  1. The car assaults are now getting so common in Helsinki. Foreigners know that it is easy to kill people with car. In court they get short sentences. If gun was used, they get long sentence.

  2. Is this why the place goes with nicknames “Speed Square” (in Finnish “Piri Tori”) and “The Mow-Down Town”?
