Autopsy Finds Drugs in Berlin Terrorist’s System

Oh, so that’s why he murdered people:

Results of a post-mortem examination on the Berlin Christmas market attacker Anis Amri indicate he was a frequent drug user, an Italian official has said.

Amri, who ploughed the lorry into a busy Christmas market on 19 December and was subsequently shot by police, was a frequent user of both cocaine and hashish.

The official said it was not possible, however, to determine whether Amri had used the drugs before the massacre that killed 12 people and injured dozens more.

Amri had fled the scene following the attack, but was later identified after his wallet, identification, phone and fingerprints were found at the crime scene.

The 24-year-old failed Tunisian asylum seeker was killed four days later during a routine stop by police in a Milan suburb.

Investigations confirmed a video of Amri pledging allegiance to Isis that was released by the group following his death to be authentic.

    Apparently Amri’s passion for allah needed a little chemical boost. Will he still get the full complement of virgins??

    • That’s a thorny theological dilemma!

        Yes, all martyrs (“Shaheed”) get the full Jannah rewards. Muhammed said so.

        • Yeah, but he needed powdered courage, so…

            No different then the assassins using hash and promises of paradise and virgins to get their followers to go on suicide missions.

          • What? No spiritual fortitude?

            Scratch away the sanctimony and find the hypocrisy.

            Good point! Assassins were some of the earliest stoners.

      Dude is pumped full of illegal drugs, but he’d kill you for eating pork.

    He seemed to know the terrorist favoured ratlines used by his peers to get around the eu on the QT fairly well.

      Mosque to mosque?

    An addict may resort to robbery, possibly involving violence, to fund their habit but I’ve never heard of cocaine and/or hashish use causing someone to become a mass murderer.

    Well, wonder if they would have found Saki in a Kamikaze, or Rum in the trenches, or any number of different substances warriors would take to help them in their near certain brush with death in combat. Methamphetamines?
    The man was and is to be remembered as an enemy combatant, fighting for Islam.

    Expect a chorus of imams claiming that Anis Amri was just an addled drug user and not a true muslim since devout muslims do not use drugs.

    What they will not tell you that the only theologically sure way for a muslim to enter the muslim heaven (Jannah) is through martyrdom: killing non-muslims in jihad and being killed in this jihad. Any and every sin is wiped clean is through this martyrdom, and the sinner is guaranteed to avoid hell and enter to Jannah to partake of the 72 virgins and young boys therein.
