However, we decided to produce this analytical document because the dramatic incident in Berlin raises several questions concerning: the new way critical events are investigated by some police forces in Central and Northern Europe, the hysteric security climate emerging on the political panorama as a consequence of the fight against terrorism, the competences of some police and intelligence forces to resist to this negative climate in the name of their independence and professionalism and, last but not least, the role of media as involuntary collaborator of terrorism.
All these factors need to be addressed right now for the relevance of the problem concerned and for this reason we accept the risk to propose a counter-analysis on the events in Berlin from a non-terrorist perspective.
This short analysis is also an ex post document for future reference when the events will be more clear, with the objective to implement our capacity to carry out serious and independent investigations without media and political interferences.
