Ali Dahir, the black bus driver who was assaulted Tuesday in Helsinki by a white Finn, claims that the police and the law treat foreigners differently from Finns. The bus driver, who is a Finnish citizen and a native of Somalia, was attacked while at work and suffered concussions.
While the police and government officials may disagree with Dahir, his statement by him reveals a wider known problem: There is little credibility of the police and our laws by some immigrants. It is a serious problem that should be addressed.
“The police and the law treat foreigners [or people who aren’t white Finns] unfairly,” he told Migrant Tales. “If I would have attacked a white bus driver, you can be certain I’d be arrested and jailed.”
Dahir asked the policemen why they didn’t arrest and lock up the attacker after he was apprehended.
“All they said was that they understood why I was angry [by what happened],” he said.
Dahir, who has lived 17 years in Finland, believes that the police and law continue to treat people who aren’t white Finns unfairly.
“I am certain that if this would have happened in the UK or Sweden, they’d have locked up the attacker,” he said.
