According to Koschny's [head of the crime fighting unit at Berlin's Polizeidirektion 5] plans, the police will ask about their religious background as well and find out what mosque the parents attend for prayer. Those information will then be passed on to the imams and prayer leaders who are then supposed to influence the delinquents and there parents to explain to them that crimes are not compliant with Islam.I bet they do!
Also, Muslim youths who were sentenced to perform social work for charities affiliated to one of the churches but rather for the mosque communities. Thus, the prayer leader or imam will be able to exercise a long-term positive influence on the youths.
The Muslim organisations are said to meet the plans with decisive approval, Koschny says.
That way they get a free delivery of gifted amateurs who will soon learn to make better use of their talents than to grab mobile phones or designer rags from their shell-shocked classmates.
In English it's called "to put the fox in charge of the henhouse", but I like the German equivalent better, which calls this strange phenomenon of self-hate "to give the billy goat a gardener's job".
