For John, BLUF: Clash of cultures. Nothing to see here; just move along.
It turns out that New Years Eve was not a good time to be in Köln Germany if you were a woman. In the aftermath the Chief of Police has resigned. There is the question of if this is the result of the major influx of Muslim migrants into Germany. Here is Brietbart's view of various reactions:
Before we get carried away about this being just the result of Muslims not respecting women, we need to also understand how this is a large group of men who are in a terrible situation and who are likely to do the kinds of things men in such situation are likely to do. This is not about a million immigrants. This is about groups of men without social controls because they have been uprooted from their communities.
Things are not business as usual. Solutions are not be to found by either excusing bad behavior or by assuming all immigrants are evil. We need to find ways to education, or even train, those who have come to new areas so they can be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
