German authorities like to keep info close to the chest, and German people are very compliant to authorities, so there's not always a lot of news "sharing" from them. I'm watching a news interview right now with some German LEO. He's not really revealing much. He says he can only tell that there's three shooters and five deaths.

He requests people to send their videos to authorities.

One shooter is said to have killed himself.

Some people are saying they are right wing shooters, not Islamic. Not confirmed.

so your stating in an interview a gemran leo isnt stating much...no kidding..
thanks to other sources we can gleam whats going on allot better then what one cop who is not there thinks.


its a good thing we don't need the police to tell us how to percive the truth as
we can actually now see the events.
in the links i posted you will find vids of a firefight between the german police and two gunmen.

you will also see another of bodies on the ground, one guy with his head half blown away...

anyway
i understand why the police might want to keep a lid on it
its hard to do that when they themselves essentially close down the entire city as has been revealed by those living in munich themselves..

follow the links and hashtags ive been posting..

whats revealign regardless is an entire german city gets ground to a halt. over three shooters..

i wonder what a team of 20 could do?
how about 30?
