It's Friday so inevitably: knife attack in Germany, 12 injured

Recommended Posts

Up to 12 people have reportedly been injured in a knife attack in the northern German city of Luebek, local media reports. Police have confirmed the incident, adding that a large operation is underway.

The incident happened in Luebek’s district of Kuecknitz, a German regional police department said in a Twitter post. According to local media, a lone-wolf attacked bus passengers with a knife.

“The passengers jumped out of the bus and screamed, it was terrible, and then the injured were taken away,” an eyewitness named Lothar, who lives next to the scene, told Luebecker Nachrichten.

According the man, the suspect had a knife.

Just done a news search, top 3 fastest reports in age order oldest or first report first.

1.  https://www.rt.com/news/433800-germany-police-luebeck-injured/

2.  http://www.arabnews.com/node/1342266/world

3.  http://zeenews.india.com/world/several-people-injured-after-suspected-knife-attack-on-german-bus-reports-2126303.html

Out of curiosity BBC leads their article with the title 'Several wounded' in stabbing on German bus', if you then open it up the first line of the report states 'Fourteen people have been wounded, some seriously, in a knife attack on a bus in the German city of Luebeck'.

So the title tries to play it down but since when has several been fourteen!

Thats a 50% level of casualty reduction in their reporting.

I fully agree that several does not suggest fourteen and I would also ask why they have placed 'Several wounded' in quotes; this suggests that the fact is in doubt and they are therefore quoting it rather than stating it.

But they're not actually quoting anybody.  Nobody is saying "several"; the police are saying two seriously wounded and twelve further wounded.

It's both irritating and yet another example of their attempting to massage the news to fit their own agenda.

 

On their news homepage this is relegated to a sidebar story, despite being very recent, with the "big" stories with photos being:

  • Brexit (something negative presumably, I'm not reading it)
  • Incredulity as Trump invites Putin to US (and we all know that if had Obama invited him this would be being hailed as a diplomatic triumph)
  • Biker rides at 189mph
  • Car jacking baby returned
  • Wanted: inspiring name for Mars Rover
  • Russia fears hypersonic missile spying

Update from RT: https://www.rt.com/news/433800-germany-police-luebeck-injured/

2 seiously injured, the rest light. 30 year old Iranian origin man arrested.

Iranian is a surprise but a quick glance at wiki shows:

 
List of ethnicities

 

So there's a lot of non-Persians there and I would lay money it's one of the minority groups.

I agree, it seems unlikely it was a Persian, from my experience they tend to be very pleasant people.

Anyone know if the police increase patrols on Fridays ? 

Or would that be racist ?

You fell into the trap there as Religion has nothing to do with Race it is a Mental issue due to third party programming.

Remember kids cannot choose their parents and they don't need a licence to breed.

TBH British police have always been busier on Friday and Saturdays (As have A&E) because of our love of drinking and getting shit faced and fighting.

They are tying themselves up in knots trying to flag these flags correctly.

 

At least the Coventry Telegraph has a wider perspective, unlike BBC which focused on anti-Islamic hate crimes.

 

" There were examples of flags not being used when they should have been, the wrong flags being applied, or flags being used "without any apparent justification".

Figures showed that more than 3,000 recorded racially or religiously aggravated offences were not flagged as hate crimes.

In one force, an audit of 700 hate crimes showed that as many as half of the religious flags should have been recorded as race. "

That's what's daft about so called hate crime because virtually all crime in some way strikes at the heart of who you are.
