    And this is one of the many events that could take place when you stupidly invite in a million people without background checks.
    It's funny how you jump into conclusions very quickly. It's better to wait for more information than point fingers. How insensitive.

    Sky's Sam Kiley says a video has emerged of one of the gunmen filmed from a rooftop in Munich. In it the gunman says: "I'm a German" and he grew up on benefits. And he talks about some kind of treatment. It's not clear if he is talking about medical treatment or treatment that he is claiming to be the victim of.

    Witnesses said that the terrorist was a white man who shouted "I'm German!" and "**** immigrants!" as he shot innocent by bystanders

    A Munich police spokesman says there is no indication of Islamist terror.
    My heart goes out to the victims' families. These types of attacks are horrible and need to stop.

    Not entirely accurate. Please refer to this thread:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Munich22Jul...ter_screaming/

    Some German guy has posted a transcript of the whole conversation.
    hmm, this is why I prefer to wait until they actually catch/kill the culprit and confirm their identity. Have they caught him yet?

    What also bothers me is a lack of acceptance for heuristic-type reasoning. We do not know for certain who is behind this attack, but we're not politicians or members of the police so it's not our job to take an evidence based line of enquiry. If he's wearing jackboots and yells ''Seig Heil'', he's probably racist, if he's waving a black flag and cries ''Allahu Akbar'', it's probably Jihadi. You don't wait around for him to release his manifesto before passing judgement.

    thanks mods

    The Islamaphobia and hate speech towards Islam in these threads is pretty disgusting.

    Islam is a religion of peace.

    Can you cite some evidence to support your implication that attackers are one of the "million people invited without background checks"?

    Police are calling it a 'suspected terrorist' incident.

    But said there is no indication of an Islamist background. No 'Allahu akbar', no ISIS flags etc. And if the video of the gunman on top of the multi-story carpark is legit, that guy had a Bavarian accent and was born in Germany.

    Unfortunately, yes. This is starting to sound like the norm.

    Since I am familiar with your posts, put away your pitchfork as Islam is not to blame.

    It seems that the shooter had an anti-immigrant motive and it is being treated as a terrorist incident.

    German news n24 confirm that it was terrorist incident
    Not all terrorists are Muslim, it is possible for the incident to have been say a neo-nazi terrorism. Terrorism != Islam.

    I never once suggested that 'suspected terrorist' incident meant Islam. Let's not speculate. As I said before, there's absolutely no indication that this is affiliated with Islam.

    Terrorism isn't strictly terrorism by a Muslim.

    Terrorism: the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

    The shooter was reported to be anti-immigrant.

    Yes, they do. Neo-nazis, like in any other country. Probably the same prevalence as in most Western European countries, and less than in Eastern Europe.
