Several dead as van crashes into crowd in Germany: the “mentally disturbed” gang strikes again!

Several dead as van crashes into crowd in Germany: the “mentally disturbed” gang strikes again! By AAP.

German police are probing the mental history of a 48-year-old German who ploughed a van into scores of people enjoying the first sunny day of spring in a busy open air cafe in the historic town of Münster, killing two and leaving another six fighting for their lives in hospital. …

The man then pulled a handgun and shot himself as shocked onlookers desperately attended to the most seriously hurt. …

While the attack bore the hallmarks of Islamic terror events across Europe, and coming on the first anniversary of a beer truck that rammed pedestrians in central Stockholm, killing five; police now believe the man was a German national with a history of mental illness.

Any time soon, even the police will sit up and take notice.

Mental health, lone wolf, nothing to do with Islam, blah blah blah. What’s his name, and when did he or his parents immigrate to the West?
