Fan who dressed as a character from the Assassin's Creed video games sparks terror in German town where locals feared he would kill
As fear spread of roaming assassin, parents kept children home in Rottweil
Police launched a manhunt for the games fan as pictures spread on Twitter
One Twitter user wrote: 'I may not kill all of you, but I'll kill as many as I can'
Police finally arrested 25-year-old after he turned himself in and apologised
He said: 'I am a huge fan of the game, and I just really like the costume and wanted to wear it'

What the heck?
Even if he was playing the part of an assassin, he would only kill his target, not the entire city. Or else he's going to desynchronize.

Germans making a big deal out of nothing, hahaha.

This is an example of the funny kind of stupidity, the kind that makes for a good story later down the road. No harm was done, so as far as I'm concerned there was no foul. Parents can take the situation as an opportunity to reflect on jumping to conclusions, and cosplayers can take the situation as an opportunity to reflect on being more aware of their surroundings.

I give the story 4 lol's out of five.

While reading the article I was cracking up the whole time. xD

I'm guessing the message of the story is not to cosplay any Assassin Creed's character in Rottweil, Germany.

Hmm... Germans freaking out about someone dressed up in a weird uniform threatening to kill
large numbers of innocent peaceful people????

I guess they aren't used to that sort of thing over there ;-)

You know, I don't blame the Germans for freaking out at someone dressed up as a character in uniform that kills a lot of people. I mean, you never know...

Not quite. It's some people becoming confused about someone dressed up in a weird uniform and photographing him, the photographs finding their way to Twitter, a tweet posted in jest which ultimately made the situation worse, and large numbers of peaceful people falling into a panic before adequately assessing the situation. The individual in question even did the right thing upon discovering that people were panicking and submitted himself to the authorities to show his good will.

It's a case of an otherwise inert situation snowballing into an unwarranted problem, nothing more.

This reminds me of a time back in middle school when my friend made an inconspicuous knife on his arm ("inspired" from Assassin's Creed, as he put it), and hid it under his hoodie sleeve. Someone snitched on him, and he got in trouble for it. The police were invovled and everything. This kid was only like 5'3 and adorable, he would not kill anyone.
