I didn't see a thread on this yet. The attacks (theft & sexual assault) on New Year's Eve at the Hauptbahnhof area in Cologne sound dreadful I see two main discussion areas about this event.
(1) What really amazes me is that I didn't see it on news sites until 5 days later. What's up with that? Did it really trickle out so slowly the media didn't notice it until Monday evening? I can't believe the left-leaning media leans that far left to "cover up" such a juicy story for literally days.
(2). And what does this event say about Germany's recent migrant influx? Cologne has had a huge Turkish population for years, but it doesn't seem that migrant group was involved in this incident. Were the bad actors recent immigrants? Was this get-together somehow related to recent migration, or was it some perfect storm resulting from social media contacts and might have happened two years ago just as easily? Was it an "us" (migrations Hintergrund guys) vs. "them" (ethnic Germans/Europeans) event?
