Thomas Salbey, 57, saw the shooting happening from his balcony in the Bavarian capital on July 22. In an attempt to stop 18 year old Ali Sonboly from further slaughtering people, he swore at the shooter as he was standing in a car park below. Sonboly shouted at him: “I am a German.” Footage of the feisty exchange went viral as thousands praised Mr Salbey for standing up to the deluded teenager.
The plucky German also hurled a beer bottle at the attacker in a desperate attempt to stop him. He said: “All I had was a beer bottle to throw at him, but if I had a gun I would have shot him in the head.”
Loner Sonboly had just shot dead nine people, mainly young teenagers he had lured to McDonald’s on the premise of free food.
So does Thomas get a medal? Not exactly…
Now, in a twist of German justice, Mr Salbey is now facing charges for standing up to the killer who shot himself in the head.
Florian Weinzierl, spokesman from the Munich State Prosecutor’s office, confirmed the Munich resident is being investigated. He said the post-shooting exchange between Mr Salbey and Sonboly had no influence on their actions. [Charges] could include “insults to the detriment of the dead.”
Those German bureaucrats, presumably trying to prove how worthy they are to the globalist elite, are bonkers! They are supposed to be public servants, serving the native Germans who pay their taxes.
Surely this cannot be true? I am starting to think that I belong to another time and planet.
