Update : Murder on Belgian teen for MP3-player

Police have just arrested one of the suspects, not the killer but his accomplice. It turns out to be a Pole, not a North African as was first being reported. The killer has been identified but not yet arrested.

Thank God they finally identified them! The schoolprincipal was able to identify them with some new footage that we'll only get to see tomorrow

Allez.

glad it's been caught whatever the origin of the killer, no excuse at all, should be judged and severely punished...
And well people who started allegations about him being north african well...

I briefly saw a portion of a news clip about this yesterday - not about the killers but about some sort of protest related to it. I remember being confused and slightly wondering why people went out to protest or about what they were protesting ("why is this murder so special?"), but "Battlestar Galactica" was on the other channel, so switched to that and forgot all about it.

They were protesting for more security, especially in public places like stations.

Definitely. Wherever a criminal is from he/she should be punished for the crime he/she committed according to the effective laws of that country.

Now the fact that this criminal is from Poland never binds other Polish people; they cannot be held responsible for his crime and are never required to defend or even explain themselves. It’s simple as that.

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us

Not until you know who finds something to say about them, at any rate.

Glad that the Police have caught at least one of the alleged perpetrators quickly, it always helps to allow the public to move on when there's a speedy resolution to a violent murder like this.

I think the press stated that these boys had a "North African appearance" or words to that effect. Then, of course, certain people picked up on that and started all the problems we had in the other thread. It's always easier for certain quarters of the press and members of the public to make pre judgements about things like this - I mean, why on earth bother finding out the facts when you can blame it on a minority ethnic community?

I sure love this thread because I am very happy that they caught one guy and identified the other. I would even be gladder if they catch the second one (because he is the killer and I don't like the idea that he's running around free )

As far as the fact that they turn out to be Poles is concerned:
1) There are suspicions that the police is lying about the origin in order not to avoid rows against the Moroccan community. It is a fact that when you see the images these guys really look as if they have Northafrican roots. They have dark hair and they are not blond and pale.
2) This changes nothing to the fact that it has been proven that youngsters from Moroccan origin commit more crimes than youngsters from other origins.

So in case one would doubt is, I maintain my position on the issues that were previously discussed and in case anyone would still feel tempted to call me a racist, you will be reported to the Administrators (as usual )

That is not true. There is a report, called the report Van San (which has been brushed under the rug by the Belgian politicians) which shows that Easteuropean criminals do operate in Belgium. They are however mostly involved in car thefts and robberies on shops (at night). And if they kill someone, it is in most cases a finishing off of a co-robber.
