The sexual molestation of children in German swimming pools has become notoriously commonplace over the past year as Muslim refugees have flooded the country. The newcomers seem to regard the pools as their own special market for “uncovered meat”, where they may freely choose their victims from among underage bathers of both sexes. Incidents of harassment, fondling, groping, and rape have become near-daily occurrences.
The two articles below from Quotenqueen describe a German prosecutor’s decision to drop the charges against a “refugee” who touched little children inappropriately at a swimming pool. The rationale for the prosecutor’s decision? The kids had “stimulated” the defendant by their play in the pool.
JLH, who translated the material for Gates of Vienna, includes this introduction:
This is one of those things that cause us to shake our heads and go “tsk, tsk” at what is happening in Europe. Before giving in to that reaction, take a peek at these three recent articles from Breitbart. Read them sequentially and think that this is in one of the reddest of red states in the “middlest” of Middle America.
Those (probably none of the followers of GoV) who think this is just a defense of helpless unacculturated foreigners, should ask themselves: what kinds of social rules prevail where these poor souls come from? What would happen if they acted like this toward children of the privileged classes?
What have we done to make them feel we are lower than the scum of their own society?
The first report is a brief summary about the prosecutor’s decision:
Children “Stimulate” Refugee Pig
August 6, 2016
The children (five girls, one boy) had testified that they had been pinched on the bottom and grasped on the thigh by the 30-year-old. Further, the accused had pulled down one girl’s bikini top so far that her breast was visible, and tried to grab the eleven-year-old in the crotch. It is also said that a companion of the accused was standing on the edge of the pool and had a clearly visible erection.
State’s attorney: The children stimulated the Afghan’s action by fooling around. Legal proceeding canceled.
The second article, which appeared a few days earlier, gives a more detailed account of what happened:
Mother Horrified At Prosecutor’s Decision
August 2, 2016
After indecent touching of children in the Offenburg Hallenbad: Investigation canceled.
The Offenburg prosecutor’s office has stopped the procedure against a 30-year-old refugee, who sexually touched several children in the Offenburg pool in April. The mother who reported the incident is “disappointed beyond measure” at the lax application of justice and sees an “open door for further offenses.”
“I screamed four times,” says Maike Sicre, after she had read the written communiqué of the Offenburg prosecutor. The mother of two daughters was informed that the proceedings against a 30-year-old Afghan citizen on suspicion of sexual abuse of six children aged 5 to 12 years was being halted. Sicre had made the complaint and is now outraged at this legal decision. “It is the absolutely wrong approach, to hush up or whitewash such things,” she says. It does not matter to her where the man comes from, she just wants some justice. And now she questions how the accused will act in the future, after the state’s attorney has said not one word of reproach about the incident. The verdict is not a deterrent. On the contrary, the door is open to further misdeeds, Sicre fears.
What really upsets the mother is that she sees the state’s attorney’s argument twisting the facts. There it is claimed that the children stimulated the man to touch them by fooling around. “No way!” says Sicre. Her daughters were shocked when she read them the prosecutor’s letter. “Mama, that makes us look like the guilty ones.”
The children (five girls and a boy) testified, among other things, that they had been pinched on the bottom and grasped on the thigh. The accused had also pulled down one girl’s bikini top so far that her breast was visible, and tried to grab the eleven-year-old in the crotch. A companion of the accused was standing on the edge of the pool and had a clearly visible erection.
Just “fooling around”?
The prosecutor reports that investigations and interrogations of other witnesses revealed that the actions described had been preceded by the accused taking part in the children’s ball-playing. The accused had denied all the actions he was accused of.
The prosecutor’s interpretation says that the children described the situation to the pool supervisor as “fooling around.” The contacts were brief and fleeting and occurred during play. The state’s attorney continued: No compelling sexual inference could be made from the fact that the children were touched on their bare skin, since children at swimming pools are naturally only lightly clothed and the accused did not have to uncover any body parts in order to touch them. It was the same with pulling the bikini down and exposing the breast. That too could not qualify unmistakably as sexual action, but rather part of the fooling around. Nor could any connection be established between the actions of the accused and the possible erection of his companion. There was nothing actionable here either.
Maike Sicre does not intend to accept the prosecutor’s point of view. She will take advice from an attorney and consider whether to appeal.
