for foreigners that was all it took to trigger anti migrant protests men chasing down complete strangers who police say didn't look german well tonight federal police are on standby after two nights of violence from the chancellor to local lawmakers condemnation of street thug behavior and from right wing members of parliament calls for people to begin protecting themselves i'm bringing off in berlin this is the day. i. listen because alice sympathy and my sympathy goes out to the relatives of the victims. as a senator it's a terrible act the moves is all i think that's what we saw afterwards is something that has no place in a state under the rule of law i would have to what's being made of it on the back of the victims of this tasteless and disturbing element and it is not acceptable
2:03 am
that we see demonstrations being held and people that being attacked because they look foreign money and it must be said that the mobilisation on the internet is stronger than it is being in the past it's in the forgotten how to run on time to some of the calls now circulating on the internet are in our view based on false information on fake news of fake news. so coming up tonight will wars of the future be fought with lethal autonomous weapons at the un conference this week calls for a global ban to prevent the rise of the killer robots. who's accountable. when there's a violation of the laws of war who do we charge in order to see justice that is a huge issue. or we begin the day with german police bracing for another night of violence in the eastern part of the country yet after two nights of anti migrant protests triggered by
2:04 am
a stabbing death we know very little on sunday a german man was killed in a stabbing attack in the eastern city of commits two men a syrian and of iraqi are in police custody now police are under fire tonight for being unprepared for what happened next they say that six thousand far right supporters took to the streets in cabinets to protest the killing videos showed men chasing down complete strangers apparently because they looked for witnesses claim that police failed to intervene even when they saw people performing the hitler salute which is illegal in germany well there has been widespread condemnation of this zena phobic violence from the chancellor to local lawmakers the far right party the a.f.d. accused of advocating vigilante justice and tapping into frustration with police one member of parliament has used social media calling on people to start defending themselves. violence and unrest as protests as in can it's faced off on the one
2:05 am
side groups who claim the city for themselves saying candidates does not belong to foreign us on the other side counter-demonstrators saying they want the city to stand for openness the german government has been following the events in cannes that's chancellor angela merkel condemned the unrest busted enough because in what we saw there has no place in a country where the rule of law prevails we have video footage of people being hunted down and the gangs of rioters hatred on the streets i cannot stress enough that this is incompatible with the rule of law is going to fuel the kef to get the protests in cabinets erupted over the fatal stabbing of a thirty five year old german man on sunday during a street festival police identified two suspects in the stabbing one man from iraq another from syria authorities have provided little information on the altercation that led to the stabbing but what is known about the case along with rumors
2:06 am
circulated online have inflame tensions in cabinets. zero dark. thirty get out of a city they chant social media posts include videos depicting what appear to be vigilante attacks on people believed to be foreigners participants in the rightwing demonstrations say their anger by crimes in the city but also at how the media presents what's happening on every evening this trouble encounters between groups i don't want to say it's only the foreigners over this plenty of troublemakers. if you want to go on you can't go into the city without being scared of what might happen. i wouldn't call myself part of the mob and i don't want anybody calling me that just because i'm standing here. politicians continue to warn against vigilante justice yet following two days of violence chemists and the state of sex any remain on edge. why are we seeing. is violence insane
2:07 am
a phobia of it or ponselle it is a professor at dresden technical university specializes in populist movements in eastern germany he joins me tonight from dresden professor part of it's good to have you on the program eastern germany has the smallest numbers of migrants in foreigners than any region of the country yet it is a hotbed for right wing extremism and zina phobia why well there is a quite easily understandable reason for that seat with germany increased its percentage of foreigners in the country from ciro after the to something like twenty eight to twenty five per cent in a number of tea cakes that is slowly in east germany the percentage increase during the last five six seven years from zero to something close to ten percent so the dynamics between migration much higher in east germany then invest and so if the
2:08 am
reaction of the society against immigration which a significant minority of the people here doesn't want to have there's an interesting observation when it has to do really with numbers i'd like to point out something that happened last week in eastern germany a t.v. news crew trying to cover a right so far right demonstration was detained by police for about an hour now this video that we're watching has been released and it shows a member of a far right group. confronting the journalist where it turns out that man is an employee of the state criminal police department now there are demands for an investigation into this how serious is the danger in germany of the far right infiltrating the police. there is without any doubt a significant percentage of police people who sympathize with. movement
2:09 am
with the f.t.c. because they feel being left alone by politics because the number of policemen has been cut down significantly during the last years such that the verdict load imposed on the signal policeman is much higher than it ever was and police experiences on the street that there are hate it nearly hate it by leftists whereas if they protect demonstrations of rightwing demonstrators they're wellcome and people are grateful to them and this without any doubt is not without results in how policeman perceive about the political situation but it would be highly exaggerated to say well there is infiltration of the police by right wing extremists this is not the case but the sympathy is clearly not on the left side as
2:10 am
