A 33-year-old driver driving at high speed in the city center ended up hitting several cars and crashing in front of a cafe on Pohjoiesplanadi on May Day Eve, according to Yle News. Three people were injured including the suspect.
The suspect, a member of the Perussuomalaiset (PS)* party and a public servant at the ministry of economic affairs and employment, resisted arrest and yelled at the police.
In a video, he calls the police the devil and says repeatedly “amen” on the ground as he is being apprehended.
The suspect is being held for aggravated endangerment of traffic safety, aggravated drunk driving, grievous bodily injury, resisting an official, and insubordination, the police said in a statement, according to Yle News.
Strangely, there has been no response from the PS on what happened.
If the person had been a Muslim, we all know how the PS and the Finnish media would have reacted.
Shouldn’t we demand, in the far-right PS example, an apology from all the party members for what happened?
The best news is that nobody was hurt seriously.
