Late in the evening on December 31 I predicted that we were not yet done with a culturally enriched New Year’s Eve, and unfortunately I was right. Our Danish correspondent TB sends this translation about a particularly brutal attack for the most trivial of reasons.
TB includes this note:
As expected, the jackals did not waste much time in 2010 before destroying the life of yet another native Dane. This time the psychopaths attacked a 53-year-old man celebrating New Year’s Eve. It is like herds of wild animals coming out of the sewer to hunt innocent and weak prey when darkness falls. The cruelty is beyond the common man’s imagination.
And the translation from Ekstra Bladet:
Beaten half to death over fireworks dispute- - - - - - - - -
Robbers beat a man with an iron club and kicked him when he refused to hand over his fireworks — police searching for a gang of immigrants
His chin and nose got smashed. Several bones were broken and his spleen was destroyed.
That’s how New Years Eve ended for a 53-year-old man from Frederiksberg after he became the victim of unmotivated violence which could have killed him. He got away with his life intact but is still hospitalized and is being treated for the extensive damage he received when a group of young immigrants attacked him because he refused to hand over his fireworks.
The assault happened early this morning at Flintholm Alle in Frederiksberg where the 53-year-old man, together with some friends, was celebrating the evening with fireworks.
A group of between five and six youngsters came to him and demanded that he gave his fireworks to them. He refused and was smashed. Blows and kicks were ‘raining’ down on him. He was also hit at least 20 times when he was lying down on the frozen ground.
“We have no clues about the group, so we would very much like to hear from witnesses. It is an unusually heinous assault. The man’s injuries are extensive,” the police say to Ekstra Bladet.