forest policemen are conserved in germany. and since you have said you fear that kim is just the beginning what do you mean by that. see the political elites the intellect and the leads in germany comes from germany into a multi-ethnic and multicultural society which has been happening in west germany for many decades such that such as a society is something quite common in many cities and parts of this germany but the transformation of a society so far not being multi-ethnic and multicultural into such a society is a process which will not go on without any conflicts any struggles input to couldn't not if the east german society which strongly dislikes being similar to some problematic areas invest seventy if this society reacts and even revolt
2:11 am
against this transformation and this is why i feel that my best educated guess is that such clashes streets in particular it is challenge that it will be able in the future israel what developed calls that we have been seeing from the the far right political party the a.f.d. member of the a.f.p. that is in the parliament here in berlin using social media and telling people to begin protecting themselves that's a call for vigilante justice how in the world should the government or the police for that matter respond to that. well it must be clear that the men are probably. legitimately accepting power and even power against citizens rests with the state with the police and there is
2:12 am
no right to without guns own discretion and they always not even need for that because usually there is safety all around germany and of course many people get the feeling that the safety situation has deteriorated but it's simply not the case that it will be necessary to step in for the state of the police and this must be made clear and it come to make clear often enough professor venter ponselle joining us tonight reprieve for your insights and your time professor thank you. artificial intelligence it is considered the next frontier in high tech and its promises seem endless facebook uses a i just spawn to remove heat speech medical doctors say that can reduce the chance of a wrong diagnosis and what about ai and the military at the u.n. conference this week in geneva switzerland there are loud calls for
2:13 am
a global ban on lethal autonomous weapons including robots which need no human oversight to search and kill. germany's armed forces already make use of semi autonomous weapons this add offenses to can seek out targets on its own. for now soja still have to give the order to fire but fully autonomous weapons are being developed they can select and attack targets without humans at the controls. the highly controversial supporters say the new weapons are needed in modern warfare and will help people make ethically responsible decisions. warfare is becoming so fast right now that human beings are not capable of making intelligent informed decisions like they could in the past shouldn't have voiced concerns that autonomous weapons could diminish human responsibility in war we don't want to have
2:14 am
happen is robotic system isn't out there causes some kind of mass casualty event and we know humans have all. these activists in berlin are protesting against autonomous weapons they want the german government to campaign for them to be banned worldwide. what's dangerous about artificial intelligence and robotics is that they're altogether removed from human decision making about good and evil about what's useful for people and what's not about a concrete situation human intelligence is still required for that. an international ban on autonomous weapons systems would only be possible with the unanimous support of the united nations but with the u.s. and russia both opposed that's highly unlikely. and joining me tonight is no one sharkey he's a professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at the university of sheffield
2:15 am
in the u.k. he joins me via skype tonight from geneva switzerland where he's attending that you in conference mr sharkey it's good to have you on the show let me ask you about this current is under way right now the u.s. china and russia it doesn't look like they are going to sign on to any ban so is it even worth talking about. that's not true what you just sat china have said while the provisional thomas weapons they sent it all and they said it again this week we have twenty six nations who have signed on for prohibition and tomorrow there will be various statements to show movies supports what will be here for five years and it's been a long slow struggle and it's becoming coming to fruition we could really do with germany being on site though because you're coalition government twice in two elections have said they would. thomas weapons there's been a parliamentary questioning recently and germany has made it very clear that they
2:16 am
will never use a thomas weapons systems and that the don't want ever developed them but their idea is to go for a political declaration at the u.n. and i don't like that and why use that mr sharp do you think a political declaration does that have less teeth there outright ban would have. yes it is not really it's if they're working with frons and in france as late the a is that we just need a political declaration and it should stop there whereas germany says that a political director. critical tonight can say that we're not raising a consideration of race and yes it should be an intermediate step towards the plan so this difference there and we don't know whether to be able to resolve that difference in time but we're hoping that by the end of this week we will get a new man the it's for next year to start negotiating
2:17 am
a new international law and what the international law will be. i don't know who will be there wishing are to get a complete who have vision and this not that we want a prohibition of the weapon it's what we're asking for is that all weapons should have meaningful suman control that seems reasonable and let's assume that a prohibition of some sort is you know is realized there isn't it similar to what was done with chemical weapons in the last century you also have somewhat of a global ban on that and yet as we've seen for example in syria chemical weapons are still used is that the same type of future we're going to be looking at with these killer robots. well of course i mean you can't stop anyone from using them but what happens is the international community turns on them and statement i says that the international community have not been happy with what happened to syria at
2:18 am
all and they will they you know they're putting strong sanctions on russia as well you know the old turn to visit you don't have a lot you let it live for it let's non-serious start until everyone has it and it's totally legal it's you draw all straight line not many people will use and you'll get the all of our person but they won't be able to do it for long and that's why it's important the law isn't perfect with regard to let me just ask you before we run out of time here where are we in terms of technology do we how close are we to seeing killer robots being that ready you know to hit the battlefields and to be mass produced were extremely close russia's working very hard at the united states of prototypes of fighter jets forms of lots of planes submarines and battleships so it's moving very quickly china also quite a few weapons and israel israel's another big maker so i'm u.k.
