Bent Sandberg was attacked by two Somali immigrants in a random unprovoked hate crime. The attack took place on a public bus. Hate crime violence on public buses is a re-occurring theme in both North America and Europe. Recently, an immigrant from the Congo went on a racially motivated killing spree on a public bus in Norway. The perp was scheduled to be deported, but allowed to roam free until his deportation date. He retaliated by stabbing three white people to death.
Bent Sandberg was sitting in the very back of the bus. Two young Somalians began menacing him. When he stood up, they attacked. He was knocked down, and then the two thugs stomped on him while he was on the ground.
The attack drew a lot of attention after Danish author Jim Lyngvild called Denmark “a nation of chickens” on Facebook for allowing hate crime violence to continue.
