Where is the suggestion to repost ??
Can't you read? The bit about "Please find a more appropriate thread if you want to post this" seems fairly clear to me.

Hmm I rather thought you were claiming credit for suggesting that I repost somewhere else ? Are you now claiming that it was not you who triggered the PM ???

On it's own fine but your track record - and indeed many posts on this board indicates a large degree of bias unfitting of a mod.
Which, exactly?
Yes, we all know about that one thread title, but what else?

Which one are you referring to exactly?

Is it the one where he changed the name of Esto's thread about islamic terrorism, wouldn't change it back until there was a whole new thread about him abusing his position?

Or is it the other recent one about the suicide bombing in Germany where he kept changing the title to suit his own bias? (much to the chagrin of the OP)

Lo and behold, after my post and the browser reloaded the thread, the title had changed to [suspected gas] and the edit-remark was completely erased, replaced just by "edited by Ace1"

Really, mods?! Really?

So first you sanitize an already neutral title, just to appease God-knows-whose sensitivity, and then you re-edit the post and completely remove the note from the original poster, telling about your own initial involvement?!

And of course now the [suspected gas] is also gone.

Down in the memory-hole! 1984 indeed...

    "there are some suggestions for tackling this problem"

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

Ah, a "gang" of one!
And this has what exactly to do with the topic of this thread

If you want to pursue this angle then you should note that in Germany in 2015 sexual assaults on children dropped by 3.24 percent.
But there were still 13,928 cases of sexual assault registered, meaning on average 38 children fell victim to this crime each day.

Well, to be fair there was another one keeping watch, so gang -ish, but yeah not much to do with the topic since this happened inside a refugee center, and it's known most pedophilia cases happen at home (or church).

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

Some sensible words:
"Angela Merkel said on Wednesday that refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, and that Islam belonged in the country as long as it was practised in a way that respected the constitution.

“The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of Islamic State, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees,” Merkel said at an election campaign event.

“We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution ... belongs to Germany,” Merkel said.

She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country. "

Protecting the constitution seems to be a fixation with her. More so than protecting the people she was voted in to protect.

Deluded words more like. Never mind, she'll be gone next year. With her only legacy being the woman that changed the face of Germany.

"Refugees have not brought terrorism to Germany", I guess it must be purely coincidence that Germany announced new measures last week to combat terrorism. Increased surveillance, a possible burka ban, steps to make it easier to deport criminals etc.

When will Europe's idiotic leaders learn that the more they peddle this line that "Islam belongs in Europe" the more people will shift to vote for politicians who believe the exact opposite.

Every time a leading politician opens their mouth to try to answer existing problems, they create more panic amongst the electorate leading us all in Europe to the far right - idiots! Scary stuff. Merkel's head is firmly in the Europe of yesteryear and really does not know how to speak, politically manage and lead this crisis. No one is talking about the refugees/ immigrants being stuck, pushed back and ignored across Poland, Hungary, dumped in Greece. Human rights organizations shouting loudly to be heard, but are ignored.. and Turkey is demanding their EU visas by the Autumn - the immigrant crisis being a big stick to beat the EU with.. and the US have announced they are moving all their Nuclear weapons from Turkey to Romania.. and keeping an eye on Putin is akin to watching someone play a very good game of chess. Good grief!

Turkey is playing a dangerous game.. but never mind, we'll just listen to Merkel and her EU boys.

Yep, Russia has been playing a "very good game of chess". What is Europe supposed to do in these circumstances in your view, if I may ask?
That was a pretty good rant though.

Why is it then that the budget for policing is being increased further?

Maybe you ought to have a word with Angela and tell her it isn't necessary.
