The refugee crisis worldwide has become the focus of many news reports. While some cover the humanitarian efforts, the underlying story often goes untold. Many areas that are flooded with refugees see a new and emerging crisis tied to an increase in violence and crime. One such event was caught live on the news and broadcast in real time. A news reporter in Rome, Italy was brutally attacked by a group of refugees while covering the need for humanitarian efforts for the group.
Correspondent Francesca Parisella was doing a live news spot about the needs of refugees at the central train station in Rome. In the middle of the broadcast, she and her camera crew were attacked by migrants who had sought shelter for the night.
Parisella ran to find safety with a taxi driver who was waiting in the area; sadly the cameraman was not so lucky. According to a translated report, he was beaten and his camera destroyed:
“Just as Nicola Porro connects at around 23.30, with his post at Rome Termini Station, to document the situation of the bivouacs that populate her at night, Francesca Parisella has the time to start the connection and then warn “we have been assaulted “. The room swings, it is understood that the journalist and operator are fleeing, and the voice of the chronicler rises up to become a real scream of fear.
A few minutes later, studio studio explains that “Francesca is upset but she is okay, they have destroyed the camera and hacked the operator.” One like that of this evening It should not be a reportage in the war zone. “Thanks to a taxi driver, if not It would be much worse. ”
A version confirmed by Parisella himself, on the phone, shortly afterwards: “We were away to tell what kind of hospitality we can give, are bothered and attacked. They rushed me and taken to my jacket,” the reporter said.”
Sadly this violent type of attack is not anything new for many parts of Europe that are seeing massive waves of refugees. The increase in both sexual assaults and violence is taking a toll on much of Europe.
In Germany, the sale of pepper spray and other self-defense tools has soared as many look to keep their families safe from refugees. Some parts of Germany saw an increase in sales of more than 600% in just a few months.
Sweden is now facing a new sort of outbreak, the sudden jump in sexual assaults tied to refugees. Sweden has become recognized as the “rape capital of the West” with the huge spike in the number of reported rapes. In a statement from the Swedish Democrat Party:
“When will you journalists realize that it is deeply rooted in Islam’s culture to rape and brutalize women who refuse to comply with Islamic teachings. There is a strong connection between rapes in Sweden and the number of immigrants from MENA-countries [Middle East and North Africa].”
The sexual assaults and attacks in Sweden are especially a concern because they are widely under-reported to protect the on-going refugee programs. According to a recent report:
“What is absolutely insane is that certain groups of rapists are overlooked because the weight of politically-correct guilt over discrimination forbids the political action necessary to stop what is going on.
Instead, the political considerations apparently trump the crime – no matter how serious. The right of Swedish women, and those across Europe, to be unmolested and left alone is peanuts next to the enormous task of selling the public on a rash wave of hording Muslim men in the name of compassion and the cultural melting pot.”
The overall safety of citizens in Sweden is at risk when scores of immigrants are allowed to essentially take advantage of others as they wish. Several times over the last year, something as simple as a music festival turned into all out chaos as large groups of Arab men used the event to attack and victimize young women. These women are not seen as people, but instead just there to be fondled and controlled.
It seems it is not in the best interest of those trying to push the plight of refugees to expose the realities of the violence and sexual crimes. While a large attack in Sweden on New Years Day finally made the media, a very similar attack was ignored last summer. This was explained in a recent report:
“The Cologne sex assault on New Year’s Eve, where groups of Arab and North African men groped more than a hundred German women, has shocked Europe this last week. But a very similar incident, with a large number of perpetrators and victims, took place in the Swedish capital last summer. That incident however was silenced by large Swedish newspapers and media companies, despite repeated attempts from police officers to contact journalists. This is how leading Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter tried to cover up a politically inconvenient sex assault story.
Hordes of young men pressed against young girls, fondled and tried to cop a feel over and under skirts, pants and shirts. There were severe sexual assaults happening right in front of the stage, where artists such as Larsson and rapper OIAM performed. During a single night police and security guards had to intervene against around 90 younger males, but even adult men took part in the abuse.”
Primarily covering up the increase in violence from refugees does little to change the growing trend. While it may keep those who support open borders to take in refugees, it does little to address the safety of those who are being victimized.
