    Greece - American tourist Bakari Henderson, 22, beaten to death, July 2017 *Arrests*



    American Bakari Henderson was killed by a group of as many as 15 men because of an argument over a selfie at a bar on a Greek island, police said.


    A confrontation began after Henderson, who was vacationing with friends, asked to take a picture with a waitress, and quickly escalated into a fistfight involving other customers and two bar employees, Greek police spokesman Theodore Chronopoulos told The Washington Post. The 22-year-old recent graduate of the University of Arizona was fatally beaten in a span of just 30 seconds, Chronopoulos said.

    Nine men have been arrested and charged with intentional homicide.

    This is awful. I hope justice is truly served.
    This justice system is so one-sided on so many levels...

    At least the Greek police moved pretty quickly to arrest these guys. Maybe not surprising. With Greece's economy in shambles, they absolutely cannot afford to have their resort areas appear to be unsafe. But this crime is just sickening. Regardless of what instigated it, Henderson was clearly trying to run away when that mob attacked him.

    I'm afraid it was racially motivated, they may have thought he was from Africa.

    American Bakari Henderson was killed by a group of as many as 15 men because of an argument over a selfie at a bar on a Greek island, police said.

    A confrontation began after Henderson, who was vacationing with friends, asked to take a picture with a waitress, and quickly escalated into a fistfight involving other customers and two bar employees, Greek police spokesman Theodore Chronopoulos told The Washington Post. The 22-year-old recent graduate of the University of Arizona was fatally beaten in a span of just 30 seconds, Chronopoulos said.

    “They kicked and punched him to his body and his head,” he said. “His death came from hits in his head.”


    The fight stemmed from a selfie. Greeces is in total shambles and they cannot risk letting this crime unsolved since it involves a tourist.
