“The Victim Was in the Wrong Place At the Wrong Time”

The following report from Germany concerns an incident of culturally enriched ultra-violence in Germany, in which the victim was almost killed, and the perpetrators received either a slap on the wrist or no punishment at all at the hands of German “justice”.

Many thanks to JLH for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

“The Victim Was in the Wrong Place At the Wrong Time”

During the night of September 27-28, 2014, a party took place in the Weser-Ems Hall in Oldenburg, parallel to the Kramermarkt (fairgrounds). In the view of the chair of the assize court in Oldenburg, Sebastian Bührmann, a 25-year-old German visitor to the area, who happened to be in Europa Square, directly in front of the hall, was “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Just before 4:40 AM, the leader of a group of four or five “southerners” [1] that had traveled here from Wilhelmshaven, decided: “Now we beat the crap out of a German.?” No sooner said than done.

The group — whose nationality was not revealed by the media — found and surrounded that 25-year-old. The motive and the course of events are established by witnesses. On February 10, 2014, NWZ-online reports:

After the 25-year-old had left the party, he was surround by 4-5 men. They knocked him down and kicked his head severely. They did not stop even when he lost consciousness. He suffered the most severe injuries to his head and face. Police estimate that he would not have survived without the help of third parties. Two witnesses rushed to his aid. These two men too, were beaten by the perpetrators. The attackers only fled when security personnel from the hall rushed to the scene.

On May 5, 2015, NWZ [Nordwest Zeitung] reports at the beginning of the trial:

Among other injuries, the 25-year-old had severely broken facial bones. His injuries were so severe that he had to be put into an induced coma… If the accused had not been interrupted and drawn away from him, he would have died. That was the gist of the charge.

In a July 3, 2015 article in NWZ regarding the publication of the verdict:

A witness had heard the group decide: “Now we’ll beat the crap out of a German”… The defendant knocked the victim down with one blow, rammed his knee into his face and gave him a powerful kick in the head. Witnesses were horrified by the brutality… The victim suffered 19 bone-breaks and was put into an induced coma. He had undergone many operations, and more would follow.

The only description of the victim in the July 3rd article was:

The victim indicated he had some martial arts training, but he did not know that the defendant was a professional boxer.

And with that, we know more about the perpetrator than the victim: A “southern” pro boxer from Wilhelmshaven, on the road with his buddies/brothers/cousins, to “beat the crap out of Germans”.

What about the victim? Can he still pursue his profession? Can he still play sports? Is it possible that his health is permanently damaged? Is he deeply traumatized? Does he have any family? Could he still be in a coma? There is apparently no joint plaintiff in the trial.

We do know something about the efforts to throw light on the incident. Thanks to witnesses, the perpetrators were discovered, but then the work of the investigation has to be repeated for the court:

The court has access to cellphone videos which show this group at a filling station. Analysis of the pictures could help to match different articles of clothing to individual members of the group… Among other things, it is expected that witnesses will be able to determine the alleged criminal acts of the accused from the articles of clothing… At the request of the defense, the shoes the defendant is said to have been wearing at the time are being examined. If he kicked the 25-year-old’s bloody face, there would have to be blood traces on the shoes.

The incident occurred at the end of September and the trial started at the beginning of May. Up until that time, the clothing of the criminal suspects had apparently not even been examined for trace evidence. It seems that just as little effort has gone into a reconstruction of the incident, using the available pictures and witnesses. And this in an investigation connected to an attempted murder!

So the prosecution was unable to prove the participation of each individual member of the group. Only the leader was convicted. And in fact, not in accordance with the charge, which was attempted murder. Instead, it was “grievous bodily harm.”

How can that be?

It certainly did not stop at wanting to “beat the crap out” of someone. The whole episode testifies to an unbridled lust to kill:

Two witnesses rushed to help the injured man. But the perpetrators beat these men too. Only when security personnel from the hall ran up, did the attackers run away.

In the estimation of the police, he would not have survived without the help of third parties.

And motives for murder are recognizable. A random victim and the joy of extinguishing a human life out of pure boredom and swagger fulfill the requirements of “bloodlust.” It is not difficult to identify hatred of Germans among other base motives.

The charge should have read attempted murder. Attempted murder is punished with lifelong imprisonment. But the professional boxer was given five years.

The court evaluated the act as grievous bodily harm. The prosecution had asked for 6½ years — for attempted murder.

