Last month a 25-year-old man was set upon by “youths” in Oosterhout, a town near Rotterdam known for its cultural enrichment. The rambunctious youngsters knocked the unfortunate man to the ground and kicked him in the head until he was unconscious.
Four suspects have now been arrested, but as you can see from a quick glance at the news stories (even if you don’t read Dutch), the teenage perpetrators are not named, so no Mohammed Coefficient can be assigned to the case.
Anyone want to take bets on the amount of cultural enrichment involved here?
The following video was broadcast on Dutch TV before the suspects were apprehended. Many thanks to SimonXML for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:04||This is the Klappijstraat, the street for going out in Oosterhout.|
|00:08||The youth in the white shirt and open jacket is the victim.|
|00:12||Now pay attention to the youth behind him; the first blow has already struck.|
|00:16||One of the youths around him gives a sign to the others that it’s about to start.|
|00:20||The youth is more or less trapped by the group. And then it all goes wrong.|
|00:24||He gets more heavy blows to the head, but that’s not all.|
|00:28||The blows come raining down. The youth still tries to defend himself,|
|00:32||but he has no chance against this much violence. He’s pushed,|
|00:36||kicked and hit from all sides. But now watch this.|
|00:40||While he’s lying on the ground,|
|00:44||someone stamps on his head and kicks him. And then it’s all over.|
|00:48||The youth tries to stand up again, and then loses consciousness.|
|00:52||Lots of people saw this happen. If you are one of them,|
|00:56||please call us now.|
