White Finnish justice is sometimes lopsided

by , under Enrique Tessieri

An example of how white Finnish justice works?

Two inebriated white Finns start to harass a non-white boy in a racist manner. The boy yells something back at them and speeds away with his bike.

A white Finnish couple says something at the men about their behavior toward the boy. They approach the couple, and the thirty-year-old man hits and kicks one of the suspects who yelled at the boy.

The man, claims that he attacked the inebriated men after they got about a meter from him. The man said he attacked them because he feared they might have a knife.

The court did not accept the defendant’s claim and was fined 1,300 euros for assault and threatening a person unlawfully.

A court of appeal had turned down a request to overturn the original ruling.

Up to here, we can sort of understand the case. However, an important piece is missing: racist harassment of a child by two white Finnish adults. Did the police attempt to find the child and bring charges against the two men?

The story reads as if racist harassment is unimportant and has no bearing on the case.

White Finnish justice is lopsided.
