An off-duty firefighter has been beaten to death in the German city of Augsburg, outside of the city’s Christmas Market. A gang of seven Muslim “youths” has been arrested for the savage and senseless beating of the firefighter.
Breitbart (h/t Maurice) The fatal attack took place on Friday night as 49-year-old firefighter Roland S. was near the Christmas Market with his wife and another couple and got into an argument with the chief suspect, 17-year-old Halid S, who comes from a Turkish-Lebanese-German background, and his six friends, Bildreports.
The argument soon turned into full-on violence and saw the group of youths beat the man so viciously that he died on the way to hospital after the mob had fled.
The attack has shocked not only the city of Augsburg but also the entire region of Bavaria. Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann stated: “The terrible attack has shaken many people in Augsburg and beyond.
Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer also commented on the incident stating: “What has really upset me is that a peaceable citizen was killed in Augsburg, simply beaten to death.”
On Monday, 150 firefighters gathered at the site of the attack to mourn Roland S. with a note at the vigil stating: “He came as a saviour and went as an angel.”
