Where is Lithuania again? Somewhere in Eastern Europe right? I’m sure it must be somewhere that this sort of behavior is tolerated but when you come to the Olympics, please leave all that mess at home.
A Lithuania basketball fan was arrested two days ago when undercover members of Scotland Yard saw him starting racist “Monkey Chants” during the game between Lithuania and Nigeria. To add to the insult, another Lithuanian fan was spotted making Nazi salutes at the black stewardesses a few days before that.
A Scotland Yard representative had this to say “Officers within the basketball area arrested a 32-year-old man on suspicion of a racially aggravated public-order offense. This was the result of a pro-active operation by officers from the Met and stewards following concerns raised by members of the public as to the conduct of a small element of the crowd at a previous event”
This is two incidents from citizens of one country. Maybe there’s something in the water in Lithuania, or maybe in their curriculum. Whatever the case is, it’s classes, and should not be brought to the Olympics. Is there some sort of penalty for the country for this? There should be.
