But you can also count on them not caring.
Seven migrants have been arrested in relation to the callous attack, which was caught on CCTV and shows a group torching the victim as he slept on a platform bench at a Berlin subway station.But we're repeatedly told that we ought to have compassion for the poor homeless refugees. Maybe it's time the left showed more compassion for the homeless than for the colonizers.
The men, aged 15 to 21, are suspected of torching him at Schönleinstraße station and an attempted murder investigation has been launched.
Six of the suspects are Syrian and one is Libyan.
Thomas Neuendorf, the vice chief of the press office at Berlin Police, told German newspaper Bild that detectives believe the 21-year-old is the main perpetrator.
CCTV footage captured them watching and laughing as the man was burning on the platform.
Luckily the victim escaped almost unscathed thanks to the quick intervention of horrified witnesses.
