Mass sexual attacks, ongoing violence, unsafe streets, towns, villages — all at taxpayer expense. Give it 10 years — Europe will look like the Middle East.

Google Translate: “So dangerous is courage in a legal vacuum,” Die Welt, January 20, 2016:This photo and a long text posted by Peter B. on facebook: “Seconds later, I’m on the floor and a kick to my head … now I look like this … how are you continue with civil courage next time you even look and run away like the other 200 … “Courage has a face. It is Peter B., 49, who does not look away, when two men were attacking two girls in the Berlin S-Bahn station Ostkreuz beating and kissing them against their will. Today, he wonders if that was a good idea. Because what happened next was like a scene from a “crime scene”.One of the men tore Peter B. to the ground, the other, so a police officer said, who had evaluated the images of surveillance cameras. He joined the fallen Peter B. against the head. The impact was so strong that his body turned 90 degrees. B. says today that he could not remember anything more. Blackout. The next thing he saw was his face in the mirror of a hospital.His right side of the face was swollen, the eye only a narrow slit which disappeared under a bruise. He was lucky that he escaped with a slap on the wrist. Because the man who kicked his head, was gaining momentum for a second kick. Dustin L., a 16-year-old eyewitness, stopped him from being kicked a second time.
Men grabbing women’s breastsAn incident, that often happens in Berlin S-Bahn stations. So this story seems at first glance. Hundreds of passers-by who observed this incident, but not intervene. Offenders who escape undetected. The police have issued arrest warrants for the men and are now investigating them for grievous bodily harm. And a victim still frightened to the bone one week later. B. says the extent of aggression had shocked him. “How can I kick someone in the head, who is already on the ground?”Yet this case employs the Berliners even more than it would have if the public had not been sensitized by similar incidents in the New Year’s Eve for the issue of sexual harassment. Whether in Cologne or Hamburg, Stuttgart or Bielefeld: everywhere the same scenes. Men who simply grope women in public on the breasts, between the legs or on the buttocks, as if it were the most natural thing in the world. Arabic burly men in the majority, one could say, no, one MUST say.
Public spaces are lawless areasIn the time when the authorities are groaning under the onslaught of the wave of refugees from Africa and the Middle East , this results in an explosive conflict situation. Since the mere reference to the nationality sets up a range of indignation . Has the federal government already lost control over these people who flow daily into the country by the thousands ? Are train stations and public places now lawless areas in which the law is literally trampled ?The incident at Ostkreuz also raised these questions . Peter B. is not just anyone . The 49 -year-old is the spokesman of the blocks of fans Eisbären Berlin , the record champion and first table German ice hockey league . This club is dedicated to refugees and regularly invites residents from homes and emergency rooms for ice skating and to the home games at the Mercedes -Benz Arena.The police called the feedback on the manhunt accordingly great . Peter B. had posted it on the Facebook page of ” block 417 & friends ” . Other fans of polar bears celebrate him as a hero . ” Peter , you have my respect . Hardly anyone dares such an act today ” , wrote one . ” Dear witnesses ,” demanded another, ” have the same courage and at least report what you have seen now . ” But between the congratulations are also found pensive tones . ” Civil Courage or no, you could have been put in a situation that might have been very different ,” said one . ” We all know that those types very quickly pull out their knives , and then ? “
He didn’t stop to considerPeter B. was on his way home from a home game of the Eisbären Berlin , when he was struck down . It was on the penultimate Sunday around 18.45 clock . The polar bears had ended with 4: 2 against the Augsburger Panther .
B. was in a celebratory mood as he changed trains in Ostkreuz in his bright yellow fan tricot shirt . He got a cheeseburger at McDonald’s when he heard screams . He said two girls had vociferously resisted two guys . He had not considered long . He had just shouted : “Let the girl alone.”So it began . An unusual call for the police in a transfer station which is frequented daily by 123,000 passengers ? Or rather business as usual , as Peter B. claims to have learned on the way to hospital by paramedics . ” It happens here every day five or six times . “
Places where even policemen are afraidWhen the police union (GdP) described Ostkreuz as one of those areas where specific groups and especially youth gangs of offenders marked their turf. It is one of the “dramatic crime focal points” in Berlin, next to the RAW area, the Hasenheide and Kottbusser Tor. All places which the police spokesman says he will not rule out that also the policemen are afraid to go.“If I should so happen again, I would not intervene again”
