My. This certainly inspires confidence, doesn’t it?
The guy German authorities are now looking for came to the country illegally (no passport). He had served four years in an Italian prison before that for burning down a school. He was wanted in Tunisia for other crimes. He has been committing other crimes since he arrived here in Germany but there have been no consequences. He was under surveillance for six months here because authorities feared he had become radicalized and may have been planning an attack but then they stopped the surveillance once they couldn’t get the specifics they needed to arrest him. He was due to be deported after the authorities finally got around to turning down his asylum application but they couldn’t send him back to Tunisia because he doesn’t have a passport, remember (Tunisia suddenly sent one for him, by the way – after the attack took place)? And then they lost track of him. And the only reason they even know who this guy is is because he was nice enough to leave an identification document and his fingerprints in the murder weapon truck he drove.
Well, at least they saved tons of time here in the chase by having so much information on film, right?
But other than that, the German government assures everyone that everything is under control. Now THAT is terrifying.
