THE ERITREAN SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN IN EUROPE

By Pete Moore On July 29th, 2019

An eight-year-old boy died and his mother was injured when a man pushed them in front of a high speed train at Frankfurt railway station in Germany.

An Eritrean man has been arrested over the attack, which happened on Monday morning.

Witnesses said the man deliberately pushed the boy and his mother on to the tracks before trying to run away. He was chased and stopped by passers-by.

The 40-year-old suspect attempted to push a third person but failed.

  1. The mother also fell in front of the train, was able to scramble out but unfortunately unable to rescue the child.

    There was very similar murder in another town just last week. A Serb immigrant pushed a women standing on the platform in front of an incoming express train and she was killed.

    I heard two police criminologists “analysing” these crimes:

    “Very often the motivation develops out of a sense of frustration, anger, fear or a sense of having lost everything. This leads to a feeling of powerlessness. The act of violence transforms this powerlessness into a feeling of omnipotence. This can happen in a fraction of a second; the mood switches and an attack is triggered.”

    Good grief.

    And another:

    “It’s precisely when a particular method is very easy to carry out and at the same time generates enormous publicity that it appears so attractive to people planning an attack. The person planning the murder can be almost certain that his victime will die and he will achieve his aim.”

    Yes, we have people like that among us.

    Maybe the fact that you need to be a sub human evil bastard to push a human being in front of a train is too simplistic an explanation?

  3. I have to say that since living in London in the mid eighties it’s always been a sub concious reaction of mine to stand well back anytime I’m on a train platform.

  4. Paul.

    I will stand as close to the edge of the platform as I can, after somebody told me that doing that is dangerous as it could result in the train sucking me off. 😁

  5. I’m sure Colm wil be keen to take your advice Dave 😉

  6. I have tried it many times, but only to be disappointed. The trains were very fussy 😉

    Paul, you definitely have some right-wing in ya mate!

  8. Charles, you don’t need to be right / left / centerist to recognise that any animal that pushes any living thing, much less a human being in front of a moving train is an evil bastard.

    I suppose most here would call me a lefty / liberal or something but the truth is that while my general political outlook could probably be very loosely pigeon holed into the democratic socialist ideaology, (that’s a Screaming red Commie in the US), the truth is I tend to react to individual situations based on the merits of the situation rather than some narroW ideaology.

    For example, if I find an unwelcome visitor in my home I’m going to nullify the treat with whatever means I have and ask questions later and I think most people, left / right / centerist would do the same.

    I always do that, consciously, and I take trains all the time.

    What if you black out, what if there is a crazy person.

    I used to get the train to school, and one evening when I was getting the train home a woman waiting for the train fainted and fell onto the tracks. I jumped down and the man on the platform opposite jumped down and very bravely hopped over the two electrified rails, and between us we lifted the woman back onto the platform.
    The outcome would not have been so good, if she had fainted as a train had been arriving at the station.

  11. Good man

    That’s exactly what I’m talking about

  12. Good man Dave.
