Muenster, Germany: Man Drives Van into Crowd At Popular Tourist Restaurant – Three Killed, German Officials Deny Terrorism…

An unknown man drove a van into a group of people sitting outside a popular restaurant in the old city center of Muenster in western Germany on Saturday, killing at least two of them before shooting himself dead.

According to the AP: “A leading German newspaper is reporting that authorities believe there is no terrorist motive behind the deadly van crash in Muenster and the driver is believed to be a middle-aged German man who had psychological issues.”

Via Reuters – […] The vehicle ploughed into people sitting at tables outside the Grosser Kiepenkerl restaurant, which is popular with tourists.

“At 15:27 (1327 GMT), a vehicle drove into the outside area of the restaurant … three people were killed, 20 injured, and six of those seriously injured,” a police spokesman said, adding: “The perpetrator killed himself in the vehicle.”

It was not immediately clear whether the perpetrator was among the three killed, or whether his death took the number of dead to four. A police spokeswoman said separately that there were at least three people dead.  (read more)

  1. Horrible.

    But not surprising, as the Germans simply refuse to outlaw and confiscate personal vehicles.

        Yep, it couldn’t have happened in Italy 🙂

        Five Swiss in an Audi Quattro arrive at the Italian border.

        A customs agent stops them and says, “I’m sorry, but it’s illegal to put five people in a Quattro.
        One of you will have to get out.”

        “What do you mean, illegal?” asks the driver.

        “Quattro means four,” replies the Italian official. “Not five.”

        “But Quattro is the name of the car,” the stunned driver replies, “not its seating capacity.
        Have a look at the papers. It IS designed to carry five persons.”

        “You can’t pull that one on me,” replies the customs agent. “Quattro means four. You have five in your car, and you are therefore breaking the law. Either one person gets out or I’ll have to arrest you.”

        The driver begins losing his temper. “You idiot! Call your supervisor;
        we want to speak to someone with more intelligence!”

        “I’m sorry,” responds the Italian, “he can’t come. He’s busy with two guys in a Fiat Uno.”

      Oh, thanks to the Greens, they are. They’re starting with Diesels, first… (I’m only half-kidding there, the Greens are trying to put us back to the 6th century technologically).

      The media here is, as usual, saying it’s a psychologically-disturbed German. But those with dual nationalities, and the Burka-brigade barbarian anchor babies (yep, we have them too) are also termed German by our YSM, even though we all know better…

      Eventually the truth will leak out. We never had killings-by-vehicle before Merkel’s Coudenhove-Kalergi “Kulturelle Bereicherung” (cultural enrichment) began.

      Cultures like that belong in a Petri dish, or removed altogether.

      There’s already enormous pressure on Merkel from the Bavarian sister party (CSU) to hers (CDU). There are elections coming up in Bayern, and it could be a big win for our Deplorables, the AfD, or a further move to the right (i.e. back where they used to be) for the CSU.

      Something not reported is that there was to be a Kurdish demonstration in Münster today.
      The Turks are busy trying to wipe the Kurds off the map, so there were probably a lot of radical types around, and Antifa too…

        It’s probably just a “psychologically-disturbed German” who has the good old German name of Mohammed Mohammed or similar, who was yelling the old German battle-cry of “Allahu Akbar,” like those Teutonic warriors often did while swinging their scimitars into battle with the heathen.

            That story seems to have disappeared from the media, how surprising… not!

            About 12 years ago I returned to this country after a long time (30+ years) overseas. I was horrified to discover that “news” stories on my TV only appeared on some channels, and many didn’t appear at all. I mentioned one story to my cousin but said that I couldn’t remember which news program I’d seen it on- and without hesitation he said, “That was on Fox News.”

            Oh, come on, I replied; how do you know that, it was a major story so it could’ve been on any channel. “No, the others have an agenda; the only one that sometimes tells the truth is Fox. That story wouldn’t have been on any other network.” I was aghast.

            Not long after that, I cut the cable. All these so-called “news” outlets lie, even (sadly) Fox. Though at least Fox makes some attempt to live up to their motto, “Fair and Balanced.”

            So since I don’t know what the truth actually is, I’ll remain convinced that there is a reason this story was dropped so quickly: there’s a muslim in the woodpile! And we’re not supposed to know.

            So how long did they let that cancer fester and wreck the quality of life for the citizens nearby? Cannabis grow houses are easy to detect by helicopter at night using infrared cameras because of the heat signature they give off from all the lights. Large swathes can be scanned easily and quickly by that method. Also, many utilities used to notify authorities when there was a substantial and prolonged jump in the electricity usage in a residential home from such lighting arrays.

          The liberal Bundesländer (e.g. Nordrhein-Westfalen) are, for the most part, subsidized by the more conservative, more productive Länder (e.g. Bayern and Baden-Württemberg, but also Hessen, home of the banks in Frankfurt). Sound familiar? If the auto industry takes a hit, though, that situation could well change.

          The tax monies from the Bundesländer get divvied up, and it’s not fairly done. Bayern and Hessen are complaining, BW should, but they’re run (and being ruined) by the Greens, so maybe the Greens want them to become a welfare state, too.

My conclusion: Unless and until their eyes are opened no arguments, no facts, no common sense, no natural consequences resulting from this invasion (obvious to us), etc., are going to have any impact.

          I believe in the power of prayer. Millions across this country prayed that God’s hand would be mightier than the leftists’ powers of election fraud in 2016. Our prayers were answered. We should all be praying hard that a patriot who loves his respective country, as President Trump loves America, will rise in each of the European countries, and that God’s hand will be on him and guide him.

