Man Complained About the Noise

Child (12) attacks passenger with emergency hammer

Dresden — Brutal attack on a passenger (36) in a Dresden bus. A 36-year-old man had boarded a bus in Dresden-Gruna at about 10.30 p.m. and complained about a group of noisy children and teenagers. Police spokesman Marko Laske (45): “The man asked the group to be a little quieter. A 12-year-old boy then hit him on the head with an emergency hammer.”

The man suffered a head wound and had to be treated at an emergency room. The police assume that the hammer was stolen on the bus by the Afghan-born boy shortly before the crime. Although the crime happened last Friday, it was not reported in the police report. Laske: “The reason in this case is the particularly protection-worthy interest of the criminal child.” The police will investigate the case, but the perpetrator gets away with it.

  1. Your news is very filtered. Perhaps the whole point is my poor knowledge of English and a complete lack of knowledge of German, but I can not find detailed information about the origin of the boy.
    The Russian press also does not always write details. But I always manage to find an indirect link or comment about the culprit within half an hour.

  2. If I Had A Hammer by Trini Lopez

    If I had a hammer
    I’d hammer in the morning
    I’d hammer in the evening
    All over this land
    I’d hammer out danger
    I’d hammer out a warning
    I’d hammer out love between
    My brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    If I had a bell
    I’d ring it in the morning
    I’d ring it in the evening
    All over this land
    I’d ring out danger
    I’d ring out a warning
    I’d ring out love between
    My brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    If I had a song
    I’d sing it in the morning
    I’d sing it in the evening
    All over this land
    I’d sing out danger
    I’d sing out a warning
    I’d sing out love between
    My brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.

    I got a hammer
    And I got a bell
    And I got a song to sing
    All over this land
    It’s the hammer of justice
    It’s the bell of freedom
    It’s the song about love between
    My brothers and my sisters
    All over this land.
