While Oktoberfest’s attendance is low, the danger of sexual assault has raised over 30%.
The awful truth is that Oktoberfest rapes have gone up significantly, even though attendance of the month-long drinking festival is extremely low. Given what we know about sexual assaults becoming more frequent in areas where the refugee population is heavy, it doesn’t take much to put two and two together on this one.
“This year’s Oktoberfest saw the least amount of people turning up at the Munich event in 15 years, but still experienced an increase in sex crimes reported to police, the Local writes.
“Around 5.6 million people visited the festival this year, a drop of 300,000 compared to the previous year. The number represents the lowest since 2001, when 5.5 million attended the event, which took place soon after the 9/11 terror attacks.That massive 33% increase in sexual crimes from one year to the next is absolutely appalling, with truly only one factor changing from year to year – migrant populations in Germany. The German people have been rebelling against their government’s liberal stance on middle eastern refugees for this very reason, and now their fears are coming true.
“As the numbers dropped, so did the amount of crime – with one type a notable exception. Thirty-one sex crimes were reported to police this year, compared to 21 in 2015, the Local reported.”
