Last Friday a fireman was killed by culture-enrichers in the German city of Augsburg. While he was out for the evening with his wife, the fireman became involved in some sort of disagreement with a group of seven “youths”, most of whom had multiple citizenships — Turkish and Lebanese in addition to German. The seven culture-enrichers surrounded the unfortunate fireman, and he was felled by a single blow to the head. He died of his wounds with his wife looking on in horror.
The following videos and text reports give an account of what happened that night in Augsburg. Many thanks to MissPiggy for all the translations (video and text), and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

Germany: Seventh suspect arrested in connection with firefighter’s killing
A seventh suspect has been arrested over the death of a firefighter during an altercation in Augsburg according to police in the southern German city on Monday.
Gerhard Zintl, the leader of the Criminal Police Inspection, described how the police were able to identify the suspects using surveillance footage from the Christmas market, where the attack took place. He described how the man was “suddenly surrounded by these seven young men. Then there was a blow. The man fell to the ground,” before “the group went to the other, second man, who wanted to come to the aid of the first and subsequently fatal victim; and was attacked and also seriously injured on the face.”
The firefighter had been enjoying the evening at the Christmas market with his wife and friends before being attacked by a group of “seven young men.” He was fatally struck on the head before his friend tried to come to his aid and was also seriously injured. Police reportedly attempted to resuscitate the victim at the scene, but he died in the ambulance. The women were unharmed.
Details emerged regarding the suspects’ nationalities, of which six had dual German and Turkish nationality, one of the six had a third nationality (Lebanese) and the seventh had Italian nationality. Two of the suspects are 17 years old, including the main culprit, who was already known by the police for “assault.”
The seventh suspect was apprehended following an investigation and a manhunt. The police are not looking for any further suspects.
Over 100 firefighters paid their condolences at a vigil at the scene of the crime on Sunday.
Video #3 — Petr Bystron of the AfD attacked by Antifa while laying a wreath at the memorial for the fireman:
The accompanying notes from the original video:
Petr Bystron, member of the Bundestag and the Alternative for Germany in the state of Bavaria, visits the memorial for the murdered Fireman in Augsburg (also in Bavaria). He gets attacked by Antifa members physically and verbally. They damage the wreath he brought by ripping off the ribbons. The police treat him like the criminal, tell him to calm down and ask him to show his identification (for wanting to pay his respects).
Video transcript #1:
|00:02||The city of Augsburg is in mourning, and 150 firefighters|
|00:05||gathered to commemorate the death of their comrade.|
|00:08||Here at King’s Square is where the fireman was killed on Friday|
|00:12||in the middle of the pre-Christmas period,|
|00:15||for no apparent reason. There is bewilderment among the citizens of the city as well.|
|00:21||It makes me sad and angry, a combination of both,|
|00:25||simply because it was completely senseless what happened.|
|00:29||It could have been anyone, myself or my friends.|
|00:32||It could have been someone you know or someone from your family.|
|00:35||After visiting the Christmas market, the 49-year-old|
|00:38||was on his way home together with his wife and a couple they befriended.|
|00:42||That’s when they were involved in a fight with seven young men. At first only a verbal dispute,|
|00:46||it turned physical when suddenly one of the attackers hit the firefighter|
|00:50||and he fell to the ground. Before his wife’s eyes,|
|00:53||he later died from his serious injuries.|
|00:56||With help of the analysis of recordings from the surveillance cameras,|
|00:59||the police were able to identify the principal offender and make an arrest.|
|01:03||The principal offender is a 17-year-old citizen of Augsburg|
|01:07||who holds several nationalities. He was arrested early this afternoon|
|01:11||and is currently in police custody. —Another juvenile suspect was arrested as well.|
|01:15||The fireman’s exact cause of death|
|01:18||is still unclear. The wife is an important witness to the murder,|
|01:22||but she has not yet been able to give her eyewitness testimony|
|01:26||because she is severely traumatised by the event.

|00:00||Press Conference — The King’s Square Homicide in Augsburg — December 6, 2019|
|00:08||As I said, for some reason, the deceased victim had turned around.|
|00:15||The security video shows the group looking in that direction and making gestures.|
|00:22||The victim then approached the group and was suddenly surrounded by these seven young men.|
|00:32||After that the victim received a single blow and fell to the ground.|
|00:38||The group then moved further to the left, in the field of vision of the camera.|
|00:46||They approached the second man,|
|00:50||who wanted to come to the aid of the deceased victim and was attacked.|
|00:56||His face was seriously injured. The entire course of action only took a few seconds.|
|01:14||We have five (perpetrators) with German, six with German citizenship|
|01:18||and one with Italian citizenship.|
|01:22||Five of the perpetrators also have another nationality,|
|01:29||namely Turkish nationality, or the parents were Turks or are Turks.|
|01:38||One of them, as you know, also has Lebanese nationality.|
|01:50||The main perpetrator is 17 years old and, as you’re aware,|
|01:55||the minimum age of criminal responsibility is 14,|
|01:59||and from that point on, as a rule, criminal records|
|02:02||are held by the police. In his case, in recent years, he has been charged|
|02:06||with the typical juvenile offences. Among them,|
|02:09||as I previously mentioned, assault and battery charges are included.

|00:00||Don’t push me. Don’t push! No, I’m not coming. I’m going to stay here.|
|00:05||This place is for the family. Not them.|
|00:12||Today we brought a wreath to the square in Augsburg to commemorate|
|00:19||the fireman who was beaten to death here in front of his wife.|
|00:27||On our way here, we stopped at the Central Train Station in Munich where a police officer|
|00:35||was attacked this morning, cravenly stabbed with a knife from behind. Such events were unimaginable|
|00:44||a few years ago. Equally as horrible were the reactions|
|00:50||of Antifa members as we observed a moment of silence|
|00:55||in remembrance. They caused a disturbance and damaged the wreath we placed at the memorial.|
|01:00||It was ripped off. —OK. —They tore off the ribbons and hurled insults.|
|01:08||Are you a schmuck or what? You’re a real schmuck!|
|01:14||You’re an a*****e. This place is for the family. Not them.|
|01:22||Don’t push me. Don’t push! —Leave Mr. Bystrom alone.|
|01:25||Please give me… I am only asking for my property back,|
|01:29||that’s all. I’m not doing anything. Why are you approaching me?|
|01:32||Yes, yes. Cool down, OK? —These men were pushing me around, so why are you talking to me?|
|01:36||That’s why we’re here now. OK? —OK, good.|
|01:40||No, I’m not coming. I’m going to stay here. —Do you have identification?|
|01:45||I need to see your identification.|
|01:50||Come. Please come with us.|
|01:54||This is the colorful Germany. This is colorful Augsburg in 2019.
