from their families," he added.
DpolG is Germany's second largest police union with 94,000 members. Wendt, who has been head of the union since 2007, regularly makes headlines due to his hardline stance on criminality.
