A new study has found that the vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested in Berlin, Germany in recent years live at home with their parents.

Ninety-two percent of demonstrators arrested for politically-related protests between 2003 and 2013 were found to still be living with their parents, and a third of them were unemployed, according to a report published in the German newspaper Bild that was flagged Tuesday by the Daily Mail.

The study was conducted from 2003 to 2013 and based on 873 arrestees from that period. The statistics came from the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.

Additionally, 72 percent of those arrested were between the ages of 18 and 29, while 84 percent of the total were men.

In 15 percent of the cases, the victims of the protesters were right-wing activists. Approximately 80 percent of the victims were police officers.

A harrowing revelation from the report says that between 2009 and 2013, left-wing activists attempted to commit 11 assassinations.
