Whenever they hold off giving the attacker’s name, it’s usually because it’s politically sensitive.

They announced his name, a German. The authorities are investigating if it was a right wing attack or something personal. They raided his apartment looking for explosives.

So what was his name? Germany is in many ways a melting pot and You could be a German born Muslim or Hindu, Buddhist etc. Many Muslim Germans identify themselves as Muslims first and German second, so we don't know yet, but being German born doesn't mean anything. if you believe in radical Jihadism, it's all the same. We just don't know, but Germany does have a law that withholds the persons identity or race from the from being released public usually.

And yet again someone trying to push a narrative. I deleted a post before that I had finished hoping that people would do this themselves but apparently not...

It doesn't take more than a minute to look up that information yourself but then you would not have anything to post here now, would you?

Jens R. (a really common German name)

Born 1969 in the Sauerland, Germany

Self employed industrial designer

Used his own car

Has attempted suicide before

Not known to be an extremist (of any kind...so not just what you are trying to imply)

Neighbors have described him as being somewhat weird and he was apparently often asking for trouble

Known to the police for damage to property and threatening people

Apparently had another weapon at home

Right now there is nothing that speaks for an islamic background

You seem to have a lot of knowledge about Germany and Austria. You'd mentioned your grandparents (sometimes parents) were immigrants to the US. Are they from there?

This isn't an Islamic terrorist attack. It's just a terrorist attack. As Confusius pointed out the man has a very common German name and hasn't been known to be of the Islamic faith. And even if he was this would be the dumbest Islamic terrorist ever. In all of these similar cases with terrorists running people over usually when they get out of the vehicle they tend to continue killing, not shot themselves
