Fucked up 2016...

Oh man...I just heard it on the news. But they don't know that much about it yet. Are there only crazy people on this planet?

For fuck's sake.

A man has reportedly been shot by police after attacking tens of people inside a passenger train near the city of Würzburg in the German state of Bavaria. A local broadcaster reports that up to 15 people have been injured.

Nahe Würzburg hat ein Mann in einem Regionalzug Reisende angegriffen lebensgefährlich verletzt. Der Täter attackierte die Fahrgäste mit Hieb- und Stichwaffen. Er wurde von der Polizei erschossen.

Laut Polizei wurden drei Menschen schwer verletzt, eine weitere Person leicht verletzt. Es gebe 14 weitere Betroffene, die sich im Zug aufgehalten hätten, aber nicht verletzt seien.

Horrible, I hope he didn't kill anybody on the train.

This is seriously terrifying.

I just heard on German news that the attacker was a 17 years old Afghan, presumably a refugee. No confirmation yet.

I don't know how a sole attacker could have injured so many. Was everyone just looking for Pokeman, oblivious to what was happening?!

Apparently not so many injured. 3 seriously, 1 mildly and fourteen treated for shock so not as bad as first thought.

Still horrible and sad though

I just read he was running away and was shot and killed by police.

Will we ever know his motives? We may never know.

What people? How can we stop people if we may never know their motives?

At this path we are all being anti refugees in less than a year. All these horrid news will bring a lot of harm to European openness.

Truth is that with two million refugees very very very few things have really happened and it shows that they are good people escaping from war or extreme poverty. But these news are going to the very brain of citizens and will have a big effect.

It was confirmed that Germany took in 2 Million refugees last year. And that is just the official numbers. The government/media ALWAYS gives out lower numbers. In 2 years they will say, opps, 5 million have been taken in.

in fact the minister of interior put out higher numbers first and had to correct them to a lower values, since some people didn't understand the German system and registered in several places, and the media doesn't always lie or omit thing. What we definitely know though is how much our beautiful new right wing party blalantly lies and scews thing - and later tell oh we didn't mean it that way - bad bad media.

Nach der brutalen Attacke eines 17-jährigen Afghanen auf Zugreisende in Bayern prüfen die Ermittler, ob es einen islamistischen Hintergrund gibt. Bei dem Täter ist eine IS-Flagge gefunden worden. Die Terror-Miliz beansprucht den Angriff bereits für sich - doch daran gibt es Zweifel.

Es wurde eine handgemalte IS-Flagge gefunden

Bei dem Angreifer, einem Jugendlichen aus Afghanistan, sei ein Text gefunden worden, der darauf hindeutet, dass sich der 17-Jährige "in letzter Zeit selbst radikalisiert hat", sagte Herrmann. Doch "das ist alles noch nicht erwiesen".

Der Text drehe sich um das Leben der Muslime, wonach diese sich zur Wehr setzen müssten. Auch ein Zeuge berichtete Hermann zufolge, der Täter habe bei seinen Attacken "Allahu akbar" ("Gott ist groß") gerufen.

The fact that "only" 20 people were injured - some of which really bad - does not diminish the brutality perpetrated by these fucking brainwashed cowards against unarmed civilians.

Very easy to target those who cannot defend themselves, so courageous.

Every time I commute on my morning train I am scared now.

What are you scared of? When did you become scared? These are intelligent questions that need to be asked.

Yes, I mean it's not as if it happened every day. A lightning may strike too.

To be fair many more people have been killed by a terrorist this year than a lightning strike. Also that's a freak accident in nature rather than being targeted simply for being yourself.

Maybe fear is present because people started blowing themselves up and shooting people both on public transportation and at random good time venues. Hot spot tourist visiting cities are now on high alert.

The act of a terrorist attack is not really comparable to natural disasters or even accidents. These are murderers out there willing to kill themselves and others for their ideology. It's tragic all around for humanity.

Well of course it depends if you live in Iraq or Syria but the odds of dying in a terrorist attack are really odd. According to this list is far more easy that you die while taking a shower or from a lightning strike indeed. Of course it's impossible to know the real odds but let's be realistic. I've been involved in two attacks: the London one and that crazy gunman in Oslo. In London I was about to take a bus to the City in Russell Square and in Oslo the first bomb was right next to my hotel. And which were the odds???? Others in the same trip maybe stumbled and hit their heads and died. You never know so it's absurd to feel irrational fear.

The thing is that irrational fear sooner or later translates into irrational decisions
