An 87-year-old confronted an immigrant gang of five that was assaulting a helpless puppy outside a grocery store. The gang then turned their attention to her, beating her to the ground and then brutally kicked and punched her until she started bleeding from her private parts. The sadistic attack is now sending shock-waves through the once-idyllic small town of Helsingborg, southern Sweden.
Helsingborg, which was once an idyllic and sleepy industrial town in the heart of Swedens southernmost province, has gone through a rapid transformation to the worse during the last few decades. It is now plagued by a surge in gang-related crime and a deteriorating social situation.
In other parts of what politicians hail as the New Sweden, too, elderly people are on a daily basis reminded of the fact that the safe and friendly country of their youth may be gone forever.
In an eerily similar case in Gothenburg in March this year, a 61-year-old pensioner was beaten so savagely that he fell into a coma. His crime? Trying to protect his dog from being harassed by an immigrant gang outside a supermarket in Kortedala.
