About 2,200 people watched the German synagogue shooting on Amazon’s Twitch ... witch.html

Wednesday’s shooting in the eastern German city of Halle outside of a synagogue was livestreamed on Amazon’s Twitch service, the company confirmed to CNBC. The video was 35 minutes long. Two people were killed in the attack, German police said earlier in the day.


NBC News reported that the video showed the shooter parking near the synagogue and shooting a woman before he entered the building. He wasn’t able to enter the synagogue and shot another person after driving to a kebab shop. The video was also posted to 10 white-supremacist Telegram channels where they were accessibly by tens of thousands of users, NBC News said.

It shows the growing problem that streaming platforms are facing: When people want to commit evil, they can broadcast their crimes to an audience using social networks, which can amplify their reach.


The shooter was a neo-Nazi who decided to attack the synagogue on Yom Kippur, and live-stream it to the world.

Here's from CNN:
The suspect: A 27-year-old male named Stephan B. has been arrested, according to a spokesman for the German Federal Prosecutor.
The victims: A woman and man were killed in the shooting rampage. The woman was shot near the town's synagogue and a man was struck in a kebab shop roughly 600 meters away from the synagogue. Their killings appear in a live-streamed video.
There's a video of the attack: A 35-minute video, which appears to have been filmed by the gunman, was posted on Twitch, an online video streaming platform that is most commonly used to stream live video of video games.
The motive: The German Federal Prosecutors office told CNN that the attack appears to have been motivated by "extreme far-right and anti-Semitic" views. The suspected gunman in the German attack launched into a brief anti-Semitic rant in the video, claiming the Holocaust "never happened" and saying that the root of some of the world's problems are the Jews.
Today is Yom Kippur: The incident comes on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.
