I Like Movies And Books That Cheer People Up (Here I took a photo of my favorite-DVD!) As The Iberian Lynx Isn't Critically Endangered Anymore, But The Darwin's Fox Still Is, I Decided To Replace The Old Photo By A Photo Showing A Darwin's Fox! My Favorite Singers Are Daniel Boys And David Archuleta - I Still Find This Picture I Drew Kind Of Cheesy!

“Tagesschau“ says that this Monday three people died in a house in Esslingen in Baden-Wuerttemberg (Germany) due to an increased concentration of carbon monoxide.
Thus the firebrigade of Esslingen now gave some tipps to prevent further disasters like these: Never use appliances such as mushrooms or radiant heaters, gas and coal grills or water pipes in enclosed spaces, as carbon monoxide may get produced.
Air conditioners, generators and extractor hoods can also be a source of danger. If these devices are used in combination with airtight windows or doors, this can lead to an increased CO concentration in the room.
If you have a fireplace or an oil heating system in the apartment, you should also think about a carbon monoxide alarm. These devices warn similarly to smoke detectors when the concentration of the gas is too high. The detectors must be installed near the heater or the fireplace.

>”Tierschutz Euskirchen” says that the Pariser-Platz in Berlin (Brandenburg/ Germany) now forbids the use of horse drawn carriages – for profit or not. Reason is that some people complained about some of these animals allegedly not being held species-appropriate.
>”GEA” says that in Damascus (Syria) an anti-Assad-group managed to take a helicopter down and take the Russian pilot hostage.

“Domradio” says that the German government now reacted to the Hereros of Namibia demanding some recompensation for the genocide Germany committed during World War I. Mr. Polenz says that they shall not receive any recompensation as they were not directly affected by the genocide. Those Hereros who survived the war are dead and the Hereros alive today are their grand-children or great-grand-children. This means they were not directly affected by the genocide. ‘According to the principle of state immunity, a state is deprived of the jurisdiction of foreign states’ he says, meaning that even though the Hereros brought this case to an international court this may not change anything about this decision.

It is the same here. Even big news in other countries often is only mentioned briefly in media here.
The “prankster” has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, our lowest class of murder. It’s murder by carelessness, recklessness, or unintentional cause.
Here, if anyone dies for any reason (including other criminals- even those killed by the police!) while you are committing a crime, their death is your fault and you will be charged with some kind of murder.
That’s what happened to this guy.
People are still wondering about the police reaction though.
