After the fatal shot in a dispute over the mask requirement in Idar-Oberstein, Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) warns of a radicalization of the lateral thinker movement in Germany. "The group of lateral thinkers is getting smaller and smaller, but unfortunately also more and more radical and brutal," Seehofer told "Bild am Sonntag". The politically motivated violence in Germany by lateral thinkers is dangerous for the country. "They can decompose our country if the rule of law does not fight them with all possible means," said Seehofer. He demanded that "the perpetrators and those who support crimes such as those in Idar-Oberstein" should be severely punished.

Last Saturday, a 20-year-old student who was working at the cash register was shot at a gas station in Idar-Oberstein in Rhineland-Palatinate.

According to the investigators, he had previously advised the 49-year-old suspect on compliance with the mask requirement.

According to the police, the alleged perpetrator stated in his interrogation that he rejected the corona protective measures.
