Cologne Cover-Up

ByPamela Geller on February 24, 2016

This is reprehensible — a total cover-up. Total.

I do not for one moment believe that German CCTV cameras are “poor quality.”

Instead of investigating the migrant rapists, police in Cologne launch new sex attack investigation… into who was leaking information to the Press about cover-ups.

“New Year’s sex attackers unlikely to be caught – Cologne police chief,” RT, February 24, 2016 (thanks to Tom):

Most of the suspects in the sex attacks that allegedly took place in Cologne on New Year’s Eve may never be caught, the city’s police chief, Juergen Mathies, said.

The poor quality of CCTV camera footage will prevent the identification of sex offenders, Mathies said, according to the BBC.

“The CCTV footage is not good enough to clearly identify sexual assaults. We can see some thefts but that’s all. We are relying on witness accounts and victims identifying their attackers,” Mathies told the BBC.

On Wednesday three men – a Tunisian and two Moroccans – were brought before a court on the charge of thefts perpetrated on December 31, 2015. The Moroccan, identified only as Younis A, received a six-month suspended sentence for stealing a mobile phone. The verdict for the others is yet to be announced.

Police have charged 13 people so far with only one of them, a 26-year-old Algerian asylum seeker, facing a sexual offense charge.
Cologne police were able to pinpoint only 75 suspects while more than 800 complaints were filed.

The law enforcement came under wide criticism for the way they handled the incident. The police were even accused of trying to cover up the attacks, which forced Wolfgang Albers, Mathier’s predecessor, to resign.

Among the main mistakes an official report named the fact that no reinforcements were called in as groups of men started getting out of hand, surrounding and then attacking women and the public wasn’t informed about the attacks properly.

Mass sex assaults allegedly perpetrated by foreigners who gathered at Cologne’s main train station, harassing and robbing women, put the local community on alert and raised the question of whether asylum-seekers from North Africa and Middle East would be able to integrate into their new environment.

Europe is currently grappling with an unprecedented influx of refugees fleeing from war-torn regions in the Middle East and North Africa, with Germany following Angela Merkel’s open-door policy and taking in more than 1 million refugees and migrants.

    Germany has not learned that a lie has to be covered up with a bigger one, this will eventually get out of hand, and righteously so. In the unlikely event that germans decide to actually deal with the situation on the street, it will be ugly. But, not much chance of a eunuch rampage other than to the hair stylist to get prettied up for a trip to the spa.

    • wilypagan

      I don’t know. There seem to be a lot of fires at refugee centers lately.

      • It’s just a shame they’re all empty…

      • berserker

        Nothing is gained by attacking refugee centers. All it does is give justification to the accusations of racism and xenophobia. It is the politicians and the pliant journalists who should fear for their lives.

        • Everything I’ve read says it’s the refugees setting fires and rioting in refugee centers…no citizens are attacking them, have you seen different?

          • joe1429

            Its their way…to destroy everything… and merkel is housing these animals … in former concentration camp housing… a real spit in the face to the victims of the nazis

        • Disagree, let them burn by the thousands.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Yeah, strange, must be that colonists are unfamiliar with matches and smoking materials. If muslims could have a beer instead of a few tokes, maybe there would be fewer fires?

            O dear, and it’s such a cute one, don’t get rug burn.

  • wilypagan

    Looks like little Zucky Schmucky is getting his just karmic rewards for conspiring with Merkel to delete posts critical of the rapefugees from Facebook:

    • Robbydot1

      Thanks for the link.

    • Here’s hoping someone takes that leftist scumbag out of the picture in the States, sooner rather than later.

      If not, I’ve a feeling President Trump will be having a quiet word with him…

  • ajudicator1776

    Merkel’s legacy will be that she was a fool, an idiot, and a globalist! How pathetic are most of the EU leaders! Selling out their own citizens!!!

    I have yet to read one article on any positive impact that the Islamic migration has had on the host country. All I see is death and destruction of politically correct societies. Make no mistake, the elimination of Christianity, as well as all other religions, is the ultimate goal – then evil wins!

    • berserker

      And the Marxist Atheists think that Islam is harmless just like Christianity. The only reason they will be left alone initially is that they are useful idiots.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Just ask the atheists of Bangladesh — who are being murdered by muslums for daring to criticise islam (spit) there.

  • vercingetorix

    Germany is a country famous for the top-quality of their electronic industry. Those CCTV cameras did function well and reliably, i do not doubt that for a minute……

    • joe1429

      The tapes were burned …

  • trumpgal16

    14 new zika virus migrant patients today!

