German Judge Forces Anti-Immigrant AFD Party Members to Notify Landlords of Membership to Party
a landlord in gottingen was able to cancel the lease of the afd youth organization state chair because he was a potential (in fact an actual) target of political violence
In March, the car of the 24-year-old, who had parked there at the edge of the road, went up in flames in front of the house. The heat also damaged another car and a nearby balcony railing. The court pointed out that similar incidents had already occurred at his former home address in Göttingen.

I happened to follow some links which took me to
2011 Frankfurt Airport shooting

if you recall, a jihadist walked up to a bus full of US airmen and opened fire, killing 2 and wounding 2
Arid Uka, the 21-year-old perpetrator, is an ethnic Albanian born in Kosovo who had lived in Germany since he was one year old; his family had been living in the country for four decades.
(snip)
On 10 February 2012, the Hessian State Superior Court (Oberlandesgericht Frankfurt am Main) sentenced Uka to life imprisonment with the determination of an "exceptional gravity of guilt", which means that he will not be eligible for parole after having served fifteen years. Because he was sentenced to more than three years imprisonment, he will be deported to Kosovo after having served his sentence since he does not hold German citizenship.
I guess they don't have "sanctuary cities" in Germany.

German man fined $258,000 for cheating at self-service till
Munich's district court convicted the 58-year-old businessman of theft for trying to pass off 47 euros-worth of veal liver as cheaper fruit.
The man, who wasn't identified, had done the same thing three times before and also had past convictions for theft and tax evasion.
The court based the high fine on the man's monthly income of 24,000 euros. He was released from jail, where he had been held since the theft in December.
they're tough on shoplifters in germany, what's that 2 months in jail and fined a year's salary for stealing. But not as tough as the saudis etc who cut your hands off

Another attack with a car or something?
At least 3 killed, dozens injured as van drives into crowd in Münster
three dead, plus the driver shot himself afterwards (so 4 dead including the driver)

Münster is a medieval university town of 300,000 just north of Dortmund

No word on who did this, or why

I always thought Munster cheese came from there, but evidently that's Munster in Alsace.

>> the driver was a German man with a long history of psychological issues.
