The local newspaper Express reported “Ebertplatz is degenerating into a lawless area in the middle of Cologne city.” The area is reportedly made up of young migrants from North and Sub-Sahara Africa who are dealing drugs and have formed gangs. Cologne was made famous by migrant rape gangs on New Year’s Eve in 2015, where at least 600 women were sexually assaulted and robbed in front of the central station. Another 600 women were also attacked at other locations in Germany, including 400 in Hamburg alone.
According to Interior Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia state Ralf Jaeger “Most of the cases [of rape and sexual assault in Cologne] will remain unsolved.”
“The situation in our areas of exclusion has deteriorated. The gangs have taken over and the police have had to retreat. Swedish law no longer applies there,” said Moderate Party politician Mikael Cederbratt.
“It is absolutely necessary to do something, because these gangs are like cancerous tumors in our country, and it is urgent. My absolute belief is that we, the nation of Sweden, must declare war on criminal gangs.“It is the responsibility of the state to maintain the law, especially the police. But the police today do not have the numerical ability to maintain public order,” he added.