  • trumpgal16

    zika virus case in orlando florida! media not reporting only local media in florida why?

  • Juha Heikkola

    Thats the whole pupose of the mass attacks, they are organized and well thought, to keept the police out and blind. Muslims win 1-0, AGAIN !

    • The police can see well enough what’s going on – they’ve been ordered to pretend otherwise…

  • I already predicted this is how the government of Islamic Germany would put it out there. It’s obvious by now they’ve no intention of dealing with the gimmegrants and rapefugees and their crime waves of rape, assault, murder and robbery.

    The only way people can change this is to vote wisely in their next elections – by voting out the leftist scum forever.

    • jfmoris110

      Forever is the key part. They will disguise themselves and come back promising free stuff at someone else’s expense.

  • RealEngineer2

    Don’t count on tax dollars providing evidence “not good enough” to convict.

    If every domestic citizen in every country undergoing “cultural annihilation” wears a “body camera” (cheap and easily concealable now), and anonymously/legally
    posts their “refugee encounters” on-line, within weeks there would be an
    irrefutable torrent of evidence sufficient to “close the doors”.

    • If you can get it posted! A friend told me that even reddit was squelching people’s posts about Cologne for a Month!!

  • disqus_EhU3YQ88hy

    Even their lies are getting worse. Time to overthrow the elitists in the EU and elect leaders that actually like and want to preserve their countries and culture.

  • spacearcadian

    Praise Allah! don`t worry muslim refugees, mamma Merkel will protect you! Uncle Cameron, Uncle Hollande ,and western politicians will do their best too. The spirit of mohammad is guiding them

  • ljm4

    Thank GOD for our ability to carry. There will be a meeting of the minds here and I’m betting guns will win over blades..

  • got243kids

    Just like a globalist (an Elitist) to enjoy the convenience of faulty cameras at the exact moment of need.

    This is your future if you don’t smash it to bits. This is the sign post and it’s in our face. Next stop SLAVERY!

  • Robert Griffith

    It’s not like the German police don’t know where to find the people responsible for these despicable attacks. If they grabbed any particular young male “refugee” at random it would be better than a 50/50 chance that they have one of the attackers.

  • Voytek Gagalka

    What one could expect? Apparently, and out of sudden, there was not enough of water for the water cannons to deal with that rapecarnage in Cologne but suddenly they obtained water to deal with demonstrations opposing Mohammedan invasion few days later. “Superior” German economy, you know: full of shortages.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      The german economy is getting short on one thing, customers.

  • Bernadet Rodakowski

    As someone who has worked in the security and surveillance industry, I would say the statement about poor quality video from a “CCTV” is accurate. CCTV is a specific kind of video and monitoring system, and dates back to the 1980s. (Think of the difference between a cassette tape or even CD (digital medium), and an mp3 today.) Only in more recent years, with the advent of superior digital technology and storage capacity, has this changed. And even then, if it was a digital system, how refined (MPI) did they set the image capture, how many FPS, and what kind of data storage, ect.

    I’m not excusing the establishment in Cologne for the debacle and failure to protect their citizens, I’m just saying that particular part of the story very well may be accurate. Lame excuse for poor policing though… What about calling for video from common citizens? Unfortunately I’ve seen enough of those shocking videos on YT alone!

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I agree, usually CCTV cameras are low-definition and low FPS. The trade-off is usually how many hours of recording you get vs. the quality.

  • karl59

    the police have never of the term MUSLIM?

  • Ari

    Most likely idiot Merkel and her government is responsible for the censorship of this New Year’s Eve assaults and similar cases too. The European media hid these assaults committed by asylum seekers for 4 days. Only on January 5, 2016 the media told about incidents in Cologne. The censorship however did not last for ever, perhaps because of some internet sites already had a clue of this new year incident.

    It is obvious that the EU and its leaders control the European media. Does censorship belong to democracy? No!

    A retired media boss at a major German state broadcaster has admitted his network and others take orders from the government on what — and what not — to report.

  • joe1429

    Yea …right… the closed circut cctv cams were all not working in cologne… wink wink. How stupid does the german govt think the people are???

  • joe kulak

    Merkel is a marxist shill and a traitor to her own people. The only question should be: Blindfold or no?

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I’d love to volunteer for that duty. I’d even hit the gun range to get some practice in on my own dime before the event.

  • Save Europe

    This whole scenario is utterly vile! So many media and leadership attempts to cover this up! Let me put this to everyone – if a plethora of non Muslim European males had gone to Saudi Arabia and both raped and molested almost a thousand women, do you think the media would have hesitated to report it?! I don’t require an answer on that.
