  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.france24.com/en/20200115-bullet-holes-found-at-black-german-mp-s-office) reduced by 81%. (I’m a bot)

    > Karamba Diaby, a lawmaker for the centre-left Social Democratic Party, posted about the attack on Twitter, saying police and security services were investigating.

    > Attacks on politicians and officials in Thuringia and Saxony, both neighbouring states to Diaby's home in Saxony-Anhalt, more than doubled year-on-year, to 101 and 197 respectively.

    > There have been three high-profile resignations by mayors in recent months after death threats and attacks on their cars, in western states Bavaria and Lower Saxony as well as Saxony in the former communist east.

  2. > Investigators believe the attackers may have used an **”airsoft” gun firing small plastic pellets**, usually used for wargames similar to paintball.

    So these weren’t from a real gun. Still fucked up though.

  3. the article is missing that the suspect has damaged other buildings in the same street too not just the office of [Karamba Diaby](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karamba_Diaby) who reddit only knows by the name “Germany`s only black MP”

    could be politically motivated or just some drunk dude firing his [Luftgewehr](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/01/Haenel_III-284_geknickt.jpg) (maybe from his window, happend before but that means hes living nearby)

    [this is how Luftgewehr “Bullets” look like](https://www.luftgewehr-shop.com/media/image/4010/luftgewehr-munition-45-mm-diabolos-von-browning.jpg)

  4. Should move to Australia, they don’t bother their MPs.

  5. “History is doomed to repeat itself if no one remembers it” is a stupid lie. History will repeat itself if no one stands up to say otherwise.

  6. > Citing police sources, news site Spiegel Online reported that the projectiles did not penetrate the second pane in the double-glazed window.

    ​

    maybe they weren’t “bullets” if they cant go through a window…

  7. This is the same city where [a right-winger attacked a synagogue and killed two people](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Halle_synagogue_shooting) last year btw.

  8. It’s getting a tad scary here to be honest. On the one hand you have some moronic immigrants, who molest, rape and kill people and cause problems for all the other immigrants who don’t do that. On the other you have right wing extremists who get stronger and thus bolder every day.

    It started with arsoning migrant homes, now politicians are being threatened. Next step will be threatening everyone who disagrees. Openly.

  9. Holy shit, really?

    This can’t be real.

  10. “politicians at all levels”, so nothing to do with home being black. Why do they mention that?

  11. This definitely has to do with racism, but two white left wing politicians where already killed by right extremists in germany.

  12. The rise of the right-wing. The same thing is happening in the US: the racist Republican party is taking over.

    God help us all.

  13. So just another day if he were living in Alabama?

  14. I always head such lovely things about Germany these days. Hearing this news is saddening. Germany still has a heavy heart. Would love to visit the country again some day.

  15. Why do people hate african americans/immigrants so much?

  16. Why must they include “only black”

  17. Germany needs to purge more Nazis.

  18. Probably a brown person made the holes

  19. an important time to remember that west germany had the weaker denazification program
