Meanwhile, Back in Germany

Meanwhile, back in Germany, the effects of Angela Merkel’s open-arms policy toward Muslim refugees is still being felt. It is becoming increasingly difficult for young people, especially women and girls, to attend summer concerts.

It sad, but true. From the Daily Mail:

A German folk festival descended into violence after Iraqi and Afghani asylum seekers were accused of sexually harassing local women, it has been reported.

German police said Monday several assaults and cases of sexual harassment were reported in alcohol-fuelled weekend disturbances that saw youths rampage through a small town and hurl bottles at police.

Police chief Roland Eisele urged other women to come forward if they were abused over the weekend in chaotic scenes that started at Volksfest in the southwestern town of Schorndorf, Baden-Wuerttemberg state.

No arrests had been made over the alleged harassment, but police were treating as a suspect a 20-year-old Iraqi man and three Afghan asylum seekers aged 18 to 20 in a separate case in which a 17-year-old girl was groped.

The refugees did not respond well to the policy. I am sure that you are not surprised:

 'A large part of these were people with an immigration background,' the announcement said. When the police entered, the officers were thrown with bottles.

When a suspect was arrested for dangerous bodily harm and refused to arrest, many people began attacking the police.

According to the police, a large number of officials with protective equipment had to shield the arrest to prevent an attack. When the forces were withdrawn, they were thrown again with bottles. 

Police Chief Eisele said that the town had never seen such a thing. Perhaps they can all get together and write a thank-you note to their Chancellor:

Eisele said 'the aggression and escalation of violence' were unprecedented and unexpected in the town of about 40,000 people, located near Stuttgart, and that the local police force had to request backup from other cities.

Police said in a statement that many youths 'with migrant backgrounds' were seen in the crowd, but Eisele said that it was impossible to estimate a percentage.

Officers in riot gear moved into a crowd of about 1,000 Saturday night in the town centre to detain a suspect on charges of dangerous physical assault but came under attack as others hurled bottles at them.
If you were trying to find a silver lining in these storm clouds, the Police Chief pointed out that the horrors were less intense than were those in Cologne or Hamburg.

He stressed that the rowdy scenes in Schorndorf were less intense than those in Cologne or the riots in the northern port-city of Hamburg before and during the July 7-8 Group of 20 summit, when far-left and anarchist militants burnt street barricades and threw rocks from rooftops.

It was just another day in Angela Merkel's Germany. For having produced this she has been extolled as the new leader of the free world.
