Boy Who Killed Teacher, Shot 6 Others in Mexico School May Have Been Influenced by Video Game: Official

An 11-year-old student opened fire with two guns on his teachers and classmates in a school in northern Mexico Friday, killing a teacher and wounding six other people before taking his own life, authorities said.

Coahuila state Gov. Miguel Angel Riquelme said the preliminary investigation showed the 6th-grader arrived at his classroom in the city of Torreon, told a classmate, “Today is the day” and asked permission to go to the bathroom.

After 15 minutes, when he had not returned, his teacher went to look for him. He emerged from the bathroom firing the guns. The shooting ended when he shot himself, Riquelme said.

Among the wounded were five students and a gym teacher, Riquelme said. None of the injuries were life-threatening, and some victims were expected to be released from hospitals soon.

School shootings are rare in Mexico. Friday's shooting was reminiscent of another in January 2017 in the northern city of Monterrey. In that case, a student opened fire in a private high school. He killed a teacher and wounded two students. The shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The governor said the 11-year-old in the Torreon shooting lived with his grandparents and that his mother had died some years ago. He said the boy had not presented behavioral problems before in the school. Investigators were looking into reports the boy was influenced by a particular video game.

Images from the scene showed worried parents arriving at Colegio Cervantes to pick up their children Friday. It is a private school in downtown Torreon across the street from a large park.

Danya Mendizabal, whose daughter is in 4th grade at Colegio Cervantes, said she was initially alerted by a chat of student mothers. She called the school but no one answered. Then she called a teacher who told her that her daughter was fine and she should come get her.

Mendizabal said her daughter was in her classroom in another part of the school and did not know what had happened. “They managed it well because the teachers were very calm,” she said.

She said she never imagined anything like it could happen at the school.

“Colegio Cervantes has always distinguished itself as a very safe school of middle class kids,” she said.

The school participates in a state program called “Safe Backpack” in which school personnel search each child's backpack when they arrive at school, she said.

Torreon is an industrial city with foreign assembly plants.

In Hanau, Germany near Frankfurt a man (Tobias Rathjen) killed 11 people. According to German news he was banker and 9/11 changed his life, and he was into conspiracy theories.


Here is a video he released earlier (maybe some years) and just under his name:

The suspected gunman who carried out an attack on two shisha bars in Hanau, Germany, posted a disturbing “personal message” online. The interior minister said the alleged attacker, Tobias Rathjen, had a xenophobic motive. He killed nine people and seriously injured five in the German town 25 kilometres east of Frankfurt. He was later found dead at his home, along with the body of his 72-year-old mother. German authorities are treating the incident as an act of domestic terrorism.

His statement (what there is of it) seems specifically directed towards the United States Pedo-Elite ring. Has anyone heard the whole video? Is it called a "xenophobic motive" because he shot people in Hookah bars?

Dead men don't tell tales.

German "anti-fascist" propagandists must be having a field day. A "xenophobic" German going on a shooting spree...
Has he been radicalized by right-wing bloggers or is he an innate racist (as so many Germans are alleged to be)?
Or did he have a schizophrenic disorder intensified by drugs and alcohol?

No doubt gun laws will be tightened, free speech be curtailed and the migrant victim theory emphasized.

I think it's far too early to speculate about him being an intelligence community patsy.

Is it called a "xenophobic motive" because he shot people in Hookah bars?
The city of Hanau is said to have a remarkable 40% of residents from a migrant background
comprising 150 ethnicities or nationalities. If you're visiting a hookah bar there, chances are you're right in the middle of migrants or foreigners.

I'm sorry that I actually didn't answer your question, Debra.

Another incident in Germany couple of hours ago.


AT least 30 people, including small children, have been injured, some of them seriously, after a car ploughed "full throttle" into a carnival crowd in Germany.

A silver Mercedes station wagon drove into the crowd at 2.30pm local time (1.30pm GMT) this afternoon during a procession in Volkmarsen, a town in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district in northern Hesse with a population of 7,000. The driver of the car was arrested, the police in Kassel said, while refusing to confirm whether of not they were treating it as an accident, while stressing they did not believe there to be a "political motive". Multiple reports have suggested similar events throughout the region have now been put on ice as a result.

Another incident in Germany couple of hours ago
It's just coming through the American news feed now. German media said the driver deliberately broke through plastic barriers set up by police around the parade area. Police have called off all carnival parades in the German state of Hesse.

Car drives into German carnival parade, more than 30 reported injured

More than 30 people were injured on Monday after a car plowed into a carnival parade in the western German town of Volkmarsen, Bild newspaper said on Monday.

