The rapper ‘Massiv’ has also responded to accusations that he instigated the shootings as a marketing ploy. He made his comments on a five minute Youtube video.
“Miserable work” was how the rapper described the police response to the shootings. Haydar, another rapper who was with Massiv at the scene of the crime said that he had to call the police two or three times, “until they finally arrived at the crime scene after 15 minutes.”
“The first call was received by us at 22:13. Our colleagues were at the scene at exactly 22:17 and 43 seconds,” police spokesperson Bernhard Schodrowski told the Berliner Morgenpost.
Massiv also criticized the police for their handling of suspects after the arrest, by saying “Is it normal to let them go after one or two hours? I absolutely cannot explain that.”
“There was no immediate suspicion against those persons,” Schodrowski told Berliner Morgenpost in response to the rapper’s criticism of how police handled the suspects.
“It is absurd how people are reacting (to the shooting) by depicting me as an actor,” Massiv said in response to those who have claimed that the shootings were a PR gag.
Massiv’s new album is yet to enter the top 100.
