They forgot to say those 6 africans were drug dealers and that is was a territory war against new nigerians and other african communities trying to steal territory to local mafias.....which are not very eager to let them do that.

All that said, we were better when we had only mafia and not immigrates....

You know what, I hate it when people start blaming the immigrants, for it's country problems, better off, why would you be better off with a corrupted government system that no one is tackling. The country always it's problems with the mafia. Who have no idea how to run the country, so stop blaming the immigrates.

Criminals are criminals, doesn't matter if they are immigrants or not. It is this sort of reckless attitude that somehow immigrants deserve more leniency than others that is ruining Italy and indeed most of the world. Italy needs stricter laws regarding this. Those who oppose controlling illegals are haters themselves. They obviously hate their own country.

no one ever bothered the blacks in italy over the years. but lately the ones that come to italy are bringing the criminal element and that is a hard fact. so if you live in a place that was for the most part peaceful (like i said most part ) and you see it change for the worst because of illegals that sucks most italains were very good to the blacks who lived there
