    I've not seen it mentioned yet but just recently it was reported that there have been shots fired and persons killed in Germany. Munich is where I heard there have been as many as 15 killed. Authorities believe there were multiple persons involved in this action. A mall is what's being reported as a place of concern. Shots at multiple places is said to be reported as well. I'm sure there will be much more information very soon.

    It appears there are six dead at least.

    Daily Mail

    Witnesses said that the gunman screamed 'I'm German' and 'f*** foreigners' before shooting at children.

    Al Jazeera is reporting 9 dead...one being a shooter.

    I guess due to the fact of turmoil all over the world because of migrants, this creates friction everywhere; this may eventually lead to civil wars. The enormous influx in Europe of refugees and the burden on governments to provide for them has of course an huge negative effect on the economy , housing, food, healthcare etc. They have no money, pay no taxes so they only cost money. Previous influx of Turks, Marroccans was an planned immigration after the war to help to rebuilt the country. However that is not the case now; especially the African refugees have no skills whatsoever which fits the German culture. Thus the problem is getting only bigger, because the flood of refugees keeps on coming; in an big part due to our wars and wrong foreign policies.

    Dutch, Perhaps I heard wrong but I believe the news said the kid was born and raised in Germany. His family origin is said to be Iran but every-bodies ancestors were born somewhere. The guy seemed crazy but don't just reach into the easy explanation.

    Why do we have to ascribe this madman to a certain group or sect, why can't he be just a nut job that looked for a reason to go off and kill people, is it so important to know this almost immediately even at the risk of alienating some people to the point of retaliating against the group that might have had nothing to do with it.

    Tony, it is just like here, certain cultures can't stand others. Ex-People from Iran still don't like Turks, just like Trump does not like Muslims. There are plenty of Turks and Marroccans in The Netherlands, but no one likes them either down there.

    The killer was born and raised in Germany.......... He's/was German. I agree that this time has people hating those who aren't just like themselves...... Luckily not all people think that way because that's a low shallow approach. By those standards, the only True Americans are Native American Indians. Everyone else is or was an immigrant. I think a huge number of people are insecure and afraid. Sadly many of those are well armed as well. There are many problems and there will be many more. Trying to solve problems with guns is a proven recipe for failure. Trying to live by hate is a major problem as well.
