    Who would have guessed the Dortmund bombing was carried out by a capitalist?

    Once more those who blame one group or another without any actual evidence have been shown to be reacting out of prejudice rather than reason.

      If you use Chrome you can go to the link and ask it to translate the page by clicking on the translate icon on the far right of the address bar (looks like a couple of letters next to the bookmark star). Its not perfect since there is some technical jargon that it has trouble translating.

      Long story short, this guy bought options in the team that he would profit from if the team share price dropped significantly from say a large amount of players injured or killed would do. He stayed at the team hotel in a top floor room that overlooked the street where the explosion took place.

      “Police report that they are investigating several possibilities behind the attack. Several sophisticated devises were involved. Probably not terrorism. Probably just about money.
