It takes a nation to protect the nation
About 90 women have reported being robbed, threatened or sexually molested at New Year celebrations outside Cologne's cathedral by young, mostly drunk, men, police said on Tuesday, in events they have described as 'a new dimension in crime'.
Cologne police chief Wolfgang Albers told a news conference officers described the men as looking as if they were from "the Arab or North African region" and mostly between 18 and 35 years old. "We have one complaint that represents a rape," he added.
Integration commissioner Aydan Ozoguz warned against putting foreigners and refugees, hundreds of thousands of whom have entered Germany largely from Middle Eastern war zones, under "blanket suspicion".
Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed shock over the attacks that police said occurred when about 1,000 men split into gangs as officers cleared a square to stop fireworks being thrown from the top of steps into the crowd below.
While politicians also urged people not to become wary of all refugees, the incident fueled calls from right-wing groups to stop letting in migrants.
Germany took in just over a million last year, far more than any other European country.
Cologne mayor Henriette Reker said it was "unbelievable and intolerable what happened on New Year's Eve" but there was no reason to believe those involved in the attacks were refugees.
Justice Minister Heiko Maas said Germany would not accept such attacks which he described as "a new scale of organized crime".
Around 150 people gathered in front of Cologne's cathedral on Tuesday evening to protest against violence against women. One of them held a sign saying: "Ms Merkel where are you? What do you say? This scares us!"
The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has gained in polls in part at Merkel's expense thanks to a campaign against refugees, said she should close the border.
"Mrs Merkel, is Germany 'colorful and cosmopolitan' enough for you after the wave of crimes and sexual attacks?" tweeted AfD chief Frauke Petry.
Merkel told Reker in a phone call the attacks deserved a tough response.
"Everything must be done to investigate those responsible as quickly and completely as possible and punish them, regardless of where they are from," she said, according to her spokesman.
There are almost daily attacks on refugee shelters.
"Events like that in Cologne foster xenophobia," said Roland Schaefer, head of Germany's association of towns and localities.
After a crisis meeting, Cologne mayor Reker said new steps would be taken to avoid a repeat, including increasing police numbers at big events and installing more security cameras.
She stressed that women must feel safe at traditional carnival celebrations next month when the city closes down for five days of drunken street parades and parties.
Reker was stabbed in the neck and seriously hurt in October, just a day before she was elected mayor. Police said that attack appeared to be motivated by her support for refugees.

The sordid details of the horrifying sexual assaults and attacks made against ordinary Germans by large gangs of migrants in Cologne in the early hours of Friday morning are just now emerging.
Far from a small number of sex assaults reported to have been made by German speaking men in initial reports on New Year’s Day, dozens of women are now reported to have been molested and “raped”, while dozens more men have been assaulted and robbed.
One victim, 28 year old ‘Katja L’ spoke of her ordeal as she tried to make her way to the waiting room of Cologne railway station with two other girls and a boyfriend in the early hours of new year’s day. She told Der Express – one of the largest regional newspapers: “When we came out of the station, we were very surprised by the group that met us there”. She said the group was “exclusively young foreign men”. Keeping close to her friends, they pressed on:
“We then walked through this group of men. There was an alley through [the men] which we walked through. Suddenly I felt a hand on my buttocks, then on my breasts, in the end, 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.
“Fortunately I wore a jacket and trousers. a skirt would probably have been torn away from me”.
As Katja L and other witnesses who have since come forward said, as they were molested by the gang the men were laughing and pulling their hair, and there were shouts of “ficki, ficki” (fucky fucky) hurled at them as they were called “sluts”. Treating her as “fair game”, there had been so many men groping at her Katja L said she would be unable to positively identify any of the perpetrators to the police.
Others were less lucky. One woman had her tights and underwear torn off by the crowd, and a police source quoted said there had been “rapes” at the station that night.
So far, police have identified 80 victims of the gangs, 35 of which were subjected to sex attacks. Others were assaulted or robbed. Officers suspect there are many more as of yet unreported cases from the night, and are appealing for victims to come forward after their ordeals.
