Safe zones...

...for women in Berlin, Germany.

Berlin Creates 'Safe Zones' for Women at New Year's Celebrations
Out of fear of a replay of what happened two years ago in the city of Cologne when groups of migrant men abused dozens of German women celebrating the arrival of the new year, the city of Berlin has decided to create "safe zones" for women at the New Year's celebration at Brandenburg Gate. Women can go to the safe zones when they are harassed or simply don't feel safe.

The safe zones are guarded by members of the Red Cross. There will also be psychologists present to help the women deal with the abuse they might suffer.

The safe zones were created at the request of Berlin's police department. Earlier, the October Fest in Munich experimented with these safe zones, which proved to be very useful.

Now WHY would these 'safe zones' even be necessary? I don't remember hearing about such things growing up in the 80s, through the 90s and into the early 2000s.

WHAT has changed? Europe is no longer safe for women. THEY HAVE REGRESSED.

Hell, we've got similar "Red Zones" here in the U.S. on college campuses for co-eds.
