This is an example on how the image of the Roma is being criminalized. With a black PR action with the kind assistance of the police and gendarmerie. Who cares about the reason for entering the neighborhood, since, apparently, the Roma are presumably criminals because they are dark? Do they sent such amount of police in other neighborhoods?
Yesterday, 22nd July, they sent a gendarmerie and police to the neighborhood in Vidin. The action was “a signal of disturbance of tranquility” but probably came after a order from the top. Absolutely outrageous is this and probably Vidin district will not be the only one with such a share. The targets are clear — a certain group of Bulgarian society must be activated with regard to the fiction “Roma crime.” There is nothing accidental in the Nova TV coverage, which should transmit the clear message.

MASSIVE POLICE OPERATION “SILENCE” IN THE ROMA NEIGHBOORHOOD NOV PAT IN VIDIN
More than 20 patrols, gendarmerie and specialized police went on surprise last night in the Roma district in Vidin.
The action was held at 20:00. All incoming and outgoing cars from the neighborhood were checked.
It is from this part of Vidin that there are usually signals of disturbance of the night calm (a law made by the right-wing and anti-Roma party VMRO).