A press conference hosted by Cologne’s chief of police Wolfgang Albers this afternoon confirmed the attacks had been perpetrated by migrants, all of whom were found to be carrying official immigration paperwork by police officers at the time. Mr. Albers said “the crimes have been committed by a group of people who mostly come from her in appearance from the North African and Arab countries”, and that he found the situation “intolerable”.
In addition to the sex attacks, there were several brawls between migrant gangs at the railway station, and large numbers of fireworks were fired into the crowds and at the hapless police. A witness said: “There were thousands of men. Simply firing into the crowd, and as my girlfriend and I wanted to get us to safety, but they blocked our way. We were so scared! We fled from the station”.
Despite dozens of men and women having been attacked, the area being comprehensively monitored by CCTV, and having thousands of potential suspects, Cologne police have arrested just five men so far in relation to the new year’s eve attacks.
The police chief may yet have serious questions to answer on the attacks, which follow a year of record breaking migration, after it emerged that just ten officers were dispatched to the station after the report of a gang sex assault in the early hours of the morning, and unverified accusations started to circulate on-line of officers even ridiculing a victim for not having been vigilant enough to avoid being attacked. Breitbart London has approached Cologne police for comment.
The police union said of the incidents: “This is a completely new dimension of violence. This is something we have not known”.
Before the New Year some German towns cancelled fireworks displays for fear of upsetting migrants who would associate the loud noises with the sounds of a war zone.

Comment from Joe
Following on from the events in Paris & Brussels just a few weeks ago, we had the 2000 organised muslim immigrants (arabs & blacks) attacking German women (and men) in the heart of Cologne on NYE.
Just to let you know: this story about only broke by Breitbart on 4th Jan, and BBC etc on 5th Jan. NB 4 to 5 days later. If Breitbart had not broken the story, there's every chance it would have gone unnoticed outside Germany. After all, why hadn't the BBC, Reuters, AP etc. picked it up by 1st or 2nd Jan?
On twitter I had a German woman tell a group of us about it a day or two before it broke in the meda. We are your regular islamophobic extremists: we found it hard to believe what this German woman was telling us. Literally, we were quizzing her about her command of English, about legal definitions in Germany, etc.
Now, despite the lies of the controlled media and the lies of the German state, here's a video describing what happened. I've saved a screenshot of what the seasoned policemen were saying: comparing it to civil war and saying they've never seen violence like this before on the streets of Germany. Consider that: they are saying it was worse than football hooliganism, worse than riots.
Here's the video:
And the answer to this violence: German women must stay at home, or (basically) wear a burka.
This was documented & predicted 10 years ago, in Bawer's "While Europe Slept". He pointed out that in the Banlieus of French cities, young kuffar women who do not dress as muslims, will have their faces slashed. I found this scarcely credible, but now we see this and I start to think it far more credible.
The big lesson from that video, as 4F people already know, is that once it starts, the state will not protect you. All those women begging for protection from the speaker, are a foretaste of the future. So prepare to defend yourself, people, the police arent going to do it, they'll be too busy with their own problems, (even if they wanted to).
Comment from Joe
Tommy did a video on it telling people about the Demographic Tsunami. One of the German women assaulted in Cologne had been one of those holding Refugees Welcome.
Here's a photo I received from the German woman who told me about Cologne days ago. It's inside the station. In TR's video, he says the police were not even attending because they knew they could not control the situation. In fact, in a confined area like this if 1% of the men in there are police trying to control things, they would probably be kicked to death (or worse).
Also, remember our media parroting lies of German state ("they were drunk, but we don't know if they were refugees").
Do those men seem drunk? Only drink on display is a large bottle of mineral water.
Look at that well lit station area. They must have at least 4 high quality cameras on that space, for general security, and to monitor for bomb threats. So where are all the surveillance photos? Where are all the arrests? They can arrest people just for disorderly and threatening behaviour, it doesn't have to be an actual rape or theft, then they can revoke their refugee status. But of course, that aint gonna happen. The agenda of population replacement is supported at too high a level, and by too many of the media.
Comment by Joe
The video report said police were arresting them. But that the cells were full.
Since the Brixton riots in early 80s, we've been told it's "policing by consent".
What happens when the population is islamised to the point where they only consent to sharia-compliant policing?
