Following last years string of sexual assaults and robberies reportedly committed by groups of male immigrants Berlin authorities are to set up a "safe zone" for female revelers.
No word on whether other countries who experienced similar behavior are taking extra measures to protect their civilians but I expect security will be increased in an attempt to head off further inconvenient headlines in the New Year.

Organisers of Berlin's New Year's Eve celebrations are to set up a "safe zone" for women for the first time. The new security measures planned for the Brandenburg Gate party come amid concerns about sexual assaults.
A large number of assaults and robberies targeting women at Cologne's New Year's Eve celebrations two years ago horrified Germany. Hundreds of women reported being attacked by gangs of men with migrant backgrounds


But the idea of a special safe zone for women at large public events has not been welcomed by everyone. Critics say it does not tackle the perpetrators of sexual violence, while some others complain it is discriminatory.

It remains to be seen if the behavior exhibit last year by some migrants across mainland Europe will be repeated at this year's celebrations and what action will be taken if it is.

It is rather sad and disgusting that we have come to a point where this is considered the only liable solution to the problem

If I were a woman I'd be pissed too. 'Oh, here you wilting flower, stand in this corral so the rapists can't get you.'

How about targeting the perpetrators and not treating the women like livestock.

Agreed , not sure how many were convicted and deported but I doubt it was many.

Isn't it sad that the whole population has to suffer because a minority can't be civilised?

Some folks like to bang on about immigration and multiculturalism only having an upside. Well, there's no upside here, is there?

It's a retreat zone setup by the red cross for women who feel uncomfortable or have been sexually assaulted or being harassed. They aren't going to segregate all women from the men. The women have a choice. It's just there, just in case.

But yea, it is sort of a sad that a celebration such as news years already has FEAR written all over it. It's going to be an interesting new years eve around the world that's for sure, many people on their toes, walking on egg shells.

I say Berlin men should stand up to the plate and protect their women from these thugs. It's obvious the police are either overwhelmed with this situation, or they were told not to cause a "scene" that would make Germany look bad. These "immigrants" should get their faces smashed in by billy clubs, batons or German men's fists.

I so am done with the tip-toe-ing around it, if you are here to harm the country which currently is your host, please show yourself to the door. My patience with the world wide terror is done. All of us have to stop fighting and there is a muslim on muslim problem, too here. Every terror is bad. Period. It won't and can't help your cause. The opposite happens you loose all credibility.
And rightfully so.
I'm so bed up with wars and all that sh1t. I just learned about the cold war and now we are in this mess.
A true Act of God would be great, right? Make us take a deep breath.

Welcome to 2018, where safe zones, semi-trailer trucks and 1984-level surveillance will protect you from a very vocal minority who have declared war on civilization.

The civilization is ripe for the taking too, mainly because the TVs are working overtime to ensure that citizens around the world see lies as truth, and truth as lies. Also, and most importantly, the TVs rely heavily on Americans being uneducated with short attention spans, that way, the propaganda is assumed to be truth.

Sad state of affairs when folks can't see that 'tolerance' is a 2-way street, has limitations and does not include manipulating existing axioms because 'book' says 'kill em all'.

Just remember, there are no "no-go" zones.

Just zones where you'll be raped and or killed if you go there.

Here's the thing Peeps, in cases like the Original Post I think we are the ones that need to escort our unwanted house guests to the door. They aren't leaving on their own.

The streets of European cities are much less safe for our daughters in particular than they were before ISIS. It is time for radical measures to correct the serious incompetent decisions made by our political leaders.

I would take into custody every single refugee that entered my country and ship them all back to where they came from where it is acceptable to behave like animals. No mercy! This is the only way to correct this horrendous error that has been made by useless stupid liberals!!

Will this be Merkel's legacy? Safety pens to protect women from sex pests and rapists.

They should be put on a dinghy and hauled back to where they came from. Wars nearly over in Syria and they could use some help rebuilding.
