Two culture-enrichers got into an argument on the street in Stuttgart today, and one of them killed the other with a sword. In broad daylight, mind you, recorded by witnesses’ cell phones.
The perpetrator and the victim are rumored to be Kazakhs.
Vlad refers to the murder weapon as a machete, but it looks like a scimitar to me, based on the brief glimpse visible over the top of the car. In any case, you don’t stab with a machete, like this fellow does. You slash or chop.
If the perpetrator is convicted, I expect the German justice system to throw the book at him. He’ll probably be sentenced to sixteen months in the slammer, with no time off for good behavior. But no deportation afterwards, either — there’s no need for cruel and unusual punishment.

There’s more at Vlad’s place.
Here’s a brief account of the incident from Bild, also translated by Miss Piggy:
Stuttgart — Shock at Fasanenhof in Stuttgart. In the middle of the street a man (36) is killed — with a sword. Dozens of people are witnesses.
The first emergency call to the police arrived at 6.40 pm. At Europaplatz two men were arguing loudly.
Suddenly the incomprehensible: One of the men grabs a sword-like weapon, repeatedly stabbing his counterpart. The perpetrator flees on a bicycle. The victim remains lying on the street, covered in blood. The police arrive immediately, chasing the brutal killer with a helicopter, among other things.
The victim is said to be a German Kazakh. According to witnesses, the perpetrator kept shouting, “Why did you do this? And then he stabbed him.
Police spokesman Stefan Keilbach (57) on Wednesday evening: “We have arrested a person who is now being questioned as to whether he is a possible perpetrator.
|00:02||What? — He’s going to stab him.|
|00:05||He’s totally stabbing him!|
|00:12||Did you call the police? Call the police.|
|00:17||Did you? —Yes, that’s why [?]|
