This story about plans for New Years Eve in the capital of Germany is yet another to add to the year’s big pile of “it’s come to this” news:

It’s gotten so bad that Berlin needs a safe zone from… Berlin?

Apparently not.

There’s a thought!

From the BBC:

Organisers of Berlin’s New Year’s Eve celebrations are to set up a “safe zone” for women for the first time.

The new security measures planned for the Brandenburg Gate party come amid concerns about sexual assaults.

A large number of assaults and robberies targeting women at Cologne’s New Year’s Eve celebrations two years ago horrified Germany.

Hundreds of women reported being attacked by gangs of men with migrant backgrounds.

However, presumably, women will have to walk through zones deemed unsafe to get to and from the “safe zone.”

Maybe they need to think about creating a “safe zone” outside of the “safe zone.”
