German court says "Nein!" to fighting terrorism

In a recent ruling, the German Federal Constitution Court in Karlsruhe said it's unconstitutional to use database searches as a means of identifying potential terror suspects. According to Konrad Freiberg, head of the GdP police union:
"This robs us of a means to prevent terrorist preparations in their earliest stages."

"We cannot understand why the courts keep putting more and more limits on the ability of security forces to take action to protect the public from catastrophic attacks."
