Finland: 2 weeks after a "migrant" center opened, a 14 year-old local girl was raped

‘Everybody is angry. The way people talk is ten times worse that what is said in public.'
(Daily Mail) There is a sense of tension in the pretty, snow-covered Finnish town - an underlying fear which makes parents hold their children a little closer, and angry resentment towards the group of young men who arrived just a month ago.

Kempele, almost 400 miles north of Helsinki, is usually a place where 17,000 unassuming townfolk while away the hours playing ice hockey.

But that peaceful existence has been ripped apart by the rape of a 14-year-old girl as she walked home on a Monday night a fortnight ago.

The alleged culprit is one of the young men living at a migrant centre, which locals did not want in the first place.

But far from being an anomaly, Kempele - which saw hundreds take to the streets in an anti-immigration march last weekend - has become a snapshot of a country where people patrol the streets in vigilante mobs, block people crossing the border and even dress as the Ku Klux Klan at angry protests against the influx of refugees.
