‘Terror-pisser’ killed neighbour’s garden with night-time golden showers

A couple in Hamburg have finally got to the bottom of why the plants in their front garden keep turning brown and dying – their neighbour has been urinating on them at night.

A years-long feud between the two families could now be finished, after the weed-upon couple confronted their urinating neighbour – dubbed the “terror-pisser” – with video evidence of his night-time activities.

The Hamburger Morgenpost newspaper reported that Dieter and Rosemarie Friebel, who live in the Farmsen area of the city, had problems with plants in their front garden for years.

“A hibiscus suddenly looked like it had been burned by the sun,” said Mrs Friebel. She kept buying and planting new plants, but they too soon succumbed to what she started to suspect was poisoned soil.

She told the paper she even took a soil sample, intending to send it off for testing, but decided against it after discovering how expensive it would be.

The Friebels said they had long had problems with the family next door, particularly with excessive noise. A year ago Mrs Friebel saw the man, named only as Peter M., hit another car while parking his, and was called as a witness in a court case.

“Since then he has not spoken to us at all,” she told the paper.

The problems with her plants continued to be a mystery until she found a CD in the post.

“One day we found a CD in our post box. A neighbour must have given it to us,” said Mr Friebel. “When we played it, we could not believe our eyes.”

The paper said there were 12 short films, taken between October 28 and December 5 – all showing Peter M. leaving his house at night and urinating over their front garden.

They confronted him with the evidence and he has apologised.

“It makes me feel sick when I think how often I ran my fingers over the leaves and wondered where the liquid came from,” said Mrs Freibel.

German man jailed for killing petrol station worker in mask row

A 50-year-old German man was jailed for life Tuesday for shooting dead a petrol station cashier because he was angry about being told to wear a mask while buying beer.

German man jailed for killing petrol station worker in mask row

The September 2021 murder in the western town of Idar-Oberstein shocked Germany, which saw a vocal anti-mask and anti-vaccine movement emerge in response to the government’s coronavirus restrictions.

The row started when 20-year-old student worker Alex W. asked the man to put on a mask inside the shop, as required in all German stores at the time.

After a brief argument, the man left.

The perpetrator – identified only as Mario N. – returned about an hour and a half later, this time wearing a mask. But as he bought his six-pack of beer to the till, he took off his mask and another argument ensued.

He then pulled out a revolver and shot the cashier in the head point-blank.

On Tuesday, the district court in Bad-Kreuznach convicted Mario N. of murder and unlawful possession of a firearm, and handed him a life sentence.

Under German law, people given a life sentence can usually seek parole after 15 years. His defence team had sought a sentence of manslaughter, rather than murder.

At the start of the trial, prosecutor Nicole Frohn told how Mario N. had felt increasingly angry about the measures imposed to curb the pandemic, seeing them as an infringement on his rights.

“Since he knew he couldn’t reach the politicians responsible, he decided to kill him (Alex W.),” she said.

Mario N. turned himself in to police the day after the shooting.

German has relaxed most of its coronavirus rules, although masks are still required in some settings, such as public transport.
