Funny that I've not heard mention of this on the radio.

Police have arrested several people in Berlin and Cologne over suspected sexual assault against women during New Year’s Eve celebrations, police and media say. Most of the suspects were young men from Syria and Afghanistan.

At least seven people were arrested for sexual assault in the German capital, police said, as cited by Die Welt newspaper.

Give it a fortnight for the real figures to come out.  There was a media blackout for the Cologne NYE attacks.

7 days on the So-Called BBC before it was even mentioned iirc.

The only thing that will stop it is Merkel herself being spit-roasted on the Brandenburg Gate by a Somali and a Syrian.

I seem to be in a bad mood tonight. I am sorry about that and will try and go to sleep soon...

Well, seven isn't that many.

But how many 'minor' (or even major) assaults are there for every arrest?

Ultimately there were apparently 58 arrests after last year's Cologne NYE 2015/2016 assaults so it looks as if so far there might have been fewer arrests - so far.  Possibly because of safe zones etc, fewer females feeling it's safe to go out etc.

Although from the wiki link below the number of arrests and those charged might ultimately have been far fewer than 58 - and those actually convicted fewer again.

Yes - if they had had their way it would never have been reported.

The Cologne assaults were not reported by the national media for days, and The Local says many news outlets started reporting it only after a wave of anger on social media made covering the story unavoidable. This fuelled claims that the media was attempting to cover up crimes by immigrants. Although Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker condemned the assaults, she was strongly criticized for some of her comments and was accused of blaming the victims. Cologne's police chief, Wolfgang Albers, was transferred to provisional retirement for his handling of the situation. The police response and delayed media reaction met strong criticism from German citizens, with some placing blame on the European migrant crisis. The governments of Slovakia and the Czech Republic called for an emergency EU meeting following the assaults and various other EU governments made statements concerning the attacks

This can't be true. They won't change our way of life (TM).
