Spain: Surge in Migrant Crime by Soeren Kern. “We have tasers, but they are stored in a closet because of political cowardice.” — Spokesperson, Municipal Police of Bilbao.
In Madrid, an elderly couple returning home from vacation discovered that their apartment had been “occupied” by African migrants.

Spain’s notoriously lethargic justice system now rules on who is the apartment’s rightful owner.
The Madrid city council, run by Mayor Manuela Carmena, in a case study of political correctness run amok, ordered police to keep out of the neighborhood of Lavapiés.
