Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

Is this a distraction from what's happening in Syria?

This is happening in Syria, Madaya.
It is so sad they couldn't be helped..
Warning: painful to watch.

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

It says in the comments that it's a video from 2014, that it happens every year that they let off fireworks & use blank ammo in guns.

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

In those videos you see they were shooting blanks. Like a starter gun. Google : Schreckschusspistole and see the pictures. They do look realistic.

An attack in Paris by Afghan refugees... http://www.thelocal.fr/20160107/two-...on-paris-train

Quote:
A woman has made a lucky escape after a group of men sexually assaulted and attempted to rape her on a Paris train, reports say.

Probe in France after rape shown on Snapchat (04 Jan 16)

The 28-year-old woman was initially travelling in an empty carriage on an RER train in Paris on the night of December 9th when around ten men had got on the train at Montparnasse station.

The woman started to feel uncomfortable and decided to sit elsewhere, reported Le Parisien newspaper.

Three of the men, reported to be Afghan refugees, followed her and soon began to assault her. One of them strangled her with her scarf and another held a knife to her face while the three men began to undress her, reported the paper.

By chance at the next station another passenger boarded the train and intervened to protect the victim. He managed to scare off the attackers.
Such brazen gang attacks imo represent an escalation in sexual violence in public areas over what we have commonly see.

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

He was a man.
That was probably enough.
As sad as it sounds.

Maybe he had also already called the police.
Or claimed to have called them.

Nothing there to say it was a man either. All depends on how angry you are with the scene that confronts you. Really don't want to blow my own trumpet, but I've done it myself (in a work capacity) when I was managing a site and got called to a disturbance whilst the security guards were dealing with another incidence. Some drug addled bloke was dragging his girlfriend round by her hair and smacking her face into the wall. When your knees start trembling with sheer rage, that power can be channeled very well. By the time the police arrived, he was screaming at them..."Keep her away from me! She's freakin' mental!"

Edit: Have read that it was a man now.

I find it amusing how people are skeptical of perfectly plausible things for the most silly reasons. Of course one man can scare them off, because those people are opportunists and we're looking for an easy target. One loud or big man threatening to call the police could easily make multiple attackers run rather than run the risk of complications and getting caught.

I have found that bullies are merely cowards turned inside out.

The following bits tend to suggest that the story is true :

Quote:
Police were able to catch two of the alleged perpetrators thanks to the help of CCTV footage at the Montparnasse station. They were both Afghani refugees, aged 19 and 45 years old, men who the victim was able to identify, Le Parisien reported.
Quote:
The two men were charged with attempted rape and have since been remanded in custody.

Both men have reportedly denied the crime.

They said they were forced to flee Afghanistan after being pressured to carry out crimes against the western world, reported the paper.

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

Sweden Police also "failed to report" up an incident at a festival in Stockholm summer 2015 similar as what happened in Köln new years eve...

Usually I do not agree so much with Blocher, but when he is right he is right:
(sorry only in German)
http://www.blick.ch/news/schweiz/chr...id4541945.html

Both Media and Government incl. the police should be neutral (I know naive) and should "never" hold things back...

In Sweden at the moment there is little to none confident for the press and the government, I assume it is the same in Germany...

The UK had internment camps in Cyprus - there are still British army bases there, surely the Syrians will be happy to be in a safe place close to home.
