    Germany - Tugce Albayrak, 22, beaten to death, Frankfurt, 15 Nov 2014

    It was a Saturday night, and 22-year-old student Tugce Albayrak had gone out to share a meal with friends at a restaurant in the German city of Frankfurt.
    ---
    As Ms Albayrak was eating her meal at McDonald's, on November 15, she heard screams for help coming from the restaurant's toilets.

    Two teenage girls were reportedly being harassed by a group of three men in the toilets, and Ms Albayrak intervened and confronted the trio.

    The men were ejected from the restaurant and Ms Albayrak returned to finish her meal with her friends.

    Later, when she left the restaurant, one of the men allegedly attacked her in the car park with a baseball bat, leaving her with critical head injuries.
    ---
    Her life support was switched off on Friday. Tugce's parents turned off her life support on her birthday.

    She died on her 23rd birthday - she was a student teacher.

    "Germany's president is considering awarding a posthumous medal to a young woman killed after defending two teenage girls from male harassment''

    An 18 yr old has been arrested. (identified as Sanel M.)

    Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward including the teenaged girls.
    Just My Opinion

    Thanks for posting this thread, wfgodot. I've been following the case so closely and have such strong opinions about it, I didn't trust myself to post.

    As usual, Bild was the only paper (at least initially) to publish a photo of the suspect. It now has the cctv footage of the actual attack, apparently. I'll try and find it. The BBC has stills from it here. Looks a much bigger incident than I initially thought, from these.

    Ugh. It's at the link. Looks like he was just wired for a fight and didn't much care who it was with. He's the one with arms flailing, in white.

    Yes,now that I saw the video,it doesn't look like he targeted Tugce.He was out of control.
    A lot of discussion about the fascination kids in Germany,especially immigrant boys,have with Gangster Rap.Here's a picture of Senal with the Offenbacher Rapper "Haftbefehl".

    That's sad, and crazy. People are just out of control everywhere, it seems nothing is safe. Some of my female coworkers were robbed in Frankfurt, they CHASED down the robbers, along with a male waiter. All I could think is, "Not a good idea". Just because you believe they won't/can't have a gun, doesn't mean they can't kill you with another weapon.

    (PS...When I read the title I thought "Delaware" not Germany)

    Yes,I'm from Hanau close to Offenbach.I live in the States since 20 years and I go back home almost every year.It has been insane how much everything changed.It's not save to even go shopping anymore.It's also sad how a lot of Germans are becoming increasingly racist again and blaming the crimes on immigrants.
    Tugce was a model immigrant,beautiful,studying,very involved with social issues ,her facebook shows how deeply she cared about justice and good will.It's so shocking that a girl with such a bright future was taken.
    What gets me about Selan ,he is so young,looks like a child still and there are so many immigrants just like him that just don't see a bright future in Germany and adopt that "Gangster" lifestyle,glorifying violence and acting out.

    More about the perp in this article.He was in trouble 15!!!! times already.Robberies,beating up people...
    He seems to admit that he did in fact target Tugce and wanted revenge.
    Under German Law he may just get probation.The longest he will go to jail is 10 years.

    Here's the new video of "Haftbefehl" which is basically about beating people to death.(explicit)

    The autopsy is 'inconclusive'. It showed Tugce died of blunt force trauma to the head, but not if that was caused by a blow or her striking her head on the floor as she fell.

    In many countries, the person responsible for the blow would still be responsible for her death, but I fear that won't be the case in Germany and Senal, even if found guilty, will escape with a very light sentence indeed.
