It has happened again. As if the vehicular attack on John Daly wasn’t enough, we now have this:
German police are scouring a flat for explosives after a man ploughed a minibus into a crowd of people and shot himself dead, killing two people and injuring 20 others in Münster, Germany.
Six people are in critical condition and dozens more are injured after the vehicle was driven at high speed towards families outside the popular Grosser Kiepenkerl bar in the university city, 300 miles west of Berlin.
Terrified diners watched as the driver shot and killed himself inside the vehicle at 3.27pm local time.
He has been named locally as Jens Handeln, 48, a German national with ‘psychological problems’ and no links to any terrorist organisations.
Police are currently searching the driver’s apartment for explosives and also investigating reports that two other people were seen fleeing the van after the crash.
Not terror! Just scouring for explosives for the fun of it.
ISIS. A Vegan Farsi nut-job. Crazed criminal. Confused elderly. Bad brakes. Mentally ill. Whatever. The motives and/or actual causation don’t matter, the weapon does. Enough is enough! I blame the (German) National Lorry, Van, and Minibus Association, or NLVMA, if that’s at all possible.
What civilian needs such a large, deadly, hi-capacity, deadly, fully automatic (seen a manual lately?), military-style, deadly, lethal, too powerful, deadly, assault van? No one – except for the police and the military and, okay, maybe the beer delivery guy. You, Mr. NLVMA supporter, can make do with Segway.
Where’s Young Hogg and his skinhead LGBBTIUQQQQQLXZZZHUIGBBMMIOPPDCYA buddy?
Will CNN classify this as another school shooting™?
There was a shot, you know. The unstable, NOT-a-terrorist, terrorist driver shot and killed himself at the scene. In a country with alarming strict gun control laws. He must have been a member of one of those “hunting clubs” we’ve heard so much about. That, or a terrorist. Amazing! They have gun control for everyone except terrorists and “hunters” but absolutely no control over those WMDs on wheels otherwise known as lorries (sometimes vans or minibuses). Ban them!
Wait, wait, Hogg and what’s her head may be busy with another case in America. Yes, this also has happened again:
Four Toledo, Ohio, teenagers accused of killing a man when they dropped a sandbag from a highway overpass have been ordered to a youth treatment facility, a court official said.
“The youth treatment center is a lockdown facility in Toledo. The program runs six months, but there is no set time to release. The average youth spends eight months there,” Lori Olender, juvenile division deputy chief for the Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office, said in an email.
Besides being ordered to the youth treatment facility, the teenagers were given four-year suspended sentences, placed on probation and ordered to perform 30 hours of community service, Olender said.
One was charged with murder and felonious assault and three were charged with involuntary manslaughter and vehicular vandalism, she said. All four pleaded guilty, The Toledo Blade newspaper reported.
The youths were charged after a sandbag dropped from an interstate overpass crashed through the window of a vehicle below and hit Marquise Byrd, 22, on December 19, 2017. He died later at a hospital.
Odd. I got this from CNN but I see no mention of a school shooting™. Oh well, everyone misses something sometimes; AC might still be recovering from that stormy interview.
I blame, not the actual criminal “youths,” but the powerful and all-too connected National Sandbag Association. Seriously, it’s not the little kids’ fault; a man is dead but a little community service and some treatment will make everything okay. You watch. Everything, that is, except for the ridiculous proliferation of ULTRA-hi-capacity (know how many grains go in one), assault-style sandbags.
Police and military. Average citizen. Repeal the 15th Amendment. Yadda, yadda.
You can’t use a sandbag to hunt.
They are of no use at all to homeowners in low-lying, flood-prone areas.
No use whatsoever – except for killing passing motorists.
And can you imagine what would happen if an assault sandbag collided with a bump lorry?!! We’d be looking at a G-D civil war! Ban ’em while there’s still time!
Oh, God! Oh, God! Oh, God! Video Blocks.
**When you hear the hysterical but calculating mainstream nuts move from #guncontrol to #vancontrol and #sandbagcontrol, you’ll know they’ve gone from communism to utter insanity. #straightjacketcontrol?
