Attack on the Munich Subway

A pity that the English guy mentioned doesn't seem to be a TTer - then we could at least get confirmation for "us".

 

My suspicion is that this will be kept out of the general German press for just as long as possible - just like in Köln.

 

In fact, I wonder if it will ever become "public" knowledge in Germany...?

It's shocking how controlled the media is over here. People need to know what's happening. That something like this can happen during the day on a busy train it's frightening.

Or press the emergency call button which will connect to the driver, who can call security, police etc. to the next stop. In this case, nobody seems to have called the police when the incident happened.

I'm sorry, but is that what you've taken from this incident? How to use a cellphone? Are you by chance related to this Mayor? :lol:

Am I reading this right ? You mean  this guy in brown jacket won't be sent back from where ever he has come ?

The cops have everything they need, face id and witnesses.

 

And has the lady and the two men not registered a police complaint against this rowdy group.

 

Atleast the justice in usa is brutal and swift...

Boy this needs to be stopped immediately. All those creeps in groups  who keep ogling in the ubahn...god knows what's going on in their heads. 

 

My sympathies for the fair hair ladies in germany. You are indeed at higher risk.

How is a country expected to help by putting it's own at risk ?

 

Is there an article which describes why these folks are allowed inside in the first place ? I don't really blv sympathy is the reason. There must be some good reason why germany is even allowing them inside in first place. What does it hope to gain at all from this rampant import ?

 

Bewildered. ..

I was pretty annoyed the other day when my wife recounted a story which she'd not told me previously ....

Firstly my wife is disabled and gets out into town when she can and when the weather's good via her electric mobile.

 

Anyway, she told me she was in the centre of Erding, it was daytime and busy with lots of people around when a male (of typical migrant ethnic origin - her description not mine) approached her with his penis hanging out of his trousers and waving it around at her.

The passers by were shocked, my wife just laughed at him.

Nobody even tried to call the Police.

 

I've offered to buy her a pepper spray for next time.

This incident is shocking, but what's it doing headlining a UK 'newspaper'? No mention, for example, of a murder and a knife attack in London...

Oh wait... it's the Daily Mail.

Cynics might say: "been doing OK so far..."

It's shocking because Germany has a much lower crime rate than the UK. So not a good comparison.

@Malt-Teaser That is awful. I'm glad nothing happened to her beyond that, even though that in itself is pretty shocking. I think I'm speechless. 

 

I feel like we're not far from the days where we will need a police escort to walk home from the Ubahn or something. I'm afraid for the smaller, young girls in Germany... just sucks. Act like a friggin human and let's get on with our lives.

I find the word "shocking" (in the Daily Mail's headline) or even "horrifying" (Mirror)  exaggerated – but then that's normal for tabloids. These things, a verbal clash which escalates into a scuffle , do happen, usually when people are drunk and in an aggressive mood. One also has to note that both sides ultimately backed off. The girl also wasn't "attacked", just hit on in an annoying manner, as per the explanation of the video author.

Do we get a new thread started for every incidence of unrest involving brown men in Germany now?

Should the men in the video be behaving like that? No.

Should the police have been called and the perpetrators dealt with? Yes.

Is this worthy of national news? Absolutely not. There are upwards of 15000 crimes committed every day in Germany. This one just happens to be push people's buttons because the word "asylum" is plastered throughout the text (I assume the facebook poster checked the papers of the perpetrators, but that's just an assumption on my part...)

Why do you say they are drunk and in an aggressive mood?

I don't say they are, but that it's typical for situations with drunk people and that one just has to use public transport at certain occasions (football games, Oktoberfest, weekend nights) to witness similar incidents.
