There's an ongoing shooting incident in Munich right now. The difference in news coverage is pretty sad. CNN MSNBC are reporting the tragedy in Munich. Fox is reporting how Trump would have prevented it how Trump will keep us safe at cetera. Disappointing even for Fox.

Multiple people shot, one dead, no details on shooter or weapon yet. Police investigating, shooter not caught or dead yet.

just a week after an asylum-seeker attacked passengers on a train with an axe. Boy I hope this does not become a pattern.

And this happened May 11th near Munich.

Munich knife attack: One dead after man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' attacks four at train station in Grafing, Germany
3 attacks, that almost one every two days, it;s an endemic.

Why lie?
I have been watching foxnews since the coverage started.
They were not talking about how Trump would have prevented it.

Dude i sat there and listened to fox on sirius 113 and 114 on the xm radio about 2 minutes before my post. I only took long enough to browse cnn and msnbc to get their tone before posting

You are mistaken or listening to a different slice of fox news.

Early reports in German language media is that this was perpetrated by neo-nazi's screaming about foreigners.

Considering the gunmen reportedly shouted "Fucking foreigners" and "I am German" you and Jeremy are looking like even more the racist assholes than usual.

The pace of these things is very disturbing. We've moved from a time span of years, to months, to weeks, to a matter of days between incidents. the coverage of most of this stuff feels like squirting lighter fluid onto the fire. Not sure how you can diffuse this situation but if you want to promote authoritarian big brother oversight and pogroms, we're on the right track.

We should keep blowing up children in the Middle East.

It's doing a great job at stamping out terrorism.

As I was commuting today it occurred to me that I hadn't seen the flag at anything but half-mast since Orlando.

Sad.

Got this from the CNN website - this is the only mention of possible motivations I've seen:

• A witness who will only be identified as Lauretta told CNN her son was in a bathroom with a shooter at the McDonald's. "That's where he loaded his weapon," she said. "I hear like an alarm and boom, boom, boom... And he's still killing the children. The children were sitting to ear. They can't run." Lauretta said she heard the gunman say, "Allahu Akbar," or God is great. "I know this because I'm Muslim. I hear this and I only cry."

And now there's this from The Guardian, so, who knows?

"A witness, Luan Zequiri, said he was at the scene when the shooting broke out near the McDonald’s restaurant.

He told the German broadcaster N-tv that he heard the attacker yell an anti-foreigner slur and “there was a really loud scream”.

He said he saw only one attacker, who was wearing boots and a backpack. Zequiri said: “I looked in his direction and he shot two people on the stairs.” Zequiri then hid and made his escape when the way was clear."

In the end, violence will beget violence. Much of this is a direct result of the decision of the US to invade Iraq by the Neo-Cons, and then the subsequent Democrat utter ineptitude to ensure the ill-begotten invasion didn't blow up in the West's face.
