German Mayor Tells Girls To Stop ‘Provoking’ Refugees With The Way They Dress

The mayor of a small German community said elementary school-aged girls should take alternative routes to school and not provoke refugees with the way they dress.

The town of Bad Schlema in central Germany has 5,500 residents. More than 100 people showed up to a city council meeting last week when the topic of the town’s 85 refugees was discussed.

The grandfather of an elementary school girl “under 10” said the children have been harassed by refugees on their way to school. The man asked Bad Schlema’s mayor Jens Muller about his plans to prevent sexual assaults by refugees on girls in the community, particularly when the weather gets warmer and people dress more lightly.

“That’s easy,” Muller said. “Just don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas.”
