Wolfgang Albers is just the fall guy. He was probably trying to do Merkel a favor and cover up exactly how disastrous her refugee policies really are. She is the one who should resign, along with Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker and all the other German officials whose migrant policies have made this invasion possible.
“Police chief in Cologne, Germany, is fired amid criticism tied to assaults on women,” by Erik Kirschbaum, Los Angeles Times, January 9, 2016 (thanks to Darcy):