The sentence for grievous bodily harm is ten years, given if the victim is injured with weapons, or by a deceptive attack or the attacker is accompanied by other participants! In this case, no latitude for leniency is to be found. There are not even any confessions.

German courts regularly ignore the feet as dangerous weapons. For Judge Bührmann to jail you any longer than this, you would have to literally kick someone to death. Or be carrying a firearm, which Judge Bührmann simply could not ignore.

The criterion for committing a crime together was also avoided, apparently because of insufficient investigation by the prosecutor’s office.

It makes you wonder what it would take to qualify for the full sentence.

Aside from that: Was it taken into consideration that the pack leader is a pro boxer? As a matter of course, martial artists who are accosted by muggers or what-are-you-looking-at? tough guys and break a few of the aggressor’s bones, are issued criminal complaints. For that reason, the 25-year-old warned the southerners of his training, as is taught in any serious martial arts school. Accordingly, the technical fighting capabilities of the southern battle group should have been taken into consideration.

And, as so often in trials dealing with groups leading kicking attacks, it got down to nitpicking.

The defendant denies delivering the decisive kicks to the victim’s head.

It is reminiscent of Jonny K. and Daniel Seifert. [2]

Additionally, because of its serious consequences, the crime could be evaluated as “grievous bodily harm,” thus increasing the sentence. [3]

Instead of regular sentencing for attempted murder (25 years), attempted manslaughter (15 years), premeditated, cooperatively inflicted dangerous and grievous bodily harm (10 years +), we have a Mickey Mouse decision with no visible mitigating circumstances. The other perpetrators walk free, apparently without even community service. What a great judge! And the prosecution is no better…

Because of ignorance or obviously sloppy investigative work, the prosecution had difficulty in making a watertight case against the gang of “southerners” for cooperative commission of the crime, and the accomplices all walked. The judge is “excluding nothing” but is punishing only one person.

The court did not exclude the possibility that others had also kicked the unconscious man’s head.

So what is being said to justify this hair-raising decision? The talk is about just one perpetrator, and he really couldn’t help it.

“The perpetrator was overwrought and highly intoxicated,” said lead justice, Sebastian Bührmann to NWZ on Thursday. “We are assuming a momentary breakdown.”

The act occurred “in the moment” said Bührmann. “Too short a time to form the decision to kill.”

In the court’s opinion, the defendant wanted to prove himself. With friends who also had “southern roots,” he had traveled from Wilhelmshaven to the Kramermarkt.

In the court’s opinion, the victim was just “at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The lead judge, Sebastian Bührmann, was probably also at the wrong pace at the wrong time, as it is easy to see from this rationale. Was the judge perhaps overwrought and intoxicated? Is this a case of momentary breakdown, too brief to conclude a breach of the law? Did the judge wish to prove something to his friends? Did he, on this day of all days, cancel out his own grandiloquent claim, [4] “My courtroom is not known for lenient decisions”?

The verdict is not yet legally final.


1.   Usually = Southern or Mediterranean European, but may also, less frequently, extend further south to the Middle East.
2.   Similar notorious attacks with (Turkish) perpetrators escaping or given equally lenient sentences.
3.   At this point, the article inserts a quotation from the criminal code:

Penal Code

§ 224 Grievous Bodily Harm

(1)   Whoever causes bodily harm
(2)   Should the perpetrator purposely or consciously cause a result described in section 1, it shall be not less than 3 years.
(3)   in less severe cases of section 1, 6 months to 5 years; in less severe instances of section 2, 1 to 10 years.
1.   through use of poison or other harmful substances,
2.   by means of a weapon or other dangerous implement,
3.   by deceitful attack,
4.   together with another participant,
5.   by a life-threatening action

will be imprisoned for 6 months to 10 years, in less serious cases, 3 months to 5 years. The attempt itself is punishable.

Penal Code

§ 226 Grievous bodily harm

If the result of the bodily injury is that the injured party

1.   loses vision in one or both eyes, hearing or fertility,
2.   loses a limb or permanently the use of such,
3.   is seriously and permanently disfigured,

punishment shall be 1 to 10 years in prison.

4.   Before the 2011 trial of bikers on attempted manslaughter charges, which ended in a decision of “grievous bodily harm.”

