I have written a couple of times now about the crimes perpetrated in Cologne and elsewhere in Germany. Yesterday I saw this new report from the National Post which spelled out some aspects of what happened: “Cologne police report describes ‘chaotic and shameful’ mass sex attack.”
Police in Cologne, Germany, were overwhelmed by groups of men attacking women in the city center on New Year’s Eve, according to a leaked report.
An unidentified senior official who wrote the report for Germany’s national police described a “chaotic and shameful” evening in which a lack of officers at the scene meant those there “reached the limits of their abilities pretty quickly,” according to Der Spiegel, which obtained a copy of the report.
“Women, accompanied or not, literally ran a ‘gauntlet’ through masses of heavily intoxicated men that words cannot describe,” the official wrote.
The report contradicts the Cologne police department’s initial depiction of the night as “relaxed,” a description that has since been recanted. Authorities now say that more than 100 women have filed criminal complaints of sexual assault – including two reported rapes – or thefts during the festivities that evening, according to the Associated Press.
Roughly 1,000 men described by officials as being largely of “Arab or North African origin” had congregated in the square outside Cologne station that night, with groups reportedly breaking off to assault women. Victims described a sense of lawlessness that evening as criminals flouted the law even with police present.
“They grabbed our arms… pushed our clothes away, and tried to get between our legs or I don’t know where,” one victim told the BBC News.
In addition to sexual assaults and robberies, there was also outright mutilation, though I don’t know how intentional it was. A women said a man threw a firecracker into her hood.
“I heard a sizzling sound in my hood and I somehow tried to get it out of the hood,” she said. “Then it fell into my jacket and burned everything. The scars will stay. I was lucky that it didn’t explode.
We have more evidence that the police tried to cover this up initially. Were it not for the internet,they might have succeeded.
What’s to stop this from happening in an American city? If our government brings over enough refugees, and doesn’t do thorough background checks, there is no reason to believe the police will do a better job of protecting us.
The only thing that might make a difference is our second amendment. If this happens in a Red State it won’t end well for the miscreants. But for that very reason it probably won’t happen is a city like Dallas, Houston, or Nashville. But what about disarmed liberal utopias like New York City, Chicago, L.A., or Washington, DC?
Those favoring “immigration reform” will strongly condemn this if they want to win over the American people. We pay taxes, allegedly, for government protection from crime and foreign invasion. But the native Germans of Cologne and other cities have discovered that their taxes have been used to import foreign criminals. At the same time not enough resources were devoted to police protection–the police were obviously overwhelmed by the number of imported criminals. If we’re going to welcome immigrants we need to know the government is not importing criminals to hurt us.
But everything we see in Germany indicates that many in the government and the media are more concerned about opposition to immigration than about immigrants committing mass sexual assaults.
Are American politicians so different?
