Awful pictures of Anti-Nazi protesters in Sweden trampled by police on horseback

Apparently the police in Sweden weren’t given the memo from Ferguson protesters that only blacks are targets because they trampled a bunch of people who were protesting a Neo-Nazi group gaining political power.

Here are some of the awful pictures from the Associated Press:

That’s just horrifying. Here’s the report from the AP:

At least three people were seriously injured Saturday when mounted riot police charged demonstrators in southern Sweden, authorities said.

Police spokeswoman Ewa-Gun Westford said officers on horseback chased rock-throwing demonstrators who were “causing violent riots” in Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city. Swedish media published photos of people on the ground as police horses raced over them down a street.

Approximately 1,000 people had gathered in Malmo to protest an election rally by a far-right group, the Party of the Swedes, ahead of the country’s Sept. 14 parliamentary vote. Those injured were protesters.

Now Nazis being trampled? I wouldn’t mind that as much.
