Heavy price for not buying a ticket! Baton-wielding riot police charge into migrants at a metro station in Barcelona ‘because one had not paid his fare’

According to local reports, the accused man argued with a security guard who tried to stop him from jumping on the train then called police for back up.

    Is this like the indiana jones episode where he tosses the guy off the blimp and claims it was because he didn’t have a ticket.

    This is a good start, now they should move on to scatter guns loaded with rock salt and pork rind. The ball would then be in be in the parasites court as to whether more escalation is needed.

    I wish they’d enforce immigration laws like that.

    If more “migrants” were beaten senseless at every opportunity, there’d be fewer migrants. Gracias, Barcelona riot police.

    Does anyone remember “broken windows” policing?

    The idea was to crack down on small stuff before it spins out of hand. I suppose the strategy is considering insensitive these days.

      From what I have seen, the only people who pay train fares in Europe are the tourists.

    If only they upheld all laws with the same vigor.

    But aren’t mahometans supposed to ride free and take stuff from stores without paying?

  • Spatchcocked

    You understand of course that being seriously fanned with truncheons was the very LAST thing the troublemakers expected.

    Plaza Catalunya Station is right where that van-driving Mohamadan mounted the curb and mowed down all those people on La Rambla, so not a smart move by these dorks to pull any tricks there.

  • Oh, I see. They’re taking things seriously now.
