A group of youths assaulted and stabbed a 38-year-old man in Ida Aalbergintie in the Helsinki suburb of Haaga in the early hours of Saturday morning. The man died from his wounds. According to eyewitnesses, a crowd of 6 to 10 youths aged 16 to 18 were present at the scene. The group consisted of white and Somali men together with a few white girls.
Oh no. It is like three hundred meters from the place I lived. When I moved to Haaga I remember thinking that there werent too many ethnic groups there (just bunch of winos). Things changed about a year ago. Now look what happened.
What is wrong with these people. I know that knives or "puukko" is part of finnish culture. These kids learn fast. Todays Hesari states that the boys were captured. Death seems to be come a common part of every day life. Couple months ago a girl was shot to death three block away from our house in Berkeley and couple months before that a girl stabbed an old lady also right next to our house.
Meleia Willis-Starbuck, 19, a Dartmouth College student home for the summer, was slain July 17 on a Berkeley street, moments after calling Hollis for help as she and some friends argued with a group of young men. Police said she told Hollis to "bring the heat" _ meaning bring a gun.
Authorities believe that when Hollis arrived, he fired at the men from a car, unintentionally shooting Willis-Starbuck.
