Morals Guards’ Brutal Beating in Vienna
February 28, 2021
Brutal scenes played out in the Inner City of Vienna a few days ago. A young man beat a Viennese — others filmed the attack.
They are scenes that bring back memories of the Morals Guardian attack from previous years. A video played on Heute shows how a young dark-skinned Viennese is surrounded in a small side street in the inner city by several teenagers. Shortly after that, one of the group punches the defenseless victim. The attacker strikes him in the face several times with his fist. The brutal attack was also filmed by an unknown person. This person encourages the attacker in Russian to continue and cheers him on.
As Heute has learned, the young Viennese was beaten up by the Kaentner passageway in the inner city. Exactly when the video was recorded and why the young man was attacked is as yet unclear. The Vienna Police have begun an investigation into the incident.
Morals Guard boss arrested in Vienna
As early as November the police were able to investigate and arrest the leader of the self-proclaimed Morals Guards — more on that here. The 20-year-old suspect is known to the police and has multiple prior arrests.
After the last Morals Guard attack, the interior minister, Karl Nehammer, reacted with hard criticism. “Every form of parallel society is intolerable in our country. The self-image of the Morals Guards alone is opposed to our peaceful coexistence. We do not allow our fundamental democratic principles to be compromised by such perfidious and self-appointed ideologues. Those who do not accept that place themselves on the extreme edge of our society.”
