Last Saturday it was “youths” from Afghanistan tearing up an asylum residence in a small Bavarian town. Today it’s “youths” from Syria tearing up a store at a mall in Essen, and sending a store detective to the hospital.
I was going to grab the photo of the wreckage of the store, but then I thought, “Why bother?”
We’ve been posting a lot of those lately — scenes of mayhem, carnage, debris, and property damage caused by high-spirited young migrants who express their gratitude to their adopted country by destroying their residential facilities. We might as well just create a “symbolfoto” of desolation and chaos and use it for every post.
Germany: Syrian “Youths” Trash Store, Attack Detective
Essen — As Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung reports, Sunday evening, seven Syrian “youths” vandalized a store in the mall at the Essen train station.
Two detectives of the Tchibo store noticed that outside the store a group of “youths” were harassing a woman.
They told the youths to behave. Hearing this, the youths bolted into the store and tore out shelves to attack the detectives with. One detective had to be taken to hospital.
Two plainclothes policemen who were patrolling the train station came to help and called for reinforcements. In the end, two dozen police officers were needed to overpower the adolescents.
The seven young Syrians, who are between 13 and 18 years old, were released from custody later the same day. One of them was carrying a knife on him. Federal Police are investigating charges of damage of property, battery, grievous battery, and breaching the peace of the land.
The Tchibo sales ladies received psychological help.
