New Terrorist Tactic?

Don't stand on the platform edge at a railway station.....

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...many-frankfurt

Boy dies after he and mother are pushed on train tracks in Germany

An eight-year-old boy has died after he and his mother were deliberately pushed on to train tracks at Frankfurt’s main railway station, German police have said. The boy was hit by a high-speed ICE train and killed instantly. His mother was able to roll into a safe gap between two platforms and escaped injury.

The suspect was chased through the station by passengers who tackled him to the ground. Police later confirmed a 40-year-old man had been arrested........

Police said the suspect is believed to be from Eritrea. He was being held in police custody on Monday but his possible motive remained unclear. The alleged perpetrator and the victims are not believed to have known each other.......

The incident follows the death of a 34-year-old woman nine days ago, who was pushed in front of a regional train in Voerde in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia in what is also believed to have been an unprovoked attack. The 28-year-old suspect, who was of Kosovo Serb origin and identified only as Jackson B, according to German police protocol, was known to police. He is being held in custody and is not thought to have known the victim.

Witnesses told police a man had approached the woman from behind without speaking and pushed her on to the track. The suspect has so far refused to answer questions.

Passengers waiting for trains in Germany are being advised to scan the platform for distressed or troubled faces and to stand at least two metres away from the platform edge.........

I was working maybe 900m from the incident today and heard the various police emergency services and the helicopter with no idea of what had happened. Frankfurt station is now a shithole, many of Merkel's new arrivals hang out there. It is heavily policed with a fleet of vans a police presence, but they can only do so much. I have witnessed various acts of aggression from the garbage there, attacking the small stalls and shops in the station. One guy, when asked to move by a female staff member, took his ***** out and waved it around at her, it now seems to be accepted as the norm.

The station toilets are down one level from the platforms, and you have to pay to use them, so be careful where you walk in and around the station both solid and liquid waste are evident as the dross will not pay to use them. preferring the free option.

RIP young man, what to way to go.

The TV news in on in my hotel bar, the incident was the 5th item and given a 5-second read, other stories, Green issues etc were given 2 min. No mention of the attacker just an incident.

I've been careful not to stand near the edge of a crowed platform for some years now. Not a new worry.

Not a new worry ? ... good for you .
Railway stations in major German and some other European cities are now loitering places for Merkels Millions and they are not nice believe me ! Why do these people want to replicate the living conditions in their countries of origin
is it really necessary to urinate and defecate on the floor of a public building .. homesickness perhaps ?

Pointed out to my wife that I always stand back to the wall in any station, particularly in London on the Tube. No need to introduce an anti immigrant/refugee/racist agenda.
Just the plain loony agenda.
I'm defensive every time I leave the house.

Not an anti-immigration agenda, immigration when controlled is good for any society but open borders and uncontrolled immigration is not. An eight-year-old died horrifically yesterday, and we seem to be now accepting this as the new normal. When Germany offers individuals the chance of a new life, a fresh start with welfare, housing and medical care and these actions are meet with shitting in public places and complete disrespect for the people who are helping.
Flying home from Frankfurt a few months back in T1 right beside the baggage check and automated boarding pass machines someone had done a large shit. I initially thought it was a dog but this was in a very public area and any dog would have been chased. What direction are we heading in if this is considered acceptable? The standard defence now seems to be - you a racist if you challenge this, it's not racism it questioning the behaviour of some.

Education, education, education....
Of course, there always will be lunatics no matter the skin’s color but education goes a long way.
So teach them instead of just parking them in “shelters” (easy to say)

The first line of police should be armed with sjamboks, the second with SMGs, the third with miniguns. Preferably all female.

I believe that when a prick meets a sjambok the latter wins.

Somewhat seriously thought.

I do not believe its education, it's 2019, these guys all process smartphones and have been steeped in western culture from popular films and TV, facebook, youtube, Instagram etc. In addition, they live in groups so their peers could even advise as to living in Germany. They collect their welfare and know the medical system. This is not a case of a lost Amazonian tribe being exposed to western culture for the first time.
The guy who pushed the child immediately ran away and he was pursued by members of the public, I suggest he knew his actions were wrong hence his rapid departure I wonder how the Germans will see this.

Such events only make it more difficult for those who come to genuinely integrate and make a go of their new lives, open borders do not work. We need to screen people and deport those who wish to harm us.

He has been described as an Asylum seeker living in Germany, not a tourist or someone on a business meeting.

He is resident in Switzerland, since 2006, with a residence permit in Zurich and family there.

Seems that way... We all know (don't we?) that sadly there is nothing new about people being pushed into the path of oncoming trains ..

A quick internet search reveals multiple instances of it happening in the UK, and the perps and victims have been from varying backgrounds....

First two I came up with:

One human pushes a mother and child in front of a moving train. Unacceptable behaviour in any country or society and should be equally punished anywhere on the planet.
