Even Breitbart took half the article before they so much as mentioned that the people involved were of middle eastern decent. Maybe nobody wants to step on that landmine until they know what the story is.

They have no idea whether it were current refugees, but yeah it was one specific group of foreigners.
And there was nothing usual about this whole thing, it's happened on a scale that's unheard of here and it also seemed pretty damn planned and coordinated.
No idea when the international reporting will pick up (it wasn't reported here until two days ago as well), but again: I live here. It happened. People are ****ing terrified. Deal with it.

It's being reported in all the german media, including the state owned news, this way, despite them being usually very, very cautious about reporting the nationality. Seems to be legit.

And you know this because of your local news reports? Which of course are ridiculously country partisan?

I watched the entire vid. Seemed like things were going good for the most part. Then some idiots took it off the rails. Then it became us vs. them. So easy to blame the brown skins these days.

I know this because all the media, including the usually super cautious state owned channels report it. Because the chief of police of cologne stated it in his official speech and the german police are extremely cautious as well.
The german media in general, although at times somewhat conservative, are never 'country partisan', it's not done this way here. Don't confuse germany and america.

You're just mad at all your friends and family for being racists. Every news article I've looked at, from The Washington Post to the ones posted here, has said the exact same thing: thousand(ish) number of middle eastern males groped, raped, and robbed dozens of women.

He's practicing his counterarguments for their upcoming Facebook posts about this story.

Cologne sex attacks: Merkel disgust at New Year gang assaults - BBC News

Again, it certainly wasn't big enough to gain a US audience. And there's millions here who would feed on this **** to death if it were truly legit as a refugee driven event.
The BBC is a cunt of a source. Biased beyond belief.

Ms. Reker, Mayor of Cologne suggests the following advise:

The proposed code of conduct includes staying an arm's length away from strangers, remaining within your own group, and asking bystanders for intervene or to help as a witness.

Fun times ahead in Cologne, staying out of reach ffs!

May as well go one further and say stay at home and lock all your doors and windows.

I'd trust Breitbart over the BBC any day.

And grindy is right, Germany isn't famous for being particularly partisan these days.
