On page 21 today my favorite newspaper Badische Zeitung published two additional pieces of news about topics I dealt with in earlier blogs.
One informed the reader that Pope Benedict will not get a ticket in Freiburg for driving in his papamobile without a seat belt. The charge was dismissed because he had used the papamobile on a street closed for public traffic where the German road traffic act does not hold. Will the man from Dortmund be satisfied with the argument and give up? To be continued.
On the other hand the Wagenburgler story is definitely over. The Kommando Rhino disbanded following internal quarrels about the question of violence against police actions in the past. Some members of the group moved together with other Wagenburglers to the point that the city officials counted more vehicles on the agreed site Eselwinkel than the authorized 45. Since the city has all interest to de-escalate the situation the police so far did not take any action.
