1. Another right-wing nut case destroying innocent lives.

I hate the Daily Mail, but they often have the most updated and thorough info on these kinds of things.

Anger as German synagogue shooter is able to live-stream his 35-minute attack to THOUSANDS of viewers on Amazon-owned Twitch before the site took the horrifying footage down

The gunman filmed himself shooting two people dead in an anti-Semitic attack
He streamed the footage live on Twitch and it stayed up for another 30 minutes
In that time more than 2,000 people viewed it on the Amazon-owned platform
The Counter Extremism Project said Amazon was 'just as much to blame'

2. This made local news yesterday. They caught the asshole with German efficiency and...

I trust they will convict him with equal efficiency.

Due to its past, anti-Semitism is serious business in German law. No freedom of speech for that, and murder, of course, makes it worse.

4. Don't be so sure.

German court rules that firebombing a synagogue is not anti-Semitic

A synagogue burning in Germany is perhaps among the most literal illustrations of anti-Semitism imaginable.

But apparently, not all synagogue burnings are equal.

This week a German regional court ruled that the 2014 firebombing of a synagogue in Wuppertal, a region just east of Düsseldorf, was an act of criminal arson, but not anti-Semitic. Instead, the court found it was a protest against Israel, even though the synagogue was obviously not in Israel and those who worship there are Jews, not Israelis.

The decision upheld that of a lower court, which stated the perpetrators, a trio of Palestinian-born German residents, wanted to “call attention to the Gaza conflict” when they prepared and then lobbed Molotov cocktails at the synagogue one July night in 2014. No one was injured, but the attack caused €800 in damages. The men were ultimately given suspended sentences.
