Hungarian Camera Woman Filmed Tripping Refugees Plans To Sue Facebook, Refugee She Tripped
from the horrible-people dept
You probably recall that during the recent and ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, Petra Laszlo, a camera woman for Hungarian news outlet N1, was recorded tripping refugees and kicking their children as they ran for their lives across the Hungarian border. Laszlo was ultimately fired by her employer, and initially “apologized” for her behavior by trying to claim that she wasn’t an unnecessarily angry racist, she simply tripped and kicked refugees because she thought she was being attacked:
“The camera was shooting, hundreds of migrants broke through the police cordon, one of them rushed to me and I was scared,? she wrote. Then something snapped in me ? I just thought that I was attacked and I have to protect myself. It?s hard to make good decisions at a time when people are in a panic.”
Except in this new video-crazed era, we’re all simply more accountable, and all of the photos and videos taken of her that day pretty clearly show her being an absolutely legendary, insufferable asshole:
“Laszlo told Izvestia that she plans to sue Facebook for allegedly refusing to remove threatening groups on the site while deleting groups that supported her. She has also directed her anger towards Osama Abdul Mohsen, one of the Syrian refugees she kicked, and says she plans to sue him. “He changed his testimony, because he initially blamed the police,” Laszlo said, though she can be clearly seen in two different videos kicking him. “My husband wants to prove my innocence. For him, it is now a matter of honor. It is now a matter of honor.”
And really, what’s more honorable than kicking and tripping children, then suing their families for good measure?
