Yesterday, the news were saying that the attack was just a thoughtless attack and there was probably no hate behind it (WTF), but today people have come to their senses and it's being investigated as a hate crime. At least twenty people were affected, including children, and it was the first attack of its kind in Finland. All info from this article (in Finnish again), which includes a picture. About which I have this to say: That much smoke and the attack was just a thoughtless one-time thing? Please!

I've been reading news about what's been going on at Prides this year, and maybe I just haven't paid enough attention to things (very possible since I tend to stick my head in the sand), but it seems like there was a lot more violence going on this year than the last, and I wondered if that was going to show in Finland too. How sad that I was proved right.

ETA: It's actually over thirty victims, including a 1-year old child, and at least five more people yet have to be caught. The police describe it as carefully planned attack now, though really, gas in the face. How can an attack like that not be deliberately done?