2:19 am
. so this could be the for the role that tomorrow things needed but of course they wouldn't be very compliant with the laws of war and that's one of the trouble i don't think they will ever be really compliant with the laws of war and be able to reliably discriminate between military and civilian targets but if we weren't too worried about that when those numbers situations fall of the state that to be here tomorrow those arche joining us tonight from geneva switzerland mr shortly we certainly appreciate your time and your insights tonight thank you. and. today thirty years ago a crowd of more than three hundred thousand gathered at the u.s. military base in ramstein germany to watch an air show the base usually off limits to the public on that day was covered in picnic blankets and families enjoying the show the high point a performance by the italian military team a performance that we know went horribly wrong a midair collision sent
2:20 am
a jet crashing into the crowd killing dozens of people on today's survivors and relatives of those who died held a memorial service in ramstein three decades on many still live with the physical and emotional scars of that tragedy. huge crowds had got that at ramstein for a display of precision flying instead. of three. jets collided and crashed into the ground one directly into the spectator seventy people died including the pilots. ramstein thrown into chaos there was no emergency plan no coordination between german and u.s. forces to help the more than a thousand injured. thirty years later the victims' families and
2:21 am
survivors are still remembering the tragedy. of it lost a son mario he dreamed of becoming a pilot himself each. everything to keep my son mario's memory alive as long as i live. mocked up he dion was four years old when the inferno took his father's life the ball of flames left him with severe burns and yet he sees it positive. after the ramstein air disaster they learned a lot about such events and how to better organize them in the future and ensure everyone's safety is a given. at the memorial seventy candles were lit for the victims with one large contract for those who later succumbed to their injuries. in his death just as in his life u.s. senator john mccain is uniting democrats and republicans they are eulogizing mccain as a statesman and a politician mccain represented the state of arizona in the u.s.
2:22 am
senate for thirty one years the republican was known for his fierce independence and for reaching across the political divide but with mccain gone arizona may soon be represented by a very different type of politician. a veteran stands watch at a local more tree in phoenix where john mccain's body is being held before the public feeling on wednesday many hours owners have already visited this makeshift memorial to pay tribute to the late senator. but one of the things that i admired the most going about him was his drive that people lived on something and it wasn't being done even though he got mad about it. he stood his ground pretty distressed as he was easy to get along with says tommy espinosa. the latino advocate in the senate who were close friends for over thirty j. is obviously younger my so close that mccain asked espinosa to be
2:23 am
a key player in his senatorial campaigns. john i said you know i'm a democrat so i'm not sure it's going to get you any votes you know and he said i don't care you're my friend i want you to be my co-chair but i said well let me sleep on it because no i want to has sir yes or no that. yes. espinosa says he wants to attend every single ceremony in honor of the senator who will first lie in state at the arizona state capitol. arizona is one of its most influential politicians on the national stage john mccain was one of the last republicans standing up to president struck he believed in bipartisanship at home and strong alliances overseas but it seems that. death his brand of conservatism is losing out that republican party is increasingly taken over by the president's rental divisiveness and isolationism the one man who typifies that
2:24 am
divisiveness is joe arpaio he's one of the three candidates running in the republican primary for arizona's second senate seat which will be up for grabs in the november midterm elections the former sheriff and controversial immigration hardline support strong one hundred percent a lot of people. maybe would never. or a no controversy a lot of controversy want to. help the president were before. standard politics. republican candidates in arizona have embraced trump and distanced themselves from mccain his life will be honored over the next days but his party seems to have moved away from his ideals. and thousands of devoted fans are lining up in detroit michigan to pay their last respects to the
