It looks like despite liberals insisting on political correctness, the instigators in the horrific New Year’s Eve rape mob were refugees.
From the Washington Post:
At least 21 asylum seekers from the Middle East and North Africa are suspects in a New Year’s Eve rampage of sexual assaults and thefts in the German city of Cologne, authorities said, even as word emerged of similar acts in Finland, Sweden and other German cities — including the alleged gang rape of two teenage girls by four Syrian men.
Thus far, reports of violence and criminality tied to asylum seekers or refugees have emerged from Helsinki; Kalmar, Sweden; Hamburg and Stuttgart. No single city was hit harder than Cologne — where gangs of mostly young men are alleged to have “hunted” women, corralling them before groping, assaulting and robbing them. So far, at least 170 victims have filed complaints, including 120 reports of sexual assault.
Two suspects — aged 16 and 23 and of North African origin — were arrested early Friday but were later released due to lack of evidence, according to authorities in Cologne.
But a spokesman for the German federal police said at least 34 suspects have been identified in the Cologne attacks and that authorities were still seeking evidence from witnesses to pursue arrests.
Out of the 34, 21 were asylum seekers — and the majority of those, police said, had arrived last year. The 34 suspects included 10 Algerians, 10 Moroccans, five Iranians, four Syrians, two Germans, one American, one Serbian and one Iraqi.
I’m not sure why an American is asking Germany for asylum, but whatever. Opponents of Muslim resettlement are seizing upon this episode to pummel liberals who want to bring in more Muslims into Europe.
