    Could potentially be a man with a cap gun attempting suicide by cop then.
    Yeah that's probably the case then.

    Also said now that it's unclear if it was even a real gun (Which would lend to the idea no one was hurt by the gunman).
    Yep... Reports that it was long barrelled rifle but unclear if real. Then there are conflicting reports that he fired 4 shots when taking hostages. So unsure what truth is.

    The man who did the attack was apparently "radical terrorist". Ofcourse Trump will get more support , he's the only president that openly said he would control whos coming in and out of the country and build a wall around mexico etc.

    But he didn't... his support dropped. check the facts. Last month he was neck and neck with Clinton, now Clinton is leading by a decent margin

    DPD (German news agency): likely not terrorist related according to "sources"


    Not that that stops people speculating on motives or using this for their own political means.

    This can go two ways

    1. If it is NOT a muslim , the media wont mention his religion but will make it seem as if the muslim migrants are to blame .
    2. If it IS a muslim , the media will go crazy so will everyone on TSR.

    Not gonna lie the idea he was pergida or a white nationalist sounds plausible enough.
    My initial thoughts were far right wing nationalist, as a response to recent events

    The murderer of Joe Cox wasn't a Muslim. Stop with your victim complex

    Also, the vast majority of mass shootings (and more recently police shootings) in the US gets extensive media coverage. Muslim or otherwise. Your theory doesn't match up to reality

    You bring that up without even showing concern for the victims. You're actually disgusting
    I don't see much concern for the victims in this post either but you didn't bring them up on it -

    Did the religion of peace make a peace again?

    Doh.

    Anyway, reports suggesting the only injuries here were from the tear gas and the shooter is dead, really relieved to hear one of these situations had a happy ending for once and no evidence to suggest it was an attempted terrorist attack thus far.

    So the word terrorist is only used when the perpetrator is a Muslim ?. How is that not terrorist related? A man opens fire on innocent civilians in a cinema .

    If he killed in the name of that religion it will definitely be mentioned. I don't understand why people can't understand this. They don't name his religion for shits and giggles, they name it because that was the motive.
    Most Muslim murderers aren't publicised as that because they don't kill in the name of Islam. Those who do, are.

    You may want to familiarise yourself with the definition of terrorism and, among others, Anders Brevik, The IRA, Red Army Faction, ETA. All of which were not Muslim but are generally considered terrorists/terror organisations.

    Also not every shooting is terror related. Columbine, Virgina Tech, etc.

    So your telling me the mass shootings in Orlando had the same media coverage as the other 135 mass shootings which have occurred in the past 6 months? I am certain the majority of the public wouldn't know of any mass shootings that happened this year apart from what happened in Orlando.

    My post was typed out and posted before those replies had come up on my screen. TSR doesn't update in real time.
    The poster I replied to was the first to bring Islam up and everyone else followed

    It's because it was in Germany, I thought it was in response to the Middle Eastern influx into Germany.

    Is somebody who opened fire in a cinema filled with civilians a terrorist or not ?

    I can see it, but I expected it to be an islamist due to the lack of decorum a subset of the migrants have been demonstrating, as well as what a lot of islamic preachers have said.
