Adrian Klemens, a Dynamic Sports Academy coach, detailed:
They were being tailed by one of them on a bike. Then there were 16 of them. They circled them and picked one off to the side and said: “Give me your phone or I will stab you – put in your Apple Pay password.”
Out of our group three were white and three were black and they said to the black guys: “You’re good,” and just attacked the white guys.
The victim the group took to the side kept putting the password to the Apple account wrong because it was his mother’s account, which enraged one assailant enough to warn him that if he entered the password in wrong again, they were going to kill him.
The victim grabbed his phone and fled, while two other victims had their phones stolen. The victims, aged 17 to 22, are now too frightened to return to the park for training or their academy.
In the aftermath of the incident, firms and businesses in the Finsbury Park Sports Partnership, which uses the park for training, are calling on police to both install better lighting and to strengthen police presence in the park to keep citizens safe.
Klemens specified that authorities have a lax to non-existent presence in Finsbury Park – despite the murder of Iuliana Tudos, a 22-year-old, on Christmas Eve of 2017.
After a certain point and many instances of authorities in the United Kingdom ignoring the actual dangers associated with refugees and migrants and focusing their attention elsewhere, one must wonder whether or not it’s truly ignorance or actually willful disregard of the situation at hand.
The United Kingdom may be under siege – but officials and politicians may also have a suicidal death wish for the country as a whole. The blatant disregard of sovereign citizens and their safety is hard to write off as otherwise.
