…where a city councilor made arrest a young Nigerian accusing him of having assaulted only to get him away from his sight, then discovering that the immigrant was innocent…

…and where a peddler was kicked on the beach by five children, under the amused gaze of parents…

That happened in less than ten days.
Oh, I forgot that everyone in Europe must respect the law.
And if people like these are leading the country:

Well, now everything is explained.
