German prosecutors are investigating a suspected neo-Nazi cell within the Frankfurt police force that is thought to have sent a German-Turkish lawyer a message threatening to kill her two-year-old daughter.

Five police officers – four men and a woman – have been suspended on suspicion of exchanging far-right and racist messages in a chat group and sending the note to the lawyer, Seda Basay-Yildiz, this summer.

That's a hit, so it could be for any number of reasons.

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Shouldn't we let the German police deal with it and make their own investigations? I think that at this point it's too early to speculate in regards with who and why did it. Contrary to the common perceptions, Germany is still a civilised place where human life counts, and the police will try to find the criminals. I, for one, am tired of these speculations and theories the media is always throwing at us without much info. And yes, your assumption could be the correct one, but still. Nobody knows for sure yet.

What speculation or theory has the media or anybody else been spreading about this particular incident?

Have I missed something?

"Far-right so he had it coming"...pretty clear, no?

I think Loz is quite convinced that the ugly incident was politically motivated so he must have read something. My interpretation (of his link) is that this is only a hypothesis, till they will catch the perpetrators it remains so.

If you go back and read that again but with your irony detector switched on you will maybe come to a different conclusion.

In Switzerland left-wing motivated acts of violence are more common than right-wing.

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

German police and prosecutors have questioned some of the claims made by a rightwing populist politician who suffered an attack that left him with serious head injuries.

Police say video footage casts doubt on assertions by Frank Magnitz.

Hopefully the video footage will help to identify the attacker.

No evidence of the assault weapon claimed by Magnitz, it appears that he lied about being kicked and beaten on the ground, and there is no evidence to back Magnitz' widely-touted claim that he was the victim of a politically-motivated assassination attempt.

Well, this is awkward, isn't it, Loz?

How is it awkward? The guy has taken a severe blow to the head, given that plus the trauma of the incident, it is possible that he can't remember exactly what occurred. It doesn't change the outcome.

p.s. read the article again, "But police, who have described the attack as “politically motivated”"

Whatever the truth is, if he’s not taking the opportunity to make as much political hay from it to maximise their agenda, is he even a politician?

It seems to be an odd medical phenomenon in Germany that people suffer random injuries and even death when attacked, without those injuries having any connection to the entirely peaceful and benevolent attack.

I suspect "police had described the attack as 'politically motivated'" might be more accurate, when they were simply parroting what Magnitz said. Their latest statements show that they have no idea who assaulted him, nor the motive. Did the assailant (it seems there was only one, now) wear a party rosette, or shout political slogans while attacking?

Awkward, Loz, that you jumped to conclusions and were very possibly wrong again.

Oh, so it's awkward for me now? I've not jumped to any conclusions, read back and you'll see that. Keep on digging pal.
