Re: May 1st: Nutter in a car [video]

I guess he didn't realise the guy was under the front of the car, he slowed down when he entered the crowd and sped up when he thought he'd cleared them.

Typical BMW driver.

What an idiot.

I'd like to point out to the users who lamented that the Swiss media only ever mention the nationality of foreign criminals (the chainsaw attack thread comes to mind), that the suspect's nationality was mentioned several times in the news coverage.

That was entirely deliberate and premeditated, surely.

Re: May 1st: Nutter in a car [video]

I haven't seen any of the News reports on this, I've just seen the video. What a nutter.

But, I know that in previous years the "protestors" usually go hunting for up-market cars to set alight. Maybe this guy just panicked and tried to get away from a potential roasting.

I'm not saying he's right, or even if this was the case, but it may offer an explanation.

The crowd looked pretty calm to me... no need to rush to get away from them.
He should be glad he luckly didn't kill anyone. What kind of sentence is he going to get ?

Re: May 1st: Nutter in a car [video]

I read in the paper yesterday that the man driving blamed the car he said it had a malfunction, and there was nothing he could to stop the car from driving into the crowd Yes ok as if we will believe that.

Watching that video made my heart race, what an idiot

Today's Tages-Anzeiger reports that it was known among his work colleagues that he is a drug user. Could be slander or not, who knows.

In that case then, he's just a complete nutter. He might stand a better chance of getting let off with my version of events though

Re: May 1st: Nutter in a car [video]

How seriously injured is this fella, from the report it just says "seriously injured" i think, anyone got news on it?

The protesters are annoying for sure, but you wouldn't wish that on anyone to be honest, horrific.

From what I know is that the guy was in serious condition with injuries all over his body but that he was going to survive. That was on Friday or Saturday though, might have changed for the better or worse since then. It is amazing what you can live though, did you notice the streak he left behind on the end of the video? That freaked me out Just disturbing
