05-09-2008 11:50We all know that the Italian state put 3,000 troops including paratroopers on the streets of Milan, Rome and Naples earlier this year. We were unanimous in our condemnation. Pat yourself on the back. But now we get to see what they did. Figures available today confirm that the Italian army has participated in 97 arrests of which 66 people were migrants. Just in case you're bad at soft maths - that indicates that two thirds of military arrests of civilians have been migrants & the arrest rate is about one to every thirty soldiers. In addition to those fascination factoids there have been 263 reports made and 242 car thefts dealt with.
Obviously Italy needs more troops on the street. & minister of the interior Roberto Maroni has confirmed on his webpage and in an interview that Italy is going to get a surge.
