A Police Commissioner was giving evidence before a fact-finding investigative committee of the state parliament when she made the statement about the everyday apparel sparing women from horrendous ordeals.
The lady whose surname was withheld in the public hearing, told how she helped four victims near the entrance to Cologne Cathedral on the night of attacks in and around the central station. They broke down completely and just wept," she said. "They were completely overwhelmed."

There was silence in the room as she described how some victims were surrounded by up to 50 men at a time. The men pulled up their short dresses and grabbed their buttocks and breasts.
"The four women said the men attempted to pentrate into their bottoms and vaginas with their fingers. But that did not happen because they were all wearing tights."
The officer said she believed such clothing saved many of the victims from suffering far worse than just groping.

Bring on the tights but I prefer Stockings. Thought provoking though.
