Elder abuse is never okay — not even if the elderly are literally carrying an allegedly deathly virus.
A number of youths in southern Spain attacked a convoy of ambulances carrying elderly patients with coronavirus, throwing rocks at the vehicles.
The attack took place in the city of La Línea de la Concepción, which lies on the Spanish border with the British territory of Gibraltar, and saw the youths prevent the passage of the convoy of medical vehicles that were carrying 28 elderly infected with the Wuhan coronavirus.
Local police arrested two people — a 25-year-old and a 32-year-old — but said that a total of 50 young people were involved in the incident, which also saw officers attacked with two homemade explosive devices, according to Sud Ouest.
The disrespectful youths even wanted to blow the old timers up.
This is proof that ageism is a form of terrorism.
“Several youths gathered at the entrance to the town and threw stones at the ambulances as well as leaving a vehicle across the road to try to prevent it reaching its destination,” a police spokesman confirmed in comments reported by the Daily Mail.
“Officers arrested the two occupants of the vehicle, two men aged 32 and 35. Once the elderly people were taken into the home, police had to establish a security cordon around the residence as around 50 people outside threatened to cause problems,” they added.
The pensioners were being moved because of a coronavirus outbreak in their care home, which had infected dozens and killed three, so it could be disinfected.
Prior to the incident, Spanish authorities found the bodies of several elderly people who had been abandoned in their homes, with Defence Minister Margarita Robles stating they had been “completely left to fend for themselves, or even dead, in their beds”.
America has plenty of troublesome youngsters that may be eager to follow the example of Spain, but they know better than to try.
They know they’d get a good whooping.
