Riots in Schilderswijk, [VERiFiED], Netherlands, 2015-07-04, jointsupp44
Riots erupted in Schilderswijk, the Hague after the alleged death of an Aruban holidaymaker named Mitch Henriquez.
Over 200 people have been detained after five nights of riots in Schilderswijk, where 85% of the residents are second or third generation migrant.
Mitch Henriquez was arrested by Dutch police last sunday at a UB40 concert in Zuiderpark. He allegedly shouted at the police he was armed and consequently resisted arrest. It is claimed by the protesters that he died because of the handling of the suspect by the police - and since prosecutors largely confirmed this theory. Five officers has been suspended and are under investigation.
Local police is vehemently deny racism, pointing out t the fact that one of the arresting officers himself was an Aruban.
Schilderswijk was the scene of violent clashes between pro-ISIS/DAESH protesters and groups aligned with right-wing extremists last August. Sharia Police also patrols the streets of the run-down parts of Schilderswijk.
