    Germany: Several dead in shooting in Hanau



    A shooting in the western German city of Hanau late Wednesday left several people dead and many injured, police sources confirmed. German newspaper Bild reported that at least eight people lost their lives, while five others were wounded.


    The shooting took place at two shisha bars in different parts of the city, according to local media.
    The perpetrators reportedly opened fire at the first shisha bar in Hanau's downtown, killing three people.

    They then drove to the neighborhood of Kesselstadt and opened fire at the second shisha bar, where five people died.


    Authorities are currently looking for the suspects, who are said to have fled the scene.
    Hanau is a city of 100,000 inhabitants in the state of Hessen, some 25 kilometers (15 miles) east of Frankfurt.


    This is a developing story, more updates to come…

    Eight people are dead following two shootings at shisha bars in the western German city of Hanau.
    At least five people were injured after gunmen opened fire at about 22:00 local time (21:00 GMT), police told the BBC.
    Police added that they are searching for the suspects, who fled the scene and are currently at large.
    The first shooting was at a bar in the city centre, while the second was in Hanau's Kesselstadt neighbourhood, according to local reports.
    Police officers and helicopters are patrolling both areas.
    An unknown number of gunmen killed three people at the first shisha bar, Midnight, before driving to the Arena Bar & Cafe and shooting dead another five victims, regional broadcaster Hessenschau reports.
    A dark-coloured vehicle was then seen leaving the scene.

    People targeting muslims at sheesha bars. Sounds like something a Trumptard would do.

    Read something the other day about the German police (I think it was??) breaking up and arresting a right-wing terror cell that had planned to attack Mosques.

    I wonder if this is all related somehow?


    Edit: here it is, just found the link: Far-right German group planned mosque attacks similar to Christchurch massacre - NZ Herald

    Good question. All kinds of shadowy networks and interests behind it I suppose.

    It's either rival gangs - Arabs fairly well control the drug trade . . . or right wing nutjobs, but I'd suggest the former as the nutjobs aren't that co-ordinated nor clever

    BBC: Federal prosecutors are treating the attack as terrorism, with officials saying there is evidence the gunman was a far-right extremist.

    Well if true that will put a hitch in the plans of the usual suspects to blame it on Muslims.

    Not stop it mind, just delay slightly while they work out the angle.

    Another right wing whackjob. Sounds like he topped his own mother, or it was her death that sent him over the edge into whackjobdom.

    A suspected far-right extremist has killed at least nine people in attacks on two shisha bars in a city in western Germany, officials say.
    Chancellor Angela Merkel said there were many signs the attacker in Hanau had acted out of racism.
    Federal prosecutors are treating the case as terrorism. Turkey says at least five of the dead were Turkish citizens.
    The 43-year-old suspect killed himself, police say. He was found dead at his home along with the body of his mother.
    Local media have identified the suspect as Tobias R, a German citizen. The Bild tabloid reports he had a firearms licence, and that ammunition and gun magazines were found in his car.Authorities are examining a video that appears to be from the suspect, posted online days before the attacks, in which he expresses right-wing conspiracy theories. German media say he also left a letter of confession.

    As in not afraid to be openly racist - and most probably not very smart. Trump has appealed to the ignorant and educated around the world by making racism, lies and insults not only the norm, but acceptable.

    Idiots relate to Trump - and sadly, there are a lot of idiots in this world.

    Anyways, I'll look forward to your vociferous condemnation of this act of terrorism and demands and all other right-wing white dudes be held responsible...

    I think it's more a case of amentally ill lunatic rather than a right wing nutcase.
    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    Could be. A lot of that determination will still rest on the color of his skin though.

    You're not good at this thinking shit eh.

    ...evidence, including video footage and a “manifesto” found on the suspect’s website, showed Rathjen had “a very deeply racist attitude”