Police confirmed the incident but said it was too early to say exactly how many people were hurt or whether it was an accident or the driver had deliberately rammed the car into the crowd.

“Unfortunately, we cannot rule out that it was done with intent,” police spokesman Reiner Linger, police spokesman for the nearby city of Kassel, told Welt TV.

German news website HNA cited witnesses as saying the driver appeared to have deliberately targeted children and had driven “at full throttle” into the crowd, which had gathered for the Shrove Monday procession.

Bild said that a third of more than 30 people hurt were seriously injured. Police called off all carnival parades in the German state of Hesse, where Volkmarsen is located, as a precautionary measure.

The incident comes less than a week after a man gunned down 11 people, including himself, in one of the worst racist attacks in Germany since World War Two.

Carnival is hugely popular in parts of western Germany, especially in Rhineland cities such as Cologne and Duesseldorf, where festivities peak on “Rose Monday” with tens of thousands attending street parades featuring comical or satirical floats.

Police cars and ambulances rushed to the scene in Volkmarsen, a small town in northern Hesse, 260 miles (420 km) west of Berlin.

“We are on the ground with a big deployment. An investigation is underway,” north Hesse police said on Twitter after the incident, which they said occurred at about 2:45 p.m. (1345 GMT).

Amateur pictures published online showed police officers standing next to a silver Mercedes-Benz car that appeared to have been involved.

German media said the driver deliberately broke through plastic barriers set up by police around the parade area.

The car had continued driving through the crowd for about 30 meters (33 yards) before coming to a halt, an eyewitness told broadcaster Hessenschau.

The broadcaster said eyewitnesses described the man as between 20 and 30 years old and that around 1,500 people had been expected to watch the parade.

The driver of a car that rode into a carnival parade in the German town of Volkmarsen was a 29-year-old German citizen, a police spokesman was cited as saying by broadcaster Hessenschau.

The regional station said police had told it they had no immediate information about the man’s motive, but believed he had acted intentionally.

Local police said that the driver of the vehicle had been arrested after it ploughed into the crowd, adding that police were present en masse at the scene.

At least a dozen people were injured after being run over by the vehicle, according to German media reports, with some outlets reporting that small children were among the victims.

Police said an investigation was underway, urging bystanders of the event to refrain from sharing footage and images online and requesting they upload it to a dedicated information portal instead.

Wir wissen, dass der Wunsch nach umfassenden Informationen groß ist.
Wir appellieren jedoch eindringlich an alle, die Bilder oder Videos aus #Volkmarsen haben:
Halten Sie sich zurück mit Spekulationen; verbreiten Sie keine dieser Aufnahmen.
Ein Hinweisportal wird eingerichtet.

Car plows into crowd during carnival parade in central Germany
I wonder, if this incident might have something to do with recent headlines on the Aalst Carnival?

“Aalst Carnival is a shame,” says Margaritis Schinas
'Aalst Carnival a shame,' says European Commissioner

Monday, 24 February 2020 - European Commissioner Margaritis Schinas, in charge of promoting the European way of life and fighting against antisemitism, on Monday strongly condemned floats and disguises caricaturing Jews at the Aalst Carnival the day before.

“It is clear to me: the Aalst Carnival is a shame. It needs to stop. No place for this in Europe,” Schinas tweeted in reference to carnival groups who, surfing on last year’s controversy, on Sunday again depicted Jews with hooked noses, sometimes dressed as ants.



The float had caused a furore internationally and led UNESCO to withdraw the Carnival from its World Heritage list.

The parade also saw the European branch of the American Jewish Committee call for an EU investigation, with its director, Daniel Schwammenthal, saying that Sunday’s displays warranted the use of a political sanctions mechanism against Belgium which has already been used against Poland and Hungary.

“The European Commission should consider the Article 7 procedure (…) Because the Flemish and Belgian federal authorities refused to prevent this grotesque public expression of anti-Semitic hatred,” Schwammenthal said, referring to a mechanism which allows the EU to suspend a member state’s rights and impose other sanctions if it considers a country to have breached the bloc’s core values, reports De Standaard.

Yes, the way public perception is managed is just disgusting. Same old "here's proof that everyone who doesn't agree with the mainstream is a Nazi."

I agree that it's too early for conspiracy theories, however there's one interesting bit: apparently, the killer contacted the authorities years ago, perhaps multiple times, and claimed he was subject to illegal surveillance. Whether there's something fishy here or he was just a paranoid crazy is hard to tell though. (See Hanau: Attentäter kontaktierte Behörden offenbar lange vor der Tat - WELT)
