Even the police seemed half-hearted in their calls for restraint in judging the motive of the crime, and the brief suspicion that the culprit had been someone close to the victim was quickly laid to rest. The unanimity of the official response, in one sense, was admirably forthright.
But it was also its own national admission of negligence. Tributes from local papers emphasize that he was widely liked and had good relationships with his constituents. Every German has that freedom.
The killing has provoked widespread condemnations of the ascendancy of right-wing terrorism in Germany; even traditionally conservative leaders such as Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer are now saying that they need to play catch-up in the fight against the far-right and have promised to devote increased resources to policing right-wing terrorists.
But critics say that the German state has a long history of ignoring reactionary terrorism.
Meanwhile, neofascistic terrorist attacks like the bombing of a Munich beer garden in have been largely forgotten. This blindness to right-wing terrorism is one of the reasons, Schultz told me, that it took authorities so long to recognize that the 10 murders carried out by the National Socialist Underground NSU beginning in were the work of a terrorist organization.

Though some activists are calling for a widespread crackdown on all forms of right-wing activity, others fear that broad approaches could serve to further radicalize right-wingers. When we spoke, Schultz, the journalism professor, suggested that a series of reeducation programs might be a positive step but feared that they would end up reaching the wrong people. If the CDU wishes to escape its fate, it will have to do more than simply root out extremist networks—it will need to find a way of redirecting the forces of right-wing anger.
German authorities looked the other way as a right-wing terrorist cell went on a seven-year killing spree.