    It is important to point out at this point that IF the person who did this atrocity IS REALLY a 48-year-old German citizen named “Jens”:
    UNLESS there is a clear, documented list of mental issues diagnoses, record of doctors’ visits and prescriptions, times in therapy, etc. for this person—AND autopsy to determine whether “Jens” had high amounts of drugs and/or alcohol in his system at the time of the atrocity:
    THEN the German authorities MUST consider the possibility that “Jens” was RADICALIZED by the Koran to perform JIHAD on the Kuffar and then proceed to “martyr himself” to gain his “reward” from Allah.
    The Koran and the Hadith COMMAND that Jihad MUST be performed on the Kuffar by the faithful in any way that is possible. This command would include Jihad performed by Muslim converts OR by anyone who swears allegiance to Islam by reciting the Shahadah. These persons would then immediately be considered as Muslims and therefore under the laws of the Koran and the Hadith.

    Just some paranoia on my part, but if you wanted to discredit the ‘right wing’, recreating the Charlottesville car homicide would make a good start.

    Pick a sucker who already had attempted suicide. Make sure he has ‘links’ to the right wing. Force him to crash. Suicide him. And flee from his vehicle.

    They need to explain how a high risk for suicide got a gun and why he changed his M.O. Just how many other people he attempted to hurt in his previous attempts to off himself?

    I suppose the story will be that the ‘right wing’ talked him into killing others before he suicides, and went along for the ride, fleeing after the deed is done. But who did they target? Where is the surveillance video? Etc.

      Yep. Like I said above, Merkel was Agitation and Propaganda Ministerin in the DDR (the former East Germany), and, having a degree (as did her father) she had to have been a member of the Communist Party.

      This reeks of misdirection and “false flag”. The fact that the police were there almost instantly is because there was a planned demonstration by the Kurds, who always end up being confronted by the Turks and Antifa whenever they do a demo.

      In the German media, there is no real info (as usual); the alternative media (in particular the comments, often from people nearby and/or “in the know”) tell a rather different story.

      Consider that in Germany, gun ownership, though not impossible, is VERY difficult.
      Until 2015 or so, vehicles crashing into street cafes was unknown.
      Folks who are suicidal are referred to the “Psychiatrie” to prevent them from “going postal”.
      The only group for whom motorized (or jet-powered) vehicles are a weapon of choice are the Moslems… (cf almost daily attacks in Israel).

      Nope, they’ll give it a week or so, and let the truth dribble out. What is especially sad is that the victims and their families will probably get almost nothing; a stark contrast to the10-15 thousand euros PER MONTH spent on the refauxgees…

        That’s what I’m wondering, how did a suicidal German citizen with documented psychiatric problems get access to a gun? Somethin ain’t right here

      Wonder if it was rented, and by whom?
      Credit card receipt(s)?
      Middle-aged white-guy graphics designer can afford what looks to be a transporter that sells north of 80K Euros?
      Who are the “accomplices”?
      Why did they let the perp off himself?
      How much of a run-up did the perp have? Remember, this is in the “innenstadt” of an old city, not particularly friendly for folks who want to put the pedal to the metal…
      Why would the Polizei say/admit they were looking for explosives (especially after having found “something of interest” in the transporter)?
      There has to be surveillance footage too…

      Nope, there are too many questions, NO answers, and a lot of smoke and mirrors being deployed…

      In any case, GOD help the families of the victims, and help and heal the injured.

    My experience with AP and other legacy media is that they are lying about the attacker being a “German man”. But then AP only reported that he is “believed to be German”. Here in USA media report it’s a white-Hispanic when it more likely a black-Hispanic. Remember the media report on the “white woman” who shot up YouTube last week? She was actually of middle-eastern descent. She was from Iran.

      A certain Ulrich Klose on a news channel called nt-v is reported to have described the man as a “Passdeutsche” which means someone who is a German due to passport alone, implying that he was from somewhere else and simply had a German passport.
      Over in Europe we seem to have an increasing number of perpetrators who are described only as “the man” in news reports and match the pattern of a car-jihad or knife jihad perpetrator, but the police describe them as having “psychological problems”.

    The guy was 49 and a local, well known to the police who was a petty thief with psychological problems. At least that is what Die Welt and the FAZ are saying. Needless to say the German press are using this to bash those politicians who initially assumed it was a terrorist attack a la Nice.
    It doesn’t detract from the fact you should always be wary nowadays. I am sat in a hotel not 50 metres away from Königsallee where a group of Syrians were foiled by the German authorities in 2016 when they planned to attack it with automatic weapons and handgrenades.
    Welcome to 21st century Germany.

      Welt and FAZ lean left, sad to say, as do most of the German media. n-tv, mentioned by someone above, is more conservative.

      But Merkel and her admin have a stranglehold on the media here; just consider it “media matters” being run by the government itself…

      Schein oder sein… psychological problems is a big, big, bucket of excuses for governmental incompetence. And Mutti is only the last of a long line of scammers…

      This is how Most headlines of tragedies are writtn, nowadays. Focus away from the actual event, and focus on the dramztic, emotional aspects. Start looking for this, and start pondering why this is the case.

    That’s Germany’s problem. For however long as it takes them to figure it out. Honestly, when in the last 100 years hasn’t Germany been a problem to the world? Bad judgement, bad decisions, worldwide repercussions, deathly, egotistical, maniacal, etc. etc..

    Our problem is making sure their illegal aliens and refugees don’t make it here.
