After a series of increasingly violent encounters between German authorities and Reichsbürger, a group that rejects the legitimacy of the German government, officials are concerned that they are radicalizing -- and turning from a nuisance into a threat.

[The Reichsbürger movement promotes the idea that all German governments since the election of Adolf Hitler as chancellor have been illegitimate, and therefore the movement does not recognize the authority of the state - and its police officers].
