During coverage of the Munich events, a video recording surfaced featuring what appeared to be the perpetrator on a rooftop in a shouted discussion with other people high up in a nearby building. Here is a transcript of what was said.
Perpetrator: Because of people like you I have been mobbed [harassed]. For seven years.
Man: You arsehole, you wanker.
Perpetrator: And now I need to buy weapons to shoot you down.
Man: Your head should be cut off, you arsehole. ...
Second man: Shit Turk.
Man: Shit wog. [briefly incomprehensible] He's got a gun, loaded. Get one of the cops. The wanker.
Perpetrator: I'm a German.
Man: You're a wanker, you. Perpetrator: Stop filming me!
Man: What makes you German then?
Perpetrator: I was born here.
Man: So? What kind of shit are you?
Perpetrator: I grew up here, in the Hartz-IV area [tn: Hartz IV is the German welfare system], in [incomprehensible]. I was getting treatment in Giesing.
Man: Yeah, treatment. You belong in a psychiatric centre, you arsehole.
Perpetrator: I haven't done anything. [...] Keep your mouth shut!
Man: You wanker, you. [To another person] Yes, he's running about here. He has a gun.Then shots are heard. The men making the video go into cover.
So two observers insulted the perpetrator as a "Shit Turk" and "Shit wog" and the establishment then claimed this was proof that the perpetrator was a right-wing European patriot!
It will be interesting to see whether the observers in this video are now prosecuted for their "racist language".
No doubt the incident will be officially classified as the work of yet another crazy person who just happened to be a Muslim: Nothing to Do With Islam.
UPDATE: I was correct. The German police are now classifying the perp as a "klassischer Amoktäter" [standard spree killer] with no political connection.