  1. Is the judge being blackmailed? Intimidated? Suborned?
    What about the police? Failing to examine the clothing of the perpetrators sounds hideously like the Rotherham police’s “losing” the clothing of a rape victim.
    Before our eyes our culture is eroded and dismantled.

    “Now we’ll beat the crap out of a German” denotes joint purpose. For “German” read “infidel”: Islam commands the killing of infidels.

  2. So, basically, it was all the victim’s fault? Germany is totally crazy these days, or at least their legal system is.

    • It’s just neo-Marxism, Marxism with a more flexible definition of “enemy class”.

      The “enemy class” is always at fault, even if they’re being shot or beaten to death.

  3. Quote:

    “In the view of the chair of the assize court in Oldenburg, Sebastian Bührmann, a 25-year-old German visitor to the area, who happened to be in Europa Square, directly in front of the hall, was “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

    This suggests that the “chair of the assize court in Oldenburg”, one Judge Bührmann, has legally established yet another ‘no go zone’ & ‘no go time’ by setting this precedent.

    Judge Bührmann characterization of “southerners” (aka cultural enrichers) are essentially provided a court accepted “place” and “time” appropriate for violent barbaric behaviors such as quoted above:

    “Now we beat the crap out of a German.?”

  4. Reading those comments in German (I can understand a good bit of German) is uncannily similar to what I read on English language sites. They lament the injustice, curse the authorities, feel themselves always in the wrong place and are convinced these perpetrators were Turks.

    The pot everywhere is beginning to bubble…

  5. If the victim had neen carrying a 9mm, he’d have been able to shoot, shovel amd shutup… and he wouldn’t have been a beating victim.

    The day is gonna come when Europeans are going to perform a quick calculation, declare themselves aboriginal, and start carrying… The mext stop on that line… is Bosnia.

  6. I am angry.

    When the german state prosecuted the left wing terrorists of the RAF he could not link certein crimes to certain terrorists. So the stat used the accusation of “communal committed crimes” aka “gemeinschaftlich begangene Straftat” to prosecute them.

    The same law is now used against the so called NSU and only surviving member Beate Zschaepe.

    But this accusation is never used against our multicultural “friends”. In their cases it is demanded that the individual guilt is proven.

    Does anybody smell a rat?

  7. Sounds similar to the vicious attack by Bangladeshi youths, a so-called Sharia patrol, on an American student;
    Scotland Yard said the attack was not classed as a hate crime as they believed Mr Hounye was targeted simply because he was “obviously not local”.
    Imagine a gang of white youths beating the hell out of Bangladeshi student, do you think pc Cops would say the same?

    Exceptionalism and multikutli inequality before the law is unsustainable- at some point it’s all going to come tumbling down.
    Is anyone running a book on the first EUropeon state to implode?- Sweden has to be among the favourites.

    • I remember that video. I posted a link to it on a well known martial-arts website and was excoriated and banned for it.

      I always thought it was odd that the martial arts scene was populated by so many PC/MC weenies and pot heads who had phobias about guns, blades and a refusal to acknowledge that many cultural enrichers were the cause of criminality.

      “Exceptionalism and multikutli inequality before the law is unsustainable.”

      It’s only unsustainable if the people collectively resist and reject it and tell the judges to drown themselves.

      I don’t see it happening. Maybe if the body count goes real high say like the tens of thousands every year being slain by Muslims. It might wake people up enough to pull themselves away from Dancing with the Stars or Caitlyn Jenner.

  8. I’m sad for the victim and his family.

    The question again comes up of whether horrendous work by the police and courts in protecting the community from violent predators is a random display of incompetence (Occam’s Razor) or the result of a systematic penetration of the political and administrative apparatus by Islamic organizations posing as community groups.

    I tend to go with the explanation of the penetration of groups: the Islamic influences in political groups, especially the funding of politicians. There were reports early in the grooming scandals that the police not only ignored the grooming gangs, but were on good terms with them.

    This is a flaw in representative government that was recognized very early: the inordinate influence of cohesive interest groups as opposed to the more diffuse interests of the citizens as a whole. After a while, it becomes obvious to the police and courts that almost any action at all against a Muslim will involve protests and hassle in general. It’s analogous to the situation in the US, where almost any police action against a black will trigger protests, publicity, and a federal investigation.

    I’m preaching to the choir here, but this is an illustration of why Muslim immigration is so dangerous: as much for the corruption of formal social structure as for the danger of violent actions.
