If you were looking for the weirdest angle to the New Year's Eve episode in Koln with the sexual assaults.....it came this morning from local news sources in the Koln area: there are now charges being examined against police authorities in Koln.
The prosecutor involved....won't describe the charges or who they are being formed against. One might look broadly at the big picture and simply say that several of the young women assaulted or gentlemen robbed....have formed the opinion that police leadership allowed a marginal police presence to exist in the area of the train-station.
The odds that the charges stick and actually go into a court? I would have my doubts.
Even if they got that far....the judge would want absolute proof or evidence of incompetence or failure of leadership. This would require some cops to step forward and show written correspondence or emails that limited their actions.
In essence, it would be a remarkable thing if all this were to occur, actually going through a trial, and a guilty verdict were rendered against some police authority.
