1. Shots fired at police officers
The convicted Wolfgang P. is considered a citizen of the Reich. They do not recognise the Federal Republic of Germany. The police officers are not considered civil servants either.
In October 2016, when the condemned man’s apartment was to be searched for weapons, the condemned Reich citizen shot the police officers through the door of his apartment. A young policeman was fatally injured and died shortly afterwards. Two other police officers were also injured. The convicted citizen of the Reich is said to have shot 11 times through his apartment door. The court assumed that he knew that police officers were trying to open his door at that moment. In its verdict, the Nuremberg Regional Court assumed that the Reich citizen was thereby trying to defend the autonomous state on his property that he had proclaimed himself. He is said to have assumed that the police officers had entered his “state territory” without justification and therefore felt entitled to attack them.
