In a really horrific report from Germany, a gang of a thousand young Arab or North African males sexually attacked women on New Year’s Eve, and liberals are making sure that no one “jumps to conclusions” about their very likely being Muslim immigrants that Merkel welcomed in.
From the New York Times:
Police say dozens of women reported being sexually assaulted and robbed around Cologne’s main train station, next to the city’s famous cathedral, during the night from Thursday to Friday. At least 90 criminal complaints have been filed, including one allegation of rape.
“The actions of the perpetrators were completely intolerable, and so we expect them to be prosecuted in the toughest possible way,” Reker said.
According to police, witnesses described the assaults as being committed by men of “Arab or North African origin” who had gathered in large numbers near the train station.
Separately, police in the northern city of Hamburg appealed for witnesses who observed similar sexual assaults and thefts in the St. Pauli district on New Year’s night.
Here are more details from the UK Independent:
German police has received numerous complaints from women who said they were groped and attacked in Cologne city centre. One woman has claimed she was raped.
He said the incidents were “a completely new dimension of crime”.
An MP in Angela Merkel’s party has claimed the events are proof Germany needs to tighten its borders.
As the festivities took place outside the famous Cologne cathedral, some of the men allegedly began sexually assaulting women and pickpocketing others, according to Reuters.
Local media reported that at least 80 people fell victim to the assaults, 35 of whom were sexually assaulted.
One of the victims, named only as Katja L, told Der Express her buttocks and breasts were grabbed.
“I was groped everywhere. It was a nightmare. Although we shouted and beat them, the guys did not stop. I was desperate and think I was touched around 100 times in the 200 meters,” she said.
“Fortunately I wore a jacket and trousers. A skirt would probably have been torn away from me.”
Some 60 criminal complaints have so far been filed, including the allegation of rape.
MP Steffan Bilger from Angela Merkel’s Christian DemocraticUnion has claimed the events in Cologne were proof Germany needed to reduce its intake of refugees.
“It can’t go on like this,” he tweeted. “Urgently needed: reduction of influx, secure borders, intensifying of deportations and meaningful justice.”
This is just horrific. Conservatives warned about how the Koran justifies the assault of non-Muslims and that allowing a surge of refugees into Europe would most likely lead to increased rape, but no one thought we’d see a terrifying mass attack like this.
Still want to bring in tons of Syrian refugees? All while the Obama administration takes away your guns and defangs the police? Welcome to “Hope and Change” the Muslim rape edition!!
