All I can say is wow.... It seems common when large groups of these male migrants get together that stuff like this happens.
Police in Cologne say that a crowd of Middle Eastern and North African immigrants estimated in the thousands launched fireworks at people, sexually assaulted dozens and dozens of women, and robbed people in the area all the while fighting among each other.
This kind of behavior is just going to encourage further right wing nationalism and end up ensnaring innocent migrants in what could be tit for tat retribution.
So far police have arrested only 5 suspects out of potentially hundreds of perpetrators.
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”.
Here is a link to the local paper. (In German)
punishing individals in "the west" for behaving how they have been brought up to behave and think
simply wont work.

Did any of you actually read the German report this is from?
That one is from a right wing German news source, and even then it's VASTLY different from the exaggerate nonsense Briebart reports - but never let actual reality get in the way of far right propaganda!
Briebart mixes reports from ACROSS THE CITY with the accusation that this was all "dirty, terrorist, migrants".
In reality, these numbers were from across Cologne, from various groups of people of all kinds of backgrounds. And why is this? Because the Cologne police are apathetic to doing their jobs regarding anything happening on NYE, and they have been that way for a while.
Now, if you all want to go back through and ACTUALLY READ the bs you're swallowing before you go off on your extremist rants, you'll find that there are unsubstantiated statements made by random women (not police reports) of being attacked, while the Police have actually accepted 35 reports FROM ACROSS THE CITY, of attacks in general - not by immigrants.
The scary 1,000 people are across Cologne, nothing to do with the train station and nothing to do with the immigrants you want to blame.
I do wish you people would learn some critical thinking.
Then again, actually scrutinizing the bs your far right propagandists want you to believe doesn't suit you. You don't actually want to read the truth, you just want the propaganda to reinforce your already ignorant views.

These aggressors stem from a culture which chops the hand off thieves, cuts out tongues of liars, and gouges out eyes for looking at things considered illicit. I'm suggesting the west adopt this element of Sharia law when dealing with them... if castration doesn't serve as a deterrent, then you keep on slicing off parts until you have a serial rapist left with a torso and a head, at which point they can go as aggro as they wish, it won't be a threat to anyone.
